by Porcus_Pie - Compo Entry

An infinite runner where you can turn into a bird and glide, as well as skate along the ground

I only had around 11 hours to work on this, so I didn't have time for music or to polish it as much as I hoped

Edit - I'm planning on doing a post compo. Other than music, score display and other fixes, what should I add?

Fun concept! Transforming for abilities was cool (and not something I've seen in other endless runners!), and there was something just so so cool about grinding UP A RAIL in an an endless runner. Fun stuff.

Pretty good for a day's work! I agree that the grinding was pretty cool.

Good job. Loosing sight of the ground felt scary.

Very cool concept and very fun to play. Nice!

Very nice work for one day, and I appreciate the spritework. Grinding is fun too, but I somehow keep getting confused between the hold to glide/press to jump and the hold to slide. I just kept pressing x after grinding to jump...

I really liked the concept and always enjoyed endless runners. The graphics look nice too. I would have just implemented a score system (unless I missed it).

For 11 hours work this is a good job, would have loved to see what you could have created with more!

Considering the time you worked on it, it's pretty good, the gameplay is spot on and the grinding rails are fun, i really liked the fact that the platforms were made in 3D it somehow adds to the look of the game :)

It's nice. A post-Compo would be great

Looks nice, but how do I play? I press space and then I just stuck in this position:

There is an instructions text file, just under the download link. Space is only used to start, whilst z and x are used to play

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.
