Really enjoyed it! It's kinda hard to control the bonds with the mouse though, the bonds shouldn't just break when you touch any walls with them with the mouse.

Lovely little game, could make millions on iOS :) Bit slow to start though.

Best game I've played so far. Incredibly well thought out and put together. Very simple idea executed perfectly. Laugh the sounds, graphical style and the writing. Hat is off to you!

Very clever game. One of the best games of this compo. Reminds me of Antichamber.

A nice little puzzle. Would have been good to be able to set up multiple bonds at once, waiting during the later stages got a little boring. Good use of sound, but I'm not sure how well this really fits the theme.

Great puzzle game. Love the clean graphics and the ambient music a lot. This could be a great mobile game ! Good job :)

Wow, this one is great. I hope that it will be in top 10.

great design, though i wished you could undo your latest move. perhaps in a post-compo version?

like the music a lot too.

I'm definitely going to be doing a post compo version. So much I wanted to do that I never got a chance to. (Like multiple bonds, as someone mentioned already. I was kind of forced to stick with one because of the theme)

I wish I was smart enough to create puzzle games.

Good job!

Excellent work. I just wish solving one of the puzzles weren't dependent on knowing something the game never teaches you (that you can route around walls when creating bonds, as long as you keep your mouse in the black.) Other than that, terrific!

Interesting concept and the puzzles are well designed, I like it.

By far, one of the best games in this LD. I just believe a little anti-aliasing would help the eyes.

I really liked the game, but I think it's that case where your self- (and theme-) imposed limit of one link is getting in front of fun and doesn't add much to the game. I believe the game could benefit from lifting that restriction, not to mention you could create really fun mechanics and puzzles using an object linked with two or more other objects at once.

Woaaa the graphics along with the music make a charming and simplistic game, I love the mechanic and I think the whole idea is amazing! I spent a lot of time playing this and had a lot of fun. Amazing job with this :D FAV

@Mortus you're dead right, and I knew it would be better from the first few hours with more bonds etc... The good news is that after this competition ends I'll be making a much fuller version of this game with more time, more features, better graphics and, of course, no restrictions on the theme. :)

Hard to put this one down. The narrative hook alongside the puzzles is addictive because I want to see what's coming next. I enjoyed this entry a lot.

Great job! Small note, I feel like the only part that didn't fit the game was the particle "explosion". It's not in the style of the rest of the graphics.

Good concept and well designed ! The puzzles were very fun to solve. The realization is good, and sound design too !

I like the particle system when they meet :D

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.
