A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Summary Header

Lights out is a super simple game where you keep the lights out. The name of the game sums up what you do. However its not that simple. There are 7/15/26 malfuntioning lights in the room which constantly turn themselves back on. Your job is to keep them off for as long as you can. If all the lights are on, you lose. 

Controls Header

You may choose to either use the keyboard or mouse for this game. This can be toggled on the main menu before hitting play.

Mouse (Easy)  - Click on the light to toggle that light

Keyboard (Hard) - Press the matching key to toggle that light

Just an FYI mostly... as my leaderboards are online only

The game uses my own domain (carter.games) to host a database holding all of the game scores. There is a chance this breaks in the future as the database may not stay alive forever. The game does require an internet connection to function as your socres are not saved if the game can't reach the server. If playing offline there is a chance the game will need rebooting every now and then.

behind the scenes header

I recorded my screen for the duration of the jam and will have a complitation video of the games development as well as a shorter video with me going over my thoughts and explaining what I'm doing on screen. 

I'll post links here when they are up xD

Currently aiming to have the video ready by Sunday 19th (I've got a lot going on, so bear with me xD)
