Simple yet rewarding

Nice idea. Good level of difficulty.

Very nicely done, good atmosphere with minimal graphics and sounds. Has good level buildup and design (only level 3 is a step back in difficulty) It rewards patience, .. but it crashed after I finished level 5.

Nice and peaceful. Very polished for a compo entry.

Would be awesome, but the collision detection is such that it makes it very hard to go down the narrow tunnels. It would be nice if there was some snapping to the grid or just something that would make it easier to so I didn't bonk in to walls every time I tried to go down a hallway.

Otherwise very nice.

Nicely done, I like the simple but effective method you used to show the guards vision ranges. Good level design as well, challenging but appropriately short.

Thanks all very much for your kind comments! I'm very aware of the grid snapping problem. Unfortunately, I realised about it when it was too late already.

See you around in Ludum Dare 26!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

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.

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.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.

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.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
