Find the odd particle and keep it visible.

It can jump between levels and if hidden your score will drop.

Zero means game over.

I didn't understand it at first, but got it after a few tries. Cool concept!

This game broke my mind. Really cool idea, and the game itself looks beautiful. Awesome work!

Great game, but the game over is too quick and it hurt my eyes ^^.

This idea is very refreshing, although it took me a bit to get into it.

Interesting concept, took me a few tries to figure it out.

I had some issues understanding, but once I could see the object I had to keep visible, could beat it. Was a little dry, but the concept was very different that I did keep playing it.

Took me a while to understand how to play. Very original idea though and looks great.

I got the idea after several tries, but score is decreasing too fast. I think it should start decreasing only several seconds after particle moved, giving the player time to find it.

First challenge is the easiest. Second is like impossible for me and forget about the third :D

Nice unique concept you got there!

Hi there. Interesting idea, couldn't last more than 4 or 5 screens sliding past though. Shame no sounds.

Very nice little game. Hard to find out what to do first but when figured out, it makes a lot of fun.

I'm really not understanding the controls. moving the mouse doesn't seem to do anything, and clicking the mouse seems to just initiate the game over screen for me

Had to bust out my old 4k monitor to play this game. . .jk its a really cool game which could of used some really trippy music to make it more epic. But the dot was really hard to see in the inner screens, but good game though!

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.
