A little puzzle game for the GameOff 2022 gamejam.
The theme was cliche, and we decided to go with the phrase
"Elephant in the room".
We also wanted to try PICO-8 as it seemed such a good engine!
Have fun!

Cute game, loving the graphics. Congrats on 4th overall. I noticed the elephant is only 4x the size of the mouse... either HUGE mouse or tiny elephant :P. Seriously thought, super fun, and love the music paired with it too. Played it live on stream for GitHub Game Off: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/171266055

Very fun! I love your take on the cliche you chose. I liked how each puzzle was fairly small, but packed a lot of unique mechanics inside. The difficulty curve and rate at which new mechanics were introduced was a good pace. I like the retro aesthetic :)

Hey, thank you very much!
I'm curious if you were able to finish the last few levels as well? (27-28)

Yes, I was able to do them. I'm normally not that great at puzzle games, but the puzzles had just the right amount of difficulty to make me think, but not get overwhelmed and give up. The level design is fantastic!

Absolutely brilliant level design and very fun!

Thank you! <3
