It seems interesting, but I can't seem to reach the end. It just sort of stops after the picture task.

This game was fun! The graphics were nice, the music was enjoyable, I liked having to figure things out a bit. One suggestion, cut back a little on the little tasks and add more of the disobedient AI story. I played it to the end, and I did not want my owner to replace me with the new Kiwiphone, no way! I only wish it had more of the rogue computer story! Overall this was a fun play!

I had a great time with this game. Thanks for this. I was having a blast trolling the user making requests. Loved it.

This game was really interesting, I really liked the musics. At first, I was stuck at "find the cat image" then I show the screenshot on this website and I was like "Oooh, we can go here...".
And as PickleCrew said, I would have like to have more story and less tasks. And it seam that giving false informations doesn't do anything or it's only me ?

Are you kidding me?

Thanks to everybody who has played so far and left comments!

@PickleCrew, @Xwilarg: I agree that there should've been more narrative content! I originally planned to include a lot more, like little story moments in between tasks that would build up the rogue AI story and funny responses from the user when you input a wrong answer, but I ran out of time. Hoping to fix that in the future!

@misaghDroid: It's fine if you don't like what I made but you don't have to be an asshole about it. Just leave some constructive criticism like everyone else.

Things I liked: the stylized look - especially the world has a nice retro future look with interetesting pixel art.
The use of the theme - the overall idea and the way to interact with an AI. The zoom into the city miniature.
Things that annoyed me: The tediousness of the tasks and that you frequently didn't get any feedback. The tedious tasks and the fact you often had to stand at the exact right pixel in order to trigger something.
The music. The fact that the game was 190mb despite having very little content.
Would I like to play again? Not in the current state, but if it was continued and there was taken care especially of the triggering and posssibly more story - yes I would.

I couldn't figure out how to finish the game. Not a lot of content, but it was still pretty cute!

Interesting, it reminded me of a Black Mirror episode. I stopped at the cat picture because I couldn't find what to do. It is a bit disappointing that you cannot explore freely the room and can only access what the user asked.

But well done !

Mild quibble, but it doesn't count as "web" if you have to download it. It doesn't bother me personally, but I know a lot of people who play on Mac/Linux what have you and can get a bit salty about it not being web.

Really loved the art style and overall mood of the game. It was really interesting the way you played with the theme in this manner. Great work.
