Unst is a game about moving things forwards by clicking on them until they form rectangles or go away. That's all there is to it.

(I guess you can press 'r' to restart too. Hopefully that doesn't make it too complicated to be minimalist. Strictly speaking, you don't ever *need* to press it, so it *could* be removed)

This is a wonderful example of a simple puzzle mechanic taken to a point where I'm really bad at it. Good work! I love the music!

Super great puzzle game. I am stuck on "The Chosen One".

Brilliant simple, dare I say minimal, rules that generate complex and mentally challenging gameplay.

Nice concept! It's very well implemented, although the difficulty curve goes sky high on "The Chosen One" lol!

Nice puzzler. Actually, this is pretty hard and I actually failed in the 3rd or 4th level. However, there is no "quite" or "reset" button built in (or none evident).

I like games that teach game-play simply and gradually, and this is definitely that.

Pretty cool. Gets really hard really fast though. Couldn't get through "finale".

Although the music was a little repetitive, the rest of the game was great.

I'm stuck at "Tetris". The difficulty ramp is very high, the game becomes way more difficult at "The chosen one". But it made me think a lot : I liked the challenge. You managed to make an interesting puzzle game with a good looking aspect and fitting music (tho a bit repetitive after 10mn, but that's bearable). Extremely simple yet deep. Congrats !

OMG, I made it! Finally, "The chosen" one was the only one which I couldn't solve by thinking, I just tried randomly until the solution was there. Also implementing a "M" button, like in "mute" would have been great.

The difficulty quickly went from "Ah, it's simple" to "OMG too hard!" The level design was excellent until the end.

Found it through the 10s compilation project and this was a rare example of a game that I couldn't imagine how to play by the sheer looks of it. Good stuff. It's a nice puzzle, though the difficulty escalates quickly and the lack of undo button (combined with slow animations) make the mistakes time consuming. I managed to get to the tetris level, solved it after some time and then called it enough. But it was fun!

Good job!

Fantastic puzzle game Milo, well done.

Wow, nicely done! Those are some fiendish puzzles. Reminds me of the Klotski/SameGame style of puzzles. That last level took some clever movement to solve. I felt like I was thinking sideways and relying on intuition.

Found through the 10s video.

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.
