How does your game fit the theme?
In the game "Oppressed" you control a square with the four arrow keys only to realize that you aren't in total control as you can only use three of the keys, while the fourth is put into the hands of the game.

Did your team create the art for this game during the 48 hour time slot?

Great concept, it was really fun!
I think a problem is that there is no downside to players keeping the key pressed as if they were playing a normal platformer. Maybe using the same set of 3 keys and changing their outputs would fix that? Either way, I really enjoyed it.


Good game! :) Keep creating games!

Thanks for the ratings and the feedback, it was not intentional to make the game this difficult, but it ended up like this as a result of too little play testing.


Minimalist, simplistic but unnecessarily difficult. Nice job it certainty made me think.


Very interesting take on the theme, made me really have to think at times, also loved the fact in most games you want/need the powerups, whereas in this one they can be detrimental!

Great work


That was fast yet pleasant. Really good concept.


Wow, this is nice. I really like the idea of forcing the player to "hold down" certain keys. I also like the places where you had to avoid stepping into the fields in order to progress. At the beginning I was like "Oh ok, I probably need to step into all of them", but you shouldnt. I can see this being developed into a full puzzle game. GG
