Delve inside a decaying computer from 1995.
Defragment the the files and free up some disk space.


WASD / Arrow keys – Move around
ESC – Teleport back to the start (handy if you get lost or stuck somewhere)
– Toggle player coordinations on/off (also handy if you get lost)
M – Toggle music on/off



😱 Uh oh! - this computer's hard disk is bursting at the seams, it can barely even switch on >_< Time to get into your miniaturised Defragger ship and delve into the heart of this decaying computer to help free up some space.

Find all the pieces of the fragmented gifs to win - explore, solve puzzles, open shortcuts and plunge into heaps of tiny computer files as if they were dried leaves in the fall /autumn.

This computer is falling apart and large chunks of it are open to THE VOID - enjoy exploring this terrifying, trippy, infinite, beautifully overdrawing domain!

There's all sorts of crazy nonsense in this nightmarebox - keep an eye out for a foe from a bygone era of word processing 📎

how do i make art like this>???


Not sure how to answer that! I used Photoshop to create the image assets and the 'Hall of Mirrors' effect was created as a consequence of using a camera in GameMaker Studio 2 and not having a background texture and making sure the application surface isn't refreshed between steps.

If you mean more generally than specifically, then the only advice I can give is do the thing you love doing and keep doing it until you're good at it.

awesome, only problem you die easly from speed boot crash thing with spikes

I'm all over that animation at the start! Really nice lead in. Something very compelling about tidying this disgrace of a HD, with those cheeky little files getting in the way everywhere. 

The memory leak effect is a great touch, and makes for some delicious glitch art even when you're just messing about outside of the map. 

Definitely would love to duke it out some more with Clippy though... fuck that guy.
