It's V-Day....eat my butt. LOL...

I'm at day 12 so far, and I don't know if I past all the hard stuff, yet! I love the challenge, it's like a memory game! I appreciate the effort on making this so realistic.

Good fresh spin on the great little pixel based game "Papers Please" more suited for the modern political climate.

If anyone thoroughly enjoyed this little game, I'd strongly suggest checking out 'Papers Please' which this game seems inspired by. All in all a great game and an impressive make for 48 hours ^^Can't wait to see your future larger projects!

It's well designed and fun, has a good amount of challenge.
And everything about the policies - it's painfully realistic, so I can feel its connection to our world. Which is the whole point right...

So it's properly done in the Fun department and the Realistic department. What more can you ask? :-) Pretty sweet result for a GGJ game!

I got confused about the policies at level 6. and it would have been nice to restart from that level. Also, I would appreciate a bit more time (or a pause post-level) to read the in-level emails that I always dismiss as the game constantly pushes more clients. Other than that, I thought it was great.

Cool and fun game - liked the gameplay mechanics taken from Papers Please with a bit of a political spin on it. I found myself sweating (and really enjoying it) at one point when I had like 3 different conditions going through and was expecting more and then all of a sudden (from day 8 or 9 onwards) it had the same conditions and was very easy. Still, considering this was a 48 hour game, had a good time playing it!
