Well that was very indie. Dont want to spoil for others but an enjoyable experience.

I think it would've been better with a second ending, but it's really nice apart from that.

Well, that was depressing. (but not rated badly for being so!) A rather philosophically existential message. I think I'll have a little cry now.

thanks DustyStylus.
Enjoy sometimes to hear some people tell the truth. But after a while they stop to talk they can not continue

It was an experience. I wouldn't say a nice one but I enjoyed my time playing it. It would have been better with an alternative ending, but I can see you got a lot done within the time you had :) Good job.

Bleak seems like a fitting word to describe this one. You certainly got the message across!

It's really depressing. I think telling the truth is the hard path, but the only one worth walking. Any way, I liked the island. I like the exploration and the narrative. Good job!

I'm not sure I would call this a game -- more of an interactive essay. I found the narrative pretty... uh... unmoving, mostly due to the inconsistent/vague writing. You obviously did something wrong to end up on this island... helping poor people is a nice sentiment, but how were you helping? Why do I care about saving you/me? What's with the trees?

The music was quite soothing, though.

Hi SimianLogic ,

When I was kid they told me "Bad people go to jail"
but when I grew up I saw some good people in jail

The initial text when the player tells her story sometimes is hard to read because of the text color and the background. Blue and black are the hardest ones. I think it would be better if you choose one color and stick to that.

Nice game, it took two days until it struck me despair of getting on the water :). Regardless of the captain death in every attempt, the accompanying music is very beautiful .. Liked. Thanks

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.
