Ludum Dare 37 — December 9th-11th, 2016 — Theme: One Room

Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

INF is a game about what INF is a game about.

Er... I mean, INF is a game about recursion. There are infinitely many rooms in every level, except that they're all the same one room! The screen has a smaller version of itself on it, and you have to continually enter and exit into different parts of the screen to beat the levels. (I'm not sure if that explained it well... but if not, you can just play it!)

I made it with Unity, Gimp, and sfxr.

Things that I wish I could have made in the time are music, more levels, and features like multiple miniscreens/angled miniscreens (besides upsidedown.) It's also just super unpolished. Things I was happy with are the level design, and the self-insertion theme of everything including the logo (which I really love!) and the sprites.

Wow, this is a really awesome concept for a puzzle game! I hope you work on it further, because I'd really like to see more of it.

Pretty trippy, in a good way. Love me a mind bending puzzler :)

Wow this is really mind bending. This is really an awesome idea! The only thing I would change is the sprite of the player, it kind of doesnt fit the rest of the game. But the concept really is excellent.

Fun and innovative! Also trippy. Some flashing glitches on the rotating levels, but other than that, very smoothly executed. Very cool use of the theme. Audio was fine and not annoying, but could use some music for sure. I agree with @fishbrain, this can go places :) This is totally my favourite so far. Easy to pick up and hard to master.

This is a really clever and unique idea! Kinda hard to wrap your head around it at times. Nice work!

Oh man. This is an incredible concept and execution. I couldn't beat it, but I made it far enough to be thoroughly impressed by it. You should definitely try to make this into a full game!

Trippy. Really unique idea for a puzzle game. Impressed by how many puzzles you were able to create

Really incredible game! All of the levels felt really well-made, and the main mechanics and concept are excellent. I would love to see more.

This game is nuts! I love it so much. Amazing job

This is a really awesome concept. A great mind-bender (reminds me of calculating your Portals right). I'd really love to see you keep working on this further. Great work--so much fun!

That was really cool! Loved the momentum aspect of the game. I would love to see more coming out of this.

I would have liked more tell on what your expected trajectory is. The momentum aspect, for me, was the hardest to understand. Either more tutorials or some arrow making it clear where your next path is going to be would be useful. Some levels appeared more complex without this clear distinction.

Cool stuff! And you're right, it is a lot like my game in 2D!

Really awesome concept! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Out of the frying pan and into the fire. The way this can be construed is for it to be played.

Totally awesome puzzle mechanic! Really well made. Congrats!
