I don't have time to create an exe right now, I'll add one tomorrow.
It requires python 2.6,pygame 1.9 and PIL to run.

It's a stealth game, the goal is to go to the surface, sadly I didn't have time to implement more than one level making this a failure.

Move with WASD, interact with your friend with right click.
Throwing vials isn't implemented.

I had to fix a few issues to keep it from crashing on me (mostly because I'm on Linux) but I'm not going to rate it because I couldn't fix everything and I can't tell if it's a platform issue or just a bug. Right now when I get to the exit I get an IndexError on line 20 of

But from what I played, it's kind of cool. I like the graphics. The controls are slightly clunky, and you can sort of overlap the walls, but I didn't have any trouble getting around. But the fact that it's impossible to die kind of takes away from the challenge, I might have a different takeaway if that had been implemented.

Please use cx_freeze and compile it to exe file (you will have more votes).

I'm with the others. Sadly people won't have time to figure out to run it :(

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.
