Cool stuff! Very dark. Reminds me of The Cat Lady, which is one of my favorite games. Sets a nice mood with the limited visuals and simplistic controls.  There's some fairly outlandish typos throughout the game, but they almost seem like the belong in the more maniacal parts.  Could use some more background music/atmosphere throughout, the music that's in it sounds appropriate but the areas with no background audio kinda detract from the experience.  I really like what you've done, it just feels a bit sloppy. Would be nice to see further developed!

Thanks for the feedback! Hhaha yes the typos are somewhere there on my priority list :) will work on them. I was thinking of adding music but chose not to focus on silence and environmental sounds, despite finding my way into game development from making soundtracks. Still work in progress, I hope you will play the finished version in a few months

I really liked this!  The opening and the atmosphere especially all contribute a great deal to the game's quality despite limited visuals.  I also thought the text running out of bounds when things started to ramp up was a nice touch.

I do not know if I missed something, but after opening the door of the room (where there is someone who snores) with the key and found the matches, the corridor outside becomes all black, and I do not can do nothing but return to this room. The game remains an interesting experience, with a simple gameplay that fits well with this type of games.

First of all, thanks for playing and the feedback! I could not reproduce the bug on my machine, but it appears to happen on others. I made a change that should not not let the overlay stay when you leave the room.
