    Woot, I'm glad you liked it! Admittedly, it's very different from what we were intending to make: on the last day NewButtermilk added in the screams when people aren't standing on the platter, which resulted in such an excessive amount of hilarity that we spent the rest of the time just building on that.

    The first true wat I've encountered in #23 games :D
    Not sure if it is game, but it is something.

    Full marks for innovation - I've never seen *anything* quite like that before! Loved the screaming sfx too,. Are you supposed to be keeping everything on the platform or off it though?

    Love the screaming SO MUCH.

    Hilarious! There's not much challenge it seems, in fact, waiting seems to keep people more alive than meteoring them. But what's the fun in that?
