Very well made game! Love the graphics, gameplay & puzzles :)

What bothered me was how the levels got really complicated at some point, other than that I really enjoyed everything else, great work! :)

I'd appreciate if you play and rate our game too!

Great game! Rated it.


Things I Liked:

  • A decent music loop!
  • The rewinding animation is very smooth and it's interesting
  • Puzzles are challenging. Found myself with a mini-headache trying to solve number 5 since I had no idea one of the doors was opening! I eventually figured it out though! :) 
  • I loved the visuals! Everything is simple yet cool to look at!

Things I Didn't Like:

  • I thought I completed the game (forgot there was 15 levels) because when I finished level 5 the game sent me back to the main menu. So I closed the game, thinking I was done. Then I saw the screenshots on this page and noticed I missed a lot! So I recommend you send the player back to the level screen instead of the main menu screen. Or just send them to level 6 directly.
  • It's hard to figure out what's happening in the levels... Like level 5 and 10. How was I supposed to know that an electric grid would be on the floor after I flipped a switch? I died because of it and then quit the game. It felt like an unfair death, not knowing there's a new electric grid on the floor in a room that I was in before. Maybe instead of forcing us to reset the level, you can allow us to rewind to a time before we died. Then it wouldn't feel like I wasted all that time trying to figure out a puzzle before dying.

Thanks for your opinion! I agree with everythin you said. One week is not enough to improve every single detail, especialy when you can't waist time for letting your friends test it. After the Jam ends, I'll release an update with bug fixes, improvements and more levels!

Yeah one week is definitely tough, agreed! 

It was still a great game regardless! 


And Brackeys says it multiple times in his videos, but playtesting is never a waste of time 😁 Even if it takes away from development time.

Excellent game my friend, it reminded me of portal :)

Nice puzzle game. Got stuck on the lever level after several minutes of trying to get to the other side of the room. Maybe I'm just not cut out for puzzle games lol. Game looks great though.

If you're having trouble with certain levels, there's a full gameplay video posted as a trailer for the game!

So smooth the animation! I loved the scenario, made me feel a little bit anxious the ambience. I was a bit little confuse with the controls, tho.

Great job!

Sadly i work on MAC but this game really look like the type's of portal game i really love! is there a gameplay video maybe or something so i can still see it?

Developer

I posted full gameplay as games trailer. Due to Jam rules, I can't add MAC build, but I'll do it as Jam ends!

I really like the rewind mechanic!

Great game but i found myself pressing buttons and look for what did it do.Alson for somereason at the lava part game starts lagging.Other than these issues this game has potential to be big nice work! :)

Submitted(+1)

This is such a great game! Great concept and some great puzzles. Only criticism I would give is that there were a couple of levels where I was really guessing where to put myself back to (I think 5 and 10) because I couldn’t see where I was going/what buttons were doing. But then again this is level design from a week’s work and the rest of the levels are fab, nice job!

woah the game looks reaaally good. For some reason I had trouble rewinding time, I think it's because my pc dies trying to handle the graphics hahaha

Submitted(+1)

Cool Game! i can stop time and rewind time its very cool

Submitted(+1)

I really like that game mechanic with the clock! It looks great but it doesn't run that good. In general, well done!

Developer(+1)

yeah, I know. In some levels there are lags. I wanted too game looking nice and sci fi and ended up using HDRP, because LWRP don't support point light shadows, and when I added reflection probes, everythind became shiny, what I liked. After Jam ends, I will add graphics setting option.

Submitted

couldnt play as my PC cant handle graphics well

Submitted(+1)

Graphics are so good. And it is very fun. Maybe there be a little bit better background music but the rewind effect and rewind mechanic is perfect.

Submitted(+1)

This game is very polished, and It is so fun to rewind time (and the effect is crazy cool!).  If you like this idea, keep working on it! I think if this was a browser game it would be so popular!! (unfortunately in these big jams, usually people play browser games more) Awesome job submitting a cool low-poly game to this jam and I hope you learned a lot of new stuff. When you have time, please check out my game :D

WOW ! Very nice graphics, game design and level design. Love the puzzles ! Very good job ! Played it all. (Check out my game, not the same genre tho)

Developer

Thanks for your appreciation. I was afraid that some levels would be too hard... What do you think about them?

As for your game, I played it and I will rate it positively!
