~Wake up my little routine.
~Your co-routines had failed for unknown reasons.
~You have to clean up the RAM.
~There's a lot of garbage in our sector.
~Me must meet you.
~You need love..
~Me love you...
~Tru5t m3... m3 l0v3 y0u....


This is NOT really a horror game. Maybe a bit creepy (if you follow the story... or if you ever find the story in the damaged data garbage?! πŸ€”)... There are no jump scares... really not. I think it's mostly a peaceful game... exept you discover a lost digital soul...😬  run or die!



I've created this short experimental game by using the (now stable) framework, which i've programmed for my game Polymerikum.  If you run into technical problems, feel free to contact me (Discord, SupportEmail or here on itch.io).

Itch.io is NOT my pre-Steam testing area.

This is an experimental game... a free game... made for Itch.IO !

Story:
You're a programm (a so called garbage-collector) that finds hidden messages from other programms in the data garbage. Also messages from an entity that seems to be interested in you.


Play time: ~ 15-30 mins. 
Feel free to tell me what you think about it.

This was so cool. Is there an alternate ending (possibly involving that control panel over the pit), or is it just that not completing the game is the "good" ending, and the subroutine stays safe?

Thank you very much for playing. Amazing! You're a master-decryptor! πŸ‘ You even decrypted messages that I couldn't decipher myself now πŸ˜¬ .. and you absolutely got the point about the story. There are just these two options at the end...1) get eaten...2) or exit game. 
~ME LOVES YOUR GAMEPLAY VIDEO~ πŸ˜†πŸ‘Œ
Have a nice day 😎

A superb little piece. The aesthetics pleased me to the highest degree. One day maybe I'll also make a cyberpunk-ish game!

Thank you very much for playing πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ€©. I'm really happy that you liked it because... ahhhm πŸ™„... 
... i'm too shy to say it but ... 😢
damn! 😬
...Ok fuck it:
It was your game \spek.takl\ that inspired me to try creating some pixelatet stuff and I am really satisfied with the result. ❀😁

So thank you for the 'inspiration' and have a nice day! πŸ‘

We inspire each other now. This is the best possible creative relationship! :)
Keep up the great work, and I'll keep feeding on it!

this is amazing, and very unsettling (which makes it awesome!!!). Also I saw the messages from another person? trying to warn me and telling me to run away, very nice detail!! this game should be waaaaay more popular!!

i need this soundtrack? ambience? whatever you like to call it =D i need it!!!

What exactly? The background ambience? I create most stuff with my good old Korg and Yamaha Synthesizers. But there are also some good Software Synths (free software too) you can use for your gamemusic production. Just tell me, if you need info or help with that. 😊

yeah!! thanks please do give some basic info on those programs!!

DarkWaveStudio and LMMS (Linux) are good and free Midi-DAWs to use VST instruments and there are a lot of free VSTs available on many sites... google: delamar.de, free-vst-plugins-800 .. it's in german but i think google will translate the site πŸ˜ƒ ... at least Audacity (a great AudioEditor)

thanks so much!! i do have audacity but will look into  the german tool, thanks!!

Great πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜  Yes, you absolutely got the point, there are hidden messages trying to warn you, but "the thing" wants you to clean them away. I hope the game find its way to some more players who love that kind of games... it was made with love 😍.
Thank you very much for playing. πŸ‘

no problem!! it was so much fun to play!!

Wow! I've just finished playing and I have to say that this was a visually stunning and quietly superb piece of art. The pixelated cyber aesthetic was amazing and it coupled quite nicely with the neon and glare effects. Is it System Shock inspired? I loved the ending. I really like how you used awkward syntax in the text to try and capture how a supercomputer might try and communicate human emotion.

This was a genuinely very cool game. My only complaint is that the mechanics of getting the doors to open are not exactly intuitive and in one case required a lot of trial and error, but it's otherwise an amazing experience and I've added it to my 'gems' collection. 

Thank you so much for making this!

Amazing! 😁 Thank you very much for playing and for your reply. And of course thanks for trying it again and playing to the end. I'm really relieved, because now i know that the meaning found it's way to you (did i say that right?! πŸ€”) and hopefully also to other players. You got the awkward syntax and saw the hidden stuff and that's great πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘Œ. I used the first "get out of the start-room" thing to let the player understand how to open doors, but you complaint is important. Maybe i should add one more clue. And yes, i agree that the last thing may be a bit hard. Anyway, thanks again and have a nice day/night/morning/evening 😎

Edit:
PS: I think it was more inspired by all the tronesque and neon art of the 80s. I just made the grafics the way i like it.

Hi Ravee! I'm trying to play meloveyou but I'm a little bit stuck. I can't find any more data cubes to progress past the section with the three beacons. I've even mapped out the whole area on paper just to make sure I haven't missed anything! Is there something obvious I am missing? 

(+1)

Yes, If you mean the three beacons at the big flickering stream tube: Collect the data from the second (middle) beacon and insert it in the terminal-computer in the same room. That makes the stream spin about 90Β°deg and lets you go through it at the door that leads to the side of the stream tube. Something similar will happen one time again in the game. Hope this helps.

Wow I really like this game! There was this eerie vibe to it and the art style felt very fitting. Keep up the good work :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

Thank you very much for playing πŸ‘ glad to read you liked it.
Yes i already heard/read about GDWC on FB, but i don't think that my little experiment here would have any chance for such a game competition. I think it's too niche... typical itch.io stuff. 😊 maybe my other game, i'll think about it. 

(+1)

Well any game is welcome to join :D But yes, if you have any other games feel free to submit you can also submit more than one game to the competition :)

The maze of the game much like the Tron of 1982, but with more glitches that the virus that leaves you paralyzed if you go on a motorcycle XD:

I don't understand who directs the messages where they say "I'll Help You" or "Me Love You", it seems to say it as love with himself.

At first, thanks for playing 😊and thank you for your feedback πŸ‘. Those things and thoughts are important to me. So the messages with that ~ME IS / DO / WANT... or whatever~ are messages from another entity (talking in it's own strange kind)... they are not from the character the player controls. Did you play to the end? Did you meet the huge 'lovely' entity? πŸ€”

Not yet, I find it difficult to collect all the cubes to access other areas.

Do you think it's fair or too difficult?  It's not easy to find a balance for everyone so i would be glad to know your thoughts if its okay ☺
