Vertical jumper taken to the max! Well, the minimalist max...I like how your character slowly grows and reduces in size (is this actually represented in the game?),

Very nice, takes a simple concept and executes it very well. Hits the theme in a great way.

Cool concept. You went along with the theme well. I'd only recommend you tweak the controls a bit. Feels to slow IMO

Not bad, an "art" game in the truest sense, like a painting come alive, some of the abstract painters might have liked that... :) Needs some sound/music...!

It was really hard to control the cube which made it less fun. Otherwise good job!

A nice game based on all this jumping games.
I really liked how you turned one of the pictures that turn up when you search for "minimalism" into a game.

We did something similar to a picture that appears some pages later on google picture search.

Minimal! Fun, but needs some sound to keep me playing. Nice job!

Great use of the theme. The black lines really add a lot, even though they add nothing. Warping from one side to the other was a pleasant surprise.

A nice concept and it fits the theme perfectly.

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.
