Can You Defeat Them?

by overallcyber - Jam Entry

This game takes place inside a maze where you must collect objects and fight off enemies in hopes of freeing the people. The atmosphere is somewhat creepy, so if you don't like creepy stuff, don't play this game. Oh, and also, [Spoiler Alert] if you have trouble with flashing lights and colors or have epilepsy, don't play this game. You use the arrow keys to move and to use the sword, you click on the enemy.

Btw, I used GameMaker Studio 1.4 to make this.

I'm not sure if I was briefed on how to use the sword... Ctrl, Enter, Space, and all the keys I tried didn't work =(

Wow this was spooky. I was getting a little bored at first then the first screen flicker scared me haha. Great atmosphere. I would have liked to see some more graphics though, the blocks you used are one of the default GameMaker assets. Nice entry.

Please name your link "Windows" instead of "Download Game". exe files only work on Windows.

I got a bit confused about whether I was doing the right thing... I couldn't seem to do anything with the sword, unless there was another special place to go to that I didn't find, or a key that I didn't work out...

Silly ending, but pretty fun game. There wasn't really any challenge, I think either limiting attacks/actions to proximity to the player somehow would have improved this the most.

Need to tell the player how to use the sword

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.
