Interesting game... I included it in part 8 of my Ludum Dare 30 compilation video series :)

Thank you!

A bit buggy but I enjoyed it. It would've been nice not to have to start from the beginning every time I died.

I didn't really know what it was supposed to be. My viewers on Twitch said he looked like a potato, so I called him Pete Potato. But he can be whatever you want him to be!

Definitely has connected world theme by dimensional travelling. Game is quite simple at the moment and could use some more work. Funny looking character and crazy warping sound effect was awesome.

Thanks man! Sorry I dropped out of the stream early, my internet cut out. Great feedback though!

When I walk into the teleport gates, the character just starts vibrating in different places onscreen (Linux version). But it was fun until I teleported into fire and had to restart the game from the beginning.

Haha thanks for the feedback! I did have some glitchiness with all OS's and I think I know why. I will be changing/fixing some things based on requests for port-mortem, so stay tuned!

The teleporters were really nutty. After playing a few levels poor Mr. Potato got stuck inside some horrid World In-Between were he was doomed to view the dimensions he was used to traversing, warping from one viewpoint to another and back again in the blink of an eye whilst listening to the sound of a teleporter absolutely spazzing out. Forever.

But that was pretty fun, too. And while it wasn't all that hard, it's a pretty decent concept for a puzzle game.

Hahaha, thanks for the feedback! I did fix the portal glitch in the post-mortem if you want to actually finish the game and have more fun with it.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.

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.

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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.

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.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
