The game is a Journey of Discovery, if you're not sure about something click on it. If something happens, it was probably meant to (but probably isn't a bad thing).

What a trippy game. Not sure I discovered anything. I tried to click on stuff but nothing happened.

This is going in the right direction, I dont get what happens when I click and some sort of pause menu comes up sometimes, I dig the lines at the top.

I wish the controls were more responsive.

I'm not sure if I won or lost in the end (I exploded and spread my circles), but nice game anyway. Eating sparkling things until I can eat my enemies(?) and them getting smaller. But I don't know what I was supposed to click. When I clicked on myself I could select my shape and the game would start again from the beginning.

The driving idea behind the game was that I would communicate entirely with the player via indirect feedback, but still maintain a cohesive and fun game. I guess it's actually pretty difficult :P

@Mnemusyne as you "level up" the controls become a little freer.

So i was flying around pooping potatoes, collecting yellow things and then i could eat other flying things, and there was a kitten outside the box and i tried to find a way to the kitten, but then my flier turned into triangle, then square, and when i was an octagon i exploded into potatoes. I have no idea what happened but it was fun. Cool game!

Very original idea. I enjoyed flying around getting more and more power then suddenly massive yellow block obscuring everything and game over... Great metaphor but very confusing.

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.
