  • QUESTION: Whether this game is The Worst <3? Obj. 1. That this game cannot be The Worst <3, for it has delightful puzzle sections with silly tricks up its sleeve. I answer that, although many participants of this jam might be said to be The Worst <3, this one is truly The Worst <3. Not only is there a delightful action section with statted empties, there is also wonderful art, existential angst, and Indiana-Jones-style adventure. Reply to Obj. 1. While it is true that the puzzle sections are delightful, in one segment involving centipedes, this philosopher found himself accidentally doing the solution correctly--but miscounting particularly colored centipede heads--and self-trolling for a few minutes before finally checking the editor.
  • The graphics ARE excellent. There were some real surprises in there, too. I will gladly register, I am ready to print and send the order form!

The beauty of the cutscenes and the painfulness of the challenges are both exceptional.

This one was weird! Very good cats, but that torch maze was very jarring in a way that made it tough to want to get through. Granted, my own stubbornness when playing on stream didn't help.
