Terrain Shifter

by AshkoreDracson - Jam Entry

You have to get to the end of every level, unfortunately you can't move, you can only bend the ground around you in order to do so, can you beat all 7 levels?

This game was made using Unity 5.1.4f1

If the graphics of the game look weird, your graphics card probably isn't modern enough, try to update your video pilots.
OS/X & Linux builds are untested.

Very fun and relaxing game! Enjoyed playing all the levels and the rise in difficulty

Simple graphics yet pretty, a music you don't get tired of easily and original mechanics. Great game!

The RMB opens the pop-up menu in my browser so I couldn't rotate the camera, but I could still play.

Very good concept. Very good choice of sounds. Good challange. One thing that I don't think is good is that the camera comes near in some situations that is very bad (near to walls).

Wow, that's pretty challenging! Fresh idea IMO and really nice take on theme! Thank you for native linux build too. For some reason I have my in-game cursor shifted from my mouse pointer to about 50px vertically, but that's minor issue.

I have now played and rated 323 games. And this game is one of my absolute faviot games for this LD. The idea is simple and super brialliant. The level design is overall great, but levels is a little too similar. The graphics is okay, but can be better, and the HUD need some work. The choice of music is great and it fits the game super well.

Give the game some more levels, update the graphics, and I will play your game again.

Well done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

amazing game! you must have know a lot about unity/opengl because those are some advanced physics you have there. Fits the theme very well too! :D

Great mechanics.

There were a few camera issues, especially on one level where a wall comes between the camera and the ball. Perhaps make the ball visible through terrain, or move the camera higher?

Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)

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.
