Silhouette was originally our entry for the 2013 Global Game Jam.
In Silhouette, one player plays a hapless victim escaping from the other, a maniacal killer. In turn-based action, the victim must find a key to escape a twisting, nightmarish mansion, while the killer must hunt and murder the poor victim. However, as the two get closer to one another their turns get shorter and the tension builds to a frenzy. Being a local multiplayer game, both players play on the same computer and share the same screen, which creates unusual and often hilarious interactions outside the game.
