Not bad. Game is very simple and fits game jam's theme. I like dark mood of this room.

However, I discovered there is one way of repeating one action that gains you reputation and does not increase wanted and hated values. I think that mechanic should be reworked. And I miss an option to restart game. Everytime I end game I have to use alt F4 in order to get back to desktop. There is also another issue - there is no reward for winning game. I feel disappointed. You get the same black screen and red letter. Unrewarding.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll work in addressing those problems in the future towards this and other projects.

I'll be honest I played through a couple times and never fully understood the results of my actions. The atmosphere was good and I loved the poster over the bed. :)

I ran into an issue where I clicked the door and then hit turn right with the door dialogue open and I couldn't get it to go away. Overall interesting concept, I think better signalling to the player would be helpful. Oh and the you died sound is a bit loud and alarming.

Thanks for the feedback.

I'll work in fixing the door problem, also I'll work in making objects have an outline when you hover over them and are interactable.
