Cool fun game. I like the "starrtt" voice.
Music is nice to listen to.

Gameplay is solid, slow enough that you can morph in time, but still twitchy and fine-controlled when going through gaps. A little variation in the track would have been nice, but otherwise, nice entry!

Couldn't play the game because it froze and crashed my graphics card :(

Sorry Dooskington! What platform? The web player or the standalone? both?

Cool little game. The sideways acceleration for moving the thingy could've been a little more sensitive. The film effect was cool, at first look the game looked like it was played on top of an full motion video :D

One thing I noticed was that all the other forms were shaped exactly like the hole in the wall except the red one :D

Hah that's a fun little game. I like the audio for it--it's quiet suiting, though I'd love for there to be more of it. My only gripe is I wish the collision was a little more forgiving (or the holes were a tad larger). It could be an issue with the sort of unnatural acceleration/deceleration (do shapes have a natural was to do that?), but still a neat game!

Really liked this. It took some effort to improve at (it was not overly easy--a good thing), but it made me interested in getting better at it! Nice challenge. The short music loop was very decent as well. I also liked the intermittent pep talk. My only gripe is that I seemed to hit the far edge as I made it through. Maybe that is design, but I would tentatively offer that just a tad bit more edge forgiveness would add to playability. That said, the high pressure and wondering if you are one pixel off your shot through the opening adds to the fun as well, so...

Really fun! I wish there was more progression but I dug the aesthetic.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
