Not sure if I reached the end of the game or not, if there is an end.  (I reached the black out room)

The game is quite surreal, the scene depicted was like an escape room mixed with a surrealist horror movie. 

I do not know how I can suggest any constructive feedback to something I do not even understand.

Was there a puzzle to be solved?

Was there supposed to be an end?

Maybe its too random, feels more like a RNG tied to a bunch of rooms than a cohesive storytelling device. Or maybe I just do not get it.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! And well - to make it less random I would need much more time than 48 hours of development.

The game was inspired by the movie "Cube 2", you can watch it to get the idea of whats going on better (and understand why the rooms actually were randomised, and get the ending), if you want.

Why couldn't I use the knife I found in the other room to defend myself?

I was close to start drawing a map :) But then I thought the rooms order is random..

Developer

It's a bug that I did not had time to fix. However, in every room where you may need to use a knife - you can. You can't use it only in rooms with no enemies or in rooms where knife would be useless

Maybe I just wasn't fast enough to use it.

I really like how unsettling this game makes me feel

My first attempt on making a horror-like game
