Google Chrome has a built-in Flash Player, and ever since the new update causes a sound glitch to happen. Before the update, it never occurred, yet it's the SAME file. Honest. Newgrounds has also noted other problems with the new Chrome update regarding Flash: /bbs/topic/1265535
So... you might want to use a different browser until Google fixes this, unless they're too busy figuring out what the hell to do with G+ now.

EDIT: Issue seems to be fixed now. I did nothing.

Mind-bending, Space-rending, and Completely Innocent Creature's Life-ending.

In this negative-space puzzle game, you'll drag around holes, fall through walls, and bring myriads of miniature Monsters to madness.

Say you sadistically hunger for more levels, or you just detest the levels I've made. That's fine, you can play negative-space puzzles created by other Newgroundians! And you too, can make your own.

Use the Level Creator to design your very own puzzles, and share them with a cold uncaring world. More Monsters to torture, for the good of everyone else!

Think outside the box, fellow monsters.

Fun... until my comp crashed.

Honestly, I liked the game. It was interesting, and there were many ways of beating a level, even if you didn't get the star point, if you manipulated the game enough. I thought that aspect was appealing, because often times in math there's more than one way to do things also, and those ways aren't necessarily wrong either. I love puzzle games, so combined with the ease of the controls (click + drag,) cute graphics and catchy little tune, I thought it was pretty entertaining.

My biggest peeve is that (as far as I know) your progress isn't saved? I was on one of the last few levels, and my computer froze, so I had to restart. Lost all my progress, as well as all motivation to beat the game. If you could add a save feature, or better yet and automatic save-feature, I would have liked the game better. Sometimes people can't just sit down and beat 45 levels all in a row.

Nutcasenightmare responds:

There IS an automatic save feature!

Everything autosaves: Level progress, Which GapWorld levels you've played, even the Level Creator.

I've no idea why it didn't work for your computer, though...

this is cute, and pretty addictive. i lol'd when i first heard the monster get killed.

PS: i tried to load some user levels and it doesn't work. just loads the red menu bar on the left, which flashes continuously.

Nutcasenightmare responds:

Yes, I've noticed that glitch. Ironically, that glitch appeared when I wanted to add something that was a lot, lot less serious.

And just as I was about to fix that, the Update Waiting Period kicked in. :(
So, it has already been fixed, and the update's on the way!

:-/ but they're cute little guys

I love the mechanic. I just wish you didn't have the cute little guys look/sound so gross when you win.

Nutcasenightmare responds:

Yeah, they're pretty gross.
I shouldn't have based them off human faces.
Humans are pretty gross.

Game crashed

The game crashed and killed my save progress T_T

Nice game, while it lasted though.
Amusing death sounds, and quite challenging puzzles!

Nutcasenightmare responds:

Oh, well that sucked.
No one else seemed to have that problem, but in any case, hopefully not too much was lost, because the game auto-saves along the way!

And if it didn't, the universe might be teaming up against you.
I know, I have first-hand experience in being teamed up against by universes.
