Disk Cleanup

Made for an 8 hour jam where we all pulled an emotion out of a hat and made a game about that. I can’t remember exactly what the emotion I got was. But I do remember that I wanted to make the player feel worried. I wanted to make a game where the player felt like there was actual real-world consequences for how they play the game. Disk Cleanup is a game that tests you on your knowledge of your own computer, and then threatens to delete your actual files if you mess up. It ask the player to look at a bunch of file paths and sort them into real or made-up piles. All whilst under significant time pressure. Wait. Do I have an E drive?
