Chaos is a very simple small game where the sole purpose is to get as good score as possible and brag about it.

Should be easier to play on pads and large phones.

**No sound on iPads it seems :\

Simple yet effective gameplay. I can see this as a successfull casual game for kids on iOS or somesuch.

Well that got frantic quickly. Simple concept, but surprisingly addictive.

Thanks to your game I'm now a nervous wreck. I'll be seeing those shapes in my sleep.

A+ would panic again.

That was fun!

Nice game for kids. Relaxing gameplay. Sometimes shapes get locked behind other shapes and you can't click them.

very nice game, but sometimes, when I clicked the shape, it didn't destroy

Pretty hectic! I liked how relaxed the music was in comparison to the action on-screen. The click detection was sometimes a bit finicky if two shapes were overlapping. My score:

Awesome game. So simply but really addictive! You should really consider making this into a mobile game.

It works you up into a crazy shape clicking monster!

Nice music :)

Surprisingly compelling, but could use a lot more polish. Spreading the shapes around evenly is an interesting computer science problem, you should look into it :)

Not sure I get the shapeshift aspect about the game. Seems like your just clicking a bunch of random shapes. No shapeshifting going on here.

Very enjoyable, simple gameplay. I played on desktop, but this would be a very enjoyable mobile app. Got quite hectic when I was near death. Made it to 68 shapes! Well done.

Fun game! Gets surprisingly frantic, very quickly.

Awesome game for kids, good audio too. Doesn't seem to fit the shapeshifting theme though

Fun addicting game! Definitely would be nice on a touch screen as I'm using a huge monitor and requires me to travel a long distance to get to the shape I need to click lol. Great work, though!

I think this would be an awesome ipad game for parents to give their kids! I totally would have when my kids were younger. Great job!

Nice, good concept, simple but challenging, getting more difficult with time because of the added shapes.
Well done!

I was not expecting Chaos to be so... Chaotic. My eyes frantically darting around a big ol' monitor, with the calm kids TV style music slowly digging away at my sanity like nails on a chalkboard... Oh my.

I can see this as a nice phone game friendly UI and fun music, nice work.

Cool idea for a learning game for kids! I like it! Nice job

I was pretty good at this game when I was 2, but not so much anymore it seems. I like how it naturally gets more challenging as the screen fills.

The overlapping is a bit jarring when it gets going fast. Playing this makes me feel a bit uneasy. It might be quite addictive if I kept going.

I'm no way good at this, but I had fund!

Simple, but entertaining. Not sure how well it fit the theme

Simple concept and enjoyable to play. Definite time killer.

Apr 24, 2016 @ 10:48am

Simple concept, but well executed. Love the contrast between the soothing music and frantic gameplay. I bet this game is WAY easier on a touch screen though.

What you could consider is to make the shape you're looking for flash up larger in the middle of the screen, so you don't need to take your eyes off the board every second or so.

Fun to play and very difficult. I think this game might be awesome with a touch screen.

great work!

Funny Game , you could make some power ups and more animation to make it even more fun.

Pretty interesting game but terrible to play on a laptop with a trackpoint so I only got 26 points. I didn't even take a screenshot.

That was a blast. Put this on Android with polish. My eyes wont bug out as much. Very nice easy fun mechanic.

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
