She's watching you...

by HUMANICS - Jam Entry

walk using WASD, mouse/arrow keys
interact with F

=========================================================

We used our own custom graphics engine.
Sorry for the character animation :) Some models are grabbed from the web, as are some textures.
Requires OpenGL 4.0 (DirectX 11 capable hardware should be fine).

Linux version is up (tested on Ubuntu 14.04).

It seems like I can't play it. When I launch the game, I hear "buzz buzz" and see a blue rectangle in the bottom-left part of my screen.

That's sad. Probably you don't have OpenGL 4.0 capable Hardware. Could you please send the first line of the ld31.log file?

Can't play the game! All I see is a big blue rectangle on the bottom-left side of the screen. :(

This oint of view can be a nice survival-horror style like the olders resident evil.

Bravo for creating your own graphics engine, I guess I can't be too upset that there isn't a mac friendly version available :(

A bit confusing and the animation is kind of hilarious but cool that you've made your own engine and ambitious going 3d!

controls are difficult to use

Very eerie! Props to you for using a custom graphics engine. While it made for some rough edges, I think you managed to convey the mood of your game really well! Gives off an old-school survival horror vibe, while being a twist on the classical 'fixed point of view'. I did end up being a tad disappointed by the actual ending, bug mad props nonetheless!

It's cool that you made your own engine thingy and it fits the theme however it isn't anything for me.

I liked the idea of it, but I think there needed to be more detail in the scenes. Otherwise, since everything is nearly homogenous, it's very difficult to navigate around. I'm impressed that you both made the engine, however!

Good job with the surveillance camera thing. The character, removes some of the spooky feeling, because of the stiffness. Also I walk around for ages but found nothing... A bit more continuous "feedback" is always good to keep the gamer happy! :)

Good job on the game!

Very spooky game indeed. For the time-span this is excellent, great work!

The dead body that lying at the bed, the strange sounds — all of this give a good prologue to the creepy story. But the camera position made me suffer. :c

Awesome work...was kinda scary...

Dec 9, 2014 @ 9:36pm

scary game. kudos for the graphic engine you made!
the controls are a bit hard, not because of the camera changing positions i think, but because the character is always facing the same direction

It seems like I have... A higher than supported GLSL version?

Would be happy to play if you could tell me how this can be fixed (or if you could fix it). <3

@magnontobi: You are using the free OpenGL implementation Mesa (version 10.5), which implements OpenGL 3.0 (with 4.0 being required).
Installing a proprietary graphics driver would probably solve the problem, provided your graphics card is capable.

I liked the creepy feel the game had, too bad nothing interesting actually happened for the majority of it. The creepy feel made me kind of expect more xP

Haha, couldn't download but saw the youtube one. Its like the old text games with no screen, but you put a screen on it. haha, looks fantastic

This game has a very good feel of environment. But the control is kind of disorienting and rooms kind of look the same everywhere... Also, maybe locked doors can have a locked sound when you try to open them. But overall it is still good and the ending is surprising. I think the camera (looking at the television) is also tilting subtly which makes you feel dizzy, which is a good game mechanics. Nice take on the theme, too.

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.
