Cool concept and well implemented, but damn it is difficult! Nice job :)

Cool! Love the 3D. Very difficult :c

Huh! I think I might understand what's being displayed, but I can't quite figure out the controls. I think it moves way too fast to be playable, even on "Too Easy".

The death sound effect is also amazingly loud! Maybe it has to do with the nature of the sound--when I have my volume low enough to bear it, I can't hear anything else.

Neat idea, and it seems like a good way to control it.

I found it hard to play as well. I didn't seem to grow... I like the box effect.

What a crazy way to do a 3D snake! That was really cool though. I didn't find it that difficult once I got the hang of it on Too Easy, but the other difficulties were a bit much fore me haha.

Holy craptacular. That was pretty cool to try, but would take a while to master. Nice game. Oh and Blockout would be right up your alley.

Mindbending concept, I don't have enough brain !

Your game broke my brain!

Dec 8, 2014 @ 6:26pm

Haha my brain hurts! But that was a lot of fun, love the idea!

Nice! Quite hard to get into it.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:31pm

Wow, neat idea! Difficult for someone like me with bad coordination, but very intriguing. Also dig the mood and music

I love this concept. Now do it with 4d -> 3d huhuhuhu :D

Some mind bending stuff there but great :) Originally thought it would be about Solid Snake dying...

4D Snakkke - my brain exploded. Really really nice game!

Well done! Mindfuckery of the highest level :D

I like how the cubes aren't placed perfectly in line.

quite challenging. i managed to score 4000. the 3D makes the sense of being trapped much more vivid than 2D snake. and that creates mood.

That broke my brain for a bit. Love it.

Once it clicked how the movement works, that was really nice to play.

Great idea and good execution! This is quite the mind bending game! Very challenging and it works really well. Great job!

This is way too hard to even play.

To be honest, I wasn't even able to catch more than 1 blue dot before my brain melt through my ears. That's definitely the craziest snake I've ever play :D

And the most original too.

Way too hard for my brain after 3 days of LD ^^
Great job nonetheless

Well made!

Wow! What an amazing game! Starting by the music, so intriguing! And then the gameplay, fantastic idea! The graphics are also very well done! Congrats!
And thanks for sharing the link of Circuli! Awesome tool!

Really cool idea, although its really difficult to get my head around it. Very polished presentation as well. Nice job!

my brain
cannot
handle
all
these
dimensions

but great idea, I think it's pretty great (even though it's not the type of game I would normally be even... able to play).

Wow! My friend and I came up with an idea very similar to this one, but we never actually followed through to create it. Very cool to see it in action! Very nice, good job! Very innovative

Hi there. Like the idea, but found it way too difficult even on easiest setting. Great sounds and look & feel. Good job!

Wow. Really interesting mechanic, loved the use of the third dimension here, although I think maybe a transparent representation of it in 3D space may have helped, although maybe that would just reduce the difficulty. Changing difficulty didn't really actually affect the difficulty much, since the speed wasn't really the main problem here, but maybe my spatial is just bad. Music is minimal but fits well.
The only other improvement I can think of is online highscores could be nice here.

The only 'difficulty' with this game is the audio :p. I really enjoy working out how to interpret games like this. Lovely, original idea, had lots of fun.

It's really difficult, it's a cool idea that makes my brain hurt :)

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.
