Bliss by Andre Nanninga.

Bliss is minimalist game about enjoying the waves of the ocean.

In reality I ran out of time and wasn't able to work in a goal or win scenario. Now it's just a simulation of blissful sailing which turned out quite nice in itself.

I made this with THREE.js and javascript.

The water and the model are a cool style. Very fitting.

great simulation, love the graphics

please use that for some game you might do in the future - I'd love to play it :)

Maybe a multiplayer canon ship deathmatch ?

Very cool, although there isn't really a goal or anything

The water simulation is great with a really appealing art style. Would have loved to play a game scenario built on this. Nicely done!

i liked the feel of sailing =). it crashed when i hit the edge of the world though =(. would like to see this game with the same basic sailing and a larger world.

It was very enjoyable to just sail around.

I would have also liked a bigger sea to roam around in, maybe some kid of infinite procedural generation deal?

Not really a game, but the base mechanics have potential for something.

Very cool-looking, and it's really fun to drive the boat around. I wish there were more game to it - I think it's a great start. The water effects, in particular, are great.

Can't download the source for this, I get a 404 error.

It's pretty. A shame it never became something more than an experiment.

The feel of the boat on the waves is fantastic. I wish there was some boundless ocean I could sail through.

First thing I did was try to get myself stuck on an island. I WIN! :D (can still move though somehow)
Waves look really cool!

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.
