You are trapped in a pitch dark room swarming with evil creatures wanting to eat your soul. Your only way of surviving is to dodge the creatures and use your trusty flamethrower as both a mean of illuminating your surroundings and banishing the terrifying monsters back to their realm. Our interpretation of the theme is that of self-destruction: The more you use your flamethrower, the smaller your light radius becomes, and thus the game becomes harder. However, you need to kill the ghosts or you will be overwhelmed. Gameplay inspired partially by The Binding of Isaac and Super Crate Box.
Extract the binaries and run GGJ12.exe. Requires the Allegro (http://allegro.cc) monolith DLL, msvcp100.dll and msvcr100.dll, all supplied with the binaries. (First upload was missing some DLLs, so it was reuploaded. Sorry!)
Linux and Mac OS were not tested, but it should work on those platforms.
