by aspic - Jam Entry

Very unfinished and boring game, but almost a game. This was our first entry to Ludum Dare, so we figured we had to submit even though it's lacking in every aspect.


Press down left mouse button to add colour, subtract by using right.

Change colours with 1, 2 and 3. Get to the next level by blending all pixels into the background! Almost fun. It is an advantage to not be colour blind. Not having aestetic taste is also a plus.

This game could definitely be a winner if spruced up a bit. Just speed up the blending process and maybe make it more arcade-y (add a time limit, squares that aren't supposed to be blended, powerups, etc.) Lots of creative ways for ya' to polish this title if you so desire.

Hope you enjoyed your first LD and that you'll be back next time around!

Thanks for the kind words! Yes, we were thinking about adding time limit and some more mechanics, but we were not able to fully prioritize LD this weekend. Looking forward to next time though! :D

Totally agree with Tyro, hope the first LD was a good one! Nice little game you've started, hope you add more to it! :)

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.
