That is it!
Path is a game where you need to make your own path to go to the next level.
It is a very simple game, try it! =)

Path was made with Unity 4.1 Pro (trial from Ludum Deals, cool!)
Music "made" with Autotracker-C (Incredible tool!)
SoundFX with Bfxr (Another incredible tool!)

very cool idea

Cool idea but the execution with the walls is absolutely horrendous. Everything is the same color so making sure that you don't hit the walls is even harder.

Best application of the theme I've found so far. Figuring out where exactly to stop to hit the cylinder is a bit tricky though..

Nice idea! The perspektive makes aiming impossible, though. This is like an MC-Esher-Painting

Nice idea! The camera makes the aiming somewhat random, i don't know how close i can get to the wall before dying.

The idea is great indeed.

Awesome game! I believe that controls needs some improvements but it's really fun, because is hard and challenging. Good job!

Very cool game. As some others mentioned, the perspective and lack of tools/reference to show us depth (shadows) made it really difficult to connect to the cylinder.

Nice job guys, your strong point was definitely the Theme. Great way to catch about minimalism.

Nice idea, simple and fun. The perspective didn't help, maybe showing a horizontal plane grid would improve that issue. Well done.

This mechanic is awesome! At the end I think I spent more than one minute just playing with it, if you take more time with it, you can make a real jewel!

Nice concept! I wish I could have some feedback on the 3D... on the first levels, when there isn't much to compare to while "navigating", i caught myself zigging ans zaggind till I could find the damn pipe... hehe
The loud sound effect of the character bumping in the wall made me jump on the first time... :P

This is pretty cool. I agree, its a bit of trial and error for understanding where you're at and how you relate to it. I'd suggest, walls have a stripe that aligns with your trail level. same with Cylinders, just for style.
Maybe also a transparent grid plane that moves with the trail?

Excellent minimalism game. Too bad there is no color to make the game more friendly and beautiful. Some sort of shading to help understand the position in the 3D space could be great too. Anyway excellent game !

Very fun! I wish there were more levels actually. Fantastic use of theme.

Nice game. I get confused by the perspective from time to time though. I never knew if I'm already inside the wall or not. But I played through it anyhow. Great job! Btw. I got approx. -8600 points!

Great -- perception of cylinders was a problem at first, but I suspect with more levels that could be taken advantage of. Super fun though.

Really interesting and fun, but soooo hard to guage the depth or distance of the obstacles...

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.
