Fantastic work! Super addictive, love the concept, kinda cool how you get to be the boss. Mini games were really fun, although I never quite got the grasp of the fishing one... that one did me in a little. Great music, graphics are epic, and well done on top ranked. Played for the GitHub Game Off live stream:

Love your the concept! The mini games are very cool and I love the progression in difficulty.

What's the solution to the gold nightmare puzzle?

I am gonna break my mental sanity with nightmare breakout but I will prevail

Really fun and the ending was truly lovely
