    Pretty cool soundtrack, very ambient. Gameplay is indeed rubbish :D

    Music and atmosphere are awesome. I got minus thousands of score.

    You know, actually, the gameplay's not that bad. As a mood/experience type of game this is kinda cool. The graphics and the sound and the germs... it's like an OCD sim.

    Pretty sound and Sfx, i don't understand what to do, though :)

    The sounds is pritty neat, but the game itself is not so cool, i didn't really get what to do, though the music did fit well, even know i wasn't sure what to do ;p

    Very nicely put together! More time needed on the game part, obviously, but it has a great feel to it. Loved the weird flickery organic-ness to it.

    Beautiful atmosphere and music. That was a really engaging experience. Though as you said yourself, gameplay was a little odd! I did enjoy all of the ambient elements though.

    Really nice entry!

    Beautiful graphics, audio and mood. But, I did not understand what i had to do with gameplay.

    I love the visuals and the background music, they really set you in a desperate, sad mood.
    The gameplay is rubbish though, but you said that, too.

    You managed to get a cool vibe going but the gameplay could be a bit more compelling.

    I told you on irc i've got -4000 xDD but it's quite interesting! i love the effects! :)

    LOL my score was like -OVER 9000!! weird game indeed.. But great music/graphics/mood.

    Very hypnotic experience. In the end I felt kind of sorry for the slime molds - I mean, they seemed lonely and just wanted to be together, right? - so I left them to it... And left the music playing in the background. :)

    Loved the melancholic mood. Sound and music are awesome and I also liked gfxs. Unfortunately there is not much gameplay there although i'm sure it has potential to be expanded into a full fledged game.

    I music and the graphical effect are really nice, good job! The gameplay though, well I didn't quite understand what I could do that actually affected anything.

    This has a lot of personality, I really liked it.

    I think that your game would definitely benefit from a game over, since we're trying to stop something from happening (rather than, say, reach a goal).

    Like you said yourself, though, beautiful graphics and sound. Let's all vote high for mood!

    looks and sounds lovely.

    Really good music and graphics, but was there something to actually do in this game ? I started to click and drag to push the slime molds.. and then just stop to see if if was doing anything, that didn't happen, so I quit. Nice to see something that beautiful, though !

    Beautiful music and creepy mood, the flickering and other lighting effects really added to that too! I wasn't too sure about the gameplay... didn't feel like I was making much of an impression on the molds. ^_^

    Still, it's an interesting experience.

    Yeah, you set an amazing mood in this game! The graphical style and the audio go together fantastically well. Very nice ambiance. A new gameplay concept (you ARE the slime mold... slime mold tower defense... tower climb on slime molds...) and you'll have something really noteworthy here.

    There's not much I can add that hasn't been already covered by the other comments. You did an amazing job with the graphics and sound, but there's not much of a game here.

    Amazing ambient music, I really loved it =). I can clearly see this game working on a touch screen device with a little bit of work, good job.

    Great music, interesting experience, lacking gameplay.

    May 12, 2012 @ 7:28pm

    Audio, Graphics, Theme and Mood get top marks! Seriously awesome art game

    May 14, 2012 @ 1:04am
