I was really excited by the theme and the originality I encountered within this game! It was a fun playthrough~ 
Thanks for the funny quotes and the Assassin's creed unity inspired bug faces ! I had plenty of fun time just from all these.

Very interesting game concept. I really liked the letter at the beginneng and the wierd bug stories. The gameplay of the game hinks a bit behing though

You're game was definitely took some creepy twists. I enjoyed the game very much, the game is best played in the dark.

Unique gameplay and original storyline. The game is as weird as it should be, not more, not less. It took me about a minute to realize that the letter is actually the main menu of the game, LOL :)

Very nice, and original. The only complaint I have is how short and easy it is. Oh well, short and sweet it was.

It's weird! It's delightfully weird!

You absolutely succeeded in creating this structure of creating a game within a game; it reminded me a bit of Pony Island. The aesthetic, too, is really well done; everything's just ever so slightly off. I was hoping for a bit more of a twist on just how broken the game is, but the process of "find bug, fix bug" works well enough. And those dialogue sections with the known bugs (dear god that pun was beautiful) are just so bizarre it puts a smile on my face.

You have a pretty unique style of games, and I'm always in for trying new stuff. I liked this idea of "gameception" and being a detective, finding someone else's bugs. Over time I wished for an instruction or a hint on what to do next, but eventually the answers come along.

Hi, you have the windows version in the linux download. Could you patch it? Thanks!

I have no idea how that got in there. I will fix it.

EDIT: done.
