Website server simulator.
You are the man behind a server and must response to all requests as quickly as posible. Send the correct files on time and they wont fire you. A bad request? Don't worry, you have your always useful 404.html file with you.
To play: drag the files (with your mouse) on the right column and drop them in the requests in the right column.Categories: desktop
Feedback from the experts
Abiyasa Suhardi: A very interesting idea where you’re acting as a web server, either serving 404 page or the right content. Fits really well with the competition themes! It’s quite hard to play the game and can get very confusing at some point. Maybe it’s nicer to introduce ‘levels’ where the game starts with slower timeout and a few resources to serve, and later increase the difficulty gradually.
Ania Kubów: This game definitely made me think about servers in a different way! A humorous game that works on your reflexes. A fun play for sure.
Ahmed Khalifa: First of all congratulations on creating this funny game. It is a little too hard using a mouse, maybe it is easier using a touch screen. The idea is funny and I like the wrong requests that you need to serve 404 error to the people. I think the game could be an interesting clicker game in the same vain of Universal Paper Clips. Since it have the meta that you are working as a server responding to people requests with the correct pages. You could have upgrades that help you serve these files automatically and later maybe the game get expanded to include access and acquiring more resources and maybe the ending like the rise of Skynet and no more requests are happening anymore because no more humans which made your program question its existence. I am sorry for ranting about how to give your game some narrative arc with more progress but I love the idea and I think it is funny and have potential. Congratulations on creating this game.
