In the dark

Enter a world with no story, just some nice music and jumping.

Or is there a story? If yes, find out yourself. If no, just enjoy the music.
You decide.

@foxter888 I really don't know if you're being sarcastic or not. If you're being sarcastic, my answer is


If you aren't being sarcastic, then

How is it intense?

Some plateforms are very hard :-/

AAAHHHH! Super hard platforming. I actually enjoyed some of the graphics and I wanted to keep going to see what the messages said, but the platforming was difficult and repetitive.

Very simple game, but it fits the theme... It's just too short. The pixelating effect looks cool.

@Yakka @domrein Well, they were meant to be hard but passable. And about that repetition? Well, now I know what to look out for next time.

I like how the character movement and music feel in sync.

The Effects are really cool.
I also liked the difficulty. Died just twice, so that was acceptable. Some more messages would have been great but I do know that time is short in LD ; )

great game, i really love it. while i played I thought about the game "flower" with the simple objective of flying and relax. the idea was good and the sound too...

The music is a bit too minimalistic for my likings. I'm also having quite some issues with controls: when switching Tabs (in IE10) sometimes I'm no longer able to control the character, plus some gaps seem to require perfect timing (starting at the third or fourth Screen below that arrow thingy). Overall, I like the idea, but it's - as mentioned above - almost a bit too minimalistic.

Found this just a little too generic - I think stronger level design might have helped bring the simplicity to the forefront.

The mood and graphics are wonderful!

@ataxkt yep, this was my first *finished* game, so good level design isn't my strong suite.

Wooowoowoo, very hard platforming!
The character movements aren't easy and the game lag a bit on my computer.
The pixel transition at the beginning is a very cool effect. :)

Pretty good game. Though the repetitive music is pretty annoying. Good entry though :)

I like the character design. Music is not bad at first, but gets annoying quite quickly.

Fun and well made platformer.

Some nice solid platform physics. I enjoyed playing it.

Nice mood. Controls felt pretty good. Layout of the platforms felt a bit random.

Good plateformer. The difficulty curve was a bit strange.
The sweet music set a good 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.
