I’ve played bot programming simulation games in that vein! Real-time is much harder though, you cannot just tweak the move duration with numbers (if you’re interested just search joqlepecheur, he makes a lot of puzzle/meta games).
I feel there’s a joke on a failing exit screen that forces you to Alt+F4, but not everybody may appreciate if they don’t know how to do that? Unless there’s another way to close the app? (I was looking for it, but the exit screen was completely stuck, pressing any key didn’t even send me to the main menu - just like in-game where sometimes pressing a key would not start the timer - so I had no choice but to Alt+F4)
