Last Night

by ThDen_Wheja_756 - Compo Entry

In this horror game, the player must attempt to sleep on a dark, quiet night. Keep your cursor over the icon in the top to keep your eyes shut. Beware, however. Too little sleep, and you'll lose your mind. If you get too much, you may miss a few important details. Let's just say that the 'bump' in the night may be the last thing you hear.

You could add some more sound fx to create the mood. Also, avoid using saturated colors like the red and blue you used. Especially for horror games. Saturated colors give a childish look to the gmae.

I love games with acoustic clues! The atmosphere really got me at first. But I guess there is no really penalty for seeing or not seeing monsters? So soon I got a lot of balls LOL. Maybe some more complex mechanics can be implemented, but since the game is made in such a short time, I guess it is still good. Also, this game has a quite innovative take on the theme.

The two bars probably should be labelled, at first I though the one on the right was time and the one on the left was some kind of fear bar, as I only noticed it after the first bloodstain appeared, led me to play differently than I would have - ie I probably didn't need to keep my eyes shut as long as I did. I survived the night though, yay.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
