Leave Black Alone! - df458 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

When I saw the theme, I spent quite a while thinking. In the end, I think I've created something very different from most entries. Instead of making a game where something IS alone, I decided to make one where something wants to be left alone. I also imagine that not too many people made puzzle games...

When playing this game, be sure to check all of the text at the bottom. It contains hints and instructions. There may be a few bugs that I missed, but I was able to play it through to the end without finding any. Unless told otherwise, you only need to use the left mouse button.

You'll need Game Maker to check out the source, and some stuff requires the registered version.

No audio I could hear under wine but other than that a fantastic interpretation of the theme with excellent realization.

Best puzzle game I've played in the competition yet. Everything just works...

Seriously this entry makes me feeling envy. How can someone come up with a unique and original puzzle game in 48 hours and make levels for it?
But really this is so cool. Only complaint is that the lacking of levels, which I know it is not possible to create quality puzzle levels in so little time(maybe you can save some time from the story :) ). But the whole mechanism is so fun and easy to understand.
Really polished game, need more levels!

Good puzzle game. But the sounds are very annoying.

The gameplay is clever. Now sounds and slow animation could be annoying. It is still a good puzzle!
