After wrestling with Suspended, try this, December 7, 2020
by Sobol (Russia)

A small, silly parody of Suspended where you turn dials and observe, via monitors, how your settings affect the planet.

I think Admiral Jota's SpeedIF output is worth serious scrutiny for those who want to learn making very short but entertaining parser games. Being so brief and written under strict time constraints, his SpeedIFs don't offer deep stories, complex game worlds or clever puzzles; and yet they are fun to interact with.
