took way longer than expected

This game... oh boy. It took me way longer than I thought it would. It's such a simple idea, but making a bunch of little pictures, no matter how ridiculous they were, and then hacking them apart and turning them "invisible" is so unbelievably time consuming. I feel TIRED after making this game. I feel RELIEVED that I am finished making this game.

However, I do feel that the main mechanic is pretty interesting and I'd like to see somebody far more talented than I put it to use in a different genre.

Basically, you crawl around on the ground until you see a pile of litter. You crawl over the litter so your head is directly above it, and hit space bar. This takes a "photo" - really dumps a screenshot to your clipboard. From there you open your favorite graphics program and paste the "photo", then "develop" it by using the fill tool, free select, rotate tools etc. until it is visible and all pieced back together. Is it even worth your time? Who knows?????

I tried to make the atmosphere a little strange, and I guess part of the reason I put so much time in it is that "go around a screen until you find something and see what it looks like" is a little too thematically similar to my other game Bileview and I wanted to make it a bit more mechanically different than that.
