T.T RIP good ol rob, fun game, pretty challenging. A bit on the sort side though. XD

Although a sweet sentiment, I don't think a quick jam game works that well as a memory, but it fits the theme well. It needs work on the spelling. I didn't know what it was about until right at the end, and such felt confused during the game.

Great game! I had put it together after the Jumanji level, Patch Adams level, and Hook level, that it was a tribute to Robin Williams! Very sweet tribute, just wish the game was longer! :)

Hey! Thanks for all the comments. Sorry about it being too short, it was our first Jam and we could only work on the weekend :(. We wanted players to find the tribute as a surprise around the third level, that is why the text doesn't explain it very well, it just talks about the "Link" so the player discovers who the link is and why :) Thanks al!!

Did you use copyrighted music?

I like the idea of two different worlds, but they are connected, couse you controll them with the same arrowkeys. Level design is also cool, nice work.

Interesting game, although screenshots made me to expect different kind of game at first.

You must sign in to comment.

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.
