The Legend of Glowing Balls

by Hemuuuli - Jam Entry


Take your time and be careful.

Spamming attacks won't do any good, if you miss take a step back and let your stamina refill.

Your goal is to get three glowing orbs onto a orb holder in the central room.

Got killed by spiders. Would play again.

The game is amazingly polished for 72 hours. I especially liked the more slow paced combat system.

The only thing i can say is: The bigger the team the bigger the game.

It's fun, good mechanical and very good graphics, the combat is quite difficult and even the atmosphere is terrifying

Fantastic atmosphere! The combat seems a little too tricky, but I guess it probably just takes a while to get used to. The audio and graphics are the best part, they really help to create a really good mood.

Moooood! Mood is awesome!

A very impressive quantity and quality of content for a 3 day game. I got lost a lot though and really didn't care for the combat, since even the spiders take like five hits (or roughly a minute).

Then I discovered that you can just walk slowly around enemies, and finished the game with 100% health and six enemies trailing me. Sort of a game breaker, but I'm super glad I didn't have to spend ten minutes slowly whacking and backing away. Also I don't really see how the theme applies.

Low marks for fun, super high marks for content.

Very solid Jam Entry, nice, almost "Oblivion" visuals. You, people, must publish it on Steam or Desura, no jokes. It's awesome game, mood deserve more than 5 stars.

Impressive! There were many areas of polish that I'd never expect from a jam game! Those creatures spooked me haha.

Hi. unfortunately crashes if you press TAB for VR then TAB again. Not rated. "Fatal content error has been detected" displayed by Unity container after about 10 seconds.

You must sign in to comment.

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.
