Audio scared the shit out of me. xD Nice name though. :)

Cool idea, wish the view port allowed me to see more of the scenario. Or that at least there was a hint as to where the portal was (an arrow?).

Good game. Sometimes it's a bit too hard to know where exactly the portal is, and sometimes I feel it's really dependent on luck alone if I can or can't find the portal.

Audio is very scary. The game is very challenging :) Nice job.

Hahahahaha, this one really threw me for a loop and I was constantly disoriented. Lotsa fun!

Audio is great - could have done with an indication where the portal was, however, allowing me to chase it down! Jumping was a little imprecise - had no sense of really being in control.

Thank you for all the comments, I'm glad you had fun with the game and get scared with the audio too. In the near future we intend to improve those ideas and fix things like "Where is the portal?". Sorry for my English, I am not native speaker.

The funny part is that I was responsible for the music and sounds, without knowing any theory or practice with it, I loved all these feedbacks.:D

Good concept, scary audio, funny name and generally nice. My only complaint is that there's no way in telling where the portal is, it's just luck. An arrow or something would be helpful :)

I don't like installers :(

The game was fairly solid in all aspects, though it was very repetitive. Not being able to know where the portal is makes it almost impossible to go back in time more than two or three times.

Kinda hard to get to the portal xD

Nicely done, though i think your audio needs a little work on, i think it's too loud. Also, had a hard time figuring out what was the portal in the first place.

Regardless, nicely done :)

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.
