Very simple idea and execution, but very effective, nice job!

I was confused, but intrigued enough to figure it out.

Solid experience, bit confusing at first.

At first I had no idea what to type, I just buttonmashed. It was comforting when I figured out what the blobs meant, but what was most fun was when I knew what was next, and could type quickly. The story was strange though.

Got me shaking. 5/5 nice experiment.

I do not believe this would could be a full fledged game, but was very good for this game jam. Perfect execution of the idea with a horror taste.

Interesting entry! I really enjoyed mashing my way through it :p the sounds were really well done, and did an awesome job making the visuals feel good.

More trial and error until you notice familiar words, so I don't know if I can judge it as a game per say, but still a good effort, cool atmosphere/music and idea!

I liked the moments where I saw where it was going and could just type away. I wish those were longer!

Nice little experiment that clearly communicates what it's doing. It's neat to see when sometimes I can tell what word will be typed, and sometimes I can't. Would love to see this extended into a more extended game - you could do some interesting things with it.

This is already a full experience, yet it has so much more potential! I would love to see a bigger game like this!
