OK, I finally uploaded a video of my playthrough, it can be found here:

What are you supposed to do after you find answers.txt? Does the game just end there?


Hi !
Yes it is. It's just a prototype we made in a few days during the meta game jam. We are working hard on the game right now, and a new version will be released very soon (in 2 weeks). You should wait until then and test the new one. Thanks for trying this prototype though ! :D


Nice concept, and you used it in some really creative ways too, good job!


Thank you ! We are developing new mechanics so if you are interested, do not hesitate to follow us !


I really enjoyed playing around with the files - I hope you keep developing this!


Thank you ! We continue to develop it and we have several new ideas :) 


I would love to see more of this.  I really enjoyed everything about the metaness of this game.  I think it needs a lot more content and visual polish, but for the time limit, very very well done!

I look forward to more!

Great work!


We continue to develop this game until june, so be sure there will be more content and polish (and sound design !) 

Thank you very much for your comment :) 


Wow, very meta concept! Very nice, although a bit short, wanting to see how this idea can be pushed further.


Very nice! Especially the lightbulb was impressive!


Impressive! I've known several visual novel that interact with the file system, but this one is really creative! Well done.


Very nice concept ^_^ We are really outside the box, for all this game. A lot of gameplay imagination, here.
