Ergo Syskevis

by AkirAssasin - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You are an archeologist/scientist that found a puzzling ancient device with links to other worlds. What will you do? Line up a whole bunch of test subjects and use it on them, of course!

The pictures are slightly outdated.

(BTW, "ergo syskevis" means "device project" in Greek. I think so)

I'll add a button to speed up the warping process. Thanks!

Nice! I like how it's sort of arcane to try and figure out how it works, and then it slowly starts to make sense!

Cool idea. Sometimes I clicked on a number and it didn't change. (Is there a rate limit or is the hit box a bit small?) In combination with the time limit this felt slightly frustrating.

This was hilarious. Great job!

I really liked it! It's simple but very polished.

I used mouseClicked() instead of mousePressed(), so you might want to press and release on the number.

Original stuff, just a point, the text is blurry on retina screen =/ (mac pro retina chrome)

Chrome seems to work fine, probably because of retina. Tested on Mac Air 2012 Chrome and Safari.

That was really cool, might make more sense with shapes, I did find myself guessing rather than solving. I liked the humor, when none of the numbers were green... good one.

Ovreall not a bad concept, i like the idea behind it and its idea has great concept, simple easy to play.

A simple yet effective package. I liked the atmosphere and the report at the end is pretty funny. I came close to winning but one of the digits wasn't green and brain didn't function :/

I really like the concept. It the obscure nature of the way the numbers change does a great job of making the machine feel "other worldly". Well done!

Haha really interesting idea. Nice to see a javascript game. I died/lost body parts in alternate worlds about 20 times. I like it but can't figure out how to win. I even turned all the digits green and still died/lost my head in a parallel world? Good job :)

The atmosphere reminded me a little of the SCP Foundation. I do not know if there is more levels, because I failed 5 times in a row. If there is, then I think the first level should be easier. Nonetheless, good job!

hbocao, it's randomly generated haha

snowconesolid, you are meant to send the person to the parallel world.

Nifty little puzzle game! Sometimes it was difficult to get the numbers to change when I clicked. Maybe increase their click area?

This reminds me of a puzzle from a Resident Evil DS actually. Nice work.

intriguing game, very cool

I liked the concept once I figured it out. The puzzle aspect could use a little bit of meat... but I don't know what. Maybe some indication of which numbers affect which besides trying to simply remember it all. A graphical representation of the body that you're teleporting would also go a long way of course. Still, certainly innovative!

Hey, look at that, I won! :D

Congratulations on a successful first LD. Solid offering, and a funny idea. :)

Sep 5, 2014 @ 11:58pm

That was funny. I got almost completely teleported, except for one hand, but who needs that? Nice work!

Interesting concept

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.
