play the game here

:) this is my second game, and my second Ludum Dare game. is this a coincidence? OF COURSE NOT! LUDUM DARE IS AWESOME!

:) i was able to add some game design thinking into the game and some people resolved the game that way! i feel so happy about this!

😕 i did try to guide the player through some minimal discovery process. all the cubes are white and black, except for two of them, one with an hint at the end of the level about the solution on the other cube at the beginning.

:) i like how if you use headphones and pay attention, the music will guide you in a hot cold kind of way.

:) sometimes you only see a little white square in a place full of black. minimalism is weird, consistence is important, resistance is futile.

:( the gameplay is good enough, it have some slidy thing that i hate but is my best approach to a platform. the jump is ok.

:( the lightning mechanic is sexy but needs some manual fixes, the random waiting time was the easy solution.

😕 some people didn’t finish the game because of frustration, i wonder is this is good or bad.
