Hey pr3tzil,

thanks for sharing your experience :)

We are glad you liked it, and we are always curious about feelings and ideas that may come out playing the game! We are looking into ways to let the player feel a more seamless experience with the file manager, and some kind of integration would be useful in various ways.

This project has been created with a 0 budget, but if it get enough traction we may think about a kickstarter and release more complex scenes and puzzles (for example a chase scene you mentioned above ;) ).

Also, please share the game with your friends and spread the love!

Awesome experience.
Good job on the level design and on the flow, can I suggest to make it more puzzle oriented?

It was cool to find objects and open with them new path, you could do a lot of interesting things mixing collecting objects with exporting the same space multiple times.

That's said, nice work. Can't wait to play the sequel.

Thank you so much. ;) We will keep you updated!

Hello there, fellow citizens of!
Today we release our last game, File://maniac a detective cyber-thriller where the player is encouraged to examine and alter the real game files.

File://maniac wants the player to focus on exploring what’s behind the scenes by destroying the screen barriers and understanding how to bypass the limits imposed by the game.


Enjoy this pixelated experience and share with us your thoughts.
