Thanks so much for playing!  You're right - I probably should link to poker rules - it's a good idea for the next version / update.  Hope y'all enjoy!

I'd love to submit this game: https://jackschlesinger.itch.io/shift

That did the trick!  Thanks so much!

What do I need to do to get a game I'm an admin and collaborator on onto my creator page?  I can't figure it out!

I know this is a prototype, but I think your name could be more expressive of the content I'm going to experience.  Names are an essential way we interact with media, and coming up with even a functional name ("Switch Material SeeSaw") is valuable design work, which will give your audience a good idea of what you're trying to convey, and internally give you a way of referring to the game without "ownership" - "this is XX's prototype".  I'd challenge you to come up with a more creative name that just a functional one. 

Your itch window is too large, making it difficult to playtest.  I don't think I understand the significance of "You Lose, Libtard" upon leaving the boundaries of the screen.

I would challenge you to do hard design work, rather than focusing on creating the idea digitally.  This prototype alongside "here's five puzzles that could exist with this prototype" is valuable work if you're less strong as a programmer.

This core idea is very solid, but I agree that your creative challenge asks for an interrelation between the various things you're using in your game.  I think picking three primary colors and using any colors that are between them uses up all of the constituent colors, for example, or restoring one color means giving up some of a different color, etc., etc..

It is very easy to make the game reset itself if the player is below a certain Y-value.  This kind of quality-of-test changes are important to identify and add to prototypes that are going out into the world - they show polish as a designer.

The fire puzzle is difficult because of the way your implementation works, not because of a legitimate player challenge - it was long after I knew what I had to do that I was able to do it, and it wasn't based on learning a skill.

Difficult decision tree - took me three hours to get to both endings!
