Drag the shape towards any cardinal direction to start.

This is an interactive sculpture, really just a toy. Sound is a huge part of the experience so don't play it deaf if you can help it. Unfortunately the seams are because the three.js geometry utilities aren't perfect...but mostly because I didn't have enough time to fix them.

By the power of HTML5, this game will run on anything: If your phone can handle it the experience is much better on a mobile browser.

Music created with LSDJ on a Gameboy Color.

ps. after watching some people play it, and after seeing feedback in the comments (shoutouts to you ponk), I made some slight adjustments to how the input is handled. If you absolutely must play the original version, bite me.

Nice ! The controls are interesting. Dragging out the shape feels good, but selecting a new shape is a bit counter-intuitive. I was trying to drag the shape to the center.
But anyway, cool toy :)

I found this very interesting and played it for far longer than I should have. I liked the ones with voices and colour the most.

Best experience so far.

Nice toy, good work on design & feel ! The audio evolving mechanics was cool too. However, a bit frustrated that the possibilities didn't seem that infinite after all.

Sound Design is incredible! I like how the sound is very part of the game. . . I love Chiptune, too. Great Work! I'd check the sync between motion and the beat of the music.

Overall very nice. Require a bit fiddeling to find out what you can do. Took me some time to realize that draging to different edges give different effects.

Kudos to also to work towards mobile. Not so much for it being mobile, but for going a bit outside the box of computer based web games and do things different. Lot of interesting possibilities there. In my entry I used geolocation to create a game to be played outdoor.

I actually still had a lot of fun with this for a non-game. Just trying to fidget around with the right shape was neat!

Awesome take on the theme. Fascinating to play around with!

My only grip was that some of the beats were cringy sound wise but otherwise it was a great experience.

One of the most original, on theme and fascinating entry so far! Kudos :)

While I wouldn't really call this a game, i did enjoy playing around with it. Very innovative take on the theme!

Congratulations! Great generative music+shape experience. :D

Apr 20, 2016 @ 11:53am

Nice! feels like making a minimalist music video of shapes within while I mess around the figures.

Yes, it's just a toy. But, what a good toy ! I spent time searching every shape I could find and trying to understand the way that the shape affects the music, so, it's a kind of exploration game, with an innovative concept. Good job. :)

May 6, 2016 @ 10:18pm

Pretty fun to play around with and great music. Best non-game entry perhaps :p.

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.
