Try to run to the next trench. Life expectancy is 10 seconds.

This game has been frantically developed (ha ha), by Bojan, Mirko and myself.

Downloading from Mega feels sketchy and requires a bit of hoop jumping.

Run wouldnt Run on my pc. I downloaded it and it would not open :/

I just downloaded it and it's ok. You should be getting a .rar archive, 16.2 MB large.

The idea of a soldier running out of a trench is interesting, I like it. But I hardly run for 4 seconds before dying, so it's hard.
I think this idea can make a great game if you work on it again. :)

LOL the voice at the start, amazing. And apparently I completely missed the point but won? Nice game tho!

Nice concept....but wath's the strange voice on the begining.

@iterative deepening

It's supposed to be a general, giving a speech before a charge. :D It's silly, I know.

No, we missed the point while making this game. You were a good soldier. Have a cigar. :)

Like the idea of running to the next trench. One I haven't seen so far!

Good idea that could be great with more polish. Didn't like having to wait for the blahblahblah at the start each time.

Thanks. I knew that it would be annoying, but we didn't have the time to implement some intro skipping.

Wuuhwhuu whuuuu hwuuu GOOOO ! Runs nicely on my computer, a good starting point for a game, more clear objectives would be nice and a real voice instead of that general dude :)

A nice attempt but could have done with a little more fleshing out.

fantastic concept, but could be a little easier, sometimes it feels quite random if you die, or perhaps it's just my computer that's too slow.

i can actually see this turned into a lengthy experience, so please keep working on it.

Nice atmosphere

Great job, totally has that dark nightmarish feel like in "All Quiet on the Western Front". You guys successfully made a game in 72 hours that has more impact and meaning than every modern dudebro shooterfield war game put together. Well done. Also nice spin on the theme.

Thanks for the comments! I really didn't expect anybody to like it. Actually, I expected the Spanish Inquisition. :D

I liked the speech at the start.

Haha, that was awesome. Loved the speech at the start, made me larf every time. And yeah I died a lot.

Haven't seen a game like this and it was so cool to see. I did have one question though, who was I and who was I fighting against? That's two questions...meh.

Wuuhuu wuh wuh whuuhhuhuh. :D

Thanks! :)

You were a Serbian soldier, fighting against Central Powers in WWI at the Salonika front.


You were a platypus, disguised as a human, fighting against The Three Pigs in a war over construction material domination.


You were a pizza delivery guy who got an order of one Roasted Garlic and Peppers and one large Margherita, and they are starting to get cold.


You were an invisible man, but you forgot your pants in the trench yonder. Some stuff are also getting cold here.

Take your pick. :D

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.
