by TheHobbit9797 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You´re on a iceplatform. It´s getting warmer and warmer. Just 10 more seconds until the ice will melt. But one cube is made of diamond(also looks like ice), so it wont melt. After the first 10 seconds are over you can´t move anymore(you are terrible ill). It´s your goal to reach the one safe(and random) cube before the 10 seconds are over.


I used a little cubemap from a package(GemShader) from the Unity Asset Store. I guess this counts as publicly available middleware ;)

Sorry for no sound :(

Its a nice idea, but i couldnt see the difference between ice blocks and the diamond one. Also, the blocks should dissapear faster :)

Beside of shader overkill: Is there any way to detect the diamond?
I can move on any block, wait for the timer to run out and then watch as I fall down (or with lots and lots of luck survive).

It's not particularly fun :)

Nice game, but the ice disappears too slowly for my tastes.

Because its random each time, you can't find the diamond block in ordr to move to the next level! I lost countless times and never got further than the start berg.

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.
