by Mesene - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A nice story about time travel and time paradoxes faced by love at first sight

"The next best seller of the decade"
"Still a better love story than twilight"

This LD has been quite strange, the game has changed direction several times to find a fun gameplay. Finally I've turned full the plot and the winning condition wich I'm very pleased

The game runs in Flash
Estimated game time is 3-4min
Contains three amazing alternative endings

And remember, if you ever travel in time do not touch your other self!

EDIT: Since many people asked for skippable dialogs I've uplodaed a postCompo version, You can skip them with ENTER.
Thanks for your comments! <3

I had fun with this. Really original implementation of the 10 seconds.

I would like it to have a better tutorial and... faster dialogs ;)

It took me a second to get the concept of what's going on, but once I did the game to be pretty fun. Also, nice beat-boxing! :)

"Fuck logic" :D Loving it man, awesome idea. Very creative (although it was a bit frustrating to go back to the start when the clone caught me :<) :)

This game mechanic is really original and creative, and the theme fits perfectly. However the objective is not very clear, maybe you can explain it better. Overall, a great job !

good idea, well executed. I agree that the dialogue needed to be faster or at least skippable. good work though! well done.

I'm always intrigued by time travel.

Nice take on the theme. Hard to understand what's happening at the start.

Great story and visuals and the gameplay is simply fun. This game has a lot of personality! My only complaint would be that I couldn't tell when I successfully jumped/dodged an obstacle and this caused a little frustration during an otherwise awesome game.

Sep 6, 2013 @ 9:24pm

Hahhh I rather be a superior being :]
Catchy music and catchy gameplay. Awesome interpretation of the theme!

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.
