This is a really interesting

This is a really interesting take on the idea of making a zillion games!

Some things stood out to me:

  1. Oh my goodness, you actually manually titled every level, that's actually a ton of work in and of itself because naming is hard
  2. The swapped-out graphics actually have a surprisingly big impact on the feel of the level! You touch on this with some of the level names, but the thematic coherence and overall vibe kinda contribute a story to the level, and the titles flesh out those stories. So this is a pretty interesting experiment in sorta-economic storytelling.
  3. I liked the progression as you had to become more and more creative with the level titles as you approached 100. I don't think I understood most of the references.
  4. The background music is hella relaxing, I like that it doesn't just restart every time you go to the menu. I kinda wish it kept playing when you entered a game.
  5. Annette is my favorite character
  6. 90 and 91 have Merlin in the title, but feature Devil Dave -- I thought that was really interesting from a storytelling standpoint. You built a format, set expectations, and violated those expectations, and thereby made a joke that literally only you could make, and that's neat.
