Now that I see your comments, maybe I do not analyze the concept well. I had several hours lost due to different factors and reached a point I decided to leave the concept as such. It was also a fun experience, my intention was never to win or do something unique, I just enjoy developing, thanks to everyone.

I don't understand this game. You have to collect all loot (so you have to be a thief), but you also have to activate all security systems (so you have not to be a thief)?

It's not a stealth game, it's a collect-a-thon.

Just looked at the ratings and realiced that you had to activate the cameras and stuff and not evade them. the game is poorly explained but its mildly fun

While it sounds good on paper, the actual gameplay itself feels lackluster. There isn't enough motivation for the player to activate all of those security systems.

I think this is a reason why Mark said "Don't take it too literally" This isn't a stealth game in any way. The idea isn't to declare a genre and not make a game like that, it's supposed to be a removal of a key mechanic, not the whole concept. The game works fine and I'm sure you worked hard, but it just doesn't fit into the jam.

The concept is pretty funny, and I appreciate that the game ends right about when the joke is getting old. I love that you can't actually jump over lasers. The timer starts right when the game does despite there being text on the screen. I don't know if this was an oversite or the thief is still reading up on thieving after breaking in. Either way, I enjoyed playing it.

Can't run .rar files...

Get 7zip. You're going to need it for a few of these games. (Also .rar files are storage files like .zip not .exe)
