A downloadable game

Amid drastic budget cuts and rumours of espionage, it's not a good time to be an employee at the local nuclear plant.

Still, a job's a job, even if it's getting harder and harder to do. If only there was a way to make it easier...

Try to get through the week as challenges mount in this narrative puzzle game, using the power of your computer's Light Mode.

The main objective is to place the files into their respective folders. Incorrect drops will be rejected and it also increases the chance of meltdown.

The instructions at the start of each day outline where the files need to go.

There is a light mode / dark mode toggle button to help you see what you are doing.

Jonathan the artist and puzzle designer here, if you're having trouble remembering the instructions I recommend writing them down or taking a screenshot. There were supposed to be reminder images under a Help button but we didn't get around to implementing them 😅

Made an icon identification sheet to help. A level-specific version of this would have been in each puzzle, so here it is to help after the fact. With this and writing down the instructions, you should have no trouble! ...Besides the trouble the pesky Dark Mode gives you ^^

Is this a Chernobyl game?

Not specifically, even worse managed than that if you can believe it, the plant's still standing so far though 😬
