I also included this game in an article of my favorites here!

Love the concept! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the GBJam 5 games, if you'd like to take a look :)

not that much gameboy feel, but a very nice puzzle game with well thought mechanics and a wonderful mood.

Amazing game!

Loved the art style, loved the puzzles (althought the last of them was really annoying). The story added a lot to the game.

Also, the sounds were on point!

One of my favorite games of the jam :D

Parabéns ao desenvolvedor!

Congratulations to developer!

Very great game. Nice use of light to solve puzzles. Have no idea how to solve the beetle room.

I went into this kind of expecting just a Closure clone, and I came away quite pleasantly surprised. I like how much puzzle variation you manage to get with a few basic systems, and the little story elements are perfect, just enough for us to fill in the gaps.

I really like the game mechanics and the end was shocking o_o

I'll follow to check on updates after the jam.

Good work!

Cool game, the light mechanic works pretty well on it, and artistically is very effective. Nice entry!

Gostei muito!

Muito interessante.

Incrível como espiritualmente parece com o meu jogo, sendo totalmente diferente ao mesmo tempo!

Great puzzle game! Very reminiscent of Closure at first, but the later areas focused on using the spotlights felt more original. The last puzzle with the living battery bread monsters felt a little tedious though; it's one of those things where you solve the puzzle quickly in your head, but it takes a long time to get the pieces into place.

The audio was nice too, and did a good job of adding atmosphere.

Amazing gamefeel. I love the music too!

Really love the feel of this game I'd have to agree with the other comment about sometimes not being sure what to do or where to go, but with a couple more visual cues in the places where that does happen I think that could easily be resolved; polish not possible to apply during a Game Jam, really!

Great entry! Loved the puzzles (they can get really tricky!) and the open-endedness of the rooms. Nice one! :)

This game really looks great and plays smooth. I wondered at some times what I was expected to do, like buttons were not really visible (intentional or because of game boy limitations maybe). Good luck with your further progress.
