I must say, you did manage to create a feeling of being completely puzzled :)

the ants are pretty gross. Nice modeling

Admittedly, it's hilarious. I couldn't figure out how to accomplish anything though; I tried putting pizza in the microwave, fridge and oven but they didn't seem to be too interested in that. Over all, nice work even though the gameplay didn't really seem to work.

Cool idea to lure the ants with food and gameify it. Managed to lure and kill a few of them in the fridge but who wants pizza when you can have cake haha! Anyway good work.

Strange game lol. I seemed to kill some in the oven I think. Maybe you should've had a score counting how many you've killed, or something, to give more of a sense of purpose.

I wish i could have understood what we really needed to do with the pizza slices. I tried to put them in a line so the ants follow them but they didn't want to eat that. I tried also to throw pizza slices to ants so they die. But they wont. xD Hard to figure it out, but hey, it was a good idea and possibly a good gameplay. Maybe this will need a little more tweaking 'cause they wont follow food at all for me xD (win version)
