Cubic Evolution

by drakfyre - Jam Entry

Evolve the cube from something drab to something FABULOUS! ;)

I am not going to put instructions here, but rather, let people figure it out. There is a win condition and I am interested if anyone is bored enough to see it!

Light on the theme, and a bit abstract. But it's a game, I made it in 48 hours, and I like it. Web version is available now; additional builds/media will be available sometime tomorrow.

I guess I missed the window for the regular competition? I swear that in the past there was a grace period for making the submission itself; but the option isn't there. Oh well I guess.

Hope some people enjoy the game!

EDIT: Going to put instructions here after all.

The objective of the game is to evolve the cube. After a certain amount of time, cubes on the larger cube will start flashing. Clicking on the flashing cubes breaks them up and sends them to the orbiting nodes. At any time, you can click on an orbiting node to transfer the cube energy inside of it to the main cube.

Clicking the flashing cubes fast enough, and without clicking non-flashing cubes, will start a combo (Shown in the upper left). Higher combos increases the rate at which cubes start to flash. It's 5 cubes per multiplier, and you have 5 seconds between cubes before the multiplier resets. Hitting a non-flashing cube resets your combo.

I had intended to put a time element in the game so that there's some point/competition but it's not in there, maybe use a stopwatch? ;) It's a silly game anyway, but it was fun to make and maybe with some love it could become something greater.

I can't seem to edit this entry, I want to add a Time Lapse link and a few other builds. Time lapse is here in the mean time: http://youtu.be/pXGSwYUbuRY (Still uploading at the moment, but should be done in about 20 mins)

That's really cool. Are you going to release the source? I'd love to take a look at it.

Added links to source, a timelapse, and some coverage from my show Cooking With Unity I did during the competition.

Awesome game, with a unique game play. I like it a lot, and the Win screen is pretty psychedelic.

I tried but I can't seem to figure out what I am supposed to do. I managed to go to a cube with rainbow tiles just by clicking around on previous cubes. Am I missing something?

Annoyed my girlfriend with all the clicking :D
I feel a bit stupid after playing and still not understand. All those years at university didn't help at all :)
