About the game

It's simple: be fast and be accurate!
You have to guide the 10 different shapes through a tunnel so that they don't smash into walls. On your journey, walls will block your way and there's only one right passage. Rotate and scale your figure so that it fits through the hole in the wall, but also make sure you don't leave too much space in between the limits of figure and wall (because that will decrease your score).

Controls:

A/Left arrow: Rotate left
D/Right arrow: Rotate right
W/Up arrow: Scale up
S/Down arrow: Scale down
Numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 for the forms

PS4 Controller
Right Stick: Rotate
Left Stick: Scale
R1 and L1: switch between forms

XBox 360 Controller
Right Stick: Rotate
Left Stick: Scale
RB and LB: switch between forms

Team: Stefan Laubenberger, Lucien Ryter, Gianluca Scarciolla, Dominik Castelberg

Enjoy and please give feedback :)

Nice entry ! =)
I think 10 forms are a bit too much, and graphic quality of walls could be better, but i enjoyed this !

Good game! I think there is a little too much background visuals and it make seeing the actual game play elements quite difficult to see.

The music is nice, and the whole idea is good! My problem is the pulsing of the graphic, which is good on one side but it really makes my eyes go banana. I have a hard time to understand if i'm doing well or not and i die most of the times without much to achieve!
Overall you guys did well!

Very professional-looking. I just wish there was better contrast in the indicator in the bottom-left - it's hard to see that thin blue outline against a green background.

WOW for graphics!

The music is incredible and really immersive! It has too many forms to transform and you have no clue which ones are related to the numbers. But a complete game at the end.

Nice graphic and interesting idea, but a bit too hard.

Nice entry! I think there are too much shapes, maybe 3 or 4 max would work well

Cool entry, the amount of shapes to choose from and the scaling make it rather complex and challenging for such a simple concept.
Great work overall.

I'll try again later, I could honestly not tell if my input was being handled.

Thank you all for your suggestion, please play the arcade mode if the infinity is to hard

Very neat idea and good execution, but 10 forms is wayyyyy too many. The most unique entities most people can keep in active memory is about 7, which is still pushing it for fast paced games. Still I really like your core concept!

Effects vere 'a bit' trippy, but nice game overall.

Great game, though graphics made the game slow and a bit difficult to play. Love the music! The game crashed while trying to restart so not too sure what that was about, but either way, this was a fun game to play with listening to some good tunes and watching some awesome visuals :)

Interesting concept, love the audio. That pulsating effect really threw me off after a while, would be awesome of it pulsed to the sound of the beat. Interface could also use some work to match the space theme. Good job overall.

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.
