Hardcore !

10/10 I cried while playing this because of my trauma from academia. On a real note, this was a really intriguing idea but more of a well-written puzzle or test instead of a game. I have limited experience with programming-based games but I'd play this more if I was given more accessible resources and UI for the game eg. instead of a PDF, ground the instructions into the game, and feed us knowledge slowly in separate levels with separate instinctual tutorials. There's a game here, just a lack of level design so to speak.

My favorite entry so far, although I am a bit biased ;)

Is this... love at first sight???  :o
Incredible game!

I never want to touch any other programming language than Polynomials anymore..

Amazign idea, hard learning curve

I'm too drunk for the later stages but this is a super weird idea. I love it.

This seems really interesting. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get through the manual enough to really play it, and I showed my programmer partner as he wasn't that enthralled either. Really interesting and unusual idea though, perhaps not super accessible

What have you done... this is amazing

I'm a simple man: I read "Inspired by zachtronics" and I will give all the stars.

In other news, fantastic idea! I will definitely be coming back soon to complete all puzzles :)

Zachtronics minus the gentle learning curve. I feel like I'm back in high school math class, but in a bad way.

This is the most horrifying abomination to ever grace the earth.  A++ excellent idea.
