Note that this feedback is based on the build(s) available at the end of the jam.

I really enjoyed the concept here. The notion of abstracting the kinds of puzzles you'd typically find in a point and click adventure game out to sequences of "Give A to B" interactions is fun. In some ways, the missing iconography pushed this abstraction further, and although it was clearly intended that images should go in there, I found myself enjoying using my imagination.

I had some issues with mouse clicks not being recognised and mouse up events being missed (resulting in "wants" pop-ups that wouldn't disappear), but with a bit of re-loading and being more careful, I was able to finish the final puzzle.

If you're interested in expanding the concept further, I'd be interested in exploring how timing requirements (either a time limit or windows of opportunity that players have to organise themselves around) and action limits/counters could encourage players to aim for efficiency and accuracy.

Nice work, and thanks for your submission! :D

P.S. I had a go of the updated browser version, and I get an "wants" pop-up that refuses to go away when loading the gun in the Wetwork puzzle.

Hey! Because I don't know where to begin with rating a game, I just want to tell you that I played your game.

Exchanges - I liked how it made me understand this abstract symbols. Especially how there was a wall between two goals.

the graphics aren't loading for me

I added graphics about 24 hours after the jam deadline. Just play the "latest" version instead of the "Jam Reviewed" version.
