This was subtle and weird! Very surprising stuff and well made! Loved your font. And you really nailed the paper theme by choosing a public domain source that is all about it! Well done. :)


Strange and fascinating. Really well put together.

What the hell I'm just finished play? :O

You surprised me - this entry is very original and unusual, mood is worrisome. Someone could say that this game is 'strange'. Yes, it is. but I like it so much through this unusual form.


Finally got to playing this one, really liked it!  A very unique combination of narration and visual space; quite surreal, and I think it definitely succeeded in capturing the mood of the piece.  Kudos!

This game genuinely scared me and made feel very uneasy! Well done! :)


That was fantastic! I remember reading the poem my sophomore year of college, and it was truly an interesting one to me. To see someone put it in game form just brought it all back! Very well done!


Excellent choice of material, and the presentation of putting the player in the room and in the walls was clever. Played through and quite liked it.

Interesting little game, I like the way the words appear. I included it in part 2 of my Public Domain Jam compilation video series, if you'd like to take a look :)
