"Juggle Jam" is more of a toy than a game. It's based on some mathematical theory behind juggle patterns. It has been made in 48h during LDJAM 40.
You can :

  • load premade juggling patterns
  • create your own juggling patterns using a dedicated in-game editor
  • create a random juggling pattern and let it hypnotise you

If you know how to juggle, you can try to follow the motion and the patterns.
Let me know if you have managed to reproduce some patterns with real balls.
Time spent during the jam actually juggling instead of coding : too much

Controls :

  • keys C and V and arrow keys
  • return : menu/help
    In play mode :
  • c:toggle view
  • v:go to editor mode
    In editor mode :
  • c:grab a ball or a throwing node
  • v:go to play mode

This idea was inspired by a video from Numberphile, you can check it if you want to know more about some math theory of juggling :

I recorded a Timelapse while making this game, so here it is, 2 days compressed in 2 minutes.
