Engaging story, fun music, and fit the theme perfectly. This is really impressive for one week of work. Great job!

This is really great! It feels like such a cinematic story, really well done and polished!

The visuals are great! Although the train kind of looks out of place, everything else was great! The start and end credits were really well done.

The Gameplay itself feels very linear, and not as open to exploration as I would've hoped. Like there is only one way to beat the game, which is uncharacteristic of the genre. Although I might've missed some things.

The music is amazing! Honestly one of the highlights of the game, along with the intro and credits of course.

This game can definitely be expanded upon! Make the train bigger! Add more endings! You can easily make it a full release.

Love the cinematics and art style! Very nicely done and clever. Only complaint was I couldn't fullscreen and it booted windowed in higher resolution than my monitor so had to play it on 2 monitors since it went off screen.   Other than that was great!

Thanks for your comments! Just made the window re-sizable and enabled full-screen.

This game is really fleshed out! A lot of good world building from the dialogue to just the design of each of the rooms. The intro sequence was also really nice and contextualizes the whole narrative simply but effectively (I also love a nice title drop haha). The visual and auditory presentation were also really well done. The writing was just pure fun overall and the solution to the"mystery" was just a nice book end to the whole narrative. There is just so much added and implemented here that I applaud your team for the hard work this make have taken to cohesively fit all of things together. This was a really nice game! Good job!
