Virtual windows managers are a soft spot of mine, instructions were clear, balancing numbers was fun and easy, writing is quirky without being cryptic, music bops with not one nor two but three tracks!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
It's a student simulator featuring a windowed UI and a virtual desktop. The game randomly gives you one of two students, whose time is yours to manage until either you get expelled for nonattendance, or you graduate after 3 years of projects and study.
I did have to sacrifice some of my scope to make it in time for the jam with reasonable amounts of testing, but there are also things I didn't originally intend to add, such as both students having their own projects and events. Games and persistent data are not saved to disk, unlike with Citrus and some of my other games—it's pretty short.
