Cool concept and I really like the graphics.. What software did you make the background in? Nice job!

Ahhh... it took me a while to realise that the triangles were there - they're a bit hard to spot against the background. Interesting mechanic, although the ball is quite hard to control, especially when there's not much room to manoeuvre.

If only the game had a for more game-y element like a time counter, point counter, etc. I would feel more invested in spending time avoiding the dangers. As it stands now it's more of a poetic toy, which is still pretty cool :)

The visual style is excellent and I hope you keep developing it!

Agreed - triangles were pretty hard to see, but it was nice to be able to use keyboard or mouse to control :) And using the other as a shield was nice too!

Not sure what I'm supposed to do, but it looks nice... :)

Nice idea, however the behavior of the sphere combined with its size make it rather difficult to keep it alive for more than a few seconds.

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.
