A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

タイミングを見計らってタマゴを割ろう! タイミングを逸するとヒヨコになってしまうので、その時はタイミングを見計らって餌を与えよう! 成鶏になりタマゴを産んだら、再度、タイミングを見計らってタマゴを割ろう! タマゴを割り、うまく目玉焼きが出来たらタイミングを見計らって美味しく食べて下さい!うまく目玉焼きを作れなかった場合、地獄に落ちます。

—TAGUCHI RYO, http://famicase.com/16/softs/63.html


Time it right and crack the egg! If you miss, it'll turn into a chick, so time it right and give it food! When it grows up and lays an egg, time it right and crack the egg! Crack the egg, and if you fry it up, time it right and eat up! If you couldn't fry it up, you will be sent to hell.

—translation provided by Denji

This changed and reset my life. My brain has become Egg... I'm going to call my grandma and buy at least 15 chickens because of this game. My grandma is dead.

That was absolutely amazing. Playing through it, it seems nonsensical, but at the end you see how it all fit together. (Sort of, I mean it's still nuts) I actually got the good ending. I think.

The graphics and animations are great; I also loved how there were enough hints to push you along through the game. I was also very amused by how each of the sins were implemented in the game. Great job!

This reminds me of Frog Fractions, we laughted so much while playing this and it also has so many layered messages. Congratulations on this awesome entry! :) 

I dont know if anything lies beyond the layed egg but I love it very much.

there's quite a bit more, if you can make it back to where you came from...

you were right awesome really really awesome! Its just ... so well made

Nice game you made people, I saw a bunch of deep thoughts and meaningful messages in the game, but I kinda lost them in the end :D It was a very funny and bizzarre experience, totally worth it though!

I made a video playing your game: 

if you want to check, best of luck for your future projects, cheers!
