feels really airtight for something you started Saturday night! I definitely feel this way in my yoga practice. I kinda wobble around the pose until its okay to stop & move on to the next thing.

Really digging this, well done. Never felt like it was all over and I couldn't get into the proper state after messing up.

I'm scared of yoga now.

I was initially very intimidated by all the controls, but once I started playing I picked it up quickly! Also at first I thought I had to be on the near/on the silhouette, so I was relieved when I just had to match to pose to get it to continue.

Nice! That's an innovative control scheme, but I found it very hard. I coudn't do the split for the second pose, despite trying for several minutes :-/ I loved to fly around, next time you could make a spiderman/superhero game or something :)

Oh my! This is so funny!! Some poses are veeeery hard but it's a lot of fun! :)

Hilarious. Loved holding Space+N+V and being Spider-Man.

It's very forgiving, which is nice. I always felt like I could lift myself up and recover. I only wish there was a "reset pose" button.

Well fun to play as a local multi-player game with one person controlling half of the body.

Reminds me of QWOP.

The tired cat pose was too much for me. Liked the idea. It is really challenging sometimes...

Woaaaaaaaah this is an amazing idea, and the fact that you made it in 24 hours drives me crazy.
This is very cool and original!

Fantastic style, really well-thought out, and the posing works just right. 24h? Amazing! It looks very polished. I think a version where you had other people also trying to match the pose would be great (they could be different colours on your screen so everyone else can laugh at what people create)!

Very funny, and a good bit of fun to play! I think removing the background music and sticking with the sounds might have been better; it wasn't bad music, but the loop was very short, and it was starting to bother me a bit by the end. Loved the papercraft-looking solid color art style. Really appreciated the Spacebar as a "Stand Up/Reset" button too; posing the character had all the fun of QWOP or Toribash, but minimized the frustrations of being stuck in a pose you couldn't figure out how to escape from. Very well done, and in such a short time span!

Thanks for putting this together, and for sharing it with everyone.

Lol! Omg that was so funny... And difficult! It was so hard, but felt so good to get into the right pose! That was a ton of fun. Awesome job on this! :D

A simple idea with a great execution, i first thought there were too many control keys, but it worked really well for me! Thanks!

fun enough and i can fly~! music and rhythm have nice mix,also remind me of another game i played today.both humor enough. i think if there are some other sound effect,it may could be more nice, well done.

This is an adorably hilarious game. I love the aesthetic and can't stop smiling!

I'm already a pretty big fan (love Morning Makeup Madness) but this is pretty great. It's fantastic to learn that I'm just as bad at yoga in game as I am in real life.

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.
