Nice game. I like the art style and enjoyed the atmosphere of the game. Well done :)

Okay so in my first game, I didn't get hit a single time. So I've tried to get hit on purpose the second time and the first hit changed the inputs so I died in 3 seconds after that :D

Yeah there’s randomness involved with the monster spawns...Originally I had some mechanics where your weapons would jam over time but didn’t have time to get them implemented and tested :)

Pretty cool game! The doom vibes on this one is neat, and the idea of changing the keyboard inputs was excelent, felt completely out of control for a few seconds. Congratulations on the game!

I really like the game feel and core game mechanic! Very nice interpretation of the theme and is executed excellently! My only suggestion is to maybe make all of the buttons on the keyboard instead of the keyboard and mouse as I got a bit overwhelmed moving my hand between them :'D. Overall an interesting and cool concept implemented very nicely

This game is really impressive and my favourite game that I've played in this Jam so far. The panic that builds up while you attempt to locate the switching movement keys as the monsters chase makes this game really fun.

Could you try my game as well?

Developer

Thanks much! Will take a look at your game whenever I have a minute :)

Pretty cool game, the shooting felt fun and the tight corridors had me nervous the whole time! I felt like the enemy was always sneaking up on me though.

If you have time, please check out the game I worked on for the Jam, called "Foobar". Thanks!

This is fun to play and I like those fish things that sneak up on me lol. I think the UI could be a bit better since it was often hard to tell what broke and what keys I need to use now, but overall it's really good! Give my game a try too! :)

Thanks! Will check out your game too!

I wish there was a sound effect for the eldritch fish people, they creep up somewhat unannounced, but overall I loved the presentation and concept!

The fish shocked me so hard I got a heart-attack.

I ran out of time to put attack prep sounds on the fish demons :/
