  • I really dug this one! 

    I think this could totally be expanded out into a larger game, and I think it really sells the theme! (Though the "What went wrong" part of the theme could have been elaborated upon better. 

    I really like the way the game teaches by showing without forcing the player to read through tutorials or explanations. It felt really on-theme and the game's sound and aesthetic really worked together for the whole experience. Very strong showing!

  • Neat idea, solid execution, art is just simple enough for you to be able to pull off a lot of fairly complex scenarios.

    Reminds me a lot of Inside and Limbo with a bit of Abe's Oddysey thrown in. I want to know more about this universe and see new scenarios using these mechanics.

    Great work!
