Really good idea. Of course, with more time I know that you have the skill to do something more interesting, but this "trailer" is good. I like some shaders which you have used. I will try soon the alternative exit. Thank you ++

Awesome. Idea and overall.
But too short...

Hilarious! Great use of theme. Played twice to get both endings.

A bit short but well done, I like the "Morpheus" character.

Haha, nice game. I played both endings and I have to say I like the "Left one" more. I even turned back hoping to see something running to me!

Dec 9, 2014 @ 1:01am

Haha! I had a nice laugh, really good idea!

This game was awesome. I was laughing the entire time very Octodad like feeling I got from it. The graphics weren't the best but it was pretty fun overall. Wish it was longer.

Hah. I like the homage to Return of the King. It would have been nice to have more things to interact with, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Good job!

Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:09am

Great job, but it has nothing to do with the jam's theme. You could make an effort... Anyway, I like your story.

Neat little game, clever twist on the theme. I approve. :)

Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:32am

The "3D" part made me chuckle. Gotta love them references, too.

Great idea. I wish it was a bit longer. I did play twice to see both sides. Glad you added the ability to move through faster than the audio/visual cues (which were well done by the way).

Dec 9, 2014 @ 4:19am

Nice. I really like your take on the theme. Played through it twice for the alternate path. Pretty funny stuff!

Loved it. Would like to see more!

It's funny, but a bit short for a jam game, I like the matrix reference in it too.

I loved the idea of going into the screen in a movie theatre like that. What happened beyond wasn't as interesting (although kind of reminded me of Stanley Parable as a way) but I feel this is definitely a gripping premise that you can build on!

Cool use of the theme! Nice graphics and movie references. Simple but clever :) Going back in to experience the other ending :D

I liked it, it took me a while too realize that something open behind the floating blue stuff by the way. The art is nice, and the reference fun!

Wow
that was a really fun experience!
Great game!

Dec 9, 2014 @ 6:14pm

Too short, but great innovation and the best take on the theme I've seen so far.

No... my precious... i mean, my popcorn. :D

Quite an intriguing beginning, really like the idea. Too bad that it is so short.

Nice lighting effects! And nice use of the theme! :D

Dec 11, 2014 @ 7:42am

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.
