The atmosphere of the game is nice, though the graphics looks a bit like cropped they stand nicely. The concept for the 10 seconds cant be seen so easily though, It took me some time to understand that the character is clock (or is it?), though it looks more like thermometer.

Nice and simple puzzle game. The player's hitbox is far different from what I expected. It seems procedurally generated, and was spitting out levels that seemed impossible. I got one level that only had 2 shards to pickup, making it literally impossible.

I'm surprised you didn't make a web build considering you're using unity, it often helps to get more plays.

Interesting puzzle game idea. I like how the levels are randomly generated. But that also has the disadvantage that the levels are sometimes extremely easy and sometimes unbeatable.

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.
