Sometimes its very hard to see where the character is or where the flag is.

This is really nice. It found myself me moving my head upside down to understand my position. Great idea, good job!

It's something I haven't seen before, but the camera seemed almost hostile to my progress, and there were quite a few situations where my character was not going where he should, or going where he shouldn't. Fun nontheless.

Other than the camera issue, I thought the game was very fun :)

I liked the game but it seemed a little limited. The strongest part of the game was the art.

GG :)

Wow impressive concept ! However, being able to rotate the cube with the mouse would be really great

It's hard to see which way the cube is spinning since there is no rotation animation.

As people already said, better camera would be nice, lost the dude hehe. Sweet concept though!

Cool idea, but it was difficult to see what was going on. Also, sometimes I couldn't walk around an unobstructed corner to another side of the cube. Not sure what was going on.

Good idea, but it would be nice to have the ability to rotate camera

Nice idea, got totally lost on moving the camera though. Also the human model didn't seem to fit the minecraft aesthetic you were going for.

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.
