Navigate the world by changing the light colors, opening new paths, making sweet trick jumps, flippin' switches, and finally escaping this kaleidoscopic, mind bending world!

Tip: You don't have to click directly on the lever to switch them, your character just has to be touching them when you click!


Color combinations are based on additive color mixing. It may be helpful to keep something like this nearby for a reference! (I should have had a stylized version of something like this in the corner of the screen)

NOTE: I accidentally left in some developer cheats. Specifically, keys '4', '5', and '6' will toggle the lever lights in the level. I mention this in case someone accidentally discovers it and thinks it's a bug. I recommended not using them, but they could help you out if you get stuck XD


PERSONAL NOTE

Phew! This was my first game jam, and it was a blast! A lot of work, but tons of fun! And a great learning experience too. I hope you all enjoy the game. Early feedback suggests the difficulty ramps up a bit too quickly -- Sorry about that! My best tip is to go slow, analyze the colors of the blocks carefully and predict how they will change before you make a move!

Special thanks to my wife for running around our house in the last few hours, recording various clicks of light switches, grinding sounds, and door rattles! The game would have no sounds without her!
