The zip doesn't work. "The compressed (zipped) folder is empty. Before you can extract files, you must copy files to this compressed (zipped) folder." Despite this, it says it's 11.2 MB. Not sure what's going on there.

I had to use 7-zip to manually extract the game. Maybe upload the files to

When I start the game and just see black, the QE buttons, R to restart, and the Alpha number. Controls are unresponsive. Music sounds nice though!

I tried to play this, and your windows build appeared to be a web build. I wasn't able to play it in the end.

Doesn't work for me. Since it's Unity, there's a few things you could do to fix it:
1) Export Windows, Mac, and Linux builds and have zips for those
2) Rather than zipping up the WebGL build you made, just put it as is on Dropbox or a web server somewhere. You can include a link to the index.html, and even have it appear in the iFrame on this page so people don't have to download it.

Unfortunately the web build doesn't do anything but play music. :(

I'm having the same problem as SgtBursk - I can unzip using 7zip, but when I run index.html in Firefox the screen is black other than the UI.

Apr 19, 2016 @ 1:54am

Since this is a web build, try uploading it to

Also, the game did not run for me.

I also needed to open the zip with 7-Zip.

The game worked for me but I ended up outside the level and could not get back in. Also, nobody like the stuff I made!!! Very cool concept though... we all have days where we want to through stuff against the wall!!! Nice job!

Apr 19, 2016 @ 3:46am

I cant unzip the file either, sorry.

It seems to work now!

Nice take on the theme and fun concept. I like the sprite and animation too.

Don't think that I can rate you on 'Overall' though, as it's not a game =)

Weird, as I move to the right the camera also moves upwards. This makes it impossible to see anything after just a bit...
Perhaps you are using the x coordinate for both axes when calculating the camera position? I would have loved to actually play this game since what I could see looks rather nice.

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

Nice game. Although I had a problem with the camera.

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.
