Submitter for GBJam 2 – November 10, 2013

Description:
Luka is an L-block who doesn’t know where he fits in. We all just want to fit in.

Controls:
-Arrow keys move Luka left and right
-Z makes Luka jump when he’s on the ground, or do an air dash once he’s obtained it
-X activates the gravity flip once he’s obtained it
-Enter brings up the map, which indicates where Luka has been and what powerups he has
-Down activates a shape shifting pedestal

Things that move are either collectible or there to mark your last continue point. Things that blink might be good places for Luka to fit into.

After escaping his world and finding himself somewhere else, Luka realizes that he still doesn’t fit in everywhere. Maybe he can find ways to change that. Perhaps he can change himself, conforming to his surroundings. Perhaps he can take what he learns here back home. Perhaps he fit in all along.
