This was my submission for the GMTK 2020 Game Jam, a 48-hour game making competition. The theme for this year's jam was "Out of Control". This is a short game that can be beaten in under 10 minutes. It is worth playing to the end! Please feel free to leave criticism and suggestions for future improvements!

Web version playable at Newgrounds. (I couldn't figure out how to upload a web version through itch. It's OK. I found it now. I'm smart.)
