Blek inspired? That's the vibe I'm getting from those screenshots

No, not inspired by Blek. The game was inspired by my cat believe it or not. She has a toy that is pretty much a string on a stick and I noticed how hard it was to get it to loop and coil the way I wanted to. I thought it could be a fun game mechanic for an avoider style game so I made a small prototype.

It was pretty fun to make and it is my first game so its cool to see the response without doing any kind of marketing.

Update:

I have created a trailer for this game.

Is the gameplay similar to blek? It's a but unclear as to what it is that needs to be done to complete the puzzles from the screen shots, do you make the image symmetrical? Or are you to hit all the dots with your line? I'll most likely pick it up as it looks like the minimal stuff I enjoy at the moment.

Is there a trailer or gameplay footage anywhere? I'm not really grasping how the game works from the screenshots, probably why I overlooked it as a "Blek-like"

Hmmmm. Looks very blek like. I'm not sure if this is a clone or anything but I bet we will start seeing them and they will be free to play. Blek got pretty high on the paid charts and I bet someone will rip it off like they did to threes.

I so hope this works. I dunno how to embed yet so so here's the link. I think.

It's not a clone of blew but has a feeling of blek if that makes sense. You control a piece of string and the aim is to drag it to form a closed loop around pegs. It starts simple but by level ten it gets challenging due to a mixture of new elements such a pegs that kill you if touched and the fiddliness of trying to see where you are moving when the pegs get smaller. It's kind of a mixture of path drawing with a blek take on it. I'm enjoying it and am glad I bought it. The instructions could be a bit clearer as once the initial levels are completed you're left left to figure out the new elements yourself yourself but it isn't difficult to do so . I'll happily gift to one of you if you're in the UK.

Wow! Great video and explanation. It's nice to see that it's not a blek clone. I don't think I have ever seen a game like this. I would love a gift but unfortunately I live in the US. It's super kind of you to even offer that.
