I love the idea, and also the little tutorial signs. They helped a lot in getting to know the mechanics. I think it's worth going further and adding nice graphics and sounds to the game.

The mechanics are good.

Couldn't play game. Doesn't fit onscreen. Resolution is too tall.

The background music is bad to be honest. Controls aren't the best too. But the idea and graphics are pretty nice. Level design is also good (at least for the first 3 stages).

The idea is really good, and both the graphics and sounds are okay. I believe that the difficulty level is a bit too high.

This is a decent puzzler with a lot of potential. The shape was pretty slippery, but once you get the hang of it, it isn't too difficult. My favorite part was how you included the instructions in the beginning; many jam games tend to lack those!

Game felt very complete, was fun, and interesting. Great job on that music, too! <3

Played this one all the way through on stream so I think you know my general impression, but really cool game. One of the most thought out i've seen so far.

The game mechanics are okay, the only thing that i dislike is the level design, some levels are confusing with multiple exits, some levels are too easy and some other are really hard and challenging, i think that with more focus on level design this could be a much better game, good job.

The resolution was large enough that I couldn't see some of the screen which prevented me from playing. :(

The level design was at times mysterious but I feel that gave them some nice extra atmosphere. Also a surprising amount of content to be done in such a short time! I encountered some bugs but managed to beat it nonetheless.

Fun game. Movement made me mad, but the amazing music made up for it.

Nice game! (I'm from the stream)

Quite a challenging game I have to say, it's nice that you focused a lot on the gameplay, levels offer fair amount of challenge and are quite different from each other. Good job on that!

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.
