A short, buggy story about a lion commanding a spaceship, February 15, 2016

This game is built up directly out of the lyrics of the corresponding They might be giants song.

In this game, you alternate between a lion man in charge of a space ship and a kids' garage band.

The game is very buggy, with typos in procedurally generated text. It is often confusing knowing what to do, the hints are not really hints, and the consoles in the spaceship do not give hints on what to do.

For me, much of the gameplay was waiting until the game prompted me on what to do.

I enjoyed the game's story, which is why I gave it a star (I know you can't give 0 stars on ifdb, but if you could, I would not have done it). But it's unpolished and didn't really affect me.

I feel like a lot of this could be improved if one of the authors went back and patched things up.
