Thanks! Getting decent animations together in a couple days was a total nightmare

Simple concept, well executed. Good job. Loved the artwork and the music.

fun little game, having a hard time seeing what it has to do with capitalism though :) my best score ended up being 22

Thanks, Iā€™m glad you thought it was fun! 

The primary theme we went with was Man vs Machine, which is precisely the story of John Henry! As far as capitalism goes, we felt that a lot of capitalistic ideas support things like the exploitation of (especially black) labor so it still seemed relevant šŸ˜„
