Screenshot looks interesting. But we need a link, or else we can't play it :(

That's strange actually because I entered the link for the web version.

I'm having trouble figuring it out. I'm pressing and holding z. Sometimes I get a snare type sound. "Bright lines" comes on and off. Are there more controls?

Alright I managed to get to 10 BPM but got to quit because the game was pretty slow at that time. Otherwise was fun.

Clicking the button while on a line doesn't always register. I'm probably not very good at rhythm games.

Sorry, but this games doesn't seem to be working ... I don't think rating this would do any good... Sorry!!!! :(

Not really getting this one. Like others have pointed out. Hitting 'z' produces a snare drum sound, and it doesn't always do it. I was hoping pressing it while keeping to the rhythm would work but it didn't really do anything

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.
