What can I say? This game was made for the 2nd NG Game Jam competition. We made this little beauty in a total of 3 days and 45 minutes.

It's not perfect, but I'll update it tomorrow with fixed bugs and ads and whatnot. It's late, and I'm tired. I'll probably come up with a better commentary tomorrow as well. You should probably stop reading this.

Anyway, thanks to Team Giant Squid for hauling ass and getting this thing done. A lot of time and effort went in to this. Like you don't even know.

You didn't even tell me how to pick up keys! I was freakin out! Next time tell me how so I don't freeze!

otherwise here's a six because it was pretty good and I understand you were at a time crunch


Looks great but very glitchy and laggy, won't allow me to shoot or anything :/

Glitch killed me.

I have to say the game, as it was meant to be played, would have gotten a ten. But I'll try to play it, and glitches will kill me.
If you can fix the glitches the game is great.
Also, the warmness bar was a little annoying only because I had to stop gameplay completely and sit next to a fire. If it could go up faster that would make the game more fast paced. And that's a good thing.
Art: 10/10 (It was truly great art. Good job on the artists part)
Gameplay: 8/10 (The top-down gameplay was pretty good. It could have gotten better with more variety to the enemies, and the ability to shoot while running. Fuel should drop faster, and you should be able to find fuel tanks to replenish it. Also the heat thing I talked about earlier.)
Sound: 10/10 (The music went with it perfectly, and the sound effects were perfectly on-synch and they sounded fine. Good job.)
Playability: 0/10 (Glitches, glitches, glitches. Everywhere. In fact this is probably more of a -5.)
Overall: 5/10.
It's a 9 or maybe a 10 without the glitches.


For a short time,it was a very good game,I liked the concept,you guys could make a better game after the jam,cuz I got stuck after the door with a lock


a beautifully arted, magnificiently audioed mess. glitchy and buggy to the point of unplayability, but the rest is great.
