While experimenting with connections to inter-dimensional worlds, the great DR. KARLOVISKY ends up tripping over his experiments and creates an outerwordly connection with his shoelace. Now, demons from another universe are being tied to him... by a shoelace! Help him escape the dark corners of the evil science company Dark Mesa.


In this game, you are tied to the enemies in the level... So don't walk too fast or else you might bounce back and be bitten by them, but also don't walk so slowly... because they might come too near and KILL YOU! Use the demonies in smart ways to activate switches, open doors and travel through obstacles.

Mouse + Keyboard = Required

This was a game made in 48 hours for the GMTK 2021 Game Jam. I had never participated on a game jam before making this game, and i hope you like the result!
