I second that 5/5 for innovation! Fun too. Could very well be a mobile game.

One of the best entries i've seen by far. So simple but so fun. Would be even better with a good song. I really really wish there was an option to pause gameplay and zoom out in free play to look at what you're drawing. I finished it and wanted more but free play isnt as satisfying without seeing the final drawing. Fantastic job man!

Really cool concept. You've proven how with some polish you can make a simple game feel really good.

Good entry, it fits the theme and I'm amazed that you could do it with the technologies that you used! Also, the final drawing was a nice touch.
Moving targets would add some depth (only played free drawing and finished the Christmas tree) :P

This is a very tight game. It focuses on one concept and delivers it well. Nice job

Very satisfying when you get a nice clean line of the targets :) Not so much when you miss one! I would maybe like variable speed control instead of just pause/go states? But it's a really cool concept and well executed.

Really neat concept and execution of it. I feel like there's more potential for this, be it gameplay or sandbox. It's just fun to draw!

At first drawing the cone seemed tedious and repetetive but when the camera panned out it was so worth it, it put a smile on my face.

Very meditative experience! Would be cool to also have models with some straight lines and a speed boost to go with them :)

I felt like a World War I pilot :D
Awesome controls. I feel it needs just a bit more visual polish, but it's a solid entry nonetheless.

Loved it ! I sucked, but for once, being bad makes good results (you should have seen my trajectories). Great game, congrats!

Great game, this is basically 3D connect the dots and it's great!

Dec 16, 2016 @ 5:52pm

This is such a cool idea. Had fun trying to figure out what I was drawing before it was finished. Great work!
