what is going...

Lovely gag! I thought it would be kept to the "title-screen", but then it wouldn't stop and it got a bit unsettling. So bonus-points for mood I guess :P

Apr 29, 2013 @ 10:09pm

I probably didn't press space enough.

Minimal concept indeed.

Dude.. What... were you taking?! My LD was powered by caffeine, this must have been some less conventional substance.

Super atmospheric though, I do like it.

wtf man?
I laugh in the first part but then I was like "WTF man?", beautiful songs and a strange pendulum?
Great idea btw XD

Apr 30, 2013 @ 4:22pm

Was a bit weird, a bit interesting, though I wish there was more to do in the pendulum part than just watch or go back down by pressing space.

LeafThief says ...

I stayed with it all the way to the end. I enjoyed both parts.
The pendulum was somehow off and I have the feeling that had you adapted the background colors, that part would have greater effect.
Now that I sat it through to the end (I didn't interact in the second part) I really liked it. Especially the stark contrast.
Good experience.

Loved the concept, made me feel all Amiga demo scene.

Top marks for Mood. My space bar has suffered though.

Beautifully drawn. I was reminded of the opening credits from "Enter the Void."

Man, the game is great but the learning curve... how can you got it more complex than Dwarf Fortress man??

May 6, 2013 @ 6:20pm

Moody and evocative

Unity? Could you put up a Linux build for those of us who can't run the webplayer?

Interesting piece of interactive art. Interesting enough for me to wait and see what happens when the pendulum gets to the top, but I think that part should have been a little more interactive. The audio is really unusual and atmospheric.

I don't know what this is, but it sure is pretty

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.
