Very nice art!! The music is also really good. Too bad the gameplay is about replaying it over and over again until you know where the keys are hidden.

I like the art style. The attacking/movement could use some work though.

It was a bit annoying to have to go back to the very beginning when I screwed up (even slightly).
However, this is a nice take on the theme, and the graphics are awesome.
Great job!

Nice art and music!
I liked the mechanic of the "if you hold space you're moving faster and attacking" thing, you used it well with the rooms where there's a lot of boxes.

But I'm not sure about the die and retry stuff, well could be fun and there's some great ideas (like the room where there is 2 keys and if you found one and think "well I have one key I can run now", you're gonna die. this is great), but the game is really too slow for this. If we could just run and get the keys that would be fine, but we're always waiting for the screen to move..

Oh and talking of the screen...
Yes, you COULD say that there's just one screen and it's moving.. But.. for me it doesnt fit the theme well.
Because we can't always see the entire game on the screen..
But there's just one level, I agree on that :p

nice jam. Hope you had fun in family :D

This is difficult! It's really good at creating a frantic mood. Unfortunately I feel like at a certain point it's unwinnable; in one room I got all the boxes but found no key. I suppose you'll have time to fix that, though. Anyway, the graphics are charming and the music is good, so good job!

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.
