How does your submission match the theme?
Echolocation is your only action. It alerts "others" to your location, but it's your only way through.

Wow, simple but genius! The screech mechanic and the dashing enemies make for a heart pumping experience!

Not sure if it really fits the theme but I'd say its a really innovative entry!

Thanks for saying so! Schu and I were talking about interpretations of the objective. I think a lot of people, myself included, interpreted it as "your core mechanic can have multiple outcomes," when it might actually be, "your core mechanic can DO multiple things." The difference is that the latter allows you to make informed decisions about how you choose incorporate potential penalties into your play style, while the former... doesn't really involve choice at all, because you have to do to what you have to do no matter way. I envisioned screeching originally to have multiple effects on the environment (manipulating enemies to break obstacles, for example), but it ended up seeming too busy, so I stripped it to its essentials, which, admittedly, may have missed the point of the challenge.

This game is brilliant, a really elegant mechanic and well scoped.

The aesthetic's a bit tame but it's everything it needed to be and is super readable.

I really hope this gets featured for how clever it is, I love well paced and well rounded games :)

Wow, I really like yourtake on this on this theme! It might be, as you said, similar to mine as in utilising darkness but I really like the way you've done it and utilised it for the tension. With some added visual elements and extra puzzles, I could see this as a fully fledged indie game!

That's cool, man!! 🤝  Thanks for saying so.
