Great idea. Thought it was a bit short, especially relative the length of the recording (which got a little annoying to skip through at parts). Good voice acting. Normally quickly made games with spoken word in them sound terrible!

Really great concept! I like the humor behind it: having a audio recording filled with random informations, numbers, name, history, bunch of music, and just fast forward through it to get to the relevant parts. And it's used cleverly along the game.

It's short, with a single concept, but it never feels repetitive. And the voice acting is good! Very nice job.

Very cool concept, although moving the tape feels very tedious. It would probably be helpful if there was a navigation bar that you could click around or something to move around the tape.

I feel it misses the point of the theme somewhat. Although there's multiple reasons you may want to move around the tape, since you're stuck in a linear hallway it ends up being the one and only gameplay mechanic and serve only one purpose; to have the solution for the next door.

It could be a very cool mechanic for a more expanded puzzle game with a more open level design, multiple puzzles to solve, and multiple tapes. Interesting story/mystery would be a must have too.
