I really enjoyed this a lot! Super fun mechanics and really well designed.  Would have liked to see an enemy in pacman, even though it would have been HELLA frustrating!
Great job!

Thank you! We planned to have enemies in pacman, but the pathfinding was pretty much broken and we had no time/experience to write our own. Great you liked it anyway :)

I seriously enjoyed this game! Great visuals, made me feel like I was really on the desktop of a computer, running programs. Games had fantastic amount of troll, which made me appreciate this even more. Honestly, I could see this game going further, maybe with more secrets hidden in the computer (like hints/files explaining who the player's character is), more games to fix, and a story arc that emerges over time. I'm really impressed with what you accomplished in such a short amount of time! This is my favorite game from the jam so far!

Oh, my one piece of advice is you may want to revisit the itch cover image. In my opinion, it doesn't really show what the game is, and it didn't really pull me in. I actually ended up playing the game because my 3yo daughter wanted me to "play the bunny game" lol, which worked out, I'd say!

Hey Maykaelos. Thanks for your feedback :) I will definitely rework the cover image
