    Hey guys!

    I'm Adam Thompson from New Zealand, and I recently participated in the Global Game Jam 2014 that was in January.

    My entry was a Unity game that is part Journey, part Zelda, topped off with abstract primitive shapes for its graphics! (One guy, 48 hours!)

    I got my hands on the sample assets that were/are in beta, and I was particularly fond of the beautiful looking sunshafts that came with it. I had so much fun with them that I considered using it as a primary element in my entry.

    Have a play and let me know what you think :D

    I was really caught up in this, the music, lighting, everything, and I couldn't stop until reaching the end.

    Great job!

    This ran really badly on my macbook retina.

    It was okay, and looked great. However I would of liked to see some more gameplay elements.

    How did you make the ball appear behind the columns?

    Worked great on my MacBook Retina.. I have a brand new 13" model, maybe that's the difference?

    I am also interested on the ball behind the other objects and also what you used to get the god ray effects.. Good job!

    Thank you for the nice comments. I'm glad you all mostly enjoyed it!

    Still finding time to write up that postmortem and consider where to from here.

    Brilliant concept and art style! Can you polish it so that it runs smoothly? I guess you can add more puzzles and more text popups narrating a story/ philosophy and release a mobile version.

    What's the music score?
