Puzzle game, where you have to get data cubes of different colours in the correct order, drag and drop the blocks at the top to build your circuit. Right click to remove a block, drag the red blue and yellow spawn boxes on the grid before you push play at the bottom of the screen

Hey nice... reminds me of critical circuit timings. A few niggles... 1) It's very hard (or I'm dumb and missing something), 2) no tutorial levels = plenty of time spent learning, not necessarily a bad thing, but a bit off-putting, 3) the "flip-flop" double headed arrow blocks do not reset their orientation on Reset, which means circuits stop working and have to be rebuilt after every try. Fun though and I will solve this dang level!

I'll upload a tutorial level and fix some of the bugs when I get a chance tomorrow

It's very hard because color of cube change randomly, or meyby not? But I don't figure out how.

Wow. Definitely a nice concept. Not what I'd expect from minimalism, tbh. And also a little too much for my brain atm, but: Good jerb.

Very cool idea, but figuring out how to use all the operators available to you is very tricky. I would recommend have some progression of levels in the beginning where you introduce operators one at a time so the player has time to figure out exactly what everything does.

Interesting. A little overwhelming--build-up would help make it more manageable.

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.
