Bad Bike Ride

I had forgotten I made this game. You probably can't tell from playing it now, but there are a lot of unpleasant feelings attached to this game for me. I made it the day of my grandmother's funeral. Losing my last remaining grandparent made the weight of never getting to see any of them ever again hit really hard, and made the dread of losing more loved ones became that much more real.

I honestly don't remember if I had any particular symbolism or message in mind when I made this. Hopefully it's interesting as an artifact of a time when I was super angry/frustrated/sad at a universe that will take people you love away from you. The description I gave it at the time was
"No win state. No fail state. You can keep on keeping on or you can stop."

This game was part of Klik of the Month Klub #57.
