This Game is made for the Cactus Game Jam. 

The project is a bit psychedelic, as it visualizes a Russian aphorism about mice and a cactus from the perspective of a cactus.

"The mice cried, got hurt, but continued to eat The Cactus."
- Russian aphorism

simple but it was also strangely enjoyable, absolutely beautiful 

Well that was weird but good👍


It's not a game, it's more like an animation. But I really liked the design, and I was very distressed and tormented. I think that was the intention. I remembered the anguish I felt reading the scene of torture with rats in the book 1984 by Geroge Orwell. The purpose of art is to cause emotions, and this has fulfilled its role. So good work!

Thank you! Yes, it is designed to cause mixed feelings and hopelessness. And yes, this is more of a cutscene than a game.
