fun game


I wonder how do you make the dice bounce on the ground so realistically?

Animating that was a challenge. I drew the dice in different perspectives and made them into a sprite sheet.


It's really hard work for a game made in 2 days. But you made it like in a real 3D environment.

Actually its in 2d! The game cheats the by storing the height of the dice and handles those physics separately and moves up the die up to make it look like its in the air


Can someone please simplify what they just said.

To be fair its not really that simple unless you know a bit about how games are made. The basic concept is the game uses a completly 2d physics engine and just fakes vertical height with the shadow which makes it look like its in the air


Very cute and fun :3
This kinda feels like something I could play on cool math games ngl lol
Also the INFINITE DICE once you beat it because at a point you will always have atleast 2 matching @_@

This is like the best chess related game I have played! Great job!


sometimes dice just bounce off enemy when it should kill :(



Really cool ¿Which engine did you use?

The game was made in Unity.

Wonderful, happy to have completed it

Good job finishing!

favorite game so far!

we will be uploading a post jam version with that feature! Due to a bug it doesn’t work in the jam version 


Insanely good. Maybe a little overwhelming.

Not a bad game with a very unconventional and interesting idea that I have not seen before! However, too complicated for me :0

Bugs, in my short learning journey of this game I did not find, and if the game added a couple more levels, maybe bosses and the main menu, you could put it out as a finished product.

Overall I enjoyed it, 9/10 dice.
