Human Complex

by Shpuld - Jam Entry


Human Complex is a first person stealth game.
You play as a test subject for an experiment that didn't go as planned, as you gained superhuman speed and strength, but they were not able to contain you.

You're trying to navigate your way out of the complex one area at the time, but armed guards and automatic security turrets are making it harder for you. In order to make it out alive, you need to think fast and move fast. A slow monster is a dead monster.


-WSAD to move
-Mouse to look
-CTRL for crouch
-SHIFT for walk
-SPACE and MOUSE2 for jump
-MOUSE1 for attack


-Programming, graphics, level design: Shpuld
-Music, sound: Pitchatan

-Runs on the FTE QuakeWorld engine by Spike

I liked the variety of levels! The art and animation of the bad guys were also really nice. I didn't really get a feel for the "You are the Monster" theme, though. Not a bad stealth game though, I enjoyed my playthrough!

Nice game, but has NOTHING to do with the theme!

Wonderful game! It kinda went with the theme. The enemies could shoot through boxes and they were a bit hard.

Pretty nice! I liked the concept of the first person stealth, but 3rd level is RIDICULOUSLY hard! :)

Don't really see what it has to do with the theme. You could be Sam Fisher sneaking through there instead of a monster and it wouldn't really make much difference. Still was a good stealth game, the AI was about as intelligent as you'd expect in a stealth game (without the advantage of having so much time to work on it, so good). Two things I would change are I'd add audible footsteps so you can hear how much noise you're making, and just to make the game a little easier I'd make the guards more alert for a second when they notice you, and if you can hide in that time they go back to their patrol. But that's just what I'd do, overall pretty good.

Very nice game! It could be a bit hard, but I was able to do the old Quake Engine bunnyhop though levels.

Great Job!

Good mood and fun to sneak around in, all-round polished nicely!

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.
