Atmospheric as hell! The graphics and lighting were gorgeous as well. I don't want to spoil anything, but overall extremely depressing.

Great work!

You create feelings as much as you make games. Like your previous game it makes me think of things I hardly ever do while playing a game. Great theme usage. We all only really get one other who will cast light on the dark holes so we can see them and safely jump over them to go on. The two friends reminded me of the old Head Over Heels game from the C64, Spectrum.

Nice mood and lighting. Could a monk fall in love with fairy? Interesting! Well done!

Great game, and a great message in the story too.

Awesome atmosphere & pixel art. The light effects are very cool, the colors too. The only problem is the very linear gameplay. Overall, good job !

The constant clicking sound got a tad annoying.. Otherwise nice game and Lovely pixelart. :)

Nice idea, but could have used more gameplay elements. As mentioned before, it's very linear.

Interesting use of light and good game mechanics. I know that you probably made the music yourself, but I found it quite annoying, you might consider changing it or removing it altogether. Ovwerall, a good atmospheric game.

So sad. REALLY great interpretation of the theme. Loved this game, only the sound effects were below the niveau of the rest of the game. Still one of the best entries.

For some reason I love games with light mechanics. There aren't enough of them. Lovely game. The messages in the game were touching.

Simple and clean. I like the concept, though I think the dual control scheme would work better with some puzzles. Nice atmosphere, although it feels a little preachy.

I really enjoyed it. I liked the way the two characters interacted with each other.

this one really got to me! beautiful use of interaction, dialogue and concept! great work!

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.


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.
