In the game, you play as man who is trapped in an alternate dimension. To get out he must find all of the crystals that holds the dimension together. This will free him, but also make the dimension very unstable.

The crystals are very hot and their heat changes the color of what you see the closer you get to them.

I LOVE the art aesthetic in this! Though I must say the jumping was annoying.. the "short" jump was too easy to active when I wanted the "high" jump, and I felt like it was too short.. The controls made me die prematurely several times.

Great application of the theme though!

Really great art style. Jumping while running is a bit buggy. On the other hand, I had fun learning and beating the levels.

Pretty cool. I have a small issue with lag when jumping, but other than that, it was pretty darn fun!

I thought the controls were fine. Pretty challenging, good mechanic.

So good graphics, sound, game play. The only thing I did find need improvement is the jumping mechanics which glitched out on me.

I think this game was really really hard and made me very mad a lot of times. Therefore, you did a very very good job at it.
I literally took 2 hours to beat it.

Plus that music is just too cute. :3

This is minimalist, but really hard at the end. I love this two colored graphism, and the music goes well with the game, maybe it's a little bit repetitive. Anyway, I love this game ;)

Nice! Main character looks like a smiling toast and I like that :)

The colour changing mechanic was cool, but it didn't feel like the level design used it much. With some more interesting levels it could be much more fun :) Other than that it seemed pretty solid to me.

Took me moment to realize you can do a long jump. After that it was a blast. Loved the art direction and the controls felt quite good.

Cute little platformer!
Nice game mechanic, but I felt that it wasn't explored as fully as it could have been.
I enjoyed it!

The "The World is Collapsing" level could be made easier by reducing the obstruction by 1 tile. I felt it was too hard. Fun game otherwise :)

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.
