Very meta :P

Oh man, this game is realistic.


Pretty relatable scenario!

Oh wow, this was just delightful.  Short and well thought out.  I hated it! Sorta!  Made me feel like a kid again...  Very Meta!

Good work!

I've had real games go like this with my kids.


Oh, the memories! From experience, it only gets worse once the game actually starts. Really fun story!
