Why does this game have only 9 votes? This is the masterpiece and deserves more attention! :D

I enjoyed every part of this meta-expirience. Especially when you know that the game was made to look "bad" on purpose, it gets even better. It was hilariously fun to play, as you never know what to expect next. The narrator keeps messing with you by throwing you in main menu and then continuing with absurd events. It somehow reminds me of Stanley Parable and its cool endings, but this one is game dev related and pretty short. I think I actually got all endings in the game (let me know if I missed something)

10/10 will be waiting for the next part xD

Thanks for the review! You got all the endings except for the bad ending, which occurs if you don't take a break before starting working again, but yeah, other than that you got them all!

I had fun playing this game! I managed to get 3 endings and it was hilarious. I mean I can't say anything is flawed in the game, because most of time the it feels so intentional :D

Technically, the walking is well implemented(audio and camera shake sync), I really felt I was walking in a 3D room. Extra congrats for that.

Great work!

Well, don't congratulate me too much for that, as I basically just modified the unity first person controller to remove jumping, as I mention near the bottom of the page, but yeah, the fourth ending is ok as well. Thanks for the review!

I laughed way to much here! This is awesome! I really like this kind of short experiences that can only exist in game jams! Music also add a lot to the fun. Good work!

This was... weird. I feel like I have just had a conversaition with someone. Not going outside - sad story.
