I don't wanna give away too much but this game is gonna use a window manager as a framing device. What's depicted here is the basic UI of the game. I'm trying to go for that nostalgic Windows XP sorta feel, at first I was trying to get perfect feature parity with Windows (I was amazed at how much I knew about the little nuances of how Windows' windows work), but I've decided it's too much work to get it perfect when really I just need it Good Enough (TM).

I'm open for ideas for names, my working title is "Windows Adventure" which isn't that great and I kinda don't want "Windows" in the title. The in-universe OS name I'm going with for now is "Wonders NX" but I'm not exactly married to that either.

Any ideas for a title? Also feedback or whatever? I know there isn't much game here but I don't want to start making the game until I have all the systems locked in where I want them to.

Title Ideas.  Task Manager (Not Responding)  ,   Vista 95 XP,   Interface Manager, Wonders in the Machine

Gonna put some strong consideration on "Wonders in the Machine." Thanks!

I always really love ideas like these. I don't really have a suggestion for you, just wanted to give my support :)

Lots of good work today, I now have a system for putting buttons on the screen and they look sufficiently windowsy. What better way to test my buttons than a settings menu? :)

Here's a sneak peak into what this game is all about.

Hmm, seems interesting. Looking forward to it :)

Woah this is such a cool concept! :O

WARNING: SPOILERS

This literally spoils almost an entire puzzle, but I think it's the best way to show what's going on in this game. :)

Looks really cool and great sound effects.

Aaaand posted! This might be the final version, I'm not sure yet. Still have 7 days until the jam ends so we'll see.
