Good start! I included it in my Game Maker Toolkit’s Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)


I really enjoyed this concept because it's both unique and naturally arises from the real-world logic of dice (That is to say, rotating the die naturally changes the face-up number, as opposed to some entries where two unrelated concepts are merged into one). I only wish there was more to play!

Also, it took me way too long to figure out the pun in the title...


Quite enjoyed this, a very neat idea! 

I initially assumed you had to have a higher face when you roll onto the pots, but the second level  affirmed that you had to have a higher face when next to the pot.

The tall grass in level 3 is an interesting way of encouraging the player to try internalize and visualise how the dice will change faces as it rolls, though I will admit I mostly got through with a bit of trial and error.

I think there's a fair bit of puzzle potential here if you ever expand on the game, good job!
