--NOTES--

this game was originally planned to use a hand-puppet controller, as the theme of the PIGSquad summer slow jam 3 was : alt-controls. Tilting the wrist up and down would aim the player in that direction. closing the mouth of the puppet would shoot projectiles. a USB game pad was deconstructed and a mechanism was put in place for UP/DOWN controls. wiring had begun on the bite controls, but the UP/DOWN control was not precise enough to make game playable within time restraints of game jam and daily life. controller was scrapped in favor of showing a playable version of HandLand with traditional controls in place.
