Let's remember what's important in life. It's not about the money, it's not about happiness, it's about LIFTING.

This is a puzzle game where you lift boxes in pursuit of the "Grand Goal". There are only 4 buttons. Left, Right, Q, and W.

Left - Moves player left
Right - Moves player right
Q - Lifts box in front of you
W - Places box in front of you

1. You may only lift 1 box at a time
2. You may only lift a box if you can fit a box above your head
3. You may only scale a box if it has no box above it
4. Anything that falls off of a box, will fall to the lowest possible height.

The game was really meant to be a joke but I scrapped it together anyway. The plan is to add a restart button and compress the verbs into 1 but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

Hey, Lugia! Glad that there are more singleplayer games here on BYOND, but I hope you don't mind feedback.

There is one issue that I think need to be addressed:
1. A restart button.
I'm not sure whether or not it was intentional, but in quite a few areas of the game, you're literally stuck if you messed up on the last part. If this was intentional, I think the game definitely needs a restart function, that way we don't have to relaunch the game through BYOND.

2.Better Level Design
In case the issue above was not intentional, I think better level design would be also be an acceptable alternative to address the issue above.

That wall was supposed to be removed. It was to give myself a wall when I was self-testing. I've updated to the version that was supposed to go out. Sorry.

I'm having trouble getting past this wall:

There's no way to raise boxes to higher y-levels, only lower. That means building a ramp requires carrying all the previous blocks to the wall while keeping them at their initial height.

My art is fine. Feel free to submit your own art to replace mine.
