A simple game about time perception.

Can you have a perfect timing ? even while the game is messing with you ?

For now, only for desktop recent versions of Firefox / Chrome.

Technical details : all in HTML / JavaScript / CSS3
I tried to work a lot on the code structure, to experiment new ways of organizing code. Not clean yet, but almost entirely event oriented.

All musics composed and recorded on Reaper / Ableton Live

External libs used :
- underscore
- requirejs
- jquery
- howler
- impress

External asset used (those are allowed in rules) :
- google font Kranky
- google font Henny Penny

This was really fun. I ended up closing my eyes for the last couple, is that cheating? ;)

This is really amazing for something done in HTML/CSS/JavaScript.

Nice use of the various js libraries. Didn't really enjoy the game myself but I can see it's very well made. Good job!

Beautiful use of transformations and style - and the concept of the game itself - fabulous. Really fabulous. I got about 3500 drift over the levels :)

Great game, and very cleverly fitting to the theme :)

Very unexpected, and a pleasant surprise. I do not know much JavaScript, but the end result is something great.
One question though : is it possible to score 1000 points on a test (personal best was 998-1ms too late) ?

Thanks for the kind comments. Some replies :

@greysphere "I ended up closing my eyes for the last couple, is that cheating? ;)"

hmmmm let me see.... YES !!!! ;-)

@Jhelle "Didn't really enjoy the game myself"

Yes, same here. It's not really what we could call a fun game. I wanted to explore on perception, because one of these days I'll try to launch mini games on this theme. This first attempt here makes me see that the player is too passive. Something is missing.

@Delca "is it possible to score 1000 points on a test (personal best was 998-1ms too late) ?"

Technically yes, if you achieve 0 ms. But it will be by pure luck, because your browser does not listen on keyboard or mouse events every millisecond.

Quite nice game. Really liked the music and very cool use of the transition effects between levels.

A really good reactions game. I like how you used the music to mess with my timing.

Was nice how many little variants/levels you were able to make from the general idea/mechanic. :) Great work!

Awesome idea. Awesome game.

Just sometimes the level had a delay between the instructions and the go.

really cool. Got 4439 as my score. I didn't think it would be as fun as it was

Aug 26, 2013 @ 8:27pm

Great! Like a science fiction story from the childhood. About two children which learned sequences.

Fantastically excecuted, brilliant design, superb audio work.

Sure, one could argue it is not "gamey" enough, but that doesnt change the fact i am very impressed what a polished product you were able to offer. Seeing how i know absolutely nothing about HTML/CSS the smooth fadeouts and transitions are even cooler.

Great job.

I like it, pretty simple but challenging game. Visual effects are perfect too!

Really innovative take on the theme, and well-executed. Pretty fun for a game all about counting to ten. :)

What a nice game. I loved the transitions between the "levels" and the music was great. Loved how it fucked with my mind :)

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.
