[GAME] Shot in the Dark — A fun puzzle game with a warm glow aesthetic! 🔥
fuzzyastrocat (741)

Adventure through dimly lit passages with only a few glowing torches to help guide you on your way. Encounter shifting walls, tricky puzzles, and mysterious enemies. Enjoy a calming, warm aesthetic with minimalist graphics.

All this and more in my new game, Shot in the Dark!

Shot in the Dark is a puzzle game with one simple rule — you can only move between tiles that have similar colors. So, you can move from a black tile to a dark grey tile, but not from a black tile to a white tile. The complexity arises from the additional challenges added throughout the levels — I won't spoil it all for you, you'll have to play the game to find out!

You can play the game here. All instructions are in-game — but I'll list them here too:

  • WASD or arrow keys to move
  • R to reset level
  • You are the circle, the goal is the square

If you have any suggestions, please give them! This took a long time to make, so I'd really appreciate any feedback!

(Some of the levels may be challenging — but I can assure you, they are all possible!)

SCCCAAAWWWYY!!

But laggy

@Leroy01010 It will probably be laggy if you don't have a graphics card — this uses a lot of shaders to get the nice glow aesthetic, at the cost of being really laggy for systems that don't do well with that kind of stuff.

@Leroy01010 I have no idea, you'd probably be best off googling it. Many computers come with them pre-installed, so I'm not sure how to get/replace one (it might be that you actually do have one but it's just not very powerful).
