Great job fitting all those data in a Pico 8 cart ! Very smooth scrool too. Meta jokes are heavy but well written, that was fun to read.

The chicken pulley reminds me of some Monkey Island weird objects like artificial anus. Great cold war graphics.

Great work! Love the aesthetic and the jokes and references! Could have used some moody music, but otherwise a wonderful entry! Wonderful tech for Pico8 too!

Really impressed that you managed to pull this off in PICO-8. Very satisfying sound effects and screenshake :P

The tech is strong in this one! Like seriously that's super impressive. Also pretty good point & click, I loved the meta jokes!
This is good!

Impressive use of PICO-8! I'm surprised you didn't choose to go for the dev-mode mouse input; I think having that at least as an option would have definitely made it feel more like a point-and-click.

The actual puzzle design wasn't particularly great (it got a little bit pixel-hunty) but I'm sure the tech side of things is what you were focused on anyway :)

Great job getting so much into such a little cart! I loved the humor and the narrative. So many paintings... Regardless, great job!
