Out Of Time

by spliter - Jam Entry

You're a top spy on a top secret top mission of top importance.
But you've ran out of time! You only have 10 seconds left before the world is destroyed and all human civilization wiped away by the ultra-nuclear fusion reactor of Dr.Bad , what will you do?

Arrow keys to move
z to interact
Enter to apply code (numpad enter doesn't work)
ESC exits the open item

Protip: Grab a pen and paper. You'll probably want to jolt down some notes.

Sorry you can't run the game, I'll fix it as soon as I can (probaly when I return home from work)

Ok, the game is supposedly fixed but I can't test it on other PCs.

Good game, but no sound, only one level and debug functions still were shown. Also, the game didn't even start until I downloaded this DLL and placed it in the game's main directory -

Thanks a lot Gear and Kacperski (Esp kacperski) I've included the missing file, and it should be running now. As for the debug functions: I didn't have time to look for how to disable the console.

Your update fixed it--works on my end. Just a note for the others: the Enter key on the number pad won't work for the door keypad.

I thought it was fun. I have a poor short-term memory so I had to write down the two number sequences. The animation when you lose is actually more fun than the victory screen. Collision with walls is a bit... generous. Good job overall.

Somewhat short, but at least it didn't overstay its welcome :P decent use of the theme, and with good handling. Good job :)

Great job! 10 seconds is a BIT to short, I think 15 was better. Tooks me about 20 times to even get to the keypad. Overall pretty great. Awesome graphics, great use of the theme. Could have used some sound and or music, but oh well. (I can't add sound in SDL, so.) Keep it up!

No sound, but that was pretty cute. A few of my deaths felt like it was because lining myself up with things was a bit dodgy, but otherwise p. cool.

Really cool game. Felt really good to finish it. Nice work!

Took me a few tries to figure out what I was supposed to do, but it was pretty neat! Loved the idea of reversing time to achieve something that takes more than 10 seconds in 10 seconds

Very good game, I really like the use of the theme.
The game is short, but it's worth it :)

Cool little game and funny outro image :) Would like bigger game out of this

Thanks Mental Atrophy, I hadn't seen the entire animation, it makes a lot of sense now! It's too bad that the game is so short, I would have liked to keep playing. One addition that would have been great would be to randomly generate new passwords and codes at each playthrough, in order to add some replay value to the game.

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 ( 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.
