An old-school point-and-click sci-fi mystery adventure game set in a futuristic building.


mAIn COMPetition is a first official game made by Lunar Shuriken

- an independent game development studio from Poland.


The game was designed and created by Gregg Bonikowski, featuring music by Liz Katrin.


This is a Flash file, playable on any browser supporting Flash content. A downloaded game file could also be played as stand-alone on systems with Flash Player installed.

The game is one-button only, meaning you control it using only one button of your mouse. No keyboard required.

This is a full remake of the original game called COMPetition, made under 30 hours during a game jam.

Hi there!

December was a very busy month for me, lots of work, Christmas, then some health problems. In result, I didn’t manage to post a December summary of work on our first game mAIn COMPetition.


We are one month late in summaries but the actual progress on the game is going very nicely.

This is a summary of what has been achieved during December and January:

Those are very important and mysterious doors in the game. But not the only one!


The fully playable prototype of the game has become even more completed after adding last but not the least important features. I’ve been running the tests almost continually and squashing bugs.

As of now, I’m confident enough to say the bugs are all squashed and if any are left (let’s be realistic, that’s ALWAYS the case!), those are the very minor and rare issues.

I’m particularly happy to be able to fix one game-crashing bug that used to haunt me for days. I’ve finally found the solution and got rid of this nuisance.

As I mentioned those 2 months ago, we’ve acquired some outside help with the game. Our small team has been joined by 2 new testers and a sound designer!

What remains to be done:


- More testing. As usual.

- Complete the Start Screen (add the game name, main credits, version).

- Add some animations.

- Make final sound effects.

- Add final graphics.

- Fix Click Zones.

- Align texts.

- Final optimization.

- Announce the release date (and this should happen very soon!).

And this is one of the first screens in the game - The Tutorial!


We’re still looking for people willing to help with the game. Testers, text proofreaders and graphics artist. If you think you can help in making the mAIn COMPetiton game, please contact us.

Thank you very much for reading and spread the word about the game!

Thanks! Actually learning Stencyl is very easy. Just 2-3 hours of reading the tutorials and you're good to go with your first simple game.

Misterious and cyberpunkish, simple but not easy. Really cool! It's been a pleasure to create soundtrack for COMPetition.
