Thanks again for all the nice comments we're getting here!

Some people have asked "is this a game or a toy?"
Answer: yes!

there is a "game mode" where you can try to "win" as fast as possible by completing "achievements". There is also a "toy" mode where you have total freedom to do whatever you want. There is even a "spectator mode", which does everything on its own, randomly.

Definite upvote. Nice to see someone using imagination and doing something different.

Is this a game, or just some weird toy? either way, downvoted it.
