How does your game fit the theme?
You must guide a Moth, who is moving erratically by default, by influencing its direction with a Candle (your mouse). There are other candles which will also influence the Moth's movement, making moving the Moth quite "out of your control".

Nice take on the theme and very challenging gameplay

Developer(+1)

I'm glad you found it challenging, hopefully you were able to finish it!

Challenging game. I included it in my GMTK Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Developer

Thanks Jupiter! I always love watching your game jam playthroughs. Honored that you got a change to play mine :D

Loved it! Mainly the "LAMP" sound effect. 

So fun.

Developer

I'm glad you loved it! I like how much everyone enjoyed the LAMP sfx, it was meant to be a placeholder but I'm glad I kept it in!

Really fun game, loved it ! xD (the "lÄmP" sound effect is pure gold, and I love moths UwU)

Just a small note, the third level maybe needed a checkpoint or two (:

Developer

Thanks! Yeah, definitely wish I had time to add checkpoints. And I really like that both of our games involve a moth that gets attracted to light :D

This is glorious. I wish it was longer lol.

Totally wish I could have added more levels D:

Great game! I'm a huge fan of all the little interactions that things had with each other, I was pleasantly surprised when I found that I could re-light my candle from the others around the room! I think I found a bit of a degenerate strategy of going along the top (but then there was a candle there to trip me up) Great work!

Developer(+2)

Sounds like you found a good speedrun strategy! And I'm glad you were able to figure out you can relight your candle, I considered adding a prompt or something - like "relight on another candle" - but I was really hoping people would instinctually try and relight it on their own.  So I'm glad to hear you lived up to my hopes!

I liked the game, had fun playing it, maybe adding some checkpoints as the game became kind of stressing after a bit, but great game, I also loved the 'Lamp' sound

Developer

Yeah, checkpoints were definitely on my list of things I wanted to add but didn't have time. Glad you loved the Lamp SFX, it was actually me and was the first take!

nice meme! I felt so bad every time the moth died with that little squeak. Also the moth really felt like a moth good job!

Developer

The very first thing I did was work on and polish the moth movement, so I'm glad to hear it was believable!

A very easy to understand and fun game.  The 3rd level is tough!

Developer(+1)

Thanks! I tried to make it pretty intuitive, so I'm glad you found it that way. If I had more time I would have more gently ramped up to the 3rd level, but that's a game jam for ya.

Hey, this game is pretty fun, surprisingly. Very funny.

Developer

Thanks! Yeah, the "graphics" don't exactly speak well for it
