Being awesome for seeing the potato

Possible issues:

This game is really hard, not sure if I'm just terrible at it, I loved how you set the lightning and the music, they really helped set the mood and how you worried about the detail with the trailing effect

I can't go through the second level...

Difficult and a bit tedious in the long run. Has potential though.

Really cool idea, it's quite difficult to grasp but very satisfying. Awesome work for 48 hours!

Great concept and theme. Very nausea inducing though, seeing the screen zoom in and out, especially with that twitchy UI. I stopped at level 3 with slight dizziness.

Took me a little while to get a handle on the controls, but after that it was pretty cool.

Cheers for the comments peeps. Unfortunately I ran out of time so couldn't lower the difficulty. This is the beauty of this comp, lots of good feedback.

Once I worked out the odd controls it was quite good. It was probably too difficult though.

Wow this game is awesome! It's mesmerizing and has that eerie vibe to it. I feel like I'm some sort of reaper trying to heard these restless souls into the well of rebirth...or something like that!

I was super confused for a good number of minutes figuring out what I'm controlling and how things are moving...after that the game became more enjoyable. The levels can become ultra difficult if you mess up the trajectory of each white ball, sometimes it's better to just restart.

Great use of audio!

Neat idea, though it was very difficult to tell how my control was altering the movements of the objects on screen. Great graphics with the lighting and all, and the audio is very well designed to fit the mood!

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.
