I got to the title screen, but don't know how to start the game.

I was able to extract and play, but when I loaded it up there was just a swinging lantern and nothing else. It didn't seem to respond to input.

I also couldn't get past the title screen. Just a swinging lantern and it didn't seem to respond to input.

Apr 19, 2016 @ 3:12am

Doesnt work for me either, sorry! It gets me to a title screen, don`t know how to get past it.

Interesting but takes too long to get through. A little more guidance, and some sound maybe, but overall decent.

I too can only get to the title screen :(

I got the game started, but I'm not sure how - it eventually moved beyond the title screen.

I feel like the game world is a bit too big for this sort of game - the premise is alright, but there's a lot of wandering around just trying to find something to interact with.

(Also: you don't need those .pdb files when you package up a Unity game - the download will be a bunch smaller without them.)

The game looks really cool but I see the swinging light with the super cool background. I've tried hitting everybody and mouse but it does not appear to work. It does look awesome though!

I'm not sure how I started the game (I just mashed my keyboard until something happened, haha). Overall, gameplay was okay. I felt at some points, though, that I was aimlessly wandering. You don't really have much to go on as far as where the items are. The world did feel very large and detailed though.

Can't play the game. only see a menu.

Got stuck at the menu.

Would not recommend uploading a .rar file in this day and age ;) was very annoyed to have huge debug files included too

Apr 19, 2016 @ 3:29am

Was able to run game, but stuck at cool-looking swinging-lantern title screen. Wish I could have played... [Key Input?]

I couldn't get past the menu

Apr 19, 2016 @ 3:34am

I was able to start the game and get beyond the menu. However, I was not able to collect the bones no matter how much I tried. It was very difficult to move around the world, too many invisible walls. Loved the ghosts and villagers, and the overall concept is solid.

Stuck on lantern too.

Guys, sorry for all the initials errors and weird things, unfortunately we couldn't finish the game 100%. Press Enter or Left mouse click to enter the game. Thanks for playing and sorry again.

Clicking, pressing enter, mashing the keyboard, etc. etc. did not work. -- It just sat there at a weird title screen with a swinging lamp. :(

We tried solve the errors, but we don't know what really happened to our project. It's now a hide and seek game, try find the ingredients listed on your home before the time runs out and the inner beast takes the control you! Sorry guys!

Really really nice environment. Camera was a bit wonky.

Gave up on the berries. Did you build all this art and envir from scratch? That's impressive. Massacred the whole village ( why is the hero killing them, i thought he wasnt transformed yet)

This was a fun little adventure.

I really liked the assets and the world you made, I wish there was less fog though, so I could see it better and keep my bearings. Some more direction might have helped too, but identifying the landmarks hinted at what they contained (except the mushroom which seemed just randomly placed).

I couldn't pick up the bones. I saw them on the ground and looked at them best I could and pressed E, but it wouldn't collect them, I'm guessing this is a bug.

A basic hide and seek title which can be fun! Shapeshifting in narrative.

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.
