Hunt the Hunter

by Oxide - Compo Entry

NOTE : If you play the embedded version on Kongregate, a different browser than Chrome is recommended. If you do use Chrome, the game will still work but you need to play in full screen for it to work properly, and you might get framerate issues.


This is a horror where you must hunt down a bloodthirsty monster chasing you. Oh wait, it's the other way around. YOU're the bloodthirsty monster.

You need to kill all the humans in the area to win, but watch out, while you have deadly blades, they have guns and will overpower you if you aren't careful.

To create an opening, you need to scare the enemies to cause them to waste their ammo, panic, or run away. Create an opportunity and attack when you can.

To increase your enemies' panic, you can taunt them, damage them in hit-and-runs, or let them see you. If you do, be sure to leap away before they can damage you!

The way the creature moves is very good and solid. I love the hunt the hunter kind of gameplay and its a good implementation of it.

The movement feeling is great. Once I got the hang of it, it felt very natural leaping around.

I couldn't really tell what the humans were doing at all. I started hearing some dialogue coming from them once I was basically on top of them, but other than that, I had no idea if they were looking for me or scared or ignoring me.

Being able to climb horizontally on walls would be cool, but I know that might be a pain to implement.

Well done!

This game was a bit on the easy side but it was fun. I liked the concept and the controls were very well done. My favorite part was the voice acting and it had a good bit of humor.

The levels were also well designed.

I think some more game play elements could really make this a fun game.

I loved moving around in the game- the only issue I've got is that it was really difficult to tell when I'd actually hit the good guys.

Also the shriek probably should have been a special high-pitched scream rather than one of the generic monster sounds. In any case, I enjoyed it. Good work.

The jump and leap mechanic is very satisfying!

I like leaping around and pouncing on the hunters.

Overall a fun experience, although I find it to be very hard to play even against one opponent. The movement seems a bit floaty and the humans seemingly never run out of ammo :D. Great concept, great game.

Pretty solid game, but I had no clue what the human was doing. The whole taunting and scaring thing didn't really work out for me either, the guy just kept shooting at me with no end of bullets in sight.

The graphics, level design, and audio were really great! I found the movement really intuitive and enjoyed jumping around from crate to crate in the warehouse. A little hard.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
