Well. What to say 0_o
This was an experience for sure. The overlay was very headache-inducing. I liked the creepiness of the music and the guys face. Couldn't get very far because it hurt my head unfortunately :(

Great mood! Creepy art, liked the TTS also.

Oh jeez that was creepy...!
Sweet work, it all fit together really well...
Not sure about the pausing every time it said something though, it kinda disrupted the games flow...

Chrome told me that a variable called 'meSpeak' on line 26 was not defined, but I still heard all the creepy speaking...

Thanks for the all the comments :) Oh, and sorry about the headache(s)!

Xeke_Death: Yeah, not too happy about pausing the game either. Unfortunately the TTS eats so much CPU when processing that a few frame updates are missed, making the physics fail and causes all entities to drop through the platforms :/

Eerie and dizzying, what the heaven that I just play? :D
Quite slow to play on my laptop, so I can't play it to the fullest of it's potential. Looks really promising though...

Love it. Lots of points for mood. Shooting felt a little clunky but this added to the desperation.

It looks unique, but it doesn't play unique.

The look and feel are quite creepy, but the gameplay itself is fairly vanilla

Yikes! That was a scary experience.

What a garish digital acid trip. Too bad the gameplay wasn't on par with the graphics.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
