It's a confetti factory simulation! (This is shamelessly inspired by an old AfterDark screensaver that I recall.)
Hit 'Z' to open or close valves.
Hit 'X' to change direction of conveyors.
Try to get the confetti into the correctly colored out bin in order to advance to the next level. Mixed confetti will reduce your score because it's really hard to sort after the fact.
Hit 'E' to advance to the next level.
I added some game mechanics into this, but I worry that the level of control (valves and conveyors) just isn't that satisfying.
The engine is pretty solid now and can handle 500 particles at once while gracefully destroying old particles to keep the frame rate at max.
I am thinking of switching this to game play more like Pipe Dream, where you have random parts and a time limit to build a machine before the confetti starts coming.
