Game for Malaga Game Jam Weekend 6, made in 48 hours. The theme was "Attraction".

"Love Is About Shining" is an usual love story about boy meets girl. But is too about girl meets girl, boy meets trans or trans meets girl.

In "Love Is About Shining", you must found love ignoring the shapes of lovers, because love is not about gender, love is about how your beloved makes you shine.

Love is Love.


You must find two people (shapes in the board) that be in love one another. 

A person is in love with another one if his heart color matches with the other person body color. Also, the second heart color must matches with the first one body color. Easy, isn't it?

Both hearts will shine when they fall in love! ^^

People are in love just for a time: click them quickly to meet each other!

And do not play with the their illusions or they will fall out of love :(.

Be aware with the time! You have a limited time to find every match (lower bar), and if you miss a match you will broke the lovers hearts and  will receive a time penalty :'(.

Hi! Thanks for the feedback! Yes, maybe it could be easier to understand, but it was a game jam game and I wanter to create some kind of emergent narrative where people loves people, but sometimes it is unrequited and you have to found the right matches.

Hello, i think the "the second heart color must matches with the first one body color" is a too much rule, i think it could better without for the understanding of the player.
