The graphics are phenomenal, the puzzle is tricky. Maybe I'm just slow, but it took a good while to figure out. Definitely fits well with the theme. Cool concept.

I like your outline fx.

Couldn't beat it though... I think I was missing an equation somewhere as there were a lot of variables in the system

Nice graphics! And the puzzle is really hard, or I'm just not used to thinking anymore ;-) Good entry!

Too much for my intellect xD

The most beautiful game I found so far! I couldn't figure out what to do with the equations though :/ After over 10 minutes I gave up.

(found this many, spoilers:

Really amazing atmosphere and a really (really) tricky puzzle - had to get some paper out to try and solve it. Loved it.

It's relaxing, and the atmosphere is so dark(Good thing)!

Very very good music and sounds! Nice! Moreover the theme and the mood are cool! Great job!

Really nice atmosphere and realization, loved it !
Puzzle was a bit tricky and maybe not that funny to solve, and in the end I wonder if I solved it the right way (I've been absorbed by the painting and started the room over again).
But really nice work on the interactions with the different objects ! :D

I seem to be too stupid to get the solution. However I like the mood, the setting, the audio.. everything.. so besides the fact that I fail to finish it.. I love it

Wow, nice graphics (lots of shadows in those corners ;) ). Very nice smooth "wake up". The music is pretty cool. Neat object interaction for clues. Were you supposed to get sucked out the window? I couldn't fit one of the equations, so on one of the symbols I guessed. I guess "needs better indication of victory" would be my only real negative-ish comment.

@hermetic, the ending was very rushed! I made that particle effect and the "drawing you in code" in literally the last hour of the jam. It was originally planned to be a very different sequence where you actually escaped the room to the field in the painting.

Thanks for playing! :D

Cool music and atmosphere overall. Controls seemed to work well. Ran sluggish and didn't go full screen for me (kept the windows taskbar at the bottom), but that could be my laptop. Like the concept, but I wasn't smart enough to solve the puzzle.

Ignore that comment about full screen and the task bar staying. It does seem like an issue with my laptop.
