Please note: there is an option to play a lighter version "Start (Light)" in the main menu - this reduces the amount of animations thus saving your computer from getting too stressed out.

With Special Thanks to Abi / Whaley / qualifiedbadger / Pick_One / Lemmasoft Forums
Android version now available - it will need to be sideloaded. Please note: the game wasn't designed for mobile.
Dev note: I made this pretty much solo - which is quite the challenge! It's my 4th game jam, marking around 12 months since my first released project.
Right click and "extract all"
Find "pools.exe" and double click that.
If you get a windows smartscreen type message just choose "run anyway"
You may need to look at the 'more' or 'advanced' options if your operating system or anti-virus filter prevent you from saving or running the files. The game was coded by myself using the ren'py engine, so I know there are no viruses etc.

I got to the point where it booted me to the main menu, I can only presume that is the "End" of the game. This game is quite interesting and I had quite a bit of fun playing it.
