Greener Grassby CogentInvalid - 48 Hour Compo Entry
(NOTE: You can play this game on Mac and Linux by downloading the source and running it with LOVE2D: www.love2d.org)
You have long looked up at the constantly-cycling portal above your world, wishing that you lived in one of the universes up there, particularly one that has a ground rather than the bottomless pit that you have spent your entire life precariously jumping on clouds and fish to avoid falling into. One day, you decide you've had enough of your life's never-ending platforming challenges, and climb up to the portal, jump through... and find yourself in a world nearly identical to the previous one, aside from the color of the sky.
You didn't go to all this effort just to wind up in a palette-swap reality, though, so you decide to keep climbing up to the portal again and again, trying your luck until you finally reach the one universe with a ground.
Can you make it to your ideal world, one with a study ground and soft grass? Of course you can; I believe in you.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
