A game by Joshua Stone
Created in 72 hours for the 44th Ludum Dare game jam

I apologize for the lack of music, sound effects, and ambiance; I usually put a lot of effort into audio, but this time I had to focus on the story and puzzles. You can expect an update to the game fairly soon that will polish up the experience. :)

Great promise, although lacking in content or story due to your 72 hour restraint, which is fine. Nothing near what it could be, but I applaud that you made the whole thing in 72 hours. Well done.

I really liked this, wish it was longer tho.

Criobite responds:

Thanks! I'll be doing a "remastered" version of this game jam entry that's a little longer and a lot more polished very soon!

A fun game! The puzzles were a little simpler than I was expecting, but challenging enough to be enjoyable without being frustrating, so I thought it was a good level of difficulty. I was a little confused about the entry point thing at first before I found the chat with Red, which was really my own fault for not checking all of the windows.

The story was interesting, I thought, if not especially involved for probably obvious reasons.

Criobite responds:

Thank you, glad you like it! In the "remastered" version I'll be doing soon, I'll make sure to subtly guide the player a little better. I'll also be adding some more minor events in the story, since it feels a little unevenly paced at the moment. :)

Pretty good. I like the idea and the function of each node is pretty clear. The main issue is that if you get stuck in a loop you have to close the window and reopen it.

EDIT: While I was writing this I realised that eventually, the loop stops. Might want to add a reset button anyway.

Criobite responds:

Thanks for playing! You can actually stop the run by clicking the start node again, but I'll definitely make it more obvious in the "remastered" version of the game.

The game is ok, love this type. But I'm not sure it matches the theme completely

Criobite responds:

Hey, glad you think it's at least alright, it was definitely highly experimental. I definitely get that it doesn't strictly follow the theme, it's mostly just in the undertones of what the G.I.F. is involved with: selling people's private data.
