Really nice! Well done! I love the art style and the experience you managed to create. About the theme, I didn't really get the you are the monster, but the rope and the blood splattered jacket maybe means that you killed someone? Anyway, GOOD JOB!

Best entry I've seen, graphics are excellent, voice acting is good, the game is CREEPY, I was actually SCARED playing this and usually I have a hard time being scared. Winner of this jam for me. Reminds of a scene of "In the mouth of Madness".

Just a bit negative about the fringe effect, it's too strong, maybe it's just my computer that does it, as in your screenshots it looks less strong.

Oh wow. This is amazing! I'm a little biased towards horror games, but seriously, this is one of the most impressive entrees I've played so far. From the graphics to the atmosphere, great stuff!

Great atmosphere and production values, though it seemed kind of arbitrary what causes you to die.

That was creepy. It took me a few tries before I managed to see stuff on the backseat, but I am glad I did. One of the best entries I've tried so far.

Great game. Awesome graphics and sound. The mechanincs confused me for a while. I never was quite sure wether the air conditioning (I think) was on or off.

The game looks awesome!

Everything was impressive, right from the main menu and all the way through the game-play. Great graphics, great sounds and genuinely scary (although that might just be because I'm bad at horror games :) ).

There were minor downsides to the experience, such as the mouse not being confined to the window or not being exactly sure what exactly constitutes an usable object (I tried closing the green light on the dashboard multiple times). Perhaps a thin outline when hovering with the mouse could show exactly what you can interact with. It was probably just me, but I couldn't figure out how to on the car, despite reading your instructions.

The other minor nitpick is that although the initial cut-scene can be skipped, the discussion on the telephone can't. That made trying to retry the game much more annoying after sitting through the discussion several times before.

Overall, great work, the end result is scary, well polished and an amazing looker!

Download doesn't seem to launch :( Is there any country restriction or something is down?

Grhyll says ...

Finally the download worked, and... damn, this really is scary '_'
I loved it, very nice atmosphere! I would have loved just some more clues, I'm not totally sure about what happened now...

I don't know why but the game doesn't work on my computer, when I am in the car, I clicked everywhere but nothing ever happened :/

At least I can already tell that the graphics and audio are amazing.

Wow, cool graphics.

Sep 8, 2015 @ 7:16pm

Very well made game. I included it in part 21 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/sSjPmVXpfX4

Mouse isn't locked to the screen, so if I push it too far to the right and click, it minimizes the game.

I finally managed to interact with the game. I didn't find what to do but that was a great experience ! Very good entry !

Sep 11, 2015 @ 11:58pm

This is so cool! One question. Did you place the wipers' switch so close to the ignition on purpose to enphasize the panic sensation? Or was it a happy accident? :P

dcolgan says ...
Sep 12, 2015 @ 2:38am

That was a pretty good scare. It really got me in the nearly wet my pants kind of category. Atmosphere is amazing.

Very stylish stuff, though I think the story might have been a bit too obtuse and subtly told for most people to get it (myself included -- I only have a vague idea about what happened in the end). You've definitely got the atmosphere down -- having been in a couple of similar dicey situations with a car at night myself recently, this was definitely evocative of that.

The voice acting wasn't always easy to hear or understand, but a decent enough performance for the most part, though the main character did have a bit of an odd accent.

My other annoyance was that I kept accidentally mousing over to my other screen and then clicking the game minimised while playing. Not sure of the technical details behind this with regards to Unity, but maybe there is a way you can restrict the mouse to one screen during play?

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.
