Hello fellow Stencyler!

Your trees are real neat - the square ones are pretty cool.

I really really like the echo effect after you've performed the correct sequence.

The door would've looked much better if you could've built up a rockwall/cave for it to be sat into.

Whilst I'd suggest more help with playing the game, I got the hang of it quick thanks to the visual feedback you had in place when you pushed wasd over the ground pads.

Thanks for making this game!

nailed it : http://prntscr.com/5eo07f

this is a great idea to implement in a bigger game, like an old school 16 bit rpg.

the echo is cool !

also the game screen is way to big for laptops and can't be resized

Great game. With more content it could be splendid, very promising mechanism for a puzzle game!

Sound effect deserve a 5 star :D

Figuring out the patterns to light the torches was nice, but I was kind of expecting that I'd need to remember the patterns when I got back to the door.

Hi there. Small point, did not size dynamically to fit screen space available... which was a pain! (Chrome/W8.1). Liked the French ending... Nice soft flute sounds. Like the growing earthquakes. Actual puzzle was fairly simple, would have liked several levels (but to fit on a normal sized screen!). Good job!

I only see three of the devices, and therefore can not activate the 4th torch.

Thanks for all the feedback so far! I'm updating and tweaking a post-compo version and trying to look into an artist/composer.

Nice job! I like the sequence typing mechanic; it feels sort of like playing Simon. The trees look great, but I think the door would look better if it was part of something, such as a fortress or a cave.

Definitely playable and fun...Not all that much to it, though. It's great to see games that involve music, I just wish it were longer or something! Good job, though. ;)

Neat concept with much potential, I liked it! It looks really nice as well, the sound-based puzzles are a great idea

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.
