Not bad,
At first I didn't understand when i lost.
You should add instructions or better feedbacks when we die :)
Anyways, good job

At first I was dying a lot and then I realized you had to kind of sneak around the enemies or dodge them.

I like the light effect and overall color scheme; it sets the mood.

I found the gameplay mechanics fun once I'd read some comments and figured out how it worked! The attack animation could have been more visible. Nice music and stealthy dark aesthetics.

Nice music but I found it difficult to stab those cubes in the back with the controls.

Was the Attack meant to do anything? Good idea but not fully developed. Good music too.

I was looking forward to playing the game but the keyboard input didn't work. Well the W and S keys didn't but the R key did, the mouse movement worked perfectly. Great music and nice mood otherwise. Well done! :)

I beat all the enemies I could see, but then I got killed by an invisible guy. I didn't really get where I was supposed to go. It didn't seem very thematic. I'll rate again once I'm on a computer where I can hear the sound.

If you want not change the game, place instruction on this page, please. I see the work, but I can't understand what I've to do.

TackoramaLtd yeah if you hit them twice it kills the cube enemies, but I made the collider too small so you must get super close.

AnaglyphCoding Are you holding down the W or S key? because if you are just pressing them it won't work.

RobotSoulsGames Honestly got no clue how you could die by invisible enemy, yes it's not very close to theme. Originally it was supposed to be a slasher type game where you kill all enemies in the level and move to the next one, I was scripting some enemies where they simply ran away from you but didn't work the way I wanted and had to cut them out thus was left with these cube enemies. the tile of this game describes my experience working on it. One thing I learned is to prepare for a game jam, I only found out about Ludum Dare33 some twenty four hours after it started.

n8b the goal of the game is just to kill all the enemies you find. It's my fault for not saying what to do inside the game sorry.

Overall thanks for the feedback from everyone and I really hope I can make a better game next time.

The music seems overly dramatic.

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.
