I loved it. So much fun drawing pictures for socks. Very clever design and I actually like that you had a limited color pallet. This was such a fun experience in such horrid times.

I had so much fun with this game! I loved the different palettes and the vague directions that let me think outside of the box.



Hi! For the moment, this is only available as part of this GDC Relief Bundle here:


It's a pay-what-you-want bundle full of a ton of  great games, and all the money goes to support indie devs struggling due to event cancellations. In the future, the game will be available on its own, but for now, this is the only way to get it!


This is so adorable! It makes you all warm and fuzzy inside <3

Thanks so much! I just wanted to make something super positive for people to play while they're stuck inside!
