I really liked this game. It's a cool concept, the graphics were nice, and the different characters/enemies in it were interesting. The main problem I had was that doors didn't work right a lot of the time. Sometimes I had to sprint into them for several seconds before they finally fly open, and sometimes they just wouldn't open at all unless I tried a few different times. It made the game really frustrating since running from enemies was impossible with broken doors, and I couldn't check rooms because I couldn't open doors just a little bit.

Oh boy did we have a great time with this one! I never thought something so bright and with such a grooved out beat could unnerve me as much as Shirokuma Maze did. I feel this is probably the most replayable game we've tried in the jam. Great job!

Really enjoyable game. The gameplay managed to feel unique while being easy to pick up and play. At the start I didn't think I'd have a chance, but I ended up beating it on my eighth try or so.  I don't think I'd be able to beat it on those difficulties I unlocked, though.

This is a very fun game! I like the visuals and music a lot. Penguins holding their phones were super creepy! When I first met polar bear I was like 'awwww' but I quickly changed my mind about them.

My god the penguins holding their phones to capture my inept search for coffee is somehow even scarier than the original Black Mirror episode, yet the whole thing is so cute overall – very nice!

Very fun game and very clever combination of several different shows! The graphics and audio are perfect together. I was finally able to get all 9 cups of coffee and enjoy the dancing polar bear at the end as a reward, I was very proud of myself!

Great job on this great game!

Ah, good old "find the way out of maze while running from polar bears with chainsaws" game. I think its a bit too hard with only a few "map screens" through the whole labyrinth.

What a cute little game! the gameplay is fun and music fits perfectly on the game. Unfortunately I couldn't found all of the coffee because the comb it's to large for me. Even there's a map but I always end up lost and got hug by the polar bear :D

Well done!

I really love this game! One of my favorite entries so far! Great aesthetics and sounds, they fit together perfectly. Knowing what this was based on and being greeted into the game by the cutest little penguins doing the thing from the episode was a laugh I wasn't expecting. It gets really tense once you've got nearly enough cups and can't stop running into bears and llamas (NANI?!).

Great job!!

Thanks for playing!

Nicely done, it's quite fun and addictive... just one more door, I'll make it this time *eaten by llama*! :D

Developer

Thanks :D the llama can be quite an ass!

I think it was great that this was surprisingly tense for something that looks cute. I think using a polar bears was a clever callback to the title of the inspiring episode.

Developer

Yes, glad you got that pun :D Thanks for playing!

Fun game, I could see it being played by youtubers/streamers.

Developer

Thanks, I do hope so, looking forward to some streams!
