Left click to pick up the crystal (walk close to it) Once you get one crystal, you'll be able to shoot The game has several different levels, there are climbing walls after the first one. To climb up the wall, walk close to it and hit space. Once you've grabbed, you can move left and right. You can also get up and down (W and S respectively) You can't pass the level if you didn't get the crystal Unfortunately we didn't have time to implement these tips in game.. You play as a little girl Anett, who seeks the cure for her mother in these mysterious caves

Stellar! Love the colors and the mood, and really appreciate the instructions on controls beneath the Unity player.

Very impressive graphics and animations. The music is wonderful. I had fun running around the world.

The gameplay was a bit confusing, as I thought the white orbs were my friends but it seemed like they were killing me.

Cool art and good graphics. Excellent music, possibly my favorite part of the game. I couldn't see the controls on my screen though, was I missing something? I feel like I'm supposed to do something with the torch at the beginning. Couldn't seem to get past the wisps.

TeamPurpleDolphins, you need to left click while near the stone (torch) to pick it up to be able to finish the level.

Visuals were really nice, character movement also felt pretty good for a LD entry. The wisps moved a little fast, or were just too difficult to hit though.

Graphics are amazing! I really enjoy the music as well, really sets the mood well. I fell through the wall to the left when approaching the green crystal

I really like how it feels to be inside the game world, such a good mood for the story. Couldn't tell that the white orbs were trying to hurt me, didn't understand what was happening when I died(?) and the game reset me back to where I started. I think it could use better visual feedback for taking damage.

It's very pretty, but there are some things I miss. I miss having a visible lifebar, or some indication of how much life I have left (if it is one-hit kill... okay, I don't know).
I miss knowing where I'm shooting at, and/or how far my shot goes.
And yeah, that's it.

I like the art style, the sounds, and it's a pretty interesting game.

Ah! About my previous comment, I feel like an idiot, I just noticed that I shoot to where the mouse points. I don't know where was I pointing to before LOL. One thing less to my missing list then!

It is our fault to be honest, we didnt have to implement UI and hints on controls :)

Didn't have time I mean!

Can't pass the 3rd level, but great mood anyway

Apr 30, 2014 @ 5:00am

Wow, that's the girliest set of polygons! Good job!

I fell through the world though, left of the first ledge you have to climb, right before the 2nd crystal.

Woah, amazing job on the visuals, animations and sound! The animations in particular are incredible! I find controlling the character with the keyboard and shooting with the mouse to be a little difficult, I would prefer to have complete control with the keyboard or the possbility to move the screen with the mouse. Wonderful mood, good job!

LIked the control scheme but maybe there should be a way to move a bit faster. Good game overall!

Nice entry. Looks very good. Nice moody audio. I wish there was more variety to the combat. Otherwise, I really enjoyed this one. Great work!

A very nice atmospheric game, very immersive. The sound and the visuals really help to get us into these caves !
I wish the character was a little more detailed, since it is present in the screen all the time (maybe some texturing would help ?). Also the level design could be improve, to balance challenge and progression. Great job anyway !

Interesting visuals, cool ambiance, good mood.

This is really cool! It reminds me alot of our game Ice Hop, which is also a third person platformer with crystals. Seems we were on the same page. ;)

Ohh, this is neat. Love the rolling and shooting :)

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.
