Game has a great mood to it! Mind you, genuinely thought that the spider scorpions were only going to be visible on the screen and invisible in the first person view!

I think that the player on the map needs to be made a little clearer (since you have very limited movement to compare to see where you are!

Great work and wish you the very best of luck with the competition!

I find the map very difficult to use, and struggle to figure out my own position on it. Interesting concept, though.

This is an enjoyably terrifying game. That spider is creepy. The atmospheric sounds are really cool. I am pretty sure that no matter what difficulty level I choose it selects insane ;)

The Game is very difficult but I liked it that way. I've been able to beat Easy and Medium Working on beating hard right now.

Very nice!
Really tense atmosphere, and not be able to move while looking at your tablet worked really well.
Also the sprint mechanic was really good.

Very good job!!!

Nice mood, but the RenderTexture (?) you're probably using to draw the tablet was broken.

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.
