Flight of the Night

by popcorn897 - Jam Entry

A child with horrible nightmares, you must run from monsters and try to stay in the light!

I think it's obvious we didn't finish. Very close, but there are very few sound effects, and no music. Also a few textures had to be made by the programmer and now subtract from the overall look of the game.

All criticisms are appreciated!

Sorry to anyone not on Windows. I don't have the capability to do anything but Windows.

P.S. If anyone makes it past 30,000, you are insane and I am sorry

This game would of been epic if it had musica.

Addictive art style. The game mechanism is easy and clear, the operation goes smooth (although when you keep sprint it is easily to get stuck before jump).

The difficulty curve works smooth, from only run/jump with no risk, to the first weapon, to the first place you could die (yeah, drowning, :D). Nice work! If it is not a Jam entry you definitely do it better.

It's a nice idea, allthough not to innovative. And there could have bin a bit background music. Nice grafics though, so all in all good work.

Really neat art style. BTW, I didn't pass 30,000 - not even close ;)

I loved the "limbo" feel to this. Great idea and I hope you guys decide to finish it! :)

Nice job!

Had a good mood to it, with nice graphics. A shame the background sounds didn't loop, would've helped with the mood even more. I don't see how this fits with the theme though.

Background didn't loop for you? It is definitely supposed to.

Looks really good, the light/fear mechanic is interesting and works well, the mood is sufficiently dark. Some background noises would definitely take it even further, but it works well on its own. Good job!

Graphics are great, theme felt a little forced however.

Nice graphics, but the controls felt kinda choppy to me. The kid is trying to run through walls. The running animation looks silly, could use a few extra frames. Also there's a child running around carrying a firearm. Obviously it's for fighting against monsters and the kid is having a dream, but could you not make it something else/more creative? Could use some BGM as well. Overall, there is something, but not all that much. Nice try though.

Like the graphics and the lighting! I Included it in part 14 of my Ludum Dare 31 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out :)

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.
