Great entry! Loved the moment of discovery when you see the arrow pointing back to the water and you're like 'ahhh-haah'. Not often that we see exploration based platformers in LD

Looked neat, but I got stuck. I couldn't get the flying one to work. I was mashing my keyboard hard and fast enough that I think it may need some recovery time, and I still couldn't get up there.

Yeah, you really have to mash that sucker but it is possible. It works best on a controller :b

You seriously made a mini-Metroidvania for Ludum Dare. That is awesome! I couldn't make it up the wall (can't tap fast enough, I guess!) but I enjoyed what I was able to play!

I don't understand what should I do until I see 'REALLY FAST' :D

I'm quite sad that despite mashing my keys like crazy I could never reach the top of this cliff. What's behind ? I want to know. Good exploration game.

Closed the tab by accident by pressing w and ctrl at the same time to hover faster.
The idea is fun but I was stuck with the hovering form.

Thanks for playing our game! What a weekend! Liked the clean art style and the exploration most. Though I searched way too long for the third "morph totem" ha.

I created a fixed windows version (Sorry mac guys I don't have access to the mac module right now). There was a bug that might have been keeping people from reaching the end.

Although it's quite simple, you can see that a lot of thought went in to this. Nice one!

Cool little exploration platform game. I can't say anything bad about it with the exception of the "smashing button" for fly. A solid entry. Congrats

Great game but after I won the game became very glitchy

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

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.
