I was invested in C and his/her story

Awesome idea! If I had one complaint, it would be that the controls are a bit slidey.

This game was a little too hard for me. Otherwise, really good interpretation of the theme, and I really like the homage to assembly. Good job! :)

Simple, funny and great! I like what happens when you get close to the edge of the screen.

Awesome compo! I litterally loled at the ending. Very clever project based on a really simple idea. This game is litterally worth the effort of climbing to the top!

const unsigned int OVERALL_RATING = EXCELLENT;
const unsigned char BELONGS_TO = Category.FAVORITE;
const bool WISH_WAS_LONGER = TRUE;

Cool idea and great implementation! There could be a hotkey to skip the intro too.

It's a fun idea, and it plays well...mostly. After a while it just kind of got frustrating trying to climb up, falling down again...The controls don't seem as responsive as I'd like them for this kind of platformer. It's hard to maneuver while in the air. But hey, it's a good idea!

I love how beautifully you wrapped up such a simple idea.
Nice job!
Controls are fine for me btw.

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.
