I really like the concept!

Just a tip: I think you didn't select macOS as platform for the macOS build (it doesn't show me the icon and it's not listed as available on macOS on the filtered list).

I think I fixed it.  Thanks for the heads up!

*looking at the comment for Granny's wifi password (I've tried admin/admin and snuggle/snuggle btw)

There's one dialogue box that appear too low in level 3. I managed to click on the OK button after stretch the game window a bit further, though.

Fun and a really great interpretation of the theme! Awesome!.

Developer

Oh no!  I forgot to put in an audio clue for the password.  It's:

username: admin 

password: password

Everything lowercase.  Thanks for taking the time to get that far!

The game was super hilarious! The concept was great. I had a few issues with hitting the vertical boxes, perhaps it was a hitbox issue? The game provided a couple super fun minutes  and brings back the days of fixing my grandmother's PC. lol

Funny idea, really like it!

Is there an actual Level 2 in the game? The icon is not clickable for me and there seem to be no way to "win" on Level 1.

Developer

Once you've successfully run the virus scan, you get access to level 2.  It's all a bit fiddly.  Thanks for playing!

Got to Level 2, opened the folder with the cat images. Fighting with the dialog boxes...

Man, this game is annoying like real old Windows 3.1/9x was... :)

It is not clear where to put those cat images, though. To the F: disk? I cannot seem to open a folder for the disk.

Also:

- Move the two icons at the bottom right behind the dialog boxes. They are in the way of clicking.

- I would allow for clicking through the colorful vertical strips appearing. It is enough punishment not seeing correctly from them, but they also capture clicks which make is hopeless when you start to have a lot of stripes.

- Number of vertical stripes should increase a bit less with failures (lower the exponent). It is too easy to get bluescreen on Level 2. (Or introduce difficulty levels.)

- Some dialogs are just flying too fast (for me at least) to click on them. Especially on Level 2 when there are two dialogs.

The game is very funny nevertheless. Good job!

Developer

Yeah... At one point, I definitely had the thought, "Uh, oh!  Maybe this is too much like actually debugging a crappy old computer."

Thanks for the feedback!

The voice is hilarious! The error messages sometimes didn't respond, which can be frustrating, but it was still a fun experience.

Interesting premise, but it needs more in the way of execution than the world's weirdest shooting gallery. Also, mouthsounds are hilarious, but looping the same two bars of music for the entire game is not.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback.  This was my first attempt with Godot, so I tried to choose a very simple project, so that I could actually have something to submit.  As for the music, that's all I could manage with 5 minutes and a ukelele.  I figured it would be better than nothing.

Submitted

You don't have to make everything in the game yourself. You're allowed to use royalty-free music and sounds, for instance.

The granny's voice sounds hilarious.

Thanks!  I had fun with that.

I like the game. It is very funny :D

Thanks for playing!  The next one will be better, I promise.
