The Potion

by Charimation - Jam Entry

A super short and simple object sorting game created in 10-12 hours for the Game Jam :)

Unfortunately my weekend was packed and I'm without a PC tommorow, so I wasn't able to spend as much time on this as I might've liked. It's a very simple, very short game and still a little rough around the edges. But finished and playable!

I loved participating in LD29 so much, I figured I'd join this time too, even if it's only for half a day.
I spent a lot more time with trial and error during this jam, than the last and even though I wasn't able to participate for as long, I feel like I've really learned a lot this time.

Either way, my second Ludum Dare is complete! I hope you enjoy :)

Indeed quite short, but still a great job for 10-12 hours of work!

Great graphics!

Good concept. Could be a bit confusing first time seeing the hints (some hint might not be as clear as you thought), and a bit boring when you have seen all of the hints. A nice job for short work!

was a fun little game, a bit short but that's understandable. Art is very nice. Great work for such a short amount of work.

Hi there. Sorry not played or rated yet as web link doesn't play in browser - it asks for permissions in a popup.

Very unique graphical style. Even more so in the context of LD, where a lot of stuff looks similar (due to time constraints of course). Great job!

Running rescue right now, so I can't write a long comment, but this game was excellent!

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.
