You wake up in a cave, nothing left to do but explore it. Beware of the darkness and pitfalls.

Move - WASD
Look - Mouse
Use - Left Mouse
Run - Shift
Jump - Space

Requires a pretty powerful machine, not much gameplay but I've tried to add as much atmosphere as is possible in 3 days. Enjoy!

The game looks very pretty and the atmosphere is spot on I feel. Very impressive for such a short time!

I'm impressed by the graphics and the overall feel of the game. Really has potential as part of the exploration genre. I especially like how the camera moves when you jump.

I don't suppose there is a way to get into that vault? Also, I find that sprinting+jumping on a wall gives me superman jumps. Fun when you get to the bottom and jump right on out :P

Graphics are stunning!
Is there a goal? or an end?
I collected a flashlight and I think i've explored all of the place but still didn't get anywhere :S
has huge potential!

I love the lighting effect. It reminds me of "Dear Esther". Shame there isn't more gameplay. I would love to see this developed further. Well done

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.
