Interesting idea! I included it in my Open Jam 2018 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Congratulations you earned 5 Open Source Karma stars!

Personally, I think the game barely fits the theme, but I have to say the mood is right there. I just hate how blurry those pixel graphics are.

Developer(+1)

I'm sorry that you don't understand how our game fits the theme. At it's base level the game is centered on mechanics that necessitate the use of spam-clicking to remove various forms of danger (so to win you must spam-click). As for the pixel graphics everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I have always been a fan of games that use them!

Maybe I didn't see how the game fit the theme because it was too hard to understand most of it without reading the instructions, which was another pretty annoying thing, in the end, the game's still pretty cool!

Developer

That is understandable, but to be fair reading the instructions is generally important for well... understanding what to do? I am sorry if you felt frustrated because of needing to read instructions, but we decided against an in-game tutorial because it kinda ruined the mood and flow of the game. That being said, thank you for taking the time to play our game!

Developer

Yeah thanks for your feedback! I totally agree that the game is hard to understand. I intended to have an in-game explanation of what to do, along with multiple levels with increasing difficulty, but of course that took a back seat to finishing the actual game in the time we had.

It is really hard, that clumsy girl keeps dying >:V

Developer

Yes, Cecile is rather clumsy! And we made the game difficult on purpose. Personally, I think part of the fun is trying to get all of the death scenes!

That is true, but ughh. I could kill her, but she kills herself first xd

But good game overall :)
