The Warehouse

by dallonf - Compo Entry

Another late night at the warehouse. You are trying to sort the last boxes so you can go home. But the lights are going a bit funny and - wait, what was that? Probably nothi- NINJA'D!

The Warehouse is a game about mundane work, bad electricity, and ninjas. And, of course, it's all on one screen.

Use the arrow keys or WASD to move.

Very funny! Super hard though. I didn't even notice the ninja at first.

Cool stuff. Weeping Angels are tricky.

Waaay to slow for me though.

I enjoyed the incorporation of the ninja, that made a great addition to the game. Great job!

Very hard! But nice concept! In a future version I would like to see ways to avoid the ninjas, not just by keeping your distance. Traps or something?

Good job!

Damn ninjas! Nice game.

Nice idea but little bit too hard

Dec 10, 2014 @ 12:28pm

This is like crying angels from Doctor Who! Not so hard by gameplay, but makes tension great.

Really cool, starting out (seemingly) boring and then showing the ninjas was pretty cool (if that's the effect you were going for). Really simple but the threat of ninjas in a place where they normally wouldn't be makes really fun. The speed of the game could be increased I feel, but still good nonetheless.

It's tough but a brilliant and fun idea. Reminds me a bit of Blink (Dr. Who).

Awesome simple game, lots of fun! Would have loved to see it horror themed, perhaps with a flash light so you don't always know exactly where the "ninjas" are. Great job!

This game has potential, however it seemed to random and the spawn points of the Ninja's mixed with your own starting point made the levels a little to hard for my liking. If you released a full post compo version I would most likely give it a try though.

Great game!
"OMG more creepy-ass ninjas" DEAD!
got 7/9 boxes so far

Haha nice, I only got to 5 boxes before I got shurikens all up in my face. Was fun, I particularly liked the footsteps emulating a heart beat -- made it nice and tense. My only criticism is that effect you have with it randomly flickering the lights and making a sound, that kind of feedback made me think I was doing something wrong or getting hurt, but I don't think I was? Overall cool game though!

Nice game. Pretty difficult though.

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.
