This game had a brilliant concept, I really enjoyed it and felt great satisfaction with each completed area. I think the level being in tune with the audio was a really nice touch too and I like how you have to shout to exit the game at the end.

This is super cool!  I love the idea of using an unconventional control scheme like this.  My suggestion would be to make it more clear what different color speakers do.  I think the marble had to be touching red ones for them to work?  And green ones could be held on with constant sound?  Not sure about the blue ones, though.

Keep up the good work! =)

Developer

Thank you! Blue is just a burst of sound, like snapping your fingers, red is controlled by a beat which you switch on and green is constant sound like you said!

fun and original game, definitely out of control. I felt like there was a delay.

Developer

Thank you! yeah the blue speaker doesn't activate until your voice goes back down, so if you keep talking there'll be a delay, which I will remove in the post jam version!

It was pretty funny yelling at my pc to get this marble to move around. The program worked suprisingly well, though there is around 1 second delay. I also couldn't progress through the part pictured below. The bottom speaker activated, but the one on the side didn't. So, it was impossible to progress any further.

Developer

The side speaker is activated by controlling the marble that was on the right to hit the switch. Unfortunately, I found out that on machines that run the game on low FPS the marble on the right sometimes phases outside the slope. Will be fixed once uploads are unlocked though. Thank you for playing and I hope you liked the mechanic! :D

Yeah this same thing happened with me.  I restarted the game and I could see the ball, and I watched it shoot straight through the right wall.

This concept was hilarious and I could absolutely see this being a rage/party game of sorts in the future.  Amazing work :D.

Submitted(+1)

Very nice concept! I was curious if I would see some weird type of controls, and your game is very unique on that part! Good job!

Submitted(+1)

Damn this is a nice concept, only problem: tighten the physics a bit, cause the second marble keeps phasing through the slope.

Developer(+1)

Thank you! And yes that happened to someone else and it seems to only happen to people running it on low FPS, I've got an idea for a fix once uploads are unlocked though!

this is really awesome concept! enjoyed it. well done.

Submitted(+1)

Very cool!!! I can see the lots of work you put into this game! Congrats!

Submitted(+1)

Awesome concept! And pretty well made :)

Now you need to design a level that one can complete when clicking or singing/shouting at exactly the right time to some song

Developer

Will definitely do that once uploads are unlocked! Thank you for playing it!

Very clever idea, well executed. Good job! :)

Ah yes.. the "AAAAAAAH" game :D

Thank you for submitting it the the stream, I had a blast playing it. I just hope that the poor people who had to listen to it have recovered haha. Its a really cool concept, I have seen a couple of game that use the microphone before, but yours is the one that "makes the most sense" (the fact that your transmitting audio into the speakers in order to make the marbles move).

I am glad I managed to play through it! And I really liked how you could close the game with your voice :D

Great job!

Developer(+1)

I'm really glad you enjoyed it and thank you so much for streaming jam games, it's really good for developers to see their games being played live so I really appreciate it!
P.S: A friend is coming over today so I finally might be able to check out your game!

Submitted(+1)

Oh my broken microphone also worked to play this game ^^
