Try to find the hidden outlaw in The Only Outlaw, a game made in 48 hours for the 2019 GMTK Game Jam!

How to play:

In The Only Outlaw, you have to find a criminal hiding amongst a crowd of people and use your mouse to shoot him.

You start with 5 seconds on the first round, but gain 5 additional seconds for each criminal you kill. If you miss or shoot the wrong person, however, you lose 5 seconds! The game ends when the timer runs out.

As you advance, the difficulty increases. Crowds become larger, people start running around, and the lights even go out. Try to beat your high score!

Wow! This is really fun! :D

cool game approved

Why when i kill somebody wanted i lose?

the game does not run?


Got 157 kills, eyes died so stopped playing smh, tho I don't see why people are saying that the game is hard


This game was literally just "how colorblind are you from a scale form 1 to 10"  But I still really enjoyed it! Great game!

Got a highscore of 35.

This is really har because im colorblind :/
But still good work

Good One

While using the touchscreen on a Chromebook, anywhere I touch counts as a miss, even while touching the right characters. Good job though!

I got 16


The video says that the game would be hard to play if the player is colorblind, but I'm sure that the colors can be distinguished with every type of colorblindness

Nope, not at all, green and yellow look the same in this.

Edit: I'm colourblind


For me the yellow and green look the same too

I can't tell the difference between the yellow and green :(





I agree






brings me back to the days where i would get scared by pou creepypastas


love the game but sometimes the target hides behind other characters making it hard to see


this game is really nice! my hand-eye coordination isn't very good so this game's actually kinda helping me lol-- got a highscore of 62 so far ^-^

Very enjoyable game!

There Are Some Very RARE Moments Of Rapid Loss.

Laugh: 💯


Man this is a difficult game! Though it was enjoyable and the behind the scenes video was great. It's also nice that the game is quite different from Singled Out, a similar type of game. Something that could be better is that the characters overlap with eachother, making it hard to spot the target.

Very cool game, really enjoyed it. Also like the behind the scenes video. You planning on working more on this game?


A more violent Wheres Wally, exactly what I was looking for.


when the lights go out i think you should be able to see a bit more, and for some reason the cross hair feels more slippery then normal. otherwise i don't think it fits with theme very well.


34 is the best I could get. Very fun game, can't really pick much fault with it.

I guess if I had to then the music is probably a bit out of place and very repetitive, though with a 48h jam game it's hardly fair criticism.

Only other thing would be more variation at later levels since after so many kills when you get the small circle view pretty early on that seems to be the limit in terms of difficulty increase.

Overall very fun and that is what really matters with a game after all.

41 Kills! Very fun game. I like the aesthetic. Great job!

Thanks for the feedback and nice high score!


Great game - Was much more difficult for me as im red / green colourblind haha

Thanks! Colorblind accessibility is something I definitely overlooked while working on this game, but after the jam I'll hopefully be able to go back and add more visual distinction between characters (besides just shirt color) so the game can be easily played by people with colorblindness.


I had the same problem, i couldn't get more than 5 when the green was the target :P

I have the same problem x). the game seems cool and all but I can't score more than 2 xD
