Even though the game is very short, it creates a sense of immersion I wouldn't expect. The story takes quite a dark turn and asks philosophical questions.
Visuals really fit into this kind of dystopian setting.

Great job overall!

Great story telling. Really enjoyed playing this!

Cool aesthetic and nice story telling :)

I’ll admit I survived the box dodging by hiding on the left hand side; but made it easier to play through again to see the endings!

I felt that the box dodging was a bit random, for this kind of game. 

I thought the story was kind of nice, but wasn't sure if the pathways at the end really impacted the setting overall.

I love the soundtrack and the visuals.

I mostly don't like it when people try to put a story in their jam games - usually there's a lot of text, very little substance, and a plot that simply cannot be engaging in such a short time. And the mechanics suck because the focus was on the story.

This game is the exact opposite of that - the plot is simple, to the point, yet not simplistic. It establishes some relatively interesting characters in an extremely short time. The game looks good, sounds good. I'm not a huge fan of the box dodging gameplay, but it wasn't bad.

It really surprised me.

Thank you so much for the review! 🙇🏻 If you liked these themes, do check out the games SOMA and SUPERHOT!

Cool game! I'm impressed you put so much together in such a short time. It's pretty elaborate with a good story, multiple sequences, and a real ending. The dodging part was my favorite and I was really impressed by the screen distortion or static effect. That looked SO COOL!

This was a lot of fun and I don't have too much criticism!  I hope you will play my game and follow me too!

I really like the theme and message of this game.

It reminded me a little bit of the Stanley parable, with how you played our expectations and knowledge of games.

Very cool!

It was a good experience, but we need to hard focus on due to the density of the text - so it is not a fast food experience or a free-use experience, indeed it is too much guided by the plot.

I don't like how Bob was toying with me like that :c

Overall though, this game was a delight to play. I loved the narration, the amazing art, the movements and gameplay reminded me of Undertale, which I really loved to see, the music was spot on to increase the intensity here as well. I really thought there was going to be something else in the danger area though I just had to check there too.

Amazing work on this game!

That game was clean! Nice one chief!
