Thanks for the review. I really liked your voice acting for each of "the voices" in the game.

Thank you!

It gave me something to do for each game that was pretty long and dialogue heavy so I just continued for every game I could hahahaha

I got passed the town of idiots but then got a black screen.  THen nothing.  No inputs worked, I couldn't close and restart.  Nothing! I'm inept, help me!

Developer

The game is no more there. She commited suicide. That's the end of the game. :) :) :)

Game wanting to be another game is a pretty meta concept, but I think I only made it up to the Monkey's Paradise and the game ran away on me..

Developer

Thanks for your comment.

Do you think it would be better if the player can get to know "the other games" before it runs out?

I was really confused.  That was too meta!  :)

I liked the concept and the execution.  The humor was nice also.  At the end of the first level I totally saw the continue button too late and tried to exit.  Which then made the next conversation pretty funny.

Nicely done.  

Developer

Thanks for your comments. It's good to know that (and makes me really happy) you liked the idea and the humor. There are a couple of things I couldn't put into the game due to planning issues, but I'll work on them in a couple of weeks. I hope you play that version too.

It looks very polished, but the first level where you are supposed to 'kill' the squares, I don't know how to progress since I can't do anything except for walking!

Developer

Hi, thanks. Hit the walls to make points. :)
