One Refuge To Keep

by Zhrack - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Hello everyone!
This is my compo entry! It's a stealth game about hot and cold. I'm not a modeler, so no good graphics here, sorry for that. :(

Wood is scattered across the map, so search for a blue light!

EDIT: Corrected minor bugs with camera and enemies sight!

Hope you enjoy it!

Really nice! Love the graphics and the atmosphere. I like the sounds the enemies make when they lock on to you, that's my favorite part. Finding the wood was a little difficult, I only managed to find one piece!

Thank you guys! Wood respawns randomly across the map, and there are many respawn points in houses!

Liked the athmosphere. Especially the sound from the enemies.. had something scary to it. A mini-map would be nice though.

well made, camera was a bit wonky and could use minimap or at least compass to know how to get back to refuge

The camera work is a combination of great and annoying. It's great when you're moving fast in the proper direction, since it shows you a lot with a nice angle, but it's annoying when you're moving back, since you can't really see where you're going. Other than that a nice effort!

Graphics aren't bad. Really good mood and sound effects. I spent a bit of time fighting with the camera, and i wasn't sure if there was much to find, but still enjoyable.

Love the sound effects and the theme (I used a fire-based one as well!). At first the camera seemed wonky, but then it started accentuating the mood. =)

If you revisit this, as an experiment, try swaps those bricks for ice blocks, and change the ground to snow. =)

I feel thrown back playing this game, the graphics aren't there but the tension is. Nicely done!

Love Unity Capsules! ;)
And my game is about freezing!
Nice compo entry!

Nicely done! I like the color palette and the sound effect, just the camera annoys a bit for backward movements.

Keep goin' ;)

Thank you guys! Your feedbacks are very important to me! I've modified the camera a bit, now it stays right even when going south! Also corrected a minor bug with enemies!

It would be really helpful to be able to move the camera. The light effects are really cool, they help to set nice atmosphere. A solid entry, good job.

Despite the graphics, it's a nice game with stealth mechanics and a survival theme.

Cool idea, but for me it is a bit to slow... Also as others has mentioned, it would be cool if you could see in the direction your going...

Dec 25, 2013 @ 9:28pm

Nice game mechanics. I like the survival idea very much ! Great work with the stealth system !

I liked the glow that the logs and the enemies had. Wasn't quite sure what to do after I found 5 pieces. It would have been nice to be able to free look with the camera to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Thank you all for your feedbacks!

@ratboy: this is an endless game, you keep on collecting logs. There always are logs in the level.

About camera movement: i didn't manage to code it, but i'll make a more complete game in future. I like this concept.

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.
