Subject 74

by chobrah - Compo Entry

Subject 74 has broken free of his cell. He must escape the research facility to win back his freedom.

My audio filters don't work in the web version, shame. Download win version if you can be bothered :)

W,S,A,D - Movement
E - Shape-shifts into an object that is right in front of you (about 3 metre range)
Space - Depending on your shape-shifted form, you may have a special ability to activate

Being shape-shifted drains your energy, if your energy reaches zero you will revert to your original form. You can always revert to your original form by pressing [E] again. Energy is restored when in your original form.

It's great, very funny. Excellent work on the AI! I really like how you can trick the enemies into shooting each other. I got stuck on the level with 2 lasers because I am unco.

Wow this is just altogether very impressive! If you'd like to know what my favorite part of all of this is, other than the comedic narration. It's the camera pans both at the beginning of the game, and the beginning of the levels. Makes a big difference for me.

Best use of shapeshifting I've seen so far; really great work! I would definitely keep working on it!

That intro made me laugh out loud :D

Nice grasp on the theme, nice puzzles. Very nice!

Only criticism I had was that I wish the alarm was just a bit quieter :D

This was hilarious haha! Where's his pants?? lol Funny and fun game to play. I was able to just go through the wall though as a rat when trying to avoid the lasers. The sounds could be better, but the narration was perfect haha! good work and entry.

The alarm is annoying. Adding a snarky comment about that isn't going to make it less annoying :P

Really funny (but hard) game though, love the enemy dialogue!

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.
