In this short game you play as a maintenance automaton repairing a clock that is getting destroyed by chaotic energies.

It was done in ~10 days for a game jam requiring less than 5 minutes of gameplay.

- Controls -

Use the arrow keys or WASD: left and right to move, up to jump, down to repair.
Don't let chaos reach the inner gears. If they break, the game ends.
You can use the K key to suicide and restart the game.

Images and animations are all done by programming, using canvas drawing primitives.
The music is "suddenly, i feel alone" by OmegaP
The font is "Metamorphous" by Sorkin Type Co

So, funny story: I first played this a while ago and just now came back to it. Only today did I notice that I could jump. That made the game *so* much better. Without noticing that part, I'd been forcing myself to scale and descend every tower of gears. I found myself hoping that the machine would break down so I wouldn't have to deal with as much of it.

This time around, I could use the established structure as a tool for reaching the rest of the structure. Combined with the deepening music and the chaos magic's understated but steady increase in the background, it felt more like a willing contest.

...doomed, but willing. Very nice!

Interesting game! The story was unique and very well-executed, especially for such a short game. It also took me a playthrough to get used to the controls, but after getting used to them I found the gameplay to be smooth and enjoyable.

I love it. I enjoy the challenge of it so to say. It was hard to understand the first try especially with getting use to the controls of how the little "Robot" (What I call it :P) walked. but after you got the hang of the controls and to shift between them fast enough you find it easy and enjoyable :P
