I don't realy understand what to do. When all eyes are closed and only black diamants came out ... what do I have to do?

Hey xaby, Collect the diamonds that do not destroy you and fly around by pressing the arrow keys.

Gosh, I love the vibe of this game. Graphics, music and sounds create a really interesting mood where it's already fun to fly around and watch the Sorrowbeast.

I am rather confused what to do though. I wait a long time (Longer than 10 seconds, right? Where does the theme come in?), then the beast cries, I catch its tears and wait again. Is there anything I am supposed to do instead of waiting? Is there a score? Does it get harder over time?

Awesome graphics and audio make it feel dark and moody, very cool idea.

Controls were a bit odd, but man is that art good.

Really sets a great mood.

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.
