I think you need to tell the player some things, mainly what does the final pod even look like and how much time do I have before everything explodes. A restart button would have been nice as well

So first of all, amazing work on the atmosphere(I even turned my lights on o.O). However I kind of didn't know if it was actualy possible to get help and I didn't really understand what my commands did. From what I understand the black screen is a game over, but perhaps it could have said something like "conection lost" to give some more feedback.
All in all I would still say this is overall a great experience
PS: Man I think it's really creepy if games know your name XD
Man I really like the game idea, but to me the slippery controls just make it so frustrating. If this choice was driven by the out of control theme, you should concider updating that after the jam. Because then I could see this game being much fun, Great work!
I liked the idea, but I think it would have been even cooler if the projectiles could travel across the screens and you would have to watch out for that as well (As in you would be able to hit yourself).
I really enjoyed the idea. There where so fun moments where I planed to get over an obstacle by turning into a werwolf, but was denied by something I overlooked. So it fits the out of control theme well!
The idea is pretty entertaining. Sadly there are only two actual conversations to have and having to wait for a right moment, wasn't exactly giving me the feeling of losing control. Perhaps it would be more fun if the text and your cursor are moving randomly. Then you would have to try to wrestle the mouse to the right answer.
It was still fun overall

I obviously didn't have time to play every game, so I'm sorry if I didn't get to play yours.
It would be great if you can give these games and their creators some love.
