I couldn't get it to work... The mouse controls worked, but the keyboard ones didn't. Too bad, it looked quite pretty.

I get the feeling this is probably quite cool, but I can't for the life of me figure out what I'm supposed to be doing. W is forwards, but it doesn't seem to do anything? :(

wow, so pretty! and clever idea! it's presented very well. controls show don't work, instead 'Z' is move forward, and 'Q' is rotate counter-clockwise. good job!

Apr 29, 2014 @ 3:21am

Ok guys ! So sorry we were in Azerty ! We are french dudes here !

We are currently reuploading a new version with both controls


Sorry we forgot about it during the final rush.

Hmm, for some reason I had to use Z to move forward and Q/D to turn, which was a bit awkward. I like the concept quite a bit, but I think it could have been a bit more challenging.

Still getting a blank page here :'(

It's not working. Liked the atmosphere and colors though. Please get it working. Looks great!

Apr 29, 2014 @ 3:29am

nddrylliog : We were reuploading we're really sorry about it, it should be perfectly working now

aneeslol : Sorry again guys, we totally forgot about the english mapping

Apr 29, 2014 @ 3:33am

asotelo94 : Thanks ! Hope it will work now ! You got a DL Version in case of problems

I really love the idea, but the controls are very unintuitive. It would be much easier to drop rotation and always move away from the camera. Thus controling the movement direction with the mouse only.

Incredible! Really, really awesome.

Really cool how the ground moves, I love it! The controls were a bit weird though, and my character got stuck once or twice.

Tuism says ...

Oooooh. I think I like this. But it's a bit loose (see what I did there):

There's very little indication that the character was directional - I spent several tries trying to move him up down left right like regular directions, when I was supposed to drive like a car.

The zoom and rotate seems superfluous - like something the game should be smart enough to do for you.

Not sure what the light beam does.

Otherwise the gfx are PRETTY and the sound gorgeous. Just need to iron out some niggles and probably put in some more variety in what happens/what the player can do/etc.

AWESOME GAME! The game play is so addictive and the atmosphere is perfect.

Once I got it, it was fun.

I honestly don't understand why I wouldn't want to hold down W. You're hurting my finger. I also can't tell what direction I'm facing - which is probably why I spent the first minute wondering what the hell was going on.

Wow! Super awesome idea, really innovative! Add some story/levels and I'll buy that! :)

Totally outside the box, I love it!

Very original idea, and the balancing felt pretty good. Only problem was the little guy being round, it made it hard to see which way was forward. Good job otherwise :)

Beautiful graphics and atmosphere :) bit hard to play with a touchpad,but overall an awesome entry! I especially like the simplicity of the graphics :)

Apr 30, 2014 @ 9:56pm

This is a really cool concept!
I love it! It's unlike anything I've seen before :)
Congratulations! :D

Nice concept, but the control could be improved. A high score could be cool to challenge yourself or other players.

anvoz says ...

Really really cool idea! This should have an arrow to show the direction where your character moves forward.

Survived for 1:24! Interesting concept, although, it took me a while to get use to the controls! Loved the art and music! Great work!

Very chill setting and gameplay, I really dug it. Something very OCD about it. Great work and use of a dynamic mesh like that!

The combination of changing colors with the music set a nice mood, well done!

Hi. Interesting idea. Found that holes got too deep to escape from really quickly. Tried to take your advice to move forwards, but that didn't seem to be able to out-run the sinking.

Interesting game. The controls were a little awkward, but the graphics were cool. Good job :)

Really nice gfx ^^

I really like this one. Well done.

Fun and kinda relaxing at the same time.

Quite impossible with a trackpad.

Very pretty!
Had to get a bit used to the controls, but the tutorial slides helped.
I really like the changing colors, and I'm really wondering how you did the morphing mesh!

Very nice! I love the terraformation. It reminds me of a game called Wetrix

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.
