builds fine on linux, also untitled is a really weird binary name, but i'm quite happy to see another C programmer

the AI in this is quite nice, and this game seems quite AI centric, dunno about giving a 5th star but this really could do with 4

it's kinda blandish with respect to fun... if only the player moved faster, then it would have at least 3 stars

theme isn't done incredibly well but at least you can pick up and throw which is how i interpreted it

ah yes, graphics. fairly minimalistic but i love the way they bounce and i love that pop so much that i'm going to give you a fourth star, if only i could give you 4.5

no audio so N/A

doesn't look like you've attempted humour so also N/A

overall the game is interesting but slow, i'll give you 3 stars anyway

community bean-spilling is quite extensive, i'm not sure if you did a time lapse or a livestream but you have done a very good job without it, so here's 4 stars for that

Runs under wine. Not sure exactly what the mechanic is here. I move the square around and pick up a circle, and then I can throw it, and depending on which way the arrow keys are set it seems to bounce along an invisible line in that direction. I don't see what the L thingies are for, and the circles don't really seem to move in any sort of intelligent pattern that I can discern. Maybe I'm missing something?

Alright, so I've decided...

The name of this game is actually "Squibble Tea Party".

The Squibbles want to invite the Whomp to their tea party, but the Whomp isn't fond of that idea because Squibbles tend to get excited and explode in groups.

I like the stark visual style. The physics seemed absurd until I realized how the world was oriented.

Interesting engine but there wasn't much to hold my attention once I solved the puzzle of how to play.

The Windows link was a 404. You might want to fix that.
