keep your little ingrate extant for as long as you care to, my lord
For a few hours now, the title and apparent concept of this game have been too terrifyingly close to my idea of actual life for me to bring myself to play it. I'll let you know if I ever manage.
I know how you feel!
The game is great, though. Good choice to make the program just close instantly instead of having a game over screen or something.
After a while I feel like I'm performing CPR on the mouse or something.
maybe you could've added more messages but it was fine as it was i guess
I was too lazy to run Lua scripts on linux, so instead i read the code, and ran the game in my brain.
It was good.
Then I felt guilty, and actually installed Lua, which gave me the following message:
lua: ./main.lua:19: attempt to index global 'love' (a nil value)
I burst into tears.
After some searching i realised that i didn't have love installed. Which made me think about my life, inducing further tears.
I went to love2d website and tried downloading the package, but one dependency was not satisfiable: liblove0
So i realised there was a link to liblove on the site, and now i installed both! Now I can finally play it!
It gave me the following message:
I'm guessing love doesn't really exist and is just an idea that's there to taunt us? Was that the point of your game? If so then, bravo sir
i think you have to run the "love" executable, so "love existing.love". The guides I've read on distributing love games said that that's the way to do it for linux, but it seems wack huh. If I figure out how to package the entire executable I'll do that next time.
oh sweet it works now
Cool! This one feels cool because of the existential narrative behind it. I posted a game just now as a reaction to what I thought the game was going to be before playing the game by just reading the comments and realizing what I thought it was and what is is are two different games.
Ooooh, is that what 0 is supposed to be? I thought it was broken, but now it's kind of interesting. It's a bare minimum- a game stripped down to existence, and nothing else!
