This may be a tad disturbing...

I feel like this is some weird out of body experience I just played... 

mmmmmmm..... hot dogs....

What an amazingly weird game... great work!

lel my video:


Officially made my journey to the Great Beyond.

Such a strange game! But still quite enjoyable :D  Is it based on a true dream? No judgment just curious!

This game taught me a lot about myself and life in general. 

I'm glad it could prove itself useful for you :)


well, I have no idea what I stumbled upon... this is so random but it was very enjoyable, I want to know why he is so into hot dogs, and does everyone else dream that they're always naked too? lol. I thought the game was fun and silly, making it to hot dog heavn was really the peak of my life haha, at some points I felt like I was moving the mouse and then it would just go crazy, but it kind of added to the craziness, but I really liked the part with the switch and wish more games had something like that in them. I look forward to seeing what else you'll do in the future :)


Happy you enjoyed it!  Thanks for the play and the vid, cheers!

Well, this was an experience that's for sure. Impressive for 72 hours.

Thanks for playing!

Such a fun game. had a blast playing it.  I didn't expect a game made in 72 hours to be this fun :) 

I made a video on it. Hope you like it :D

Thanks for playing & makin' the vid.  Cheers!

I just uploaded a Lumps Play for this because it was ridiculous??????

Nice work! Especially for 72 hours. Hope you like the video—my commentary is different! POP-UPS, BABY!

Cheers and thanks for the game. 🍻


Thanks!  Glad it made for a fun video.

This was an interesting game. Was fun to play :D Any chance you could tell me where you got the garbling sound effect that the hot dog man (Jeff) uses? :) Thanks

I made it!  I'm no audio engineer, it was dead simple.  I just recorded myself making a few silly noises with audacity.  Pitched it down, sliced it up.  Took 3 minutes.  Definitely a technique I'm going to use more in the future.

Oh, haha. That's great! I should make a note of that myself :D Thanks


Although short this was really awesome!

Its not possible, you cant jump high enough onto the ghost hot dog near the jukebox, meaning you cant get the golden hotdog

(Edited 1 time)

It's possible! There are other 'ghost-dogs' which will help you get up there.  Explore around the diner!

That's what I thought to, but it isn't man.
