The Shadow Overtakes You is a gamejam project made for the Global Game Jam 2020 using Godot Engine in less than 24 hours. It was developed together with a partner with the aim of learning Godot from scratch. It was programmed using GDScript.

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 game can be downloaded for Windows, Linux, MacOs or play in the browser at
