Turn-based movement works really well

good idea just a bit too clunky.

After I realized the AI movement was turned based the game got cooler. Nice!

Definitely liking the turn-based controls and the stealth element goes well with it. The "No Yeti" doormat gave me a good chuckle.

Very fun game. As others have said turn based AI was really fun, also difficulty was just about right. They kept escaping.

Turn-based stealth game sounds like a good idea to me :) Couldn't win, though. When two people were left there's always been a message saying one has escaped and warned all others.

Download link doesn't seem to work. Nothing loads, just a white page.

Hey Slashee. Thanks for the feedback. I just tested it and it worked for me. I'm using Google Drive to share, may be with another browser it will work.

I don't like that the trees don't seem to block their vision much (any?). Took a while to figure out how it works but it's interesting, worth playing.

Overall pretty fun game. Tried to play strategically at first by luring people into the woods 1 by 1. Eventually found it more effective to just Yeti-mode and just run at them.

I enjoyed this game. -Otis

Nice game. Turn-based movement was a great choice, made it a very strategic affair. I had difficult understanding why people were getting suspicious, even if I killed someone completely out of sight of the others. Felt a bit too punishing. Still had a fun time with it trying to disentangle the systems. Increasing the music tempo was a nice touch. Good work!

good entry!some points that i notice: the yeti's movement isn't really fluid, the sound is a bit lound and acute, it's hard to keep the stealth mechanic. But it's a good idea and have a good potencial too! nice job

ooh, that was interesting. Took me a while, but I've found a good strategy to attack and finally mummy would be proud :D hehehe. cool entry and nice use of the theme. I also liked how music's speed increases the tension.

Fun entry! Surprising amount of content, I love the concept behind this. The movement sounds are a little annoying, but overall this game had a great style and feel to it. Nice job!

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.
