Trivia

  • Jiggmin came up with the game's concept by doing the opposite of typical Valentine's Day games, where instead of love and coming together, it's about fear and staying apart.[1]
  • Due to a bug within Flash, it's impossible to play the official game with Flash Player versions above 19, as the game only reads their first number (currently "2" instead of "20") when it runs a check, rendering it unplayable. The game can be modified to remove the check altogether, though.
  • The game's font, Gwibble, would eventually become the staple font of the Platform Racing series.
    • Additionally, the level completion sound effect would be carried over as well.
  • The bus and hallway backgrounds contain writings of various innuendos and other jokes.
  • A glitch allowed players to easily complete the third level by pausing the game before it was patched.[2]
  • Level four is Jiggmin's personal favorite stage.[3]
  • Despite being sponsored by the website, the game wasn't published on Armor Games until two years after its initial release.
  • This is the only one of Jiggmin's original games to never receive a high score page on his website.
