IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.

WORMHOLES is my 1st attempt at any solo jam !
It's a Unity project, and primarily an exercise in generating meshes from audio data. The game starts by recording 10s of audio through your computer's mic input, so you have to allow access to your mic. A hundred levels are generated from these 10s, but you'll be lucky to even reach level 2.
You play as the pilot of a small spaceship, folding space to return home after years of space travel. The tunnels of space/time are long and narrow, and haste is your worst enemy, so make sure to use the hyperbrakes once in a while. They charge in 10s.
The music was made around a 51.2Hz bass, which is the 1st audible frequency to be a multiple of 0.1Hz, a frequency of which the period is... 10s. Also, the time signature being 10/4 and the tempo 120bpm, 2 bars last... ok fuck that, enjoy the trip.
Up/down arrows: navigate
On Win7, some laptops are set so the mic is inactive when running on batteries. If you're getting flat tunnels, you might want to check that.
Linux version lacks the executable flag, just chmod it.
The timelapse video is now available ! :)

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.
