Is it a bug, that other zombies aren't moving? Seems kind of pointless to me this way...

oh, psychedelic music and gameplay: When i get clsoe by zombie, rapidly shoot all my bullets and go dead =)
Sweety feelings!

If the zombies aren't moving just restart the map by pressing escape, it is a bug, but I haven't worked out what's causing it yet.

Quick tip: If you're making a survival horror-ish game and you really want music, make it very subtle. Also, switching the assets around isn't enough to make the player feel like a zombie. The gameplay is in complete contradiction to the "story of the game" and it felt like I was the human trying to kill zombies. Oh well, good luck next time :D

Yeah, it would be different if I was decent at art. xD

If you hold down the left mousebutton and spam "R" you can shoot ultra-fast.

Ummm... That's a glitch then. -_-

Seems more like I'm a person than a monster.

Quite liked this game. The music was a bit scratchy and repetitive. Also I felt this was not great use of the theme. However this is a nice entry, good work.

The flashlight effect is pretty neat! Are the zombies supposed to be invincible?

Found this hilarious bug where the zomb.. ahem... humans just end up moonwalking to you all the time. They don't even damage you because they're turned away.

Loved the lighting.
Overall it was a very uninspired and bland game. But that didn't kept it from being very fun!
My highscore was 12340.

Doesn't really fit the theme (you're not really acting like a monster), but the gameplay is pretty fun. The graphics could have been better, especially for a Jam game. The sound effects were good, but the music felt like it was scratching my brain.

The flashlight thing is pretty neat though, improves the mood a lot.

Feels odd because the main character feels like a normal person and the people feel like zombies coming towards me... a mis-understanding of the theme? Also, why would a zombie have a gun? Why would people run towards a zombie at all??

I made it for the compo but wasn't happy it would do well so I entered it in the Jam, the game was made in two days.

It's fun! I didn't feel like a monster, but it's a great zombie shoot-em-up.

Fun little game :) Music was a bit distracting though

Totally think that the flashlight effect and soundtrack were the positive points on all this. Negative ones i would say the concept as we are not really the monster here and a coupe bugs like the supreme speed shooting while pressing R and the "friendly" zombies.

God, this zombie love using weapon!? ------
-------Feint! This guy is a human!
All zombies attack you is the evidence!

I suck at FPS, but its a nice little game! I included it in part 1 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)

Not really fiiting the theme, but otherwise, an okay-ish shooter. The flashlight's ability to light areas behind the walls is not really fitting as well.

Aug 25, 2015 @ 9:19pm

I cant seem to kill the enemies and my screen gets cluttered with null reference exception. I feel if you made the enemies just get destroyed and just add an end message after the are all killed the game would feel complete(not sure if you had the time). Also got a glitch where I had 4 guys firing at the same time, was pretty crazy. Good effort.

Seems like every other amateur TDS out there. I didn't feel like I was a zombie fighting humans. It felt like the other way around. Just saying it, doesn't make it so. (My zombie game wasn't much better. lol) Nice lighting, tho! :) Keep on keepin' on!

I like the considerable amount of polishness in this game, keep it up :)

Aug 27, 2015 @ 8:13am

I found the control system difficult to use - would be nicer to just move in the direction I'm facing.

Little hard shooter. I wish I had more powerful guns.

Nice idea, would be a lot better if it was a little bit more polished and had better controls. Good job though!

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.
