Interesting game. I like how the light is both your health and weapon. But I feel the weapon was a bit underpowered. If I stood near a light source I kept shining it on the enemies but often it wasn't doing any damage at all and the enemies just kept spawning making it impossible for me to find the keys.

That made me think of like a horror version of toy story :P 

Still, that was a fun game, enjoyed playing that. 

Artwork was really good nice work on that.

Thank you! We definitely wanted a horror feel to the game.

I played through a few times, could only find one of the solar panels? It's a pretty unique game, haven't seen one like this so far, although I'm not sure the reasons that is unique (the beam of light as damage) is particularly tied to the "only one" theme.

Did you ever play Nintendoland? There was a minigame where you had to hunt a ghost using a beam of light, and had to balance not using up your battery with not getting caught by the ghost. They did a really good job of making it feel like the beam of light was hurting the ghost. I think a bit more visual feedback that the beam of light is hurting the monsters would be really satisfying!

Great job on such a unique game!

Thanks for the feedback! I have never played Nintendoland, but will have to check it out. As for matching the theme, we wanted to bake several mechanics into the light beam meaning you have "only one" tool to navigate the world.

Good art.

Thanks! Our artists enjoyed creating the environment and silly characters.
