About Gaming Culture
External Interaction

How is your game meta (within each relevant category)?
Gaming culture involves that a lot of players that hate windows updates and the blue screen of death. External interaction involves around messing the software by windows. As of "Other", it's a satirical film (played in a game) on how we (probably...) hate waiting in the middle of an update and the feeling of the indefinite, punchy-in-your-face of the blue screen of death.

Please list any pre-made art/music/other assets that you used.

Anything you want to say to players before they play?
You'll be using the mouse a lot, sometimes the keyboard and the rest is in your imagination.

OK, I finally uploaded a video of my playthrough, it can be found here:


I got stuck! I'm so dumb.  I figured out what you were going for after like 3 attempts on the don't move portion... I feel dumb.  But overall, excellent work!


Really enjoyed this one. Here's my thoughts: 


Nice game, made me wait forever for it to load!

Your game is part of my let's play video. Check it out!


I hate waiting for updates but this was a neat experience.  Sound and sfx were great and everything flowed really well.

I never figured out the do not type this state multiple times screen.  I got through it by just randomly mashing keys on my keyboard...

I also think that the Do Not Move screen was a little backwards.  Throughout the whole time you advance by disobeying, now suddenly you have to listen.  

This was fun.  Well done! 

I hate you for the message in the middle of the game...  :)


A very intriguing concept! And probably way more fun of an experience than the real thing.


Nice effects and music guys! The concept is so meta as well, I liked the loose focus mechanic :)

Good job!


Great job putting this together in such a short period of time, and that end screen is pretty cool. I like the idea of hidden objectives/goals! Having the volume up is a bad idea though
