Really fun to play, it's challenging and addicting, and it makes me laugh every time it crashes. wonderful job!

Ha, it actually breaks after 10 seconds.

Nice visual stuff. I like the inverting of the colors. I also notice the Sosowski-Style beat in the background :P

It traverses it's own memory. This is really cool. Although more a techdemo than a game...

There's a great sense of speed to it, once you get going. I wish it lasted longer. I think it would also player better (easier, at least) if the left and right arrows controlled strafing instead of turning.

Weird, but I wouldn't expect anything otherwise from Sos, the Marcel Duchamp of indie game devs :D

Aug 27, 2013 @ 8:40pm

Haha it's kinda like a super speeded up version of ice fishing v at least in the visuals and the mindfuckingness of it all!

Aug 27, 2013 @ 9:16pm

Crashes on death for me :/

Hahaha, I didn't expect the title to be so literal! Very nice visuals and sense of speed. I liked it a lot.

I'm a bit disappointed, I thought my monitor would explode.

But the idea is great! ;-)

Even though this game does crash, its a pretty cool game and a great idea :P I featured it in my compilation video of Ludum dare 27 games, if you'd like to check it out

This is the only game so far to make me laugh. :)
On one of my attempts I heard a robotic voice start to say something unintelligible right before it crashed... Does... Does that mean I win?

I don't know why I find this so enjoyable, but I really like your implementation of the theme.

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.
