Substitute Night Watchman

by OathAlliance - Jam Entry

Hey Phil,
I'm not feeling to well, so if you can be a Sub for my Night watchman position at the Nikola Tesla Museum for the day that'd be great. Management has given me to "Okay". Show up on time and spend the night there. I'll leave you a message with more info later.

In Substitute Night Watchman you play as the unsuspecting Phil who is doing a favor for a friend. Unbenounced to you something is going on. Can you survive the night(8 minutes)?

If you're wanting to stream playing this game and would like to interview me, send me a message on Twitter: @OathAlliance

Game made using Construct 2
Art assets were personally handmade by OathAlliance
Voice Acting and SFX done by OathAlliance
Music: House Of Marionettes by Crowthemusic

First off, I really like the description being in character. As well as the fact that the menu/timer is the main character's phone. Super cool!

The concept is pretty neat, although it was a little unclear at first what I was supposed to be doing. The music was really cool, especially how you changed to pitch to make it seem like you had multiple tracks (sneaky sneaky!)

Definitely could be awesome if you have more time to flesh it out (now that LD is over of course)

That was really hard, but really fun! I only managed to survive 3 minutes. Having three of them after me really put the pressure on! :D

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.
