I don't understand what this has to do with "10 seconds?"

Is that because I'm color-blind that I've got trouble to play this game? x)

I didn't really get how the color effected the world... it was really pretty, though.

High five fellow Gamemaker user!

Like the others said, I like the simplicity of it, and I think the music fits that feel (it was nice to have a more relaxing soundtrack after the stress of the competition and the speed-based entries).

However, the mechanics left something to be desired. It doesn't seem like the color changing has any effect on the game, nor does the ball that activates music. It would have greatly benefitted from strict orthogonal, grid-based movement (think Pokemon puzzle league.)

Also, what do you mean by "Play on christmas day to see the difference."? I changed my date and time and nothing changed (would be really cool if something changed, am I missing a joke?)

Overall I enjoyed the game, but I was left a little confused (I was only able to get to the first black and white stage, I guess I got restarted then?).

Possible issues with running this game on a Windows 7 64-bit computer? At times the blocks disappear and start blinking out when you move... wish I could play!

Problems with blocks should be fixed, although I don't think it's because of your OS as I have the same, but hopefully i fixed it now, tell me if problem persist

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.
