Glu is a game about... well... glue! Or rather, gluing cubes together to form larger and larger shapes, moving around in weird ways, trying not to get sliced in half by laser beams, and getting seasick after teleportation.
Use the arrow keys to move around
Hold space to get a view from above
Get to the green blocks and don't give up!
That's about it ;)

Overall this game is very good. The audio gets kind of repetitive after the first few levels but I like the idea of playing one note of the song after every move.

This game is very well designed with an interesting mechanic.
And the audio is absolutely amazing :D

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

Really nice game :) I love the graphics, the particle effects look awesome. I encountered a bug though. as I righted myself in preparation to jump the last horizontal laser in the level in your first picture, i was forced backwards one square. This happened several times. The bug is also re-creatable on the same level by just trying to do the first bit as fast as possible and will happen just before the second corner after you glue the first block to yourself. Hope that's clear enough to work with.

Wow, you got a great concept here. Would totally buy it on tablet or smartphone.

Nice puzzler! Some of it reminds me of portal, with the lasers and cubes/redirections. Clever!

Combining the fun of videogames with the horror of piano lessons.

I sure do wish I were smart enough to beat hell.

Wow that was an awesome little game. I could totally see myself playing it as an actual released title. You could take it really far, as long as you made sure to balance the puzzle's curve a little.

Also I loved the use of Fur Elise in it. I'll have it stuck in my head for the rest of the night :)

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.
