Lost in the Darkby KristinnEs - 48 Hour Compo Entry
You find yourself lost in a dark maze. The light you have barely gives you an idea of what is around you. You hear growling in the distance and voices whispering in the dark.
On your watch a countdown has started. It says 10 seconds! what could that mean?
Ten seconds later a light appears above the maze, illuminating it, and its inhabitants for short periods before plunging everything back into darkness. As time goes on the pattern repeats itself. It might be your imagination but you think the light periods might be growing shorter.
The light makes one final appearance before the darkness engulfs everything once more. This time it is different. You hear something slamming in the distance.
Could it be? Am I stuck in here with these... monsters?
Am I lost? I must escape... help...
Find your way through the maze using WASD to move, Q and E to strafe and space to fire at the monsters. Every ten seconds you will be given an overview of the maze to help you find your way. Use the time well.
The tools used were Unity3D, Blender and photoshop.
Attached are screenshots from the game as well as one showing off the maze generator in action.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
