QUESTION: Whether this game is The Worst <3 ?

OBJ. It would seem that this game is not The Worst <3 because it has a solid level structure and a coherent theme. That's not trolly!

I ANSWER THAT, by weaving different ZZT tricks and whatnot into all the different puzzles and constantly messing with my brain, Zephyr may in fact have made The Worst <3 ZZT game in this jam.

REPLY TO OBJ. Aha! A coherent theme of TROLLING THE PLAYER so they can make better RAMEN.

IMO this game Zephyr made for the Oktrollberfest organized by Mean Girls Games is his best so far. It puts you on a (totally optional) quest to learn the secrets of the world's most delicious ramen from a fellow who could've walked straight from a food battle manga/anime.

And so, in a series of (optional) challenges, you learn the [REDACTED] [REDACTED]s of heavenly ramen. And therein lies the alleged trolling. Zephyr makes excellent uses of ZZT mechanics, and what we expect from them, in these challenges and translates them to valuable life lessons for ramen making. There are a few real 'gotcha' moments in these challenges (which I reckon is the trolling), but overall it is a very fair, and fun, experience.

Since it's a Zephyr/Burger Digital game, expect catchy music and some all-singing, all-dancing cinematics. This tops his other big release of the year in my opinion.
