Looks to be PC only.

Although this sounds as unappealing as ratemypoo dot com, can people please note the Windows-only-ness of such things to save everyone else's time? Thanks.

See. Not just me.

JLHTP doesn't look compelling, although maybe it has good gameplay. But I'm glad to be reminded of CP because I bet that runs under Wine!

What's the general feeling around MeFi of Advergaming?

We'll complain about it, but still play if it's any good.

So, just like literally everything else on the web.

I can't play this right now. at work on a mac, but when I get home I'm going to try it. It looks cool as hell. thanks for this.

also, what are the chances of people who think there should be a PC tag added to games posts just memailing either the OP or a mod? would this be a decent solution? i kind of hate it when the first 5 comments in a thread are about this.

Hey! I played this game! I played it for about 45 minutes .. then it got too difficult and I gave it up.

I absolutely loved crayon physics though.

This site lists other "physics-based games", which I enjoy much more than any other type.

It needs a button to roll the paper in. After the third time of swinging like Tarzan for over a minute to pull in paper on the other side of a ledge, I lost interest.

This is actually kind of cute, but gets boring pretty quickly. The physics are pretty well done, though I would have hoped for the TP to rip if you pull it too taut.

I'd think that it would be obvious that games don't on on macs or linux.

Ya, I just got bored after a few minutes... But, the programming, was pretty slick.

Oddly, at the end of the game it said I was worth 7 goats.

Hey mac people, please learn to virtualize.

This game is rad.

It seems like the kind of game that would translate to flash well. Then i would be a bit more excited.

The gameplay reminds me of Umihara Kawase, except with a somewhat sloppy cleanup. Commenter above wrote "It needs a button to roll the paper in", that's one of the most satisfying elements of Umihara Kawase.
