Just a heads up your download link isn't working. I get a "We couldn't find your page" error.

Hey Elys, thank you! I was just setting up my page in advance. The download page isn't ready yet.

Cool game. Not entirely sure what happened in the very last part but I really liked how real the room felt.

Great use of the theme too.

Neat twist. It turns out that I have a really foul mouth when I talk to in-game bots, though.

Dec 12, 2016 @ 6:21pm

this was totally weird..

I hope the ingame-games aren't representative of what ludum dare will have to offer ;)

I am also not 100% sure the error that was encountered at the end was intentional? Too meta for me maybe.

(It started glitching, a private chat was going on and then it encountered a fatal error)

Overall: a very nice game with a very nice twist on the theme.
Innovation: I didn't see a game based on chatting in a chatroom. 5/5. Perfect!
Theme: 5/5 for a very nice twist on the theme.
Graphics: 5/5. Simple and fitting. Each "user" has its own graphics style, so another point for you!
Audio: Chatroom sounds are nice, but games could use a bit of sound.
Mood: Hey, you nailed this perfectly! And that virus file at the end. (spoiler: <3.exe) 5/5

A great twist on the theme!

You captured the mood of a chatroom perfectly, and the various elements played really well together - although the the ending was a bit unexpected. The game also felt really polished, e.g. the different profile-pictures for each user, and the small "mini-games".

An excellent game!

Didn't understood but the idea was pretty cool

Mr. Mullins, you are a maestro of self-aware gaems. This is the first time I'm giving 5 stars in each category.

The Linux build crashes X for me (apparently it attempts to create an absurdly huge window), so I had to use Wine.

Just got done playing it myself and still don't get the ending. Also, no means no, but these downloads just keep spamming me!

Although I still think this could have done very well in humor if you didn't add that particular chat in the end :P

Oh pretty cool entry, it was pretty interesting. Love your theme interpretation and the twist.
