That game was really something special to me. It had a strange connection to the games of the fictional game developer Coda in "The Beginner's Guide" by Davey Wreden for me; I guess it's because it also features a character who is obsessed with the focus on one type of games, in that case "Snake". It was absolutely wonderful to become a part of this odd world - or even the mind? - of a programmer. Not just that you let us play their game, but also being able to code and manipulate it. It's a stunning amount of work that you must have put into it, and I can just tip my hat for that! That's why it was one of my favorite entries of the whole Ludum Dare 38 (and oh, by the way, congratulations for the 41st place, even though it would have deserved a better rating in my opinion :) ), and because of that I didn't just wrote a recommending article about it and uploaded a playthrough video, but also included it in our GOTY 2017 list. Great job, seriously. Looking forward to your future projects. <3

Best wishes,

Hi, Congratulations on the first place in LD 38 innovation.
I have a MAC and when running it is giving this message: "Missing directory 'COMPUTERS'!" , If you need more information just ask!

Dang. Is there a directory "computers" next to the .app?

Yes, in directory have 5 files, bridge, exam, learn, schlangenspiel, test.

I don't really know what the problem is then. :-( Does it work when you move the "computers" folder into the .app?

Nop, I try all the permissions and I switch to application folders too, but nothing! I do not know where the application needs to find the directory.

The app finds the folder either directly in the same directory, or inside the .app - if it doesn't work I really don't know what is happening. I just removed the dust from my old Mac and tried the .app myself, and it works without any modifications. :-/ Sorry!




I completed the game :)


carcass is proud of you!


Pretty fantastic! Amazing!
