Knight Time

by Muffinhat - Jam Entry

You're trapped in a maze full of sentient ancient weaponry that seek to destroy you. You have a gun. Make it to the end of each maze. Good luck.

Created by Aaron Kitchen, Matthew Oakes, Jacob McPeak, Caleb Klomparens, and Will Podpechan

-The goal in each maze should look like a yellow-ish cube.
-The other boxes in the maze are ammo for the two gun types.

very nice and polished, took me while to figure out the guns but it was very fun, i can totaly see it as a bigger game on steam(with more development and features)

Very nice game! I died so quickly );
If I'm not wrong - great use of normal maps and height maps! The graphic style is the real winner in this game - combining retro style with modern animations and particle systems.
Sounds are nice, too.

Overall - the game is really nice, polished, and for 72 hours it's a worthwhile game!

Woah, that's well done. Good mood, nice gameplay, procedurally generated mazes. That's awesome :)

Nice, very nice! Took me a while to figure out the teleport gun. The second click was kind of surprise but other than that very nice! Good job, especially for 72 hours!

Nicely done, very good looking game.
Didn't know how to pass second level, but then realized that teleport gun shoots through walls :D

And on the third level there was some king of model on the half of level -

This is one of the better games i've played so far.

On the first level I had to teleport through the wall to reach the goal, I don't know if that was what you had to do but it was a lucky guess by me. Another thing that was weird was that when the music was done, it didn't repeat.

Also, I agree with pyokoanarogue about the swords because they were small and the projectiles didn't go super fast, so it was hard to destroy them.

Other than that, this game was great.

Thanks so much for all of the feedback!

Just want to point out that one thing that we didn't clearly communicate is that walls are destructible (although you can teleport through them just the same lol)!

loved the art! but I got into a maze where the enemies where trapped and I couldn't get in. The weapon speed it's very slow and need more feedback. I liked the concept of the teleport gun. And the FOV could be a little more wide. Keep working on it!

lol - it reminds me my first game on Desura "escape from the bunker". Honestly, you could increase gameplay speed. An interesting entry. Well done ++

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. Many solo participants 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.
