Great concept. I really like it. Just wondering what the real plot is :) But as a time waster it does the job.

Interesting concept.

Groovy, would have loved there to be some actual picture in there. Assuming you got a semi-solid quadtree structure out of this, or have one lying around, haha.

A mute button would be nice since the music loop is not completely seamless. It is catchy otherwise.

I finished with 0:42 left. :P Funny idea.

Very nice use of a quad tree ;) high marks in theme and innovation for imaginative use of the theme!

5 minutes to wiggle your mouse over every pixel isn't exactly fun...
Would work better as a quad tree tutorial :P

It's a neat idea, I like the fractal stylings going on. Its quite nice as just as visual plaything more than an actual game.

So that's more like painting tool than the game?

Pretty! Great interpretation of the theme!

Very interesting idea, although really difficult to light up all the mini screens on time..I personally cant do better than 15k.

I don't really see much fun this rather than a time killer; it was fun at the beginning but continue doing the same thing for 5 minutes may cause a great decline in interest.

And I thought you will discover some painting when light up most of the screens, :D

It's a nice idea to start a game, but after the first two minutes, my hand it feels more tiring than fun. I would suggest working up the idea a bit more, for example: rewarding the player for certain patterns, powerups which let you paint better, maybe a bit of sound effects... Keep going! :)

Woo 6 seconds left. It's pretty but a little simple.

I couldn't stop painting and now my eyes are all boogly! 31 seconds remaining :)

A nice time waster, I like the different colors each square gets. Has a real artistic feel to it. Good job!

The concept is pretty unique, but the game tends to be a little boring at some point.
Good job!

Woah! Where did time go?

Yeah, like others have said, would have liked an img to be what I was revealing.

Dude, loop your background music better next time (it's too short, and there's an obvious discontinuity when it loops).

The game drags on for a bit too long, as well - a much shorter time, maybe 2 minutes, would probably make this more fun (since then it'd be a matter of how many mini-screens you can manage to make before the timer expires).

Wow, I just spent 10 minutes dividing a square into 16384 smaller ones. But somehow, I don't feel like I wasted time. Filling in the holes is oddly satisfying, and the colors and the music help a lot. I guess this was thought as a silly joke (I hope so...), but if there was actually some strategy to it or some kind of counteracting force and not just a timer, this could be quite interesting.

Great concept, but I couldn't see the point of it :D

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
