I must say this is a unique game ahaha, its interesting. I wasnt sure how to use all the hands effective, most of the time i was just relying on hand to put the eyes in the garbage chute. Other than that pretty interesting

Haha, so weird! Definitely get points for creativeness. Love the surreal theme, too.

Very innovative concept - what I couldn't figure out though was why more than one hand is necessary? Also why does pressing C only work sometimes? Anyway, well done :)

seems like a neat idea. I was getting very strange drop in frame rate whenever moving one of the hands which made it unplayable (and a weird noise but that's likely to be the intended sound). not sure. I like the simple art style as well

The crab-with-six-extremely-long-arms-drops-eyeball-critters-into-the-garbage-chute-like genre is a little crowded these days, but there is something about this game that just makes me want to like it. Bravo.

That was... unexpected. And interesting. I agree with others here in that the many hands were not *useful*, but boy they were fun ^^

Weird and funny.. I couldn't control all those hands!

Pretty odd little game but good nevertheless. The controls were a little weird to start with but you get used to it. Good job!

Nice original Game! Hard to understand, I think that honour and the mood is weird so it is spot on. Keep going!

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
