Description
Release date: 20XX
"bob's game" is a game about a game called bob's game. I worked on it for a long time. It's not done so I want to get it on Early Access.

There is a Wikipedia article which explains more: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Bob%27s_Game&oldid=713042467

It is written from scratch in Java and now is being ported to C++. It was previously written in C but I rewrote it.

I've been working on it for so long and it has such a complex history that talking about it is very difficult.

"bob's game" is a piece of art. It is an obsession by one individual, not made for profit, but as a form of therapy for the creator. This is what real art is. It's one person trying to figure themselves out, but the catch is that the person doesn't have a choice. They can't stop.

Many of the people that criticize it as a commercial product don't really understand what it is or why I'm making it. That used to bother me a lot, and it hurt my feelings for a long time, but now I understand and it doesn't bother me.

Please download and play the demos if you have questions about the gameplay.
(Remember: Don't give up on Tetrid, there is a trick to it.)

Also see the separate Greenlight entry for the bob's game puzzle game (the best puzzle game ever made) here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=603367632

I've also listed the custom BobEdit tools and "bob's game" engine used to make this game on Greenlight, so that others can make games using them if they want: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=604913553
