Let's go in the kitchen and make a game.

Pencil Rebel is a little bitty point-n-click interactive adventure hand-wired with LEDs and simple circuit boards, and made with hand-cut and decorated cardboard, plasticine, string, and other household odd and ends. The artist, Grzegorz Kozakiewicz, has also made a (with spoilers!) video showing his process.

Fun game - the "boss battle" thing was a bit weak but that in no way overshadows the amazing effort put forth to make this. And it was all for under 200 pounds...

Okay, I'm stuck on the very first screen.

I moved the brussel sprouts, a hole opens up in the floor, and then nothing happens. The door's still locked, and the guy's just standing there, and nothing else seems clickable. What am I missing?

Is this a "hunt the pixel" kind of deal?

No, no pixel hunting. Is the guy standing over the hole? Maybe start over?

Yeah, he's just standing there. Tried again from the beginning, same result; must be a bug.

Oh well. The screenshots are pretty.

Fun! And not too hard.

I can't find all of the secrets. One seems to be missing. Think it should show up just before the screen containing the moose, but I haven't found anything to click on to make it appear.

If you like the game you should really give the video a try. It's really great.

Very cute!

I think, though, that Towers of Hanoi needs to be put next to The Goddamned 15-Puzzle on the list of puzzles for game designers to please, please not use any more.
