This is easily one of the weirdest games I have played in a while and I love it! 

So here's one way to play it

Too many questions unanswered. Gonna play it right about now.

Already watched your gameplay! Thank yous o much for playing, we enjoyed your try on it :D



hah! You have to use your mousewheel. Did you figure it out? Hope so!

This was really cool and for three days this was really very good. All ran smoothly and had some great sounds and music. Superb job... :)
