Ludum Dare 37 — December 9th-11th, 2016 — Theme: One Room

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

You have awoken in the night and need to use the restroom, though perhaps there is more to it than that. The less known the better

Arrow keys and spacebar to control.

Small glitch: sometimes you will be required to press the spacebar several times to interact with an object

Lovely little game. I wasn't sure what was happening at the end. Loved the little effects in the mirror.

Great narrative game! I am assuming the ending was the crime scene investigators speaking, but it wasn't clear.

Wow! Jolly spooky. Very fun! I was a bit confused by the ending too.

Nice art style, it reminded me of Cart Life (if you haven't played that, you really should!) The mirror effect is really cool(the actual mirror, not the two rooms(which is also really cool :) )).
The lighting effects on the sprites were subtle, and worked really well for that reason.

Nice little dark game, well done!

Wow! My favorite LD game so far!
Great atmosphere, great mystery. It really glued me to my screen, especially when trying to find something in the flickering scene.

excellent sounds. The graphics was pretty nice too. Mirror looks nice. The 2d feel is well thought out, and the elements are working fine.

Wow, great little game. There was a bug in the last "water" room I could just exit through the door, maybe you missed a collider over there? Great job!

Dec 12, 2016 @ 9:52pm

Waw, good job m8. I like the storyline, the graphics and everything is awesome

Great story telling. I started to feel anxious, because you never know what to expect. Graphics works very well and this is reinforced by the sound design, which plays an important role in the oppressive atmosphere.

I fits well the theme and was fun to play (I had the bad end, but a glimpse at the code source told me there is a way out). I like the fact that it has a conclusion.

Well done! Thanks for making this game.

Wow! Greatest one so far! I'm not really into these types of games, but...this may have awoken something in me.

- The game looks pretty, effects are awesome
- Mood 5/5
- Nice sound and music

- The game stuck on the last screen (most likely it's by design, but still, something like ending credits would be fine)

This is rad! Great animation, great use of the theme, and a really cool concept!

Wow, did not expect the scary vibes from this one. I guess the game ends when you wake up in the bathroom lying down unable to move? Also, when the room starts flooding you can somehow walk out past the door? Very neat game.

Quite cool, had some pretty great effects with the mirror and lighting.

Very cool ! Too bad it ends so quickly !

Not sure if waking up was just the ending, or I had to input something?

AlmightyTuna says ...

Just to clarify, when you wake up on the floor, that is the end of the game. I had more planned but time got away on me.

Solid game, really liked the subtle mirror effects and mood.

Nice game ! Really loved the art and the dark vibe ! Not sure if I actually finished the game, or just had a game over, but it was really cool !

What the HECK


That was creepy. I enjoyed every moment of it. Well, every moment except for the part with the lock. The thing you have to observe happens a little too fast. But aside from this, the gameplay was short but effective. It was kind of hard to recognise where certain items were. I didn't even realise I had picked up the screwdriver; I just started pressing space rapidly as I went.

Overall, the mood was great. The audio was super unsettling, as was the narrative as it unfolded. I really like this entry.

This was really good, gave me the feels of P.T. honestly. Never thought a 2d pixel art game will give me this much thrill.

You set a very nice mood with this one. The slightly parallaxing mirror was a cool touch

It really bothered me that the main character never washed his hands after his leak.

Other than that, the mood, graphics and story were all incredibly engrossing, which made this a fun little experience.

Great work!

You have managed to create a great spooky atmosphere, using relatively simple methods, to a point where it was tense going near the mirror. Very impressive!

The "mirror blinking" effect went by a bit too quickly. The audio was excellent in amplifying the mood.

Great game!

Creepy game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
