wonderfully weird

My ideas could not withstand the moonlight of dinosaurs. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the premise a lot. I can see how the quirkiness of it could inspire someone looking to generate new ideas, well done!

Now there's a new way to fill your screen with notes. You have mastered ui by making everything a cactus, this is really cool since it is a note application, but has a sorta story built in xD

While it isn't a game-game, it reminded me of some old built-in pc applications :) I enjoyed it nonetheless!

Thanks. I'm curious which applications you're thinking of.

Sadly I don't remember their names only how I experienced them :(

windows 7 sticky notes

oh damn. That's true. I didn't realize I was remaking Windows 7 sticky notes.

But win7 didn't have raptor attack mode!

Very very creative and very fun! I also like the explanations regarding creativity. It could use a bit smoother controls and better editing of existing notes, but what a great idea!

Developer

Thanks for playing. I think I know what you mean about the controls. I'll see if I can tweak them.

Jajaja i laughed my ass off with this one, like you made it on drugs or what, i admire your creativity

Developer

Nice. Thanks for playing! I'm still finding my aesthetic / style. Dryerverse and Frackit are pretty weird too.
