Nice game, could do with slightly less effects.
The effects were nice in the beginning, but they kept disrupting my view while cracking the 11+5 lock.
The mood was nice :D

I love the very stylized art style for this game, nice job!

You found a nice balance with the "puzzles", each step got me slightly confused for a while but I eventually managed to beat them all without issues.

On the downside, the music helps setting the mood but grows tiring after a while. Other than that (and the fact that I wanted more!) it was a pleasing experience, and certainly a very respectable entry for a solo work!

Thanks for your comment! I'm pleased to hear the puzzles confused you !

About the music I agree! and it's not looping properly :D

Nice idea ! Some visual effect are disturbing for resolving the puzzles :/
But it's still a good game ! Good job

Very interesting puzzles. Initial screen was hardest of all puzzles for me (Hehehe)!

I don't like to use fancy shaders everywhere, but I found it mimics my old CPC with failing green monitor my brother gave me decades ago and found it relevant;

I remember I played a game on this computer and with the low amount of colors I couldn't guess what was going on!

Anyway, gonna test all your games this week :)
Thank you for the constructive comments !

Interesting puzzles and very unique style, though toning down the effects could help just a little bit.

Apr 20, 2016 @ 10:11am

The game is stylized with nice arts. However the music is not that much soothing and distracting at some stage. I love the game play. Keep improving my dear friend :)

Well made, I liked the mood and the effects, though I passed half of the puzzles by luck :P Good job!

Apr 21, 2016 @ 5:27pm

Nice game couldn't solve one puzzle though it's all blurry and stuff :P. Still nicely done thanks for the entry

Hello, what puzzle was blurry ? did you use "fantastic" setting ?

Manou says ...
Apr 22, 2016 @ 1:58pm

I think the blurried textures do happen if your graphics card driver anisotropic filtering is off.

Apr 22, 2016 @ 5:17pm

One of the puzzles was just a blank screen, and the sound one never ended but it looked cool and the screen effects were funky

Manou says ...
Apr 22, 2016 @ 5:26pm

Hello :) What version did you play ?

Manou says ...
Apr 22, 2016 @ 5:29pm

Great entry you made there. I really enjoyed it and played until I finish it, some puzlles were super interesting. Also, the art style is unique and enhance the mood. Congrats !

neat short game but i hate these flashing things.

Voila une expérience plutôt weird - selon nos amis anglo-saxons. J'aime beaucoup cet esprit cyber-punk particulièrement décalé. Tu te consacres au visuel avant tout - et c'est un choix que je respecte. Une belle entrée. Bonne continuation Manou ++

Love the style, but the gameplay was a bit weird. I had no idea what I was doing, why it worked and why I was doing it.

Interesting puzzles, good use of the theme, and wonderfully old-school graphics. Wish it was longer!

I have to admit, I was on edge the entire time, fearing a jumpscare or the likes. I also couldn't help but be reminded of Undertale's "speech sounds" when the AI was talking, which certainly didn't help me feel less on-edge.

Apr 29, 2016 @ 6:25pm

Gorgeous! I love glitchy aesthetics, so this was right up my alley. Personally, I loved all the effects, and found the ambience to suit it excellently.

Apart from accidentally solving the rotating wheel puzzle, the only thing I might suggest changing is replacing the default cursor, since as it is it floats above all the effects.

Congratulations on an awesome game!

Manou says ...
Apr 29, 2016 @ 6:28pm

Thank you guys, yeah you're right about the cursor it distracts from the immersion/experience.

I got stuck on the sound sequence. I had played the sounds, and it even said 'Congratulations' but nothing happened after that.

Manou says ...

Hello what version did you play ?

Apr 30, 2016 @ 11:59am

Good aesthetic, although sometimes the graphics hinder the problem-solving (like the wheel: could not see the inscriptions properly)... felt it got over too quickly!

Apr 30, 2016 @ 12:08pm

I think I've finished every one of the puzzles by luck.

It's also hard to judge this game since the only version I can download is the postjam version.

Nice mood.

Hello post-jam version is the same as the original + fewer screen ratio. I deleted webgl version so the fixes I did for webgl were undo.

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.
