The linking of dimensions was confusing at first, but I enjoyed thinking about it and exploring the maze. In my opinion, it could do with a more complex maze with more clues as to where to go or other obstacles, but it is a good concept that I would like to see explored further :)

This looked anxiety inducing once I realise how the world switching mechanic worked, But proved to be satisfyingly solvable. More levels would be awesome. Felt good to play and the sounds were well picked.

I like how the walls are drawn. They remind me of Zelda on the Super Nintendo. Great interpretation of the theme.

Interesting take on the theme, though I wish the transitions weren't so instantaneous, or the colors weren't so bright, because it hurt my eyes to switch between them so quickly when going through doors.

Hi there. Interesting idea, completed maze fairly easily. More levels and things in the maze to fight would be good next steps. Good job!

You should indicate more clearly the bounds existing between doors.

Pretty clever maze idea actually, would fit nicely as a mechanic in a larger game.

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.
