Very good atmosphere and art style. The ambient, droning music is very fitting.

Amazing atmosphere, but it crashes for me when it says to press space... :(

Very cool graphics and sounds, creating a good atmosphere. I especially liked all the spike-y-circle-y-spinning things.

This game is so strong. Love the graphical elements used, the sound feedback. Everything is so beautiful.
The gameplay is pretty addicting too.

And I think the message is pretty easy to get. Or the motivation. The "artsy" part. I still find this game can be enjoyed without taking into account that aspect.

Very great.

This was a very cool experience. It looked a bit like Limbo and it was amazing art and map design. The game mechanic was as as well very cool to see.

Beautiful art & sound and a fun, original idea. Wish it was longer!

The style and ambience is fabulous. The platforming is fun, if a bit too "trial and death" at times. The premise and core mechanic both work very well, though.

Wow, impressive visual effects and music for such a short development time. I like the concept, never played a game like it. Great job!

Awesome mood and sound. Sadly it closed midway after i've pressed ESC by accident :(

Really unique game. I need some minuits to understand the basic system, but I could get it through the gameplay. Great work!

That was cool. Interesting mechanics, though I'm still not entirely sure what the other rings did even after completing it. Great atmosphere and interesting visual style.

This is a really great entry. I got stuck on a couple parts and was tempted to quit playing, but pushed through and got to the end. I think checkpoints in the 2nd level would be helpful. Audio was great, visuals were subtle and nicely done. Good job!

This is my favorite game I've played so far. I almost didn't go for it because it was download and not web, but I'm glad I did. I loved the mood and the graphics, and especially loved the music. Great job!

This is very educational content and written well for a change. It's nice to see that some people still understand how to write a quality post.

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.
