Really nice concept this. Took me a while to realise you couldn't jump or anything at which point I went, "oooooh!"

Very cool mechanic. Could be communicated better, but for a jam-game it definately did the job.

Cool game with a nice concept! I had som problems with SPACE where sometimes it didn't make things happen. Overall an innovative experience.

Can't get past the don't touch the light screen nothing happens what so ever, tried pressing all keys and clicking everywhere with the mouse. Is this a bug or am I being stupid?

@seledorn : Try using arrow keys. If nothing happens, then it's a bug.

Neat concept, I like it. Needs an indicator at the start to tell you that you should start moving in a direction - I didn't actually know what to do. Also I found a bug in one of the levels:

Hi there. Interesting idea, sort of stealth game, but different. Found it too tricky to coordinate taps on <Space> and movement once that part start. Shame no sounds or music. Good job!

For masters of stealth. Different mechanical appreciated. Congratulations

Interesting concept, shame that it does not fit into the theme. At least for me. :)

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
