WINNER AT GLOBAL GAME JAM PARIS 2014! Armed with your truth-seeing goggles, you must overcome ennemies and unforgiving challenges in a nice and cute looking world, but where nothing is quite like it seems... Kaw-Eye (pronounce "kawai" as the Japanese word) is a hardcore "die-and-retry" platformer game. It will put your nerves to severe pressure. You will hate us for having made it. And in the end, you will see the world as it really is.
Jam year: 
MS Windows, Mac OS X, Web browser with special plugins or packaged apps
Tools and Technologies: 
Unity (any product)
Technology Notes: 
Made with the new 2D tools featured in Unity 4.3. The "dark world bubble" effect is nothing but a shader that displays a hidden layer ("cute world") on top of the actual game layer ("dark world"). The whole project and code was managed and shared in a local SVN server that was setup right at the beginning of the jam. Photoshop/Illustrator/Flash and Paint Tool Sai for graphics. Guitar Pro 5 and Reason for music. No kittens or rabbits were harmed during the process.
Installation Instructions: 

Just download, unzip and double-click "Gold_02.exe" to start. Leave the graphics settings as default (1280x720 resolution).
