Very nice, good challenging set of levels. Felt like the graphics improved as it went along. I Thought the initial colours were too plain bright but the details in the later levels looked much better by comparison.

As a frequenter of r/seventhworldproblems I found this to be most pleasing. good level design and progression from simple to more complex.

Gameplay was fluid and I ran into no bugs, the game was overall pretty fun, the graphics where...different :D

Okay, I hadn't come across r/seventhworldproblems before. The world is a very strange place...

On a more on-topic note, good game. Challenging, and a little confusing in places, but nicely atmospheric.

I enjoyed the heck out of this. I love the elements of storytelling in this game. I feel that a bad looping supermarket song would go perfect with this and cap it off as a great experience.

Good controls and level design. Only one that was a little unclear was the one with the checkerboard pattern in the bg. Took a second to figure out what was a wall or a floor.

Neat platformer. Noticed the guy's graphics evolved as it went along. Other than maybe one level, the colors didn't seem to matter much.

Nice style, the levels were the right amount of challenging for the game to be fun. Good work!

Good game. The graphics and text create a very unique mood. Platforming was chalenging, sometimes the shots seemed to get initialized before the platforms.

Interesting entry, some errors in the collision detection (where bullets went through walls that were not visible) made things tricky but otherwise good fun!

The story texts were pretty cool too :)

Very surreal, and lots of attention to detail. Graphics 5/5
Great atmosphere.
Gives me a feeling similar to "Babies dream of dead worlds"
Good work!

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.
