Not a bad attempt. Easy to play.

Going off the screen renders the game in SEIZURE VISION. The game supposedly lasts for a week, but you're alive for eight days rather than seven. And you never dig a specific pattern in the sand.

Wait... what? Mysterious pattern indeed. Some diver will be totally confused when exploring the sea ground :D

What's with the rap thing at the end? The mood is nice, though. Poor fish!

The idea was interesting but I wasn't sure if the story was supposed to continue; I stopped after 8 or so days because nothing seemed to change between rounds. Also at times the day would end without letting me eat. Trying to leave the game area through the top of the screen caused some really cool stuttering effects! Overall I liked the concept.

Not really finished, but nice game. Also very easy to learn/play.

Hypnotic game. The rythm of the game is interesting but a bit too repetitive. Maybe some juicy effect/features could fix that to have a fully enjoyable game, also some audio.
Bug: The camera goes crazy if I go high.

Interesting. Aside from the camera losing it's mind if you swim to high, it was well made, but not particularly fun.

Interesting game. I swam off screen, though, and the camera got really really shaky

Good job :)

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.
