Broken, freezes after a few seconds of gameplay on Firefox and Chrome.

I hereby commission you to redesign all websites loading animations. 5/7, would play this game for just the loading animation - great bonus that the gameplay is good too!

Lasers not visible on web with Chrome. Causes death without knowing why.

It is a cool entry but I didn't understand the perspective of the cube when going left and right.

Very cool, I'm really impressed this is a threejs game. The logo is extremely awesome, too.

Works fine for me on chrome, windows 7, i7-4790k with a GTX970

It's a confusing, hard to control, fun game. I enjoyed playing it, but the game was hard to control. This is the cardinal sin of a lot of games and making it a feature was fun, but frustrating due to often unfair deaths. Sorta like castlevania.

Nice loading transition thing, very eye catching. The menu should have a better indicator so you can see what option is selected, and you should be able to see your score before selecting submit score. Otherwise a fun game, would have been great put to music.

I had some strangeness in Chrome that made it unplayable. I wasn't able to jump more than a little hop, and the hitboxes were actually much larger than was displaying on the screen. The idea was very cool though and like others have commented, the loading screen is awesome!

Solid runner. I recommend making every play start with the slowly lowering ceiling as it almost immediately explains the mechanic, and gives you a moment to compose yourself before the game starts throwing death at you.

I like how the levels change, and the sense of urgency it creates in me while playing.

Worked for me on Firefox.

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.
