Controls: Arrow keys to move left and right, spacebar to jump and "a" to fire when you get the gun.

Hope you enjoy playing it!

Native windows and OS X versions available, just unzip and double click on the exe and you should be good to go.

For linux, you will need to install love2d first (small download) : https://love2d.org/
Update (thanks to CAukamp) : For those running *buntu: versions in the repo are too old. 0.8 directly from love2d.org using the link above works.
Then you should be able to just double click on the .love file and play.

Update2: Thanks for all of the feedback everyone! Made a minor fix which should solve some of the jumping problems people are experiencing, especially on windows. If they still show up please let me know your OS and I'll try to fix it.

Well done, though jumping stops working after the level with the triangles moving to the right.

Thanks Yorwba, that's unfortunate, that didn't happen for me. What OS are you on?

Thanks for actually compiling for Mac instead of just providing love file. Great Job!

Nice game. I liked the mood and the story telling.

A tip for people running *buntu: i had 2 versions of Löve in the repos, but they are to old. The 0.8 directly from love2d.org works.

Nice story, and the mood of the game fits well.

Quite a good and solid game. The one thing to note is that the game doesn't prevent you from going offscreen in any direction, allowing you to circumvent quite a few levels.

Nice platformer, the great storytelling incited to go forward all the time.

The game is very interesting. I like the style of the game, it fits the theme very well. The only thing I don't like about this game, is that the bounding of the triangles are boxes and not triangles are. I jumped quite often in these invisible boxes.

Nice game. This has a nice mood in it.

I really wanted to finish it... but it bugged so many times that I just gave up. :(
At some random (and different, each time) spot,jump would simply stop working.

I tried playing on a win7, 64bits.

Very nice, I was able to bypass some platforming by falling from the edge and was also able to hang on the ceiling. Nice story though.

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.
