A turn-based RPG where you program your team with a visual constraint-based language. Inspired by JRPGs and the engineering game genre, this is a short but challenging adventure for players who like to figure things out the hard way.

This is deeply interesting to me. I only have one critique: the visual effects make it unclear when Mind Split triggers a multi-hit. It's fairly obvious on Heal, and when my entire party gets Feared or Enraged, but occasionally I'll drop an Adrenaline on a Mind Split party member and only that party member gets the status effect glow.

Thanks for the comments! I will definitely need to figure out better visuals and UI to show what's going on with curses.
