The maze idea in 3D was a good idea. I also like the shortened vision. I thought that made the game very difficult, which in the end, made it less appealing to me.

Really nice concept. The limited vision mode was a bit harsh but I suppose that's the challenge!

A bit tedious at times reaching end after dead end, but there's some fun to be had in trying to remember which paths I've already taken.

Sometimes feels like there are impossible rooms such that they overlap each other...or maybe it's just me? Hmm...

Wow, really claustrophobic. I like the exploration aspect of the game, and trying to remember where I've been so as not to backtrack too much.

I think I might have gotten a bit lucky on the first 4 floors as I mostly found the stairs quickly.

Frantic and well done! The levels are interesting and challenging and the simplicity of it works in it's favor!

Most confusing thing I ever played...

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.
