Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Birl should avoid being seen by enemies. He will be seen by enemies as it moves closer to their field of vision. However, he becomes invisible when standing still.
Each person is scared by specific things, keep an eye on their colors to find patterns.
If the time is up, enemies will stop looking at the objects in the room and will go to the door. If they leave the room you'll lose the game.

Great game! The graphics are good, the audio is really great. I really like the overall mood ;) The game is a bit buggy as you said (I got stuck on the desk and had to wait for the man to leave, but he got stuck as well and I had to Alt+F4 the game. Be sure to close the game when Escape is pressed.
I don't really get how to scare some enemies. I tried all the objects on the room, but some enemies just won't get scared, or won't move towards the object that scares them.
In conclusion: a bit buggy, but nice game ;)

The graphics in this game are really amazing! I like the music too, though I'm not sure it's fitting. Concept was nice, a bit trial-and-error, but like the guy above, I got stuck quick.

Extra point for using a midi version of danse macabre. I like the idea, it reminds me of a game I love called Ghost Master. Really nice game ;)

This was great. Took me a little while to figure out the whole color coding thing, but it's a col mechanic.

Good game! Sometimes the people simply dont look at the things they are scared of during a round (as it seemed to me). Very innovative.

Best graphics i've seen so far, and the mucis is really great too. The game is fun yet kinda repetitive, but it's really cool ! Great job

The music and the graphics are great! Maybe give some hint as to what scares the people?

Nice game! Music and graphics were both very nice and worked well together. Would be nice to have some way of guessing what would be more effective against different people, but other than that a solid entry and a good bit of fun.

I really enjoyed playing this. The art and music is super good and the idea was simple enough to just start up and play. Awesome job!

BadRoom's presentation is excellent. Your graphics and sound are good, and I love love love the music. Gameplay was pretty basic, but it fit the concept well. It was a little buggy (I got stuck inside objects a couple of times) but the game's main loop is short enough that having to restart was a small irritation. Good job!

This game is oozing charm, and the graphics and audio all help out with that! It's tons of fun making sure not to get caught and spooking the people out of the room :P Cool work!

oh! Nice! very good idea! And it's also online! Can I find it on indiexpo? I'm making videos about the games of this Jam, but only about the games hosted also on! Tell me if you will add it, so I can include it in my next video ;)

Wonderful concept and amazing pixel art !!! A loved the atmosphere.

I got a bug where I have been trapped on the table with the television (impossible to escape from this table).

It's a very nice entry! Looks and sounds very good! And it's fun to play. Just sometimes it's not clear why people don't get scared.
