Floating Connections

by Impmaster - 48 Hour Compo Entry

So, my game originally started off as a portal ripoff. Then I had an idea for a grand city in the sky which you explore. Then it turned out to be a really short puzzle game.

It's far prettier than my other games, mainly cause unity has graphics tools.

Just reach the end. The purple portals teleport you and the green ones swap the floors.

Liked the simple visuals with the thick platform lines and detailed sky, nice effort for a first 3D project. Think you get the feeling of being in the sky across.

Got stuck on a platform I couldn't figure out how to get out of without restarting.

Thanks for the comment! I had intended for the game to have like a huge tower before the player, so that you could go in all sorts of directions and get lost in the maze, with teleports and things everywhere. However, creating the puzzle took far longer than expected. At least you seemed to have liked the atmosphere.

A few of my friends are asking me what the point of the game was because they just went straight along the winning route and won. It was supposed to challenge your brain...

I think I got stuck on the same platform as Franklins Ghost - seemed a shame because I didn't know where I would be teleported to until I tried. Otherwise, a really cool little game. Nice mood and visuals - it would be interesting to see it expanded in the way you mentioned. Good work!

Gamebreaking bug when you teleport to a platform you can't continue from.

Hi there. Like the concept, found it hard to judge jumps without a visible character. Good job!

Hey all, I guess I misplaced one of the teleporters? If you have the time, feel free to just jump off the platform. You'll be teleported to the start. But tbh, there isn't much more you can do. It could be so much more fleshed out.

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.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

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.
