Pretty good idea for a game, I do however find the graphics confusing (not clear which ones are the harassers) and I got stuck inside a friend-symbol (I think it was a friend at least). The soundtrack is cool though!

Good idea. If you continue to develop it, since sexual harassment don't just take place on street some level can be at home, at work, at school etc. Also there's no need to clearly identify the harassers since they can be almost everyone, not just bums.

It's good idea to raise up serious theme, but realization not good enough to share with friends.

Good theme, but there were a few problems in the implementation.

Besides avoiding the harassers, the player has to avoid getting stuck. Friends are more of a danger than a help because they will block the player from moving, and sometimes get the player completely stuck.

Did you use a box collider on the player? Because I had trouble sneaking around corners without getting momentarily stuck. Perhaps you should consider a circle collider for the player if you didn't.

Another option would be to be able to pass through friends. It's very problematic that you see an opening to get through the enemies and win, but your friends block it.

I was able to win after a few plays, so it certainly isn't impossible, but I did avoid making any friends to make it easier to win.

Last point, I couldn't see any way to retry after losing except to end the program and restart.

Nice music, and unlike some other commenters I thought the graphics were pretty clear about what was what. I think it's just a few gameplay issues that get in the way of the message here.

Good idea and nice try though!

I agree with what others have said about the friends being a hazard that block your path. It also wasn't clear under what circumstances my "health" bar would deplete, or even what that health bar represented.
I also didn't find the music very appropriate. For women, walking and trying to avoid street harassment is tense, but the music made it sound like a scene in an action movie!

I like that you took a simple avoidance mechanic and tried to say something important with it. Best of luck if you continue developing this!

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.
