Award Reason

Thanks to the rapid development of personal computers, the average person can now enjoy the experience of programming. This game is a great idea. The characters are distinctive and the degree of difficulty is well implemented, letting you play without having to worry. This game presents two comedic styles, the "joker" and the "straight man". The artist's focus on content greatly improves the quality of this work. This game is very enjoyable to play.
