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

Heart Heist

by SleepyStudios - Jam Entry

Heart Heist is a randomly-generated stealth game where you control a shadow who can blend in to the environment to stay out of sight.

- SPACE to hide
- R to restart

Requires Java! Music by SeventhBeast.


A bit unfinished, there were a few more mechanics I wanted to put in but mostly ran out of time. The post jam version with lasers, keys (required to unlock the heart), better AI and controller support is in the link below.

Nice Game, being able to steal some of the gold for points would have been a nice addition.

I liked the mood of this game! Would've liked more levels as well.

Really good work with the drones. I think this doesn't fit well to the theme, it's a room but it seems more like the first level of your game. The gameplay is very smooth and funny.

Nice game dude!
Maybe a little short, but well, as a game jam is a good prototype to show!

Good work.

Was nice and clear when you were spotted, but it wasn't clear, at a glance, when an enemy might have seen you :).

Neat and interesting game, which deserves more work to get a good overall game. Well done!

Nicely done. But sadly you just have to rush the drones most of the time. I love the soundtrack!

I like the idea, but getting to hide anywhere rather than using the environment to blend your shadow with felt like a missed opportunity. The objects in the rooms seemed to have no functional purpose because of that. Might be that those were the mechanics you wanted to add, but you didn't mention what they were. A few times I found my heart without much opposition at all too.

The graphics look quite good and overall pretty consistent, aside from one or two perspective oddities. Nice animations on the shadow.

The music is suspenseful and really helps set the atmosphere. The harsh beep sound effect for the instructions at the start wasn't very pleasant, but the other effects were pretty decent.

Pretty good game, although the controls feel unresponsive and cluncky... mosly because you cant move horizontially and vertically at the same time. Other than that the game is solid.

Hey, I liked your game it was actually fun.
You can improve the audio and the graphics at some point but overall not bad!
And please go and try out my game!

Really fun, interesting game. Simple but yet very well made and fantastic to play. Really like the concept, great stuff! :D
