Description

CONTROLS:

  • WASD - Move
  • Space - Eat food
  • 7 - Restart the game

Move to the painting of the same color to be "invisible" :O

Originally the plan was:

  • Stealth game
  • You change color by eating different foods
  • You hide from guards and sentinels by going to a painting with the same color

The weekend was busier than expected, and I wasn't able to give this jam as much time as I would have wanted ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ So I hope you enjoy this small tech demo ^^

The idea for the jam came from "The Ghost's Dinner," a children's book by Jacques Duquennoy that I loved to read growing up.

Fun Fact: I didn't loop the background music. Why? Because this game should not take you more than 1 minute

    It's a shame this is not complete and playable, but it was an interesting tech demo. The opacity change was nice and subtle when hiding, and I can imagine this working really nicely as a proper stealth game. You could even add levels and progression of sorts :) Adorable art style and nice music. Good job!

    It is sad that you weren't able to make a full game out of this, because the core concepts made me curious. Also, it is super cute! Maybe next time!

    I loved the ghost and everything about where this could head as a game. Such a great idea and the implementation was nice!

    I liked the color effect a lot, nice trick! Too bad these 48 hours go quick!
