Chronic Hysteresis

by Winterblood - Jam Entry

Your temporal experiment is a success...partially. You have created a time machine, but as a side effect reality is folding in on itself. You have 10 seconds to escape the building, but with your new device you can Time warp back to the moment the collapse began...

A turn based puzzle game. Use cursor keys and T to time warp.

Only 6 levels, I'm afraid. Short and sweet :)

Can definitely see a lot of mileage in the core concept here. Would be interesting to see some more levels even just using these elements.

Think it looks good as well despite the simple presentation. Love the name btw :)

Really liked how the core mechanic was used in this. Died a few times when time warping on second two or one and I wasn't completely sure why. I'd definitely like to see what else you could do with the concept. Great work overall!

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.
