If you have implemented the modifier, how have you done so?
The game centers around the writing of seminal cyberpunk novel Neuromancer. ...sort of.

Any additional information for voters?
My first game jam! I hope I did so badly that it's good!

Very nice little game. Interesting take on the cyberpunk theme, and I liked the concept.

Gameplay is simple, but well executed. I like the sound effects, and the wonky background.

Really fun experience. Well done!

Liked it, it was short but fun. Learned about new author I might want to read as I'm in cyberpunk phase. Beat it at 2nd run. All in all well done!

If you're in a cyberpunk phase, DEFINITELY check out Gibson. Especially if you can put yourself in the mindset that he was writing this stuff in the '80s, it's really amazing how well he predicted so much of the world today.

Just in in-between point between being good and bad.

But not in a boring way ^^'

Short but sweet. The hit detection is slightly off, but other than that the gameplay was quite enjoyable. I found it pithy and I liked that it did have an ending rather than being a simple score attack. The art is simple, but it works, and I wish there was music, but it's not a big deal.

It feels really weird to apologize for saying this, but I thought this was quite good.
