Awesome stuff, dude! The more I played, the more comfortable I felt with each variation.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 4:30am

Very cool effect. The first where change every 10 seconds was actually cool. Very fun.

Darklotus says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 4:32am

Very trippy, you want to keep playing to see what the next effect will be.

aarh you totally hacked my brain brah

Richard Matey says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 4:32am

Wow I really loved playing with this. Very innovative idea on changing the perspective every 10 seconds. HOW DID YOU DO THE DOT MATRIX STYLE. Love that part, please give me a comment back to let me know how you did that. :)

So that's what taking drugs is like, huuuuhh? :)

Nice ambiance and effects!

rylgh says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 4:34am

Damn, dude. Such cool effects. Wish this was part of the compo so I could look through your source and play with your shaders.

BloodJohn says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 4:37am

nice puzzle for vision

barcode says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 4:37am

Such a neat idea - definitely one of the most stylish games I've played in LD27 so far. I got lost and fell quite a few times but was motivated to play again to figure out how to get around the structure.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 4:38am

This is super impressive. I'm going to have to check out some more of your games :)

Aug 27, 2013 @ 4:40am

5 out of 5 stars this is a amazing Game and really good execution. just a amazing game!!!

Whoa. Really cool concept and execution!

Astounding shader work you got there dude. I absolutely could not do with the first one though :(

Man your game has a bug.

moonmagic says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 5:11am

WOW. Beautiful.

Nerlin says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 5:35am

Great game, but I think that theme Glitch is the theme of this game, not "10 seconds" theme, but it looks cool.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 5:37am

An unconventional idea! I like the switching-channel-sounds and the overall look and feel of the game. It took me a moment to get it :D, but then it was quite funny. I have to confess, I also didn't make it off the island and/or reached the goal of the game (is there any? :D).

Terrifying. But I liked it.

I don't really know which way I'm supposed to be going, but I hope I can figure it out because this style is super cool.

Zephyr89 says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 6:19am

Nice feeling you've got there. But where's the gameplay?

Vaughn says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 6:20am

Great, moody and visually disorientating. Love this stuff. Nice exploration with a surprise "DEATH" ending ;)

Aug 27, 2013 @ 7:01am

Somebody was hoping for a different theme, eh? ;)

Great effects, but I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do. Seemed like an obstacle course maybe? Dunno. I kept dying b/c I couldn't tell where I should go next.

I eventually got super lost, and some of the glitches are straight-up blinding rather than just trippy but DANG that was cool.

Slick looking game, the effects made it fun-hard and I kept replaying until I got to the end.

Flai says ...

Great game :) ! Really like the mood and the graphics!

Tgwizman says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 8:00am

Loved the effect, but some of those effects were hard to deal with. I would constantly look down to see my footing, but I would still fall through certain gaps that I could see in other effects.

I really loved the rasterbation effect :)

Valerien says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 8:04am

The concept is nice, however the controls aren't very responsive : the camera moves too fast while the character has much inertia and is very slow. I think you have something that visually works, one effect aside (the first one hurts the eyes a bit, at least for me) though, there's a nice ambience.

DaVince says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 8:22am

Ahh, I was looking forward to playing this, but Linux has no Unity Web Player! Standalone version, please?

infernet89 says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 9:27am

Really nice exploration game in a weird geometric world when perspection change every 10 seconds.. Too bad the theme wasn't Glitch, that could be a winner.

ashdnazg says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 9:52am

I haven't finished it, but I can already say it's pure madness (that's good!).

Bekokstover says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 10:18am

Great game, Travis. I got pretty far on my 3rd try, all the way to the top somewhere. But then it's hard! I would love to get some more reward then just not dying, but overall this looks very very cool.

Xgor says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 10:50am

Ok that was freaky... but in a good way. Really cool game. I found myself waiting a bit for other variations when I couldn't see where I would go but I didn't get that bored of that.

lcarpentier says ...

This is a good idea well executed. Kudos.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 12:53pm

Very cool effects. But I went up some kind of tower and could not find out where to go next.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 1:06pm

Nice shaders! Amazing game!

Aug 27, 2013 @ 1:15pm

Dayum man! This is AMAZING! <o>

So simple and so immersive and fun! Pretty challenging too!

I loved your game! <3

Nice concept, really trippy.

Have you actually tried this with the rift, though? I'm already feeling a little bit nauseous from playing this on my PC, can't imagine how it would feel to play it with the rift.

Incredible entry.

Pretty great idea. I was a little bummed when the effects started to loop, but I was enthralled until then! Had to see what was next haha, great entry

5/5for innnovation, is this done by dynamically changing shaders?

holy crap, my eyes burnt D:

Aug 28, 2013 @ 1:53pm

I love the glitch, but the game concept is a bit too short. (it seems nothing happens when you're on the top)

Clavus says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 6:42pm

Tried it with my Rift. All except for one of the shaders is really bad for Rift users, really messes up the immersion and your orientation. As for the game itself, it's quite simple but not too interesting.

flamecow says ...

Very, very unique game. Awesome effects and style.

klianc09 says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 11:43pm

You really must hate my eyes and my brain. I touched a skeleton and then I restarted. Did I finish it, or did it kill me? And now I'm confused what I should rate on graphics, because they are really bad, but they are intentionally bad, and they are really good at being bad, so are they now good or are they bad?... ough, so many questions, so little time...

Aug 29, 2013 @ 12:11am

Awesome experimet

namrog84 says ...
Aug 29, 2013 @ 5:41am

great music/audio, voiceover was beautiful.

Great story/mood

Loved the dove scene!!

Although the story is the primary goodthing. The gameplay does complement it nicely, but i think the gameplay aspect of it could be reworked slightly.

Just finished and overall it was simply brilliant

namrog84 says ...
Aug 29, 2013 @ 5:44am

That was one trippy game.

As cool as the effects were, I would have preferred them turned down. Definitely hurt my eyes on some of them.

wintermute says ...
Aug 29, 2013 @ 8:26pm

Very well done, although it is difficult to understand the goal. But still, great.

Played this on the rift, very trippy experience. I had trouble controlling the character because my movement direction was not bound to my viewing direction, other then that, a great game.

I really like the shifting graphics and soudn effects!
Really nice work :)

ratking says ...
Sep 8, 2013 @ 9:19am

Great idea. I love the visuals, although I have no idea what I see exactly. I think I would have preferred an exploration game more than a platformer.

Wooohh... WTF ?!

Sep 8, 2013 @ 1:59pm

I like the effects, some are harder to deal with than others, but I really enjoyed the game! Maybe more colors would have been great.

manuq says ...
Sep 8, 2013 @ 7:16pm

I love GLITCH! I wanted a game like this since I saw the effects in "experiment 12".

megashroom says ...
Sep 8, 2013 @ 8:00pm

Nice idea and implementation! Some of the visual effects were completely impossible to decipher, but I suppose that fit with the game perfectly.
Genuinely difficult and enjoyable!

alts says ...
Sep 9, 2013 @ 7:39am

This is the first game to ever give me the sensation of motion sickness. And I didn't even play it on the oculus. I think I "won" insofar as the game is "winnable". Nice work.

GFM says ...
Sep 9, 2013 @ 4:09pm

Amazing concept and incredible graphics! This was really unique.

Cosr says ...
Sep 10, 2013 @ 3:31pm

I loved this. There's some really sweet glitchy stuff this compo (which gets to be extra unique since it wasn't the theme). Visuals and audio were both great.

Found a skelington thing, and it...killed me? Or was me? But it doesn't matter, cause it was a cool experience.

I wish I had an oculus rift so I could damage my everything playing this.

Sep 15, 2013 @ 12:49am

The different transitions are cool and unique. reminds me of tron for some reason

dudsen says ...
Sep 15, 2013 @ 9:57am

Crazy, stuff. Thankfully i dont have a Oculus, otherwise my brain would have melted :D

Sep 16, 2013 @ 8:40pm

Absolutely great idea, and the graphics are perfect. It gave me the same horrified fascination as an actual broken game. A great mood: just wandering around this glitched world with no idea what I'm supposed to be doing.

Unfortunately, the graphics make the jumps very hard to gauge. I didn't play to the end, but I very much enjoy what I've seen.
