Happy Klickmas, mr._a ! I made a game for you. I hope you enjoy it. :)

Her Universe is a mouse-driven puzzle, where you use trial-and-error to assemble the pieces of a mixed-up story. Lots of audio recordings and a search on YouTube for strange atmospheric sounds made this one a lot of fun to make. I went out of my comfort zone for this one.

mr._a's wishlist included:
A.

i will live forever
the universe makes sense
there is hope
i can hear a body gouging at the wall and shrieking
i hope they bring wine!

B.

in lieu of air, a thick pudding

D.

[REDACTED]
the comfortable warmth of pissing slowly down one trouser-leg

X. CIRCLE ANYTHING: ALL / SOME / NONE / MIX & MATCH / WERE YOU INSPIRED? RUN WITH IT! YOU ARE YOUR OWN [QRV]. NEVER STOP

Can't wait!

Want to get out from under my own unfinished entry (the bellowing ghosts of klikmas past/present etc) before I play this, but it sounds very palatable indeed! Looking forward to playing!

Hah, a warm reward for

Hah, a warm reward for persistence!

Reminds me of a mix of mastermind & story cubes. Enjoyed the audio approach, mish-mash of moods & concepts.

Thanks!

I really loved this! You did

I really loved this! You did a great job with the interface, with the audio, with the concept and challenge. I didn't beat it, but I'm going to replay again in the future. The mood set up was quite strong. I have a feeling you put quite a bit of time into it, and I like that you used Clickteam. It felt like Her Story or other game that uses previous footage/audio recordings. Mysterious and dark feeling too. Great work.

Compiler Error

I'd wanted to make one small change to the game, but the compiler is having issues with it for some reason. If I ever have it working correctly I will update the game description with the news.

EDIT: FIXED.
