Experiment in the world of basic particle physics as you interact with the yellow up-quarks, the blue down-quarks, and white electrons to see what you can create.

Use WASD to move your particle.

Discover the quantum world while making things as large as Sodium atoms.

(Hint: In real life, particle form better at high speeds)

Great idea. It would be cool if it would be a lot of forms to create.

Took me a while to get controls

I love the idea, but sadly either the execution or the controls are poor. I'm not exactly sure which. I clumsily move around trying to rub particles together and sometimes something happens and sometimes they don't. I have no clue.

The idea is great, but the game that resulted may need to be re-designed from the ground up to be actually fun to play. Controls need to be tight and results from experimentation should be immediate and apparent.

I liked the particle collisions, but didn't really get the game. Needs further development.

The idea is interesting, but it is really confusing, and I have no idea of what is happening. Some particles get together, some don't, some get big and purple, whaaat? I'd love to see some instructions.

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.
