I've finally come around to posting a game trailer, so you can see how the game works before downloading it:

(Scroll down a bit on the page.)

The unsatisfactory animation jerkiness can, unfortunately, be seen in the movie too. It would be nice to get that solved, but it's a lot of script to go through to understand how it all works, so I'm not sure it's worth the time one must probably spend on it.
Well, the game is playable, and enjoyable, anyway. :)

I like what you have made :)
It's looking fun and i think also an original game.

Keep it up!

Thanks! :D Yes, I haven't seen this exact concept before, so I believe it's a bit original.
And some people who played it say it has that immersive "just one more turn" factor that makes you forget the time and play way longer than you intended... :)

So, I'll try to find time to keep improving it, and also get proper installers and do notarizing and stuff, so that people don't get scared off by all the security warnings that now occur after downloading it.

Cool! 8) Let me know if you run into any problems installing our playing it.

I need to test again to install it fresh on latest Catalina to see how much the OS complains about security issues. :|
At last Windows test it got instantly quarantined by the security shield (Symantec, I think) which was very reluctant to letting me grant an exception. But after that it worked fine. :)
