My entry to the Ludum Dare 43 Jam, made in 72 hours over a weekend (jam entry page)

Help advance science by solving puzzles and conducting exciting experiments! You might have to make a few sacrifices to succeed.

Keypad or wasd to move. R to restart a level if you’re stuck. Pause with P or ESC.

This is my second game jam (my previous game was Pyramidion, which I made for LD42).

There are overall 8 levels in the game.

Important Information

  • The missing cheese on level 4 is not a bug! If you’re stuck, you can watch a playthrough of the game here.
  • Sadly, I am pretty sure the game is not color-blind friendly. I realized this too late. I wanted to upload a post jam version that doesn’t rely on color indications the weekend after the jam, but I caught a flu and couldn’t really get any work done. I will still try to fix it in a post jam version!
