The Shadow Overtakes You is a gamejam project done for the Global GameJam. It is a 2D top-down videogame where the player has to exit the mine as fast as possible to advance to next levels. While playing to escape, the light of his torch will decay over the time. The player has to be outside the mine by the time the torch is off.

It has a total random map generation with 2⁶⁴ permutations to bring the player the never ending experience. We focused on the light as the main mechanic to give the player the sensation of constant fear.

The source code is avaliable in the github repository and it can be downloaded for Windows, Mac and Linux or played directly on the browser from
