This was running, but it looked all broken - like constant distortion and was basically unplayable for me.

This was cool Nice mood and sound. Looks incomplete though. I flipped the room upside down, went down a hole in the middle of the 'floor', took a left and walked into a black square that made me immediately fall off the level and into the void.

Maybe this is an existential metaphor that I missed.

That is probably a bug...

Neat concept, and visually looked nice, good job. To me the walking felt slow and I couldn't figure out where to go after going in circles. Also, I think it's worth it to investigate making the file size smaller for future games.

It reminded me a little bit of Antichamber, which I guess is a very hard genre to capture in a game jam. Anyways, I didn't understand any reasons of why the room changed, and somehow still got to end... So I tried again, managed to fall to infinite debths of z dimension, or y, depending how you build it (I did it by dropping down from after the first time seeing the eye, and then backing not looking forward inside the tunnels that I dropped to).

Very atmospheric. I was hoping there was going to be a bit more after it all went dark and all I could see was the white lines for all of the geometry, as I rather liked that aesthetic. Nice job! I didn't experience any game breaking issues with the game myself. I did run into a couple minor collision glitches, but once I jumped they went away.

This was a nice game. Played till the finish were I fall of the world. Also found a place were the block was a picture of three kids and said Gavyn, was this a developer easter? Overall relaxing game to play. Keep it up!

I would like to play, but when I download this game I cannot launch the executable euclid file. I have a bundle of libraries and other files, but nothing works. How can I fix this problem?

What does the console display when you try and launch the game ?

System.FormatException :( can't play

Didn't work for me. When I run euclid.exe I got:

I like this idea of being stuck in a room where if you turn the wrong way you end up in the same place instead of progressing. I thought the choice of colors, materials and sound for this were good. Cheers -RS

It's a shame most of you guys are having issues running the game. We built the render engine from scratch and didn't have enough time/foresight to test it on multiple systems. We are high school hobbiest devs so we expected some compatibility issues, but not to this scale. Next time we will have more hardware to test our game on :/
