Hide, Mr. Hyde

by glimaleite - Jam Entry

Mr. Jekyll is having a terrible day.
He hates his job.
His paycheck is a joke.
And his 'lovely' boss won't give him a break.
Give in to your Anger and go find your Boss.
Just don't get seen nor caught before you find him.

Hide, Mr. Hyde is a puzzle stealth game in which you have to control your inner monster to get to your boss.

----Notes----
Due to having some other commitments, we only managed to work on the game on Sunday and Monday. We believe we made something fun, but we didn't have time enough to make tons of levels or to make an ending, unfortunately. We hope you have fun, even if it's for a really, really short time!

-- Update August, 25th --
Changed the hosting to itch.io, the previous one was kind of unstable.

The art is really nice, and the AI works (which is an achievement in itself); it seems like you were able to get something fairly complex done! The game could have used some sound, it would have helped communicate the levels of alertness and self-control. Apart from that, it's a pretty solid entry! :)

Great idea! Really played out well and made a cool little game =)

Loved the introduction of new mechanics throughout the game. At first I thought it would be pretty repetitive, but I found myself surprised by each new level. Very night work.

Nice game! Got stuck on the first level for a while (expected to be able to walk in human form, and clicking is a weird button to use if it's not)
Fun art, and like Vaida said, nice AI!

Neat idea and awesome art, but I couldn't juggle the controls well enough to enjoy playing it.

Excellent entry, I didn't seem to have any sound so I sure was missing it. The level design was excellent and the depth in the gameplay was really something to take notice of. I really hope you guys do more with this I am impressed!

Just uploaded on itch.io now. I don't think I will have any more issues with hosting anymore! Thanks everybody for the feedback!

Wow, these graphics are amazing! This is surprisingly solid and I didn't run into any glitches considering how complicated this seems. Some more sounds would've been nice, though, I get if you were too tied up with other things to really do it.

Nice game. Interesting take on the stealth genre. Impressive amount of polish and cute graphics. All together nice package

Wow, love the art and the premise of the game lends itself really nicely to the stealth genre. I did experience some glitches at level 2 (being able to walk by undetected) which was to be expected, but overall this is a really fun game and I hope to see it further developed!

Loved the Dr. Jekyll and Mr.Hyde theme! Great mechanics and artwork! Missed the audio but I understand the lack of time~
I had one bug where after people alert the guard I would just keep being Mr. Jekyll and so the guard would stop by my side. And then, when self-control was over, I would be Mr. Hyde and still the guard would not notice me.

Very solid and polished stealth game. The best stealth game I have played so far. Difficult but fun. Good job.

Nice graphics! Space to kill? Not working for me...

Guoboism, you wont kill anyone on this game, hehe. Space will interact with stuff only. Thanks for the feedback!

it's short but it's nicely done. Good use of the theme. If you decide to make a post-jam version with more levels, let me know :)

Nice graphics! Very interesting gameplay! Congrats!

Lovely graphics, felt that the game glitched a bit for me maybe? Or maybe I just didnt get it. I included it in part 29 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/s8htp2RZS7I

Beautiful style!
The combination of theme and stealth was really well done.

Wish you luck in future with this game :)

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.
