It WILL load into the pinky box. This new HTML5 version of Unity does not loading message... bad

When I am through the tutorial, and the game was supposed to start, I can't do anything. But it looks great, and the story great.

First of all, thanks for the complements.

HEHE the jam version has a few bugs. Sometimes it do not load correctly.

After the tutorial the game does not appear to work.

Once it loaded and I got through the tutorial, I tried clicking everywhere, the only thing which seemed to do anything was the pause button. The cutscene was good though, I don't think I've seen any other LD game put as much effort into one.

I liked the introduction and cutscene. The tutorial was a little hard for me to follow, and the game itself was really hard. XD I can see myself spending hours trying to figure everything out. I think the text font was a little hard to read, which might have contributed to the confusion. Great work overall. :)

@TackoramaLtd and @Slashee the Cow: you were right! After a week, i just found a master bug that was not loading the game. ehehe FIXED (uploading in minutes)

1*thanks for the feedback
2* the game is hard, but managed to win a couple of times. I will invest in the better and interactive tutorial to make it easier.
3* I might change the fonts in a post jam version, more polished. Indeed it is a bit too dense and hard to read

Very confusing, and often seems like it's stuck (it's completely non-obvious what the game expects you to do next). On the other hand, the game rules are quite innovative.

Also, this font is unreadable.

@ChaosCult: thanks :P Let's say that i invest a bit too much time into the intro than explaining the game mechanics :P

A post jam version might clarify things a bit. ;)

The story and atmosphere were nice, but after I click on the first tile I couldn't get anything else to happen.

Aug 28, 2015 @ 8:28am

spend more time in the game's introduction, which in the game itself :S.

@Paul Sinnett: just uploaded a fix (i hope).

Most (if not all) commands in the game is by DRAGGING although...

The game is pretty moody and innovative. I'd love to see more feedback for the user when I click (or misclick). I often got confused on what to do next and since this is a jam I was not sure if I was facing a bug or expected behavior.

Aug 28, 2015 @ 8:44am

You've clearly put an awful lot of effort into this entry! It took me a couple of goes to work out what was going on and what the rules were. It's a bit confusing, but a good entry once you get the hang of it.

Was fun to play. Liked the style. Sadly its really hard and i got an exception when i defeated an enemy with a blue tile. Nevertheless a nice entry. Thanks!

An exception has occured, but exception handling has been disabled in this build. If you are the developer of this content, enable exceptions in your project's WebGL player settings to be able to catch the exception or see the stack trace.

When I dragged a blue one to the bin.

I think I got the hang of it after a while but there's still some parts I didn't understand. But what you've got is quite fun. Good job!

Very cute artsyle. I'm also stuck after the tutorial.

After restarting it a few times I finally made some progress but never won. Great characters and animation/art, interesting gameplay.

It's allowed in ludum dare rules to fix bugs without adding features if you want. For example if you skip tutorial or restart the game without reloading the page, you sometimes cannot make a move at all!

Game looks really good. Loved the opening cinematic and the tutorial. The game seems very thought out with the rules. Unfortunately it's a shame that half the time the game just doesn't work at all :( I've reloaded multiple times and I still have yet for it to work for me.

Hard game, also on my pc web build was very laggy.

The gameconcept is really difficult to understand. The tutorial is great, but even with it its still a complex game :D After a while I got the concept almost (but still not completely) and I think its good, you just need some more feedback to the player

Bruno Massa says ...

THANKS for the feedback. Bad or good, I appreciate. It will be listened and considered. I plan to build a post jam version THIS FRIDAY NIGHT with much better gameplay, it is a promisse.

Good concept. Really liked the graphics and the cubes. I couldn't finish the game though, because of an exception, but it was fun and inventive.

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 ( 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.
