Lol, nicely done on the 3d translation.

Not much of the game (or at least I couldn't find much to play with), but a cool take on the comic nonetheless!

Developer

Thanks! You're right, the game is too short. I totally wish I added more.

A 3d game version of the comic it's based on--I like it! :) You replicate the style very well in 3d, and I also like how you put the comic in the game itself to sort of explain the joke for those who won't understand right away.

No music.  Maybe this game doesn't really need it--but it would've probably made the time machine stuff clear if there was music, though, and the track playing restarts whenever the player goes back in time.  Just one way you could have explained the joke clearer.  The sound effect for the time travel is a good one, as is the switch and plug sound--well chosen!

A simple game, but a nice one.  Good work on this. :)

Thanks for the review! The music track idea is very neat.

Hilarious!

Neat style although short it still proves its point I really like how the comic is behind you so only when the switch doesn't work you turn to reveal the answer! Anyway one thing I do want to mention is I'm doing a review of design on the games in this jam so here's a shameless plug to my channel if you want to be notified of the vid when released: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7Vj46GGL9VMUvd4YTMtjXg

Cool stuff, I like videos about game design.

My XKCD game jam analysis is out!

Developer

Great video! I hope you will do more of these in the future!

The best way to help guarantee that is with subs ! So  Sharing this video would be great !

You got it. I retweeted it.

Great work, and you nailed the style when translating into 3D

Thanks rjp!
