Great concept and execution! Graphically very pleasing. Sometimes wished the sliders has labels.

Developer

Thank you! I think the game would be too easy with labels, and they would add unnecessary weight on visuals I wanted to be as simple as possible. I thought it would have been a nice addition to let players add their own labels tho, but I missed time! Or perhaps show some cryptic acronyms...

Nice concept! I liked a lot this game. Very creative.

Developer

Thank you so much! I liked making it too, have done several jams before and this one was really focused and straightforward for me. Glad you like it!

Cool game! It would be nice if there was some leeway to be a little bit wrong but it was fun!

Thanks! I too thought about being not too strict with the solutions, so I tuned each step (the sliders increment) so that the differences would be noticeable. Maybe it's still too strict, and that might call for difficulty settings for a post jam!

Thanks! Indeed there's matter for more, perhaps in a post-jam version?

Very clever, beautiful, and intuitive! Great ideas!

Thanks Dja! I was driven by that minimalist aesthetic and what can be done by some really simple shapes (just a bunch of html divs and text) and a set of simple controls. Glad you liked it!

What a cool game! This is so creative and the puzzles were a lot of fun to solve!

Developer

Thank you! The "take the most of the less" is an approach I like a lot.
