Thank you ;). You just have to let the canons spawn after your death

How is that related to the theme and where's the "taoism" part ? Gameplay-wise, how are you supposed to know which laser to dodge ?
IMO, you probably should've put the score somewhere else so you can really see your avatar. Also, triggering a sound when a new laser appears seems to be an useful feedback.
The idea is neat though :)

My interpretation: Dance Dance Revolution meets Dark Overlord Underworld Remix. I like it! The timer text is blocking the view in the center though.

Looks very atmospheric, only the game itself feels as if it's impossible.

This is actually a very cool concept. It gets insanely hard way too soon though.

Although the title was appealing to me I actually had little fun playing to the game.
I was kind of feeling deceived by the title which was pretty 'sexy'
Maybe it's because I found it too repetitive and random or too fast for me.

Wow this is a hard game, nicely done though.

To begin, you get extra points for the game's title - it has to be one of the BEST game title's ever! :D

The gameplay is quite minimalistic, and I like its frantic, arcade-like quality. Graphics are also very nice.

That said, I became quickly frustrated by the randomness of the action. If you could have just added a small, subtle hint about when a laser is about to fire, that would have made all the difference in the world, as then you can make informed decisions. Split second informed decisions :D

Keep it up! :)

Somehow after playing this I don't feel very calm and in harmony with the universe. I want my money back :P
Love the art, a little too difficult for uncoordinated old me though :S

Sorry I haven't understand the gameplay.

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.
