A good idea and a great game.

Very well-executed--the UI and graphics are impressive for a weekend game jam. The levels seem pretty challenging; I finally gave up a few levels in because stealth games aren't my thing.

Really cool game, impressive 3D graphics for such a short time. I couldn't find any shapeshifting elements though, maybe I didn't get far enough? I kind of suck at stealth games haha

Very well done, this could be expanded into a full game. Nice graphics and great style with the characters.

Very well done. The art is really impressive for a jam and the game is pretty hard, but very fun. Great job!

Ok first when the player told me "I need to find the others" i run into the enemy, so he betrayed me. Good level creation, nice idea, and good use of line of sight

I cry so much. I just have failed for about 10 minutes to get mirage to shapeshift into one of the guards. I found the one guard who got green highlights on mousehover however I clicked every mousebutton to no avail. Tried it with mirage selected and without. Guess there's a bug? Or he can't shapeshift if a wall is in the way? But how do I open the green door then? Wha! Anyways - super cool game. I'm kind of a sucker for cellshading-lowpoly games - so this entry really struck a note. :) Also the control theme was quite nice. Definetely a game which demands a little more time then your regular LD-Entry. I liked it and was sad to give up on completing it. Despite that quite the amazing amount of polish and content (I presume!)

Nice idea. A bit hard to control, but I guess this is part of the challenge. :)

Really well presented game. However, clicking on things is really tough. The controls don't respond very well. If you could clear this up it'd be great!

Apr 21, 2016 @ 3:57am

Great level design and everything looks polished! Especially the UI. Well done!

Really good gameplay mechanics and the presentation was also really nice. I thought the blue line visualizing your path was really cool.

I died a few times when I played as Vice and then I wished the player(s) would move around a little faster.

Overall a really good entry though, congrats!

Nice game! I like your timelapse video, too. I don't know how to stealth at the second enemy (when the enemy stand on the middle of the way). :(

I couldn't figure out how to beat the level where Mirage says "Getting dark isn't it?" at the start so I feel like I kinda missed out not being able to see the third character and all but good mood you achieved either way. The little loop song thing is pretty relaxing and puts some nice tension

Lovely stealth game. The engaging gameplay is made that much tense by the awesome music. The art's very nice as well, reminds me of VR missions from Metal Gear Solid. Very solid and exceptionally good for a compo entry.

The game is pretty fun. I found it a bit tough in some areas but others could completely cheese by just continuing to morph.

Reaaally impressive scripting of the guards, behaviors, and the game overall. Loved the simple aesthetics and nice looping background sounds. A really solid little game. VERY challenging though.

Loved the art style for this game, The predictive nature of the mouse clicking was very impressive for a jam game.

Good game here, I wish the player would have the freedom to see the whole of the map or at least a bit further.. Besides that all the best :D

Very impressive compo entry. Nice simplistic 3D graphics and moodsetting music. I really enjoyed the puzzle solving stealth levels.

There was a problem with the camera though. The first time I found the second character, I ran him up to the exit disguised as a guard and deselected him to get the other guy up there. The camera centered between the two, and neither was in frame... so I could no longer select anyone. Didn't find a way to move the camera, so if there is... it's just me who couldn't figure it out.

Either way - a nice and unique stealth game that could definitely be developed further.

Superb idea. Though I kinda laughed when I saw the enemies look at walls :D...

Great level of quality for a compo entry. I really liked the character animations. Good puzzles and solid gameplay. (I noticed some bugs, but very small ones.) I enjoyed playing.

Cool and Wonderful as usual! and sorry to me comment your game so late. feel very happiness that there are this type game to play in LD! it reminds me of the game<Commandos 2> ,my super love!
i found that it was inherit (also have evolved )the style as your previous entries,also your super powerful level-design content, cool fun and complete as usual!
played in web,a liitle bit slow run (i think it is because my computer and web status) so it cause the difficulty a little bit harder,btw,the red enemies really hard to deal with.(but when knock it down,feel very achievability,also when i got the"vice", this game become much fun!)
otherwise,this time i feel these level have more great rhythm and layers(about the visual/ zone-struct),then to my surprise about everything become more vivid and diversification,well done. these all let me feel this game is worth to play more deeply and to collect/save in computer for future ~ cheers! (also hope to see more your great game in future!_)

when the game says "I need to find the others" right when the enemies appeared for the first time, I thought the "others" were these guys in front of me, it's not a good feeling to have misleading information rolling around the game :(

I think the enemies should be more "blocky", they look like floating around, it makes really hard to find out which way the will look or move
look at the first metal gear solid, each enemy have its movement really highlighted, he turns, then stop, he moves foward, then stop, he turns, then stop
get it?

Well, the game is really great but needs a lot of improvements
Nice work! :D

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.
