[UPDATED 25-08-14] i pushed a new linux version, more compatible i hope, now it uses all the libraries of the standard blender distribution, before was linked against archlinux version, btw is x86_64, if anybody wants a i686 version, please ask.
Later i'll make a macosx version.

[UPDATED2 25-08-14]
fixed the last upload of linux build.. thanks to uberscientist for the report.


Tools:
* blender(using the game engine)
* gimp (to draw the background texture)
* audiosauna studio, to create the music

It's the first "real" thing i made on a 3D engine.


TODO:
* fix camera rotation when gravity changes(jump to other planet)
* etc..

Very playful in looks, music, and interaction. I really like the exploration of the feeling of jumping to other space objects. Mouse input was stuttering, (ignoring input entirely alternating every half second or so) which made looking around laborious and probably compromised the intended feel a lot. Good Job!

I felt I'm in space when I jump. I really like the feeling this game brings. If you improve the camera work, it will be more enjoyable I think!!

thanks for the comments!
@elliottd i think the stuttering is related to the windows build :/, i'll try to test on a windows box..

So, is there a goal? Or just happily jumping around?

Pretty cool man, I dig the background texture and general color choices.

Thanks for the comment on my game (the killing minecraft babies one lol) -- I first played it from the .blend file which worked great, love the glowy bloom effect and jumping between gravity systems. However, just to test I tried the linux build and had issues. The console spit out this: http://pastebin.com/NG9GDPww and the screen showed up like this: https://i.imgur.com/IzJE95Z.png -- thanks again, the BGE is pretty awesome :)

It's pretty chill, although the gravity switch is pretty sudden.

I loved the music! Relaxing and great ambient feeling as I was floating around space jumping from planet to planet! Nice entry, good job!

Also our Linux build is up as you requested :)

The effect of the gravity flip was a bit sudden and jerky, and it took me a bit to figure out what had happened. Not much content, but it was overall fairly relaxing. Didn't care for the music though. Wasn't sure if shooting red cubes was supposed to do anything.

Nice entry, I could see this turning into a nice mechanic for a larger game. (Also, thanks for the reminder about Linux builds!)

Nice and relaxing. I really liked the visuals and just jumping around. I got stuck in between two planets after a couple minutes though :P.

Wow, super relaxing. Love the theremin-like music. Quite well done!

Love this sort of thing, lovely little exploration game. I did have a few issues with the camera not looking the right way though.

Always loved this kind of jumping mechanic. Good job.

Nice mood! Very relaxing indeed =)

Some little improvement in the camera and you will have a solid experience! Good job!

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.
