Nice idea.
And good trick for the rule of one screen ;)
It was funny

very clever. I like the idea of having to navigate an environment that shifts based on judge interest, but it can be very tricky to know where a judges screen portion will land until it actually shows up, which leads to some frustration. Perhaps having everything be at the same perspective would be easier for the player, and layers that are no longer solid could become semi-transparent.

Great story! But the first level is too hard.

Really great take on the theme, Great game, but I think the 3D effect was a little offsetting and unnecessary, and just kind of made the platforms look weird.

Cool concept, a little bit hard to get hang of though. I like that you've put effort to the story.

Doesn't need to be 3D, learn 2D, it'll make your life easier. Also nice mechanic, make a full game out of it please!

Hi there. Interesting idea, but am bad at playing platformers at the best of times, this was a nightmare! Got first 3 flags after judging started... but got too much looking at the upcoming changes and tracking position. Good job as far as I could get though!

This was a really cute idea! Nice take on the theme, well done!

Fantastic! Great idea, explored in a multitude of ways, with great personality injected throughout. I think a good sound track and sfx would go along way here- especially if you link it to the change of the 'screens'.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
