What INSPIRED this game?
This GDC talk inspired me greatly to be an indie dev so i themed my game after his company and made it a match three as he has made many in his career

That was an amazing puzzle game, even without sound and music, it was still very fun and captivating. This would be perfect for mobile, also some sound and music wouldn't hurt either, but at the same time even without sound I really enjoyed it!!

Thanks glad you thought so! If i do a full version ill definitely add music but there are sound effects did they not play for you ?

It's possible I had my sound off, because I'm checking now and I'm getting sound effects! :)

Until I read the comment about how to abduct cows, I was really struggling with it for 10 minutes or so. It was super frustrating, but after I figured it out, it was an interesting game.

Thanks!

LOL I've seen that GDC talk! It was great.


As for the game itself, I realize it was made in an even bigger rush than most, as you didn't have the full jam duration. But it desperately needs a way to get back to the menu from the game screen. I clicked on instructions, but when I saw the wall of text, I decided to try playing the game just to see if I could figure it out. I had no idea what I was doing, so I wanted to look back at the instructions, but there was no way to return to the menu as far as I could tell.

One of the best!
Thanks, yeah roughly 10-12 hrs if i had more time i would have liked to make an actual tutorial come up when you first play. True you have to win or lose to go back to them menu sorry!

Not sure how to abduct cows. I tried, but the three cows stay in place.

It's vertical rows only, as in the UFO is beaming them up I guess.

Exactly!
