When hitting the sides, I get thrown back into the center of the screen.. Is that correct?
Psychedelic soundtrack... I agree.!

Well it was really easy to die when walls was deadly :)

If I had the chance to become a cat I wouldn't hesitate :)
One bug I noticed: when I died the first time, the player wasn't removed from the stage so there were two astronauts

Somehow can't get the score higher than 800 (Web version). Nice game anyhow, reminded me of Gravity movie ;)

The score stops going up after it reaches 800... I guess that means I set the top score.

New vision of falling down games.

hmm...I died a few times, but my old character did not disappear? or maybe because I kept pressing X because I didn't know what to do. Got a score of >3500, but several copies of me stayed in there

it was pretty fun but I didn't see what it had to do with the theme :/

Cool idea. Good job!

I tried to get further to see if there was something to do with the Connected Worlds theme apart from the initial story text later on, but there was nothing. After a while the gameplay gets a little dull, maybe some pick-ups (coins etc..) could help make it more fun. Kittens were a nice touch though!

Well, a bit too simple/easy/boring, and there seems to be no 'winning'. But I liked the theme lot, and the music was awesome :)

Quite simple and easy. But that's cool.

Pretty good for your first LD! Congrats on completing your game. I found the game too easy, personally. There weren't very many obstacles to avoid. Also, it would have been nice if the window were a bit bigger. I have a big monitor and the window the game played in was very small.

It was ok for a first try - good graphics and humor. Congratulations on having something finished! I hope next time you go for something a bit more ambitious, gameplay-wise.

Walls are supposed to be deadly?

Not much of a challenge, but still a functional game. I just steered into a piece of the space station pretty quickly, becoming a kitten was just too tempting :P.

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.
