Does OCD bother you sometimes?

Have you noticed how the acronym for OCD is not in alphabetical order?
You're welcome.

If you want to spend some time turning chaos into order come and play.
There are some shapes. You can move them, scale them, and rotate them. Simple.

There may be a right way; but what's always better is YOUR right way.

If the shapes aren't perfectly aligned, uniformly rotated and scaled, they will let you know. The "optimum" state can change depending on how you have set the majority of them.

**although there is an audio toggle I didn't have time to finalise the audio so please enjoy while listening to soothing ambient room sounds of your choosing.

CDO. The first part of what will be something much bigger. :)

The first upload web version seems to be having problems and making all the shapes black. Will try to fix it! The windows build works fine in this respect. Enjoy. A

I couldn't figure out what I was supposed to do but the user interface looks good and interacting with the shapes is implemented well.

Pretty fun to play around with. If you'd add challenges like X amount of clicks, I could see this work :)

I literally had no idea what I was doing, I'm afraid. Style was clean and the controls were smooth and intuitive.

I think I understand the games purpose, but I'm not very much an OCD person, so I didn't have much problem leaving the shapes as they were. The interface looks nice and simple, and the shapes behave nicely. The only thing that misses is actual gameplay; you got the rest right.

Neat little puzzler, liked having to find out what to do without instructions. Could use some light background music, but overall fun to play

Not really sure what to do. I moved stuff around but it didn't seem to matter. Everything seemed well done and polished!

Very interesting. I know so many people who would play this for long periods of time.

Also not sure what I was supposed to do. Looks nice.

It's good the way the squares turn green when you have them in the right position/size etc. although it did take a bit of figuring out what to do.

Also loved your title! Actuall like the experimental side and not knowing what to do.

Couldn't really figure out what to do

i like the idea, but i guess the OCD in me wanted an actual goal, instead of me just being cool with selecting the checkbox and insta-winning :)

Im not sure about what to do. I am sorry, but maybe the game needs a tutorial phase. Anyway, i liked the interface and the graphics.

It would have been nice if the shapes would snap to the grid. But this was an interesting idea that I think can be improved upon.

This was pretty fun! XD I'm a pretty OCD person, so I spent quite a long time aligning, rotating and scaling the shapes! :P

This totally feels like a mobile game!

Great work on it!

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.
