Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

One of my ideas was around a mailroom as well, but it was not as cool as this :) - very much like the gameplay. Some of the controls are understandably a bit fiddly.

Loved it but the use of a ramp conveyor that went over belts would have been a helpful improvement

*Looks at my game DAMN. Good work man!, I wish there was a way to tunnel or bridge belts.

Cool game. Might need more conveyor options for when they need to cross.

Graphics are great, it gets very complicated very fast, but i guess thats the point :)

There's no penalty for losing mail, which I guess is good, because later waves had crazy amounts of different coloured mail scattered everywhere and I ended up destroying a lot of packages by removing their conveyor belts.

I think this is a good idea for a game, but the networking system could use some extra touches here and there. Maybe an ability to stop the mail for a brief period of time in an effort to reroute? :P One thing I do like about the gameplay mechanics, though, is the ability to click and drag to place multiple tiles in a row at once. That was very efficient!
