Very interesting game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Low Rez Jam games, if you would like to take a look :)


Fun game! The last one was a little bit difficult to get. Nice game!


Thanks for the feedback! I definitely wanted to add sound but ran out of time. The metaphor problem was also a result of last-minute corner-cutting, believe it or not. I may come back to this project and resolve both issues later on (and maybe even the difficulty of the last stage or two), but I'm glad folks liked this jam version a little! :)


Very clever. I couldn't actually find the last letter, but I knew what it was by then.

Great little ludic illustration, though maybe going against its own metaphor? As you do have to sense the answer...


Nice, like the idea - interesting. :)


Totally stuck :p

Pretty fun to try, though lack of music was a downside.
