Don't Look at Me

by ijona - Jam Entry

Looking is not seeing, they say. So don't look! What could be easier? Still, it doesn't mean you'll be able to make any sense of anything in this sick, insane, and constantly SHAPESHIFTING world of ours. For example, this game... actually, it's not even a game. Bwahahaha!

Dudes, I know a bit about strange world, but this go faaaaaaar awaaaaay from home

This is kinda surreal (in a good way). Something that could also feature in a horror film/game. I like it

That was really weird and interesting! It felt a little like a video art installation

Interesting. Not very "fun" but trippy imagery and sounds, I like the style.

For me at least it would have to be a lot weirder to maintain my interest. Still nice to see weird games around.

Yes, it is always welcome to see weird stuff in a jam!
Hard work preparing all those videos´╝ü

I think you did good with the sounds fading in and out, but that was way out there. Good Job on being creative

In one word - weird! Technically, it's really impressive to see how many shaders you could use with the Unreal Engine and all works perfectly. You caught my attention during 5 minutes. Regardless your goal, this is a good entry. Thanks ++

I kinda liked it :) But... I am not sure why

It felt like going around inside your own mind turning off bad dreams or similar; very creepy, but also very pleasing. Good use of sound and the first person perspective.

Apr 23, 2016 @ 2:42am

Very interesting non-standard submission. Thanks for this.

That was just a trip. A+ for creativity.

An interesting experience that certainly creates a form of meta that is surprising as well as intriguing. Would like to know more about what was planned in this game.

In a way, I kind of like the ambiguity of the game, including the part where it turning off on you is a debatable bug vs. feature (I think it's the latter). I'm kind of torn, however, if I feel it's too ambiguous for me to experience an attachment to the game or not. Still, it's a very interesting take on the theme.

okay wired. Guys why is this not a platformer on these platforms ? it would be much cooler

i visited an art installation that felt like this game years ago. weird in a good way.

This place was creepy and I liked it. I felt like darkness coming to end all things bright and loud.

Then it crashed.

Great job!

INTERESTINGLY WEIRD! @_@ *shivers* good job...
game is pretty heavy tho.. u guys could try optimizing and minimizing the file size by watching for and removing unnecessary stuff ^_^ really creepy... but nice!

Bit wierd but fun gameplay. Nice concept

Jacob Peltola says ...
Apr 26, 2016 @ 10:24pm

This was pretty out there, but I would definitely play a polished version of this!

ijona says ...
Apr 26, 2016 @ 10:30pm

Jacob Peltola, yeah, the current version needs polishing, and we are definitely going to do that!

ijona says ...
Apr 26, 2016 @ 10:46pm

@ciaodavinci, unfortunately, in the current version the game ends after a number of clicks. It was intended to end only after you turn off all the forms. We are going to fix that in the post-jam version.

@WERT Studio, if it were a platformer, it would be a very different game... However, it is a nice idea.

@Green Soda, you are right, optimization is coming soon:)

You've certainly aimed for that innovation score, this is insanity!

Apr 28, 2016 @ 3:28pm

Kinda Strange and surreal(I like it)

Had fun wondering about and eventually fell through the floor... Enjoyed it. Get the feeling you would like my VJ app called Chaoslab. Thanks for the trip. :-)

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
