In_His_Mind is a fast paced top down shooter, set to the background of a man who is fighting against an unknown force to get his body back.
It's a short game that should be a lot of fun

Objective: Kill all the white guys through all the stages and face the skinwalker that took control over your body.

Empty weapons are destroyed after being thrown away.
There's no indication of how many bullet's you have left to add a bit of tension. If a weapon is shoot by an enemy before you pick it up, it will be missing the bullet's the enemy already used.

Here are their start values
Double Barrel=2

Controls are:
Shoot - Left Click
Pick up or throw away weapon - Right Click
Restart the stage - R
Move - WASD

Also, you can watch the levelgenerator doing his work before it starts, loading screen in an interesting version.

In case you hate the game THAT much (what i don't think you will) or if you want to rageequit (what i think you will), press ESC

this is my first ludum dare, and i didn't manage to programm everything i wanted into it, but i think it's still an enjoyable result.
have fun.

A slightly more forgiving Hotline Miami :) Doesn't fit the theme but still a lot of fun!

Hey, great job! Like someone said above, it bears similarity to another game, but you also made it your own with the procedural level generation, and I really appreciated that! The mechanics were tight and I never ran into any bugs! Awesome job!

Kind of fun. The variety of weapons helps a lot and the AI is pretty good. Is there any use of the theme. In the description it mentions a skinwalker, but I only ran into the same enemies.

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.
