- Light or Darkness? Noise.
Please read, at least, most of the text on here. It helps give you a better time playing the game.
== INTRODUCTION ==
You move using WASD keys, and you have to collect the rainbow-colour-thingies that are centered inside dark clouds absent of light. When you collect a rainbow-colour-thingy, the light rises and darkness diminishes. This is both a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing is that you move faster AND lose score at a faster rate. Oh, and did I tell you that negative score is a GOOD thing in this game?! The bad thing is that darkness only prevails where light does not reach, so you'll have to travel further to grow bigger. If you fail to grow bigger, the Noise will devour you! You'll hear the noise sounds as you lose sight of the light and darkness around you. You'll have to try again! The music doesn't stop, so why should you?!
== TIPS ==
* if you stand still, you will shrink at a faster rate and gain score (bad thing)
* the more light, the faster you move - the faster you move, the more score you lose (good thing)
* press 'r' to restart (Noise can't handle my magic)
* for every rainbow-colour-thingy you collect, you'll gain 50,000 points! (bad thing)
* light decreases at a slow rate
* darkness increases at a medium rate
* try to strategically collect rainbow-colour-thingies, because if you have TOO MUCH light, you will have a hard time reaching for them.

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.
