    Proletarian Ninja X - deepnight - 48 Hour Compo Entry


    LEFT CLICK - move / kill
    RIGHT CLICK - throw shuriken


    The year is 1930. You are the Proletarian Ninja X. Your mission: kill every single capitalist on Earth.

    Problem is: you really have many many people on your Kill List. Consequently, you definitely cannot spend more than 10 SECONDS on each contract.

    Great game deepnight! Enjoyed the concept of killing silently. You deserve a 10! ;)

    This is simply amazing! So polished and awesome! :D

    The combo-system is a great addition! I'll definitely come back later to play this game again. =D

    I found the difficulty curve too step though. I really tried to "get it" and learn it but levels 4 (or was it 5?) was soooo hard.

    But great idea and execution as always. The graphics are beautiful as usual. And lot of small little details; the smoke when he runs and the cool jumping animation :)

    Amazing. Super fun and addicting. A little hard but well worth it. Good job.

    Aug 26, 2013 @ 9:11am

    Good one, but where's the music? :) One thing I would have like is to improve aiming of the shuriken so you don't have to be extremely precise.

    Derbdale says ...
    Aug 26, 2013 @ 9:59am

    Sound stops working after level 1, other than that it's a great game. Really fun!

    Aug 26, 2013 @ 8:11pm

    Ninja games FTW! For such a simple game, it's really tricky to balance between the required hiding time, and the pressing 10s limit. Very good little game, spot on for the mood and the balance.

    moonmagic says ...
    Aug 26, 2013 @ 10:39pm

    This is really satisfying, lots of juice. Would be stronger without the exposition at the beginning. The title says it all; additional explanation feels heavyhanded.

    Awesome game, one of the best things I've seen on this ld edition.

    Aug 27, 2013 @ 12:14am

    Omg... this game is so AWESOME! Is this really made in 48h??? You are a genius :) Difficulty is hard++ but it is so much fun to kill proletarians :D saved in the fav-list ^^

    Aug 27, 2013 @ 12:17am

    Really solid as usual, good use of theme this time!

    KeithE. says ...
    Aug 27, 2013 @ 12:19am

    Alright, this was great. I really liked how simplified the controls were. An amazing amount of depth for a 48 hour game. Great job!

    Aug 27, 2013 @ 12:46am

    This game is brilliant. By far my favorite game played!! Its amazing, specially for only taking 48 hours. I included it in my compilation video of LD27 games, if you wanna check it out :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhxp6zWGaGM

    Whoa. Incredible, VERY polished game. One of my favorites, for sure.

    Could probably be sold on some DL services, and I bet it would sell well.

    DissidentDan says ...
    Aug 27, 2013 @ 2:24am

    Fun and addicting. Gets absurdly difficult. Very, very trial-and-error type of game.

    SaintHeiser says ...
    Aug 27, 2013 @ 5:49am

    As usual great looking.
    But slightly frustrating and controls as usual are awful. Can't beat the game with that terrible controls..

    Gabriel says ...
    Aug 27, 2013 @ 6:37am

    Very interesting controls! And uses very well the theme while still making sense as a game. Great work as usual, I'm a fan of your work! :)

    graytest says ...
    Aug 27, 2013 @ 7:21am

    This game is amazing! It feels very polished and complete. It is in a level of its own compared to my and many other LD games.

    Aug 27, 2013 @ 8:10am

    Absolutely amazing work!!! Well done!

    Colapsydo says ...
    Aug 27, 2013 @ 8:10am

    Since you did it in a reduce amount of time, it's even more impressive.
    What's next ? Will you type your code with only one hand ?

    Hypnohustla says ...
    Aug 27, 2013 @ 10:32am

    Pretty goddamn good. Love the control mechanic. The feel was great and the use of theme was good. Very solid game! :)

    Aug 27, 2013 @ 10:46am

    The best, as usual :)

    01101101 says ...
    Aug 27, 2013 @ 10:57am

    So much fun! It's really satisfying to find a good way of killing them all, kinda makes me want to replay the level and try to beat my time ^^
    Graphics are really nice too, love how you leave a mess of blood and flesh bits in your wake :D

    Aug 27, 2013 @ 8:04pm

    Surprisingly difficult, and it really turns into a sort of challenge against yourself to remain focused and calm after repeated failures. Great concept, nice interpretation of theme, and really innovative take on stealth games.

    Aug 27, 2013 @ 8:44pm

    Love the graphics, especially the animations and the little touches like jumping over the table, and it feels really nice to play. Great idea for the game too, the 10 second thing almost holds it back. Would work really well as a slow planning puzzle game.

    aquilicoco says ...
    Aug 27, 2013 @ 9:05pm

    Great game!! The graphics are great too :)

    ddionisio says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 12:46am

    Damn this game is difficult, I'm not cut out for this ninja stuff! There's so much to worry about: getting spotted, corpse spot, then 10 seconds time limit! Yikes! Even with the shurikens being able to kill in a straight line. Great visuals and effects! Plus, high replayability. Mad props for a 48-hour game!

    Zer0Kelvin says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 5:41am

    Fast and brutal! Very nice! :)

    Pierrec says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 6:44am

    This might be my favorite deppnight's LD entry since the time-travelling pygmee. It's also the hardest, mainly because of the time limit. I would like to play this game without the 10 seconds limit, but hey...that was the theme after all (jumping above tables was awesome)

    Mesene says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 7:16am

    Awesome, like always :)

    Best game so far on this #27 LD to me! No doubt! Nice story, brilliant graphics with sweet animations, complex but fun game mechanics... absolutely AMAZING JOB!

    Jools64 says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 2:37pm

    Beautiful game.

    The graphics are excellent, the great sprites and tiles mixed with the cool lighting effects really make the game incredibly polished looking.

    The game-play was really fast paced and fun. I thought the difficulty curve felt fairly natural although it did get too hard for me eventually. The implementation of the theme fit the game well.

    The sounds where nice but it's a shame that the game didn't have any music.

    Excellent work!

    Jorqell says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 2:39pm

    I simply can't believe you made this within 48h, that's totally unreal

    if this had some nice audio to go along with the fluid gameplay and amazing graphics, I totally would pay money for it

    please consider releasing this on mobile platforms

    incredibly well done!

    spitfire87 says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 4:52pm

    Very polished graphics, controls and original stealth mechanics. Its pretty hard. Well done.

    Aug 28, 2013 @ 4:55pm

    Really fun and frantic, great take on the theme. Visual style is fantastic with vivid colors and textures, as usual with your stuff :P The only critique I have is that the little icon highlighting your target position is lost after the first level. Not sure if that was intentional or not, but it would have been helpful for a game that required such precision.

    muclemente says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 4:55pm

    Can't imagine what you would do if you got this theme since the beginning of the Jam! You would have the twice amount of time available for awesomeness :D

    Good luck.

    Beardbotnik says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 5:35pm

    Fantastic game, the controls worked really well, the concept was fun and the graphics are beautiful. There is an extremely large sense of gratification when you can take out large amounts of fancy men in succession under the time constraints. Really makes you feel like a ninja from the movies. This game would be perfect if it had a little music to go with it. Awesome work!

    Mago says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 5:41pm

    Great game! As usual :)

    Dissing says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 7:30pm

    Awesome game and beautiful graphics as always. Though it annoy me that the guards could detect a corpse even though they you die a millisecond later. But otherwise a really nice and hard game. (I like hard games!)

    Unept says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 7:35pm

    Add me to the butt-kissers list. ;)

    Very cool game, loved the gameplay and graphical style. There have been a lot of games in a similar style, but most had collision and control issues that kept them from awesoming all over the place like this one does.

    Funny, my game is sort of opposite in scope, though it also has a ninja in it. somewhere.

    Tifu says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 8:14pm

    I got what I assume was pretty far (large dining room with a kind of L shaped corridor in bottom left, guards standing on dining tables), but it was too difficult at that point, it would be hard enough without a time limit D:
    Very good job of what I did experience though, love the graphics and the simple but very challenging mechanics.

    paraple-geek says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 9:11pm

    Really enjoyed the game! Will you do an extended one, maybe without the 10 second limits ? the gameplay is really good!

    Zammy says ...
    Aug 28, 2013 @ 9:46pm

    Amazing and really funny! :) I don't know how you've managed to do so much in so little time! (Bow)!!!
    Incredible job! The best game I've seen so far...

    Death to bourgeois !!!
    The game is great but it tooks me time to understand the fact that a bourgeois seeing a corpse mean instant death.

    Everyone should check that timelapse, here reside the true way of the ninja gamemaker.
    And by the way, this guy is a lyar. He want us to believe he made all of this in 48h... but he did it in 24H. I had to write that somewhere because he dont brag enough about it.

    Like The Famous Myamoto Musashi Samurai, your obstination brings your art to the top.
    Even if i really prefer your narrative games, this one is maybe the best arcade game you ever made for Ludum Dare. You bring speed in an infiltration game wich are usually so slow (Solid snake struggling in the mud makes me crazy)

    Fantastic for a 48 hour entry. Really enjoyed playing. Thanks.

    Jeremias says ...
    Aug 29, 2013 @ 1:48pm

    Fun concept and very nice visuals. I felt the selecting of a target a bit frustrating, as my ninja often stands near the target instead of killing him. Anyway, just awesome!

    RHY3756547 says ...
    Aug 29, 2013 @ 5:10pm

    Deserves to win outright. Addictive, cool, amazingly well animated and produced. Visceral, silent and deadly...
    I spent so long trying to perfect and pass the later stages - just brilliant.

    Great graphics again. The gameplay, flow and audio aren't as good as your last few entries. Way to set the bar too high for yourself :p Still getting a great rating.

    Superb game. Great theme and wonderful gameplay. The last levels are very hard, I need to think a way to finish the lasdt of them, because as more I tried, I cant find the way to success.

    Aug 30, 2013 @ 10:20am

    As always, very impressive, and very solid game. The level shown in your main screenshot is way too hard though :D

    It's a really good game but the difficulty increases to fast. I can't go over the fourth level.

    Aug 30, 2013 @ 4:35pm

    Fun game! Super hard but very polished, dig the graphics and simple controls, nice work!

    Really difficult after the first level but very good as well :)

    Aug 31, 2013 @ 7:05am

    Great stuff as always. LIke some mentioned above, after 4-5 levels it just got too hard too fast. Loved the idea and simple mouse controls. The ninja also looked great moving around :)

    Holy crap. Infuriatingly hard, but very satisfying. Graphics and sound amazing as always. Felt very powerful playing this. Loved the little attentions to detail such as jumping over furniture. Only criticisms I could give is that some levels felt out of place in the difficulty curve, the 3rd and I think 5th in particular. Also, I felt that getting caught for discovering a corpse was a bit too brutal given that the guy catching me would die with the same shuriken (pretty much instantly). Could not finish this game but got a lot further than I thought I would and felt very satisfied by that.

    Pretty damn good. Shame the baddies seem to spot corpses if they're still in the process of looking away.

    Nice implementation, good graphics but it really gets annoying quickly. Or maybe I just lack the patience for that type of game.

    paulmcgg says ...
    Aug 31, 2013 @ 11:03pm

    Nice art, loved jumping over tables. Not a huge fan of the stealth particularly having the enemies spot corpses. But this is a really tight game, good feel. Really well made!

    Sep 1, 2013 @ 2:10pm

    The best entry I've seen so far and the only one that deserves 5/5 for theme.
    The only problem is the difficulty curve. I'm stuck at the level from the screenshot and it's several times harder than the previous one.

    I do hope to see post LD version of this game.

    Wow! That's a fantastic game and a great accomplishment in 48 hours! The concept of the game is very nice, and the gameplay was amazing; simple but both hard and fun. Really nice animations and graphics.

    Who would pay a ninja to destroy capitalism? A proletarian ninja who killing the rich, is is in a way to bite the hand that feeds you.

    Awesome. Graphics are great. Cool take on the theme too. Reminds me of Hotline Miami a bit, except with more brandy and top hats. Nice job!

    That last level was intense! There was a bit of a bug where one of the guards in the last level would mistakenly locate a corpse that wasn't near him--seemed to occur when I made a kill while he was turning. Other than that, great work! Really needs a catchy 10-second audio loop for each level though ;)

    Great game. Getting the grove of a level and just blasting through it leaving a trail of body bits in your wake has a really good feel to it. Sometimes you gotta work a bit to get that balance between going fast enough, but not too fast (so you don't misclick and run past someone (which is thrilling on its own if you manage to recover from it), or that guy down the hall doesn't spot you despite having your shuriken in his face), which has sort of a rewarding thrill when you get it right.

    Really nice game! The levels were hard, but not impossible, so when you finally got through one of the later levels, you feel like you really accomplished something!

    Awesome work! I put over 40 minutes in this game! I saw this for like the 100th time though, stealth really doesn't fit the theme. I know your point was to get these like streamline speed runs, but it felt more like a stressful Hotline Miami to me. That is another thing! This game is very similar to Hotline Miami! I love that. Nice polished graphics, good sounds, nice animations. 8/10.
