I choose death! I love everything about this game, except I guess for waiting for a stage to be over? I love the idea but honestly I felt completely out of control of my ultimate fate. Even with a route mapped in my head, brain control was tough, so everything felt either random, or a surprise. I never really felt like I could work towards success? Death seemed sudden, and unexpected, and would put me off having a second dink-a-round. This has the legs of a very fun game, but I think giving the player more lives, or a say in if eg a recycle causes a fresh drop, some small flow adjustments like that would help me a lot.

[x/p from thread] Love that title song, also I'm pretty sure I've heard some of that music before lol.  This is a fun one, quite a bit of content to it!  There's some pacing and balance issues (teleporting pretty much trumps everything, just eating it to a saw doesn't feel very fair) but it's fun trying to learn the systems.  I'm not sure if all the graphics/audio meshed for me but I did like all the playful touches.  Overall I like this one, as a toy it's satisfying to mess around with.

Interesting game and story. Liked the art style and thought it worked really well in setting the mood.
