This game looks amazing! I absolutely love the art style! The gameplay is also very interesting, even though I lost all 3 rounds playing with my friend, we had a lot of good laughs in this one. I thought my friend was looking at what I was inputting on my keyboard so I covered my hands up, and still lost. My friend said I was walking backward and forwards a lot so that's why he knew it was a human. It was absolutely fun to find and keep track of both yourself and your enemy! Our last game ended up very long though, because we had no idea where each other was, since we both were getting better at "blending in". We spent a good 10 minutes trying to find each other, so, maybe it would be interesting to prevent this kind of stalemate by adding something like a timer, or more and more NPCs walk off the screen, so it gets easier to locate each other over time. Something like that. At the end of that last game, I got impatient and began spamming the knife killing NPCs one by one and it was a sight to behold as I screamed "WHERE THE F*** ARE YOU??!?!" as my friend laughed and stabbed me and won again.

Fabulous work, great job!

Thank you for the feedback and running the jam!

Good ideas. We're also thinking of adding a play mode with a score system where it's best of 5 rounds with each round being in a different level. Killing NPCs could be worth 10pts and the other player 100pts. So hopefully there would more incentive to kill others and move around more.

So polished! You guys even have your own logo! I wish this game supported more players or had some other ways to tell who the other player was like tasks/assassinating ai characters. I think the right shift key to shoot for the second player caused the "sticky keys" pop-up to show which kinda blew my cover.

Developer

Thanks! We're on Mac so never even thought about sticky keys! Great feedback that we'll do an update for after the jam.

Well it's already a perfect couch play game. It is simple fun. And the artwork was pleasing to the eye. Might be the winner of this jam.
