It was pretty good, but the blocks would occasionally slide in the wrong direction and trap me in them.

Solid game! love the "overworld". And the "bouncing". And the "Ta-DA" :)

There are definitely some occasional quirks with the blocks, usually only after the 2nd or 3rd repeated push. I'll be seeing if I can figure out what's going on with them in the next few days.

Wow! it's a really good game, I love the way the 10 second theme is tied in really well as to constrain the user, but not by the short 10 seconds

Good effort, looks really cool. The game was a bit short, but levels might be added after the compo, making this even better. Very nice!

Nicely made puzzle game. I like the use of darkness and pre-game planning with limited knowledge. You could probably make it more difficult, if you're thinking of extending the game post-compo.

Pretty cool. The text/narrator added a lot of character. The difficulty didn't really feel like it increased, but maybe that's something that could be addressed with more levels.

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 ( 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.
