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

One dark room

by darkdaragon77 - Jam Entry

You are in a dark room, alone. No way to escape. No way to survive?
Your only weapons are a sword and a flashlight!
Fight your way waves of endless enemies. How many can you survive?

WSAD to move
E to place a candle
Q to Open the Skill-Menu
Left Click to Attack with your Sword
Right Click to turn your flashlight on and off
Esc to end the game

I wouldn't say this game is finished, but it's playable and the jam is over.

Post Jam Fix-Log
You can now press Z to switch between better performance and better graphics. This game has ridiculous high system requirements, so I recommend to play in performance mode. If you want to play the 100% original jam game never press Z at all.

I had fun being a little creeped out by the eye's following me. Thank you for the submission!

The game is slow and when you hit an enemy there is no "effect". Still quite an interesting idea, good job.

Really enjoyed the exploration aspect to this game, including how each bad guy had different behavior that took some learning to figure out. I was a little confused by what the stats menu was trying to convey. Overall a neat idea. Thank you for submitting.

The idea of playing with the light zones is cool, but I think the rest of the game design is not taking enough advantage of the mechanic. Also, the skills-menu seems a bit out of place.

Interesting idea nonetheless! ^-^

Would have been better if the controls changed with the direction you were facing but that's a minor gripe. I couldn't figure out if I was suppose to find an exit or not and didn't really see any advantage turning the light on and off. I liked the fog of war though.

Good game! Hard to understand what need to do. Game work a little slow. Please add more gameplay features and better graphics solution!

The mechanics are original, but I feel that it can have more. I encourage you to continue developing it after the ludum dare finishes. Until now the basics are great, love it! :)

I wish there was a little more going on. Nice flashlight effect though.

It is a bit slow and there is nothing stoping you from spamming attack. It is a cool game though.
