The game was originally created as an entry for the 1024 Bytes Game Compo 2nd Edition. It was written on May 25, 2008 and released to the public on June 1 along with the other entries. The exact filesize of the game was 1025 bytes, including the header bytes, which didn't count under the rules of the competition.

It was later entered into the 2008 MiniGame Compo. The rules were a bit different in that competition, so the author had to slightly modify the game code to remove one extra byte.
