Pushed the counter off the castle. The timer is a solid object, and the text is over the char. Not a problem, just... weird, y'know.

And then when I went to the very top of the map, the stone on my head disappeared when it went out of the screen. EXCEPT IT DIDN'T, when I deposited the invisirock into the castle.

And then in the end I died and slid across the floor uncontrollably until I hit the edge and stopped.

10/10 would wat again

Hi there. Moved sprite around but nothing seemed to happen, Castle on screen and writing, nothing else. Chrome/W8.1 No sounds.

Laugh out loudly when I close my eye and wait soooo long time for the "beep" then open to find something block my way. Very funny!

That was really intriguing but I am not sure I really understood the game. Did try to close my eyes but stopped after a while. Instead of asking the player to close his eyes, maybe you should consider actually hiding display ?

An interesting idea. I ruined it for myself due to the fact that I was sure there would be some form of jump scare, so I kept my eyes open, but it still made me think about how much we rely on our vision, rather than our hearing. Furthermore, it made me think about how long it takes us to realize there is something wrong if something doesn't happen, even if we can't see it.
Well done.

Excellent idea, but I felt that things should have kicked in a bit sooner. Got bored after a few trips and only re-played after reading the comments!

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.
