Very unusual concept! I included it in my Music Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look :)

Very cool game idea, sort of a narrative-puzzle-rythm game. I liked it!

Developer

Thank you axoona^^

I enjoyed the humor! I like how whether it's in the writing or the sounds, the game is made of fun little details. It takes a simple idea and explore it in creative ways, that's really cool!

Developer

Thanks Itooh! I'm glad you appreciated the little details :D

I'm looking forward to streaming your game next week!

Really dig the selection of samples, all very pleasant to the ears! It felt good to mash the keys, made it to the end. The mini objectives were entertaining enough, I could see it being a lot of fun if there were more elaborate goals for the player to complete, or make it possible to actively subvert the lecture which would affect the content of the slides as Professor Professor gets flustered. I quite like your screen layout here, breaking up information across the projector screen, laptop and notepad works great. Nice photo, BTW! Also, Professor Professor's PowerPoint skills are utterly unmatched XD

Developer

Thank you Gigatross, glad you liked it!! That's a great idea re: subverting the lecture slides. I'll save it for the sequel ;)

Played it an Newgrounds, and like I said from there: "Great idea for a low budget, music class...".
The actual gaming was way easier than the tutorial in my honesty. I think that's because, it's like what you've learned from school that doesn't go that well in the real world (am I right? :D ). It was a great experience playing around with stuff at your chair while in class, while I don't look the professor's lecture. Pure slice of life lol! Great work :D

Cool concept. Liked the humor throughout. Not crazy about the wobbly camera. Would be nice if the 'exercises' were more musically oriented. By that I mean like guided. I couldn't seem to put any nice sounded beats together. I was just kind of hitting keys and making noises (programmer not a creative). I couldn't help thinking of a particular gif of someone playing a train simulator while on a train though, as I sat emulating tapping a desk and computer in front of my desk and computer.

Developer

Thanks for playing Ryan! I got rid of that wobbly camera and if I get time I plan to add more ambitious features :) hahaha yeah, it's a vision of the future where we're all gonna be using VR to type on virtual computers!

Clever!  Especially things like picking up the pencil and drumming with it instead of hands.  Love the humor too -nice work!

Developer

Thanks! :) Where did you get up to? I just fixed a bug that might've prevented progress at the waiting part.

Actually I made it all the way through without any issues where it concluded with what i'm guessing was a teaser at the end about the next lecture (art of slides i think it said) :D

Developer(+1)

Oh, fantastic! Yeah, professor professor really knows how to make good lecture slides. :D

OMG, I must be the worst classmate ever. Such a simple concept, but way too much fun. I think my favorite bit was the computer telling me what to do.

(+1)

Oh, that game was so funny. I would never be that guy in class but made what a fun idea.

(+1)

I like to make sounds while the teacher is talking xD

Delightful to play. I could rip up that water bottle all day.
