Your name is *yourName*
After seeing an appealing ad on the newspaper, you accepted to become a test subject of a bunch of scientist. See on the right side of this panel? That's YOU. Yeah, and THEY did it to you. You are a MOVING BOX.
With a kind... of.... I guess it's a tail?
So, you had enough of the testings (you want to at least keep your eye balls...), and today is the big day.

Contols:
Right click - Movement
Q key - Stun enemy (Only works from behind)
W key - Decoy. Enemies will follow the decoy (unless they already see you)
E key - Pounce. It's like a little dash. Try it!
R key - Chameleon. If you are standing still, and you are not in the line of sight of an enemy, you blend with enviroment and become invisible

Special thanks to my friend Giovanni.

EDIT: 08-05_12:50 PM - Fixed bugs in enemy detection and level restart. Added level that was left out of the final build(Whoops!). Added Web link

Really enjoyed the overall feel of this game. The dark corridors and single point of light added to the spooky mood of an evil science lab.
Restarting the game doesn't always seem to work properly.
Instructions on how to use different abilities would also be helpful.

I did enjoy the light physics on this one although a tutorial on how to use the abilities other than Stun would be deeply appreciated. Also, the game freezes after a restart.

The lighting effects set the mood quite well and the overall feel of the game is good. Any sort of indication on how to use the abilities would be helpful. I had no luck getting restart to work, so had to quit and start the game every time I got caught.

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.
