I broke free from the temple... I guess that's it? Is it a piece of minimalist interactive art inviting us to break free? But if it is, what's up with the buttons? Or is it a physic/art/tech demo? Or something else? Whatever that is, it's pretty cool, but it left me the not so good kind of perplexed.

Really unique and unusual experience. Thanks!

Certainly different. I wouldn't class it as a game myself but it well worth experiencing. I can imagine it would be even more immersive with VR.

A disturbing experience with a pretty cool interaction on the elements. The main aesthetic is really interesting and the mood - weird. I assume that it was your will :)

Странно странно - мне понравилось. Чем вы были движимы, чтоб вы могли создать ту игру? О чём речь идёт? На самом деле, у меня возникает множество вопросов. Тем не менее, вас поздравляю за то, что вы сделали. Другой видео есть? - шаман2. Не нашел ничего. Вам желаю успехов ++

Overwhelming atmosphere. Very strange indeed, but with a high art value :) Great one!

I really want to be able to play this because I saw it on the main page and it screams out custom graphics engine! :)

Is it ray traced? Or ray marched distance estimation perhaps? Are you using CPU rendering or GPU rendering? How do you shade it? Etc :)

Interesting game? I included it in my compilation video series of Ludum Dare 36, if you’d like to take a look :)

It's just Unreal Engine! I didn't use line tracing for slicing meshes. The meshes were sliced in 3ds Max before they were placed on the level. Such a disappointing)

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. Many solo participants 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.
