Can you please provide a tar.gz or rpm build of the game? I run Fedora and it doesn't support deb packages.

Hope this works: https://we.tl/t-dUO7tvMqEs (made with alien)

I spent the whole afternoon creating a virtual Linux OS including a rust build route.

Every time I do something with Linux it's like going down the rabbit hole. But I made it!

You can download the rpm package now.

bluestreak0 thx for pre building the rpm

Cool little puzzle game, I liked it ! 

A bit hard to understand in the beginning to be honest

This game is really cool! I think it has the potential to become even cooler if it was made clear to the player what to do. I also really appreciate that you interpreted the theme in a unique way, incorporating it into the actual mechanics instead of just creating a normal game in a vaguely future-themed environment.

Thanks for the feedback.

I love to integrate the themes of the games Jam into the game mechanics. (not my first jam)
Nice that you recognized it. 

My ambition is that the player always finds out for himself how the game works and what he has to do. 

What I didn't do very well with this game due to a lack of visual feedback and time. 
I wanted to add it somehow in the last 2 hours. Yep! 

In the post jam version I'm currently working on. There will definitely be a tutorial available. 
If a few pictures are enough or if it needs text (which I always want to avoid) I still have to decide.

I like the music and the animations and it makes me feel good when I get the right answers... but I'm still not sure I quite understand what I'm supposed to be doing exactly. Could definitely benefit from a tutorial or just explanation at the beginning. Really enjoyable though even if I'm guessing half the time, great job!

Hm, you don't seem to have uploaded an executable for Open Platforms (eg Linux). Could you do that?

Developer(+1)

Thanks for notifying me. 

I uploaded and saved everything in the last second (3 AM) and totally forgot to unlock the download. 

 I just built the Linux build before, had to get some sleep first. 

Strange that I already got 2 ratings without providing an executable file.
