Relevant Metaness Categories

Genre Deconstruction

How is your game meta (within each relevant category)?
The game parodies low quality "education" type games. Such games usually feature poorly-made cartoon graphics and simplistic, overtly happy music, as well as point-n-click or drag-n-drop gameplay that "teaches" children. Often times, the gameplay has very little educational value due to the reliance on easy win conditions and meaningless puzzles.

Please list any pre-made art/music/other assets that you used.
Used interact.js for drag-n-drop

This is hilarious.  I loved that when I won, it opened a new window with the same music playing over top of it, then I won again and it inception-ed again.  Pure brilliance.  Definitely accomplished your goals and did a great job!

Woah! That is really ingenious!

I didn't expect that at all. Perfectly meta.

That was a little trippy.  And very meta.  I could only get about 4 computers in before the overlapping music made me stop  :)

The meta is strong in this one........

Very cool idea, but I think I reached the end of the line with a blank screen?

WTF Did I just played. Anyway, this made me laugh hard, good job!

I actually liked this one. The graphics needs to be improved, but the experience from playing this was trippy. I don't know if the stacking of music was intentional, yet I find it mesmerizing. Good job.

There's a bug if you drag an object then dropped somewhere that it's hard to pick up (like I dropped at the power supply, comparing to its size from the rest (CPU for example) it would cover the whole graphic, making it hard to click on), it forced me to restart the game.

Thank you for your feedback! I'm glad you liked the music loop, that was intentional and it seems to have the desired effect! I understand the bug you are experiencing: it is the result of some odd requirements CSS and Interact.js need to recognize a dropbox, but I will look into getting it fixed. Thank you again for the feedback, and we are glad you enjoyed it!

doesn't work, probably because it tries to load  code.interactjs.io/v1.3.3/interact.js via http, not https, and gets blocked by browsers.

Developer

Hey! Sorry about that, it has been updated and should work now! Thank you for the feedback!

Hey! Sorry about the brokenness, it should be fixed now. Thank you for your feedback!
