Origami Ride

by MartinFernandez - Compo Entry

In this game you are a paper and you have to do origami shapes to move across the scene.

Objetive: try to get the most longest distance.
Controls: Space to Shapeshift.

Info: The longer you are in the water, the more you get wet, which makes your paper heavier.
If poop hits you, your paper will be heavier.

Neat game. Would be handy if there was a shadow or something to help you tell when you're about to touch the water. My score: a little over 250m

Haha.. I like the idea switching between plane und boat. Sometime its hard to get the right moment transforming, but in overall a nice game. :)

For some reason this didn't work first time for me in the embedded view, but once I got the game going it was pretty fun. There didn't seem to be a way of avoiding the bird poop that I could see, but I still got pretty far.

A cute and very unique game, I liked your take on the theme and it was a lot of fun trying to break my own record!

Well done :)

This could be good, but it's just missing a few touches, and a little polish.

The viewport of the version on GameJolt has its UI cut off and I can't start it.

Nice little game idea, the lift from the air things seemed a bit random, maybe I just need to time the transform properly.

I like it. 230m! However it felt a bit sad that no matter how hard I try I can't keep going because of too few sewer smoke helpers :)

Great idea.
I miss in-air controls for the flight shape

Nice game!
But it's sad that the plane can't fly any decent distance.

I totally didn't clue in to the fact that the sewer pushes you up as a plane. It was really boring till I got that. It's kinda fun but really I didn't feel like I had much control over events. I think it needs more shapes and REALLY needs air control.

Neat little game. The game on Gamejolt seems to be cut off slightly on my chrome browser for some reason. Score is halfway cut off, so it's difficult to see my distance :(

I thought it was a fun concept with not enough to do, plus sometimes it felt like you could not get out of the way of the bird poo. Still got a score of 280 :)

Nice concept, but needs a little more polish.

Cool entry! It's a good start but I see some possibilities on it. Good job!

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.
