Great game. The art looks great. The controls were a little funky, but not bad.

I got stuck on the dancing level. The wall collisions were a bit strange. Great graphics though!

This game was great. The art, the execution of the theme, the strategy. All awesome. I had a lot of fun with it.

Great game! controls doesn't feel right, though. stabbing only works facing left. And the character moves a bit weird...

Oh my god. If you clean up the controls and collision I would totally buy this game.

Great artwork! Stabbing was a bit of a precise work... gameplay wise you probably need a few more interactable things.

The hitboxes were a bit strange to me but Art looks awesome!

Awesome! Everything in this one is good! Controls aren't 100% but I kind of feel like that adds to the lumbering Jason Voorhies style. A little polish and I would pay for this one!

Amazing, great art and idea. Good job!

Awesome ! I agree with the other comments about everything (collision problem + nice graphics). I don't have anything left to say. It would be cool to add some music later ;)

Aug 27, 2015 @ 8:53am

Awesome game :P, love de art and theme.

Argh if the hit detection in the stabbing worked better it would be a great puzzle game. Right now I found myself cursing more often than not. The graphics are great and the gameplay itself has a lot of potential, just work on that stabbing thing and you'll have a very nice game there.

Whoah this game is really nice!
I like the pixel art you made, it's great! :D
The gameplay is smooth and enjoyable and sometime a little challenging!
Well done!

Got a little frustrated with the guy's movement speed but it's got super pretty pixel art :)

Aug 27, 2015 @ 10:32am

The idea is good, the game is very fun and we have discovered our psyco face!

Nice animations

Amazing game, a little difficult but very fun!

This is a very neat game, the animations and detail are so good! It was hard to get used to the hit detection though. It's a shame that there's no audio.

A nice tweak would be to have walls that have smaller collider, but add some kind of transparency when the player is behind them. Great game, keep it up!

Aug 27, 2015 @ 8:16pm

Great idea! Would have loved a little help on level 3, but overall could see this as a great full game

Jerre says ...

Looks very nice, nice idea also, but controls not very good, and sadly no music, couldve done with some annoying too loud young peoples music ;)

Awesome and fun game. With good graphics and animation.

Well done, the gameplay is very polished for a ldjam game imo. The pixel art and animations are also great.

Pixel art and gameplay are great! This game with a creepy sound would be awesome!

Beautiful graphics, great idea. One of the best games I've seen this LD

Simple and efficient, I enjoyed the game but no music :/ it's too bad, he would have been great with some audio! Animation and graphics are nice, so great entry! good job!

Really good game. Loved the switching to slasher mode idea :)

Very good game with some dark atmosphere gameplay. I particularly liked the scenario with the dancing because I felt like that added more to the world you were creating in this game with these teenage parties. I loved the graphics in this game, some of the best pixel art work I've seen in a Ludum Dare game jam. Overall, cool game. :)

+1 to previous comments concerning control improvement and buying it afterwards)

The subject matter fits the theme quite well. The core mechanics are simple but the gameplay is fun enough to balance it out. I like the graphical style and overall this has potential to be a really great polished game.

Loved the art and felt cool switching between killer and normal guy :D

Nice mechanic and good use of the theme! Good graphics too!

kidando says ...
Sep 7, 2015 @ 1:48pm

Solid solid solid entry dude. Your graphics were just 'killer' :). But seriously, the quality blow me away

scorched says ...
Sep 7, 2015 @ 8:03pm

Mechanics are similar to those of my game, but way better graphics! Completed all levels.
For some reason sometimes with the knife in hand I walk right, but sprite is oriented to left, also some text in the first level is under the objects.

Great art! The gameplay was good, but it was a bit too difficult to hit the... eh, targets?

radmars says ...
Sep 7, 2015 @ 10:10pm

Oh man, add some awesome/creepy/intense audio and music to this to really amp up the atmosphere! Really nice combination of puzzle and stealth gameplay. Each level felt unique and interesting. Wish I could stab up/down; I definitely lost a couple times cause of that.

Great stuff. Creepy, fun, with great visuals. It was begging for some sound.

Wonderful game~~!!
Hope you choose a bgm which you love in new version~
there are a small bug in level2.
when the girl and the man escape to the exit-trigger together~
game not restart... so i killed them then i win this level...
level3 is genius~ if people not notice the dialogue,they may not find the key to achieve their goals~(just like me...>u<)

Awesome job, Only thing missing was sound. Loved it.

Sep 8, 2015 @ 6:15pm

Pretty solid entry. Wish there were some actual voices and sound!

Sep 8, 2015 @ 8:28pm

The game looks absolutely lovely.

I love the animations on the antagonist, it was a little annoying trying to catch fleeing victims though.

Nice cereal killer game, It was pretty interesting to have that set up room, remembers me of Dexter in a Cthulu-ish ritual way, awesome!

I think that this entry is one of the best games of this edition. Awesome job, I love it :-)

Kinda reminds me of Party Hard, but that's not a bad thing - I wish there were more games like this :)

MapleQuest says ...
Sep 12, 2015 @ 8:31pm

This is really fun! What a clever idea!

The hit detection was a little weird at times, and the lack of depth to walls (colliding with the top of a wall, for example) but not a big deal.

The last level took some timing that was a bit tight.

Overall I really like this one a lot! Some basic sounds, even from bxfr or something, would have gone a long way to help.

Quite an awesome game, I liked the core mechanic and the theme use. Part action game and part puzzle game.

well done!

Xanjos says ...

Lack of audio kills it (excuse the unintentional pun :P) but I absolutely loved the concept plus you've nailed the theme very well. Also that last level was pretty hard but very clever at the same time.

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 ( 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.
