Note: This game was modified after the deadline to fix a game-breaking bug, where you would always get stuck on the fourth screen if you had a very narrow monitor resolution (like, 1280x1024). If you want to play the originally submitted version, see here: http://vote.grumpybumpers.com/j/ld/23/4/ ...but, except for the bugfix that version is exactly the same.

Okay, where's the sneaky bastard who put LSD in my coffee! :P

Oh, I love this. I had an idea what to expect from the pictures you posted on twitter, but the music's fantastic too. It fits perfectly.

Woww way cool. I definitely could have spent more time playing this. I'd love to learn how to program something like this--thanks for posting the software.

Really strange and wonderful. I liked it quite a bit.

Nice visual experiment but, even if it's fun to see how you can smudge an old sight tv , it's a bit too far from the purpose.

But i like the mood.

And you should alert epileptic people to never play your game if they don't want to go to the hospital ^^

I'm trying to download the Windows version, but it appears your site is down. You could upload the files to a public dropbox folder. I'm going to check back in a couple days to see if it's up again!

I came back and it seems to be working again.
Note to others, move with the arrow keys!
I tried playing it a few times but was trying to play with the mouse, then I tried pressing every key, but it seems you use the arrows. Some hint somewhere would be useful.
Very interesting experimental entry, I played it a few times to take in the experience.
I'm not really sure how this fits with the theme though. Thanks for sharing!

Interesting... although I like games which have a more definitive goal and challenges, etc.

Still quite nice graphically.

If this was used to make an actual game, that would be awesome. In it's current stage, i guess it is a game, but it doesn't really have gameplay, just LSD.

Craaazy. I'm going to come back to this if I'm ever tripping :).

I found the pops in the audio very annoying, and probably would find them more-so if tripping :/. Not that YOU said this was meant for tripping :).

Anyways, it's very cool but as others have stated, not really a "game" as far as I can tell.
