Well, rough around the edges but mostly playable. No lose condition but you can enjoy seeing what the random generator spits out.

Goal: Find other portals and go through them to explore the world. To open a portal, activate the six pillars around it by touching them. Unfortunately, your travelling between worlds awakes Darklings - ten seconds after you go through a portal a rift opens and Darklings will begin pouring out it. By picking up dreams you can fight back, but it's better to run.

Controls

P - Pause
Z or Left - Turn Left
X or Right - Turn Right
C or Enter - Use Dream

The two criticisms I have (hopefully they're constructive): even a little bit of audio would be awesome, and the ship was flying really really fast -- I kept adjusting the direction to get off an obstacle, but then would get stuck on another because I couldn't change direction fast enough.

Otherwise, really good promise in this game -- I'd love to see it fleshed out!

There's clearly a lot of tweaking left to do on the gameplay but I could see this being really good when it's finished.

A good start on a cool idea. Could use some sound and obviously more gameplay. The style is interesting!

I like the camera buffer but it appears to be facing the wrong way, you should be able to see more in the direction you are going not the other way round!

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.
