Obsessive Compulsive Disorder oriented puzzle game. Yes, I know that you think all puzzle games are OCD oriented… You will change your mind after seeing this.

Features include:

* Obsession!!! * Compulsion!!! * Disorder!!!

The premise of my game is this, to put it in TBDPE terms: You have OCD. Go. The following game description may vary slightly from what I actually had time to implement. More specifically, you play the unfortunate OrorO (pronounced: “oo roo roo”) who suffers from severe OCD. And now your enemies for some reason (the intricate plot was going to be detailed in the ReadMe, but I ran out of time) are placing you in a series of horrible chambers of disorder! Everything is in disarray! The Boxes are scattered all over and there are cracks in the floor tiles! Crikey, mate!

* Your goal: arrange the Boxes into symmetrical patterns, by way of pushing. * Your caveats: The anxiety meter rises just by spending time in the room. The anxiety meter rises when you step on cracks. The anxiety meter rises if you don’t do everything in multiples of three. The anxiety meter is the worst reality-based personal trait to break into gaming since the oxygen meter. * Your remedy: A prescription drug which I dare not name because it may be a registered trademark and therefore will be referred to as “benzo.” Poppin’ benzos will keep your anxiety meter down. Of course, don’t forget to take them in multiples of three. Oh, and your tolerance will go up causing the medication to affect you less and less with time. Basically: Move with arrow keys. Push boxes into symmetrical pattern before time runs out. Don’t step on the lines. If you feel done, press return to zero the timer. Pop benzo with space bar. Pushing, popping, wrapping and also invalid moves should be repeated in multiples of three, or your anxiety will go up. So like if you wrap around the screen, you have to go back once and then wrap again. (It does suck to have OCD.)
