Nice job. I enjoyed the graphics and the wobbly motion as I walked around.

Very nice game. Though procedurally generated, the music is catchy and fits. I liked to roll around on the floor like an idiot XD Very funny take on the theme, I like it. I also like the artstyle a lot. Looked very awesome, when all the 3d 8bit trash fell on the ground ;)

No idea why I played this game for as long as I did, but nice job. Maybe it was the way the character moved and rolled? It feels so good!

Great premise and nice art style + humour. I had some problems with rubbish getting stuck in the corners, but nothing too serious.

Okay, based on the comments I have to be the first person to have discovered your theme :) VERY cute, VERY excellent secret, the only complaint I have is that your hit detection stops at one target. This is the ONLY game I will EVER 5-star. New reviewers, if you haven't discovered what's Beneath the Surface you haven't really played this game!

YES. This was amazing. I was having such a nice time pushing piles of crap onto the sensor, and then the COOKIES.

Thank you for this.

My favorite game so far haha I love it!

@atomic_swerve Haha, thank you! Was getting worried no one would find it. :P What do you mean about the hit detection?

Saved my dog. Style reminded me of Katamari.

This had me in stitches, the first time I rolled on the floor I burst out laughing. Wonderful entry, the art style (while simplistic) is great, the sound track I enjoyed, made me think of the gameboy colour era.

IAmSpencer says ...
Apr 28, 2014 @ 4:09am

That was way too much fun. I have never had more fun cleaning my room. The art was really clean and nice, the sound was good and fit the game well, and the rolling... oh my god the rolling. I think I had to much fun just rolling into the corner, haha really well done :)

Apr 28, 2014 @ 4:12am

I was smiling; it was so fun, but then the evil cookies came! D:

Really nice job!

ruerob says ...
Apr 28, 2014 @ 4:14am

That game is really fun. Would I have known that cleaning up my room would make so much fun and is so easy. I would have done it ten times a day.

Apr 28, 2014 @ 4:39am

I can see where the theme is placed at!
That's great all drunken guy and stuff~

Yay cookies!!

Alucard J says ...
Apr 28, 2014 @ 6:44am

I kept cleaning the cookies (which are even harder than the newspapers) just to listen to the music. Nice one, very funny :)

Nanolotl says ...
Apr 28, 2014 @ 7:45am

Really well done. The rolling and sword mechanics felt really satisfying. The happy music was great too. Amazing job.

Really nice style! Fun!

Cute interpretation of the theme. I really like the bottles of Arizona.

Reminds me of Katamari Damacy, but without the ball

ahahah great work !
This game is so cool (:

Apr 29, 2014 @ 7:43pm

Yesss. I got the cookies. Nice physics.

Gwinnell says ...
Apr 29, 2014 @ 9:37pm

Funny wobbly cube dude. I thought I'd completed it when I had cookies, and then BAM. I started rolling and rolling and SINKING. That was a good moment. Cake overlord consumed me though. :(

Where did you get the picture of my house? j/k lol, nice one, love the physics!

Playing this game was a fantastic experience. Everything fit together so perfectly and you really nailed the theme.

hissssssssss says ...
May 1, 2014 @ 2:02am

Great job on BOTH games!

About the second one, I felt like it would have been nice to be able to burn the cups by knocking them into the lava. I expected to be able to, but nope. Would have made my life easier.

But still, a game within a game? Fantastic job.

TobiasW says ...
May 1, 2014 @ 2:58am

Haha, wow - I had to watch the video for the full experience. Well hidden! Apart from being one of the few entries with a 5 star theme (and now I wish there were 6 stars, 'cause this is really above and beyond): Great art style and a lovely sense of humor. I especially liked the description. I always wanted to roll around the floor like an idiot.

(Also: Super secret bonus points for braveness, as you deliberately made something that most people won't get!)

COOKIES my perseverance has a REWARD!

Could play this forever if more garbage fell on me A+ trash game.

This game was a like a 4 star game even before the ending. With the ending it's 5. It's rare for a LD game to surprise me but this one very much did. It was cute, fun, and pleasant. Graphics were just right, mood, everything was great. It's a shame if you don't get the recognition you deserve for this game if reviewers only play the very very beginning.

Also my OCD is mad that I couldn't completely clean that room. I want a post credits vacuuming mini-game. :P

I've played and reviewed over 100 LD29 games and this might be my favorite yet. Great work, how big was your team, or was it just you? Because if the latter that's even more impressive.

I like how 2d and 3d go together here.

Nice game, took me a while to figure out how i got to second part,

This was really fun. The hidden "slow mo" dungeon was awesome. Nice work!

BEST GAME EVER! The cake lord killed me once above and multiple times beneath the surface. But I finally saved the multiverse!!

AlbertoSM says ...
May 5, 2014 @ 8:47pm

Repetitive music, the physics of the objects didn't help much, and the hidden quest is nearly impossible because of its unbalanced difficulty. Nice going, but polish it up more next time!

ZYXer says ...
May 6, 2014 @ 1:40am

Haha your game is funny. I cleaned up a room which was weirdly satifsying, then I got cookies, then I had to fight a cookie king. I'm not sure what just happend. But definitly well done!

May 8, 2014 @ 3:36am

My favorite game thus far. I included it in part 14 of my Ludum Dare compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out :)

May 11, 2014 @ 5:13pm

Frekking Amazing! I played it really enjoyed it, came to vote saw there was more went back and then I was like OOOoooooh! I think you hid it too well personally but very nice!

JoeProgram says ...
May 11, 2014 @ 5:15pm

Pretty excellent. I thought the game was over at first when the cookies dropped - it would have been better to start with something easier to push into the furnace. The playthrough video really helped too.

Incredible job. Really great game, loved everything about it :)

elefantopia says ...
May 14, 2014 @ 2:40am

Hahahahahahaha I spent at least 30 seconds rolling on the floor like an idiot!

elefantopia says ...
May 14, 2014 @ 2:40am

It made me happy so mood all the way to 5, ok I maxed up all the rating because, why the hell not.

Zerkruemler says ...
May 14, 2014 @ 7:15am

Interesting idea and cool implementation, but too difficult to be enough fun to motivate me further. The cookies just don't want to move at all which makes it frustrating. It is also not clear how much progress is needed to proceed.

zebi24 says ...
May 14, 2014 @ 7:46am

Awesome, love it!! :)

ActionRemix says ...
May 14, 2014 @ 12:06pm

Rolling around is surprisingly effective. I'm not supposed to dispose of the cookies, am I? ;)

TaleLore says ...
May 14, 2014 @ 2:40pm

Even above the surface was very fun and polished.

badlydrawnrod says ...
May 15, 2014 @ 7:52pm

Mmmm, cookies. Has a nice feel to it.

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.

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.
