It's pretty and the puzzles seem to be quite intelligent. I have completed maybe 10 of them, but it quickly becomes hard, as we don't have a good overall view of them (which I guess is intended).
Works flawlessly, music is quite nice.
I don't really see the connexion with the theme though.

I love the new style of 3D gameplay you used and great puzzles! I can easily see this being a new trend in puxle games :D

Oldschool 4-directions first person, awesomeee :D I like how there is no life limit and you keep spawning in same room until you solve it, otherwise it would get annoying fast.

It's nice, really
The puzzles are hard to solve, great
I like this kind of story telling, like in my game in fact ^^
Good job :)

solid game with well designed puzzles. wasn't super keen on the ending (unless I was missing something?) and could've been more involved with the theme. overall a great game though!

Excellent! One of the best I've played so far. I would just change the controls a little bit. Switch Q-A and E-D ;) And maybe add some shadows to help understand the position of flying cylinders.

It was a genuinely challenging and fun experience. Some of the puzzle took a few tried to figure out. The visual were simple but worked well.
I thought the ending was sad.

Got stuck someways in, clean and calming and clever. Loved it. Theme is a bit irrelevant, but hey! It's a great game.

I'm really bad at puzzle games, but I liked the style and the game. The audio is nice too.

I don't really like that kind of game but that was well done. Graphics and music are very nice !

I like it. It's like a turn-based Portal.

I wasn't sure if I had reached an end or if the last room had some secret way to escape that I didn't see. If it is the end, I wish the game would say so instead of letting me continue to play. If it isn't, well, I've failed to figure it out.

Beautiful aesthetics.

I assume the ending was the empty room?

Puzzles were pretty good, the only thing I would suggest is some indication of the timing of things other than guess and check - mostly because some things had different timings in different levels. Story was nice and helped with the framing of the puzzles.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
