Just played your game! It was in fact a similar idea, yours seems kind of trickier though! really good game!! I would love to hear some Sound as well ! 

Developer

I'll try to add some sound for the next release. :-)

Wow! Amazing game!!! I really liked it! super challenging, levels where smartly crafted, and you created a lot of levels! It's super hard to make good puzzle levels on a time limit! Pretty cool! The take on the theme is great!

Developer

Thanks ! I decided quite early on to go for levels over extra features. And I did get quite lucky stumbling on some interesting puzzles.

Submitted(+1)

That was surprisingly hard actually! The first few levels were nice and easy and then I got pretty stuck and really had to think. I like the art style too!

Submitted(+1)

Pretty cool one. Good core mechanic and I like the visuals!

Developer

Thanks. I can't take credit for the graphics though. They come from kenney.nl

Submitted

Yeah, I've noticed that, but it was a good choice of graphic style anyway)

I like it. Lovely puzzles

Poor guy at least have his clones to help. Quite challenging puzzles actually! reminds me of an old hacking game i played on phone. ^^

Developer

Do you remember the name ? Might be interesting to compare.

Submitted(+1)

Wow i just checked my iphone and it still has it after 3 years.. well its called "The hacker" and there was a mini game where you align bugs to fixes but then yours have the "cloninators"? so yours is quite different. love the twist. ^^ gives player more challenge on how many clones to create.

Thanks !

I liked the idea here! The learning curve is a little steep for this though.

Keep it up!

This is a great puzzle game! It's simple, it's logical, it's challenging and has a good difficulty progression. Love it! <3

Pretty hard puzzle game, also the game jam theme is like kinda here but kinda not. Good puzzle game tho

Developer

There is "only one" character. I just wanted to explore that idea.

Great puzzle game! Keeping the option to skip a puzzle was a good idea too, as mentioned in one of the comments, it would've been better to have the option to hold the arrow keys to move, but I given the limited time constrain, it is understandable, good job!

Developer(+1)

Yes, I have fixed the movement in the mean time, and will upload that once the Jam is over.

Thats an amazing puzzle game idea! At first I though: Huh? Whats the challenge. But when it came to multiple clones, my brain just wanted to give up. very quickly :D I am not soooo sure about how you implemented the theme of the jam here though. But maybe its an antonymic approach. "I am Legion for we are many." comes to my mind....

PS: Of course I would like your rating on my game as well ;) https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-2019/rate/460633 

Developer

My thought process was "only one", "alone", ... "mirror images ?"... :-) The idea (which I didn't get to) is that eventually your mirror images may become enemies as well. There is still "only one" character, and you play all roles at once.

Submitted(+1)

Love it! SPOILER WARNING: The last level had me standing in the middle trying to figure out how to get them to pass each other up top (I had a plan I think would have worked) until I just decided to play with letting mirror images spawn mirror images until I was like "Hey, wait a minute! That's a solution to the level!" :D

The puzzles are quite fun, and the design does make you feel alone, just playing with your own mirror image. Great work!

Developer(+1)

Super! I love that puzzle. It was a happy accident while just playing around with the mechanics.

Submitted(+1)

wew this got too complicated for my tiny brain, but up until i was too dumb it was great!

Developer(+1)

Don't forget: page up/down lets you skip levels. ;-)

Submitted

i forgot :O

Submitted(+1)

Great concept and execution, fun and interesting to play.

Submitted(+2)

'If I make enough clones one of them will go into the blue box' Actually worked xD

Good puzzle game, we seemed to have a similar interpretation of the theme but I really do like your execution.

Developer(+1)

Yeah, you can cheese the solutions a bit, which is fine to me. You're alone in the game, but if you want to make more of you than needed, why should I stop you ? :-)

I checked out your game. You're right, similar idea, different execution and mechanics. Love it !

Submitted(+1)

Very creative concept! Unfortunately, I wasn't smart enough to get past the 4th puzzle or so, but definitely a very unique game!

Developer(+1)

Did you see that you can use PAGE UP/DOWN to skip between levels ? I added that in so that anyone can try all puzzles, rather than get stuck and give up on everything.

Super appreciate those accessibility features, will def. come back and see it through to the end! :D

One quick thing i forgot to mention is that it would be neat if you could hold directional buttons to keep walking, instead of having to spam buttons to travel long distances. 

Developer(+1)

I know. I wanted to fix that, but I only had half a weekend and it fell by the wayside.
