I have the same problem... But I think I know the solution. Try using another web browser. Chrome doesn't seem to like unity...

If you're having trouble with the play button in chrome please either use another browser or allow the plugin but reload the page, that seems to do the trick

I like the mission-style but got stuck on the "science experiment" level. This RPM thing is fun :)

Nice one, although some more explanation at the beginning would help. (I'm a moron, didn't know what I'm supposed to do for a while ;))

Quite fun and more challenging than seems at first. Could use some visual effect when colliding / loosing population.

Tricky to play... physics nice. Managed to 'dock' with Sun for first mission but failed second - quite harsh you can't retry just moves you on ;( Original and fun.

It's the three legged race of planets! Cool little idea, good physics. Hard but you only blame yourself.

Very neat and original idea, IMO. It was well executed. Even if the graphics were very minimal, the gameplay was fun.

Great take on the theme and neat physics. I personally found it very challenging to get the worlds to spin. Good job!

Very cool idea! The humour was a nice touch. And it worked very good as multiplayer, I played it with my partner. My hand still hurts from the first 40 RPM-mission. :)

Neat idea, well executed - fun to play with a friend! Nice!

Interesting, fun, and innovative mechanic. Comically literal use of the theme. I could see you working this into a real, complete game; and it might not work too bad as one. That being said, though, the compo version is a bit lacking. Still fun to play around with, but lacking.

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.
