The link doesn't work for me.
My computer "can't find the server" :(

Neat concept! I think it fits the theme nicely. I couldn't play it very well as I don't have a keypad on my keyboard.

Cool idea, really well made and pretty fun if you play it the right way! Unfortunately, I discovered that you can easily prevent all prisoners from leaving by running your finger across the number buttons... Apart from this (and your title, it's "them"!) solid entry!

It's simple fun! I like it. However, not everyone has a keypad on their keyboard, including me. :( Maybe have a secondary set of controls for those people?

In any case, well done! It was fun to play.

aha..I like the title mashup of somthing like a crossover between john carpenters 'they live' and Don Siegels 'Escape from Alcatraz' but in reality this game is pretty sick in a fun way..definitely needs some sounds and a bit more depth in gameplay, perhaps pooring some steaming hot lava down that escape hole as a bonus round ?..either way nice job

Sorry for the sound, did not have any sound designer on the team so we had no time to look for some sounds. But we're working on it right now. = D

Regarding the controls, you can also use a XBox control to play by using the analogues. But we are working on a customizable control within the game. Once we finish we will notify you. ;D

good use of theme, cool control mechanic, Without much ramping up in difficulty or level breaks i did get bored of it pretty quick.

Nice idea! Controls were easy but not everyone has a numpad. This game could be a good quick fix game for iOS and android! great job!

It's so hard to play without the numpad!

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.
