-Pick of the Fortnight from Weird Fucking Games-

This is an Idle game, meant for playing in the background while doing other things. For the optimal experience, put the game on a second monitor while you work or browse. Made for PIGSquad Idle Jam 2023 in roughly ~30 hours of work, and since updated for LSDJam 2023 with two new levels, and a nice UI pass.

You are the all-seeing observer of a pair of roommates, Panchin and Julem. Panchin is an artist struggling with creative block, and thus spends most of their time pacing around the room, or staying distracted.

Click to collect Panchin's Tears of Frustration. The amount of Tears collected during the day affects Panchin's dreams at night.

Connect with Twitch to suggest things for Panchin to do during the day.


  • 5 explorable dreams
  • 6 songs
  • 3 characters
  • One hostile goblin
  • One hostile golem

it looks promising and i like the music and art design but i do not know how to connect this game to twitch. some instructions for people who are not familiar with the platform would be nice

You type your Twitch account's name into the box and click "connect", and the game will connect to your active stream as a regular user to check for !panchin commands in your stream's chat :)


I liked the game, it’s not bad, most of all I liked that it’s a nightmare (a dream with 0 terra) you look cute but not in the primordium, and also the better the dream, the more optimized it is (cut down) good luck with development.

Any way to add the chat system onto the game so I won't have to sign up onto Twitch?

I'll consider the idea as a separate mode, though it'd kinda remove the idle aspect. At that point it'd basically just be buttons.


I can't describe how this game has made me feel, It's so surreal!

The concept is great, and I can't wait to see how this project will develop over time.


Thanks so much!
