O_O wow
3 hours ? how is that possible ?
did you have that models and animations already prepared ?
and the sounds ?
the code doesn't seem hard to make, but the art ...
i doubt you started from 0 and finished in just 3 hours

It doesn't seem to work, I hear the sound and I see Go Up Little Thing, but the screen is black and nothing happens. (I am using Chrome)

I assume the only control was the up arrow? It took me a minute to figure out the timing. Nice for 3 hours. :)

Looks nice, but I kinda doubt you have full rights to EVERY asset you used. :P

Still made me smile and looked very nice. :)

Nice mood and graphics. Rather simple gameplay, but very nice for 3 hours.

Hehe, I loved that ending. Am definitely curious as to which assets you got online and which you created yourselves. Nevertheless, it looks beautiful and builds to an unexpected and smile-inducing climax.

Amazing for 3 hours :D I guess could do with a bit more depth, but what more can I ask from three hours? Not much :)

Only three hours? Wow!

There's not a whole lot of game there (as you'd expect for only 3 hours work!), but it's pretty amazing how well it all works and I couldn't help but smile when the music kicked in.

Awesome graphics, realistic physics and control, great mood. If the gameplay can have more variety, then it's perfect.

3 hours? IMBA effect! :) But you need to change the ending sound to avoid suing :P

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.
