Run as far as you can, as fast as you can! Don't stop for any reason!

We tried to make an entire game using only 1 button (space) and a very limited colour palette.

Looks nice, but I was having issues with the controls. For me at least, they were just sluggish enough that I couldn't do it.

Really nice fun platformer. Keeps you addicted until you have enough willpower to eventually break away. Really nicely done!

Nice one!, very addictive. I wasn't expecting the inverted version, surprising.

Really pretty stuff, and a nice execution. I gave up at level 3 - record 33 seconds.

The inversion thing was great - I loved how that metaphor continued over to the music. Great fun overall!

I'm glad I wasn't the only one making endless runner. Good job. Very well done.

Great music, but I just don't have reflexes for this kind of game, always crashed into wall after few obstacles

This is very nice. My only gripe is that I don't like that the player can collide with the top of the screen, it makes it much harder. But its really nice overall.

Very good, a simple but fun game, and beautifull mood.

Very clean looking game. My only gripe was how I had to plan my jumps so far from the object just to make sure I'd be able to make it and anything that came after. Good job though!

It looks and plays just awesome!

Great game, on a game like this though the controls have to be PERFECT and while you guys are crazy close it was occasionally sluggish on responsiveness. Otherwise no complaints whatsoever with this game, great job. (Made it back to red BTW)

Nice. Really like the switch from red to blue. Very addictive game. Controls felt solid.

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.

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.

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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
