So, played this right now, and all I can say is: it's amazing, Really really amazing. Good writing, amazing voiceover - like, it's really incredible how the voices played out during the conversations, specially the one with Ted - and a story that certainly will cling to me for a bit. I hope there's more to come, because i really want to know moore about WTF is going on, and more about Dave.
Nice job, really nice job.

It was a ride! I love the format of this! The surreal atmosphere was pretty great, clicking on things felt fluid and use of photos were brilliant! A+ writing! Really good music! Only wished it was longer. ;D

Well, that was, surreal. Yet somehow the voice acting made it seem totally normal, go figure.

Definitely  have to give props to the voice acting and use of imagery, and while short, the exploration did it’s job, though it could be a bit hard to tell what was intractable and when especially when it went between the text and items in the scene. Still, I was able to get through everything relatively quickly and without getting stuck anywhere.

Shame it’s over, it got me curious about Dave's circumstance and what would happen to him next, though I guess that's the sign of a good story. It stayed at a good length to stay engaging without getting too long, if there’s ever a continuation I would love to play :)

I have a story planned (mostly just to make sure things thematically fit with each other), but I'm holding off to see how the response is. I tried to add a subtle glow to text when there's more to click, but I think I've made it too subtle, so definitely something to work on. Thanks for the kind words and checking it out!

Just played this, and I loved how surreal and creepy it was. I'm also definitely impressed with the use of photos, voiceoiver, and of image mapping inside twine. The wound was a fantastic touch and I'd honestly really enjoy to see an expanded story with this theme. Really my only "complaint" was that I wish it lasted longer!

Thanks so much! I had so much to do outside the writing and planning that I feel like I may have scoped it a bit too small.
