Had a hard time with the controls, but liked the effect of the speedway.

Unique and fun once I got used to the controls. I got all the rings :D. The ones outside the jetstream were annoyingly tough

Could not collect the two rings that spawned outside of the tunnel :(

Couldn't figure out how to do anything but spin and die.

Sorry, but this is unplayable (Linux version). No matter if i play windowed or in fullscreen, the mouse cursor is visible and not locked in place, and the camera stops turning when the cursor hits the edge of the screen. I also tried playing with a gamepad and with the keyboard, but that seems to rotate around the wrong axis/center or something. Couldn't get anywhere.

I'll skip rating this for now.

It was cool to get out of the tunnel and then try to get in again haha it was really nice to hear the wind outside and then everything gets calm again

I couldn't manage to get the two rings that were located outside. Nice sound.

Playing it in the web browser makes this nearly impossible to control.

The mouse on the web player is a bit finicky, it seems to lose focus easily. Also, there are two rings outside the track! Beautiful, though.

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.
