Nice, dark game.
The level design is nice, even if there is in effect only one design with a few objects moved around a bit.
Dynamic lighting is very pretty, and all of the resources are done to a high standard.

Love the mood, the audio and the mechanic of luring enemies to common deadly traips, but collision detection on the hook is meh.

Amazing graphics, interesting exploration-based gameplay... Only complaint is that the moment is a bit slow, but other than that, all very good... Excelent aesthetics!

Apr 28, 2014 @ 8:46pm

Neat graphics, a little dark and hard to see on my laptop screen, though.

Quite a nice game, I really like how it uses the light system, and the music is really catchy. I don't like how it restarts suddenly if you even get close to a hook tho: a sound or some sort of warning would have been really cool!

I think this is the highest score I've been given yet, I really enjoyed it, the graphics are amazingly well done and the game all in all is really cool, I did have a hard time finding the exits tho :)

Apr 28, 2014 @ 9:12pm

Cool idea!

Apr 28, 2014 @ 9:15pm

BEST LD game I've ever play for sure. The graphics, audio, collisions... Just everything is perfect.

Really neat graphics! The gameplay felt a bit slow, but the engine was nice and solid; I liked the shark-luring gameplay.

The mood in this game is great! It didn't really make intuitive sense to me that touching the side of a fishing line would kill you.

Really nice work !
I like the atmosphere !
(the fish is maybe to slow)

A bit slow paced, but good graphics and general feel of the game.

If you could just find a way to make everything else completely dark and maybe make the minimap brighter and maybe add one checkpont I think the game would be much better

Cool Game.You Know what i mean.

Not too bad. Nice control of mood.
I could really use some checkpoints. I gave up after losing a lot of progress. (sorry)

Nice mood, although a bit too dark for me. Keep up with the good work! :)

Very cool. Nice mood

Love the graphics and feel of this game! I included it in part 5 of my Ludum Dare compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out :)

May 1, 2014 @ 8:33am

Nice exploration game, the mood is great although it will gain with a little bit more of contrast (I ended up playing only with the minimap cause I couldnt see the rest).

Cool game and graphics, but it was a bit hard to see

I liked the aesthetics of the game and its simplicity. However, I would have liked to have of a challenge for exploration to be more exciting.

Nice game. I wish there was some checkpoints, but I liked details like light and coral reef and fish animations. Good job!

Pretty cool game graphics and mecanism.
Exploration is a bit hard, I wish my lamp to light a bit more far.

I know it's supposed to be dark, but I still had trouble spotting where I was going. With that being said however, I really like the graphics, and the music was very fitting.

The level kept starting over... was I dying? It was too dark to see anything.

I've always loved these deep water fish.
Why haven't anyone made a game about them before?
(or maybe someone has?)

@PaperBlurt follow me and you will see the final result of this game on andorid :)

Good colors and graphics - they create a wonderful mood.
I would have loved a bit more different shapes for the corals/spikes but that's a minor issue.

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.
