Maximum Urgency, January 15, 2014

Due to the gimmick, I found my sense of urgency ramped right through the roof. I've only played for 5 minutes, solved one simple puzzle, and it's not setting, writing, exciting puzzle-building, but (Spoiler - click to show)POV that's got my adrenaline pumping. Wow, 5-stars for originality, seriously.

Update:
The first couple times my timer ran out, I felt just terrible.
I think it was the third time that I saw the OTHER twist, which I did not expect for such a short game. This just gets better.

Update 2:
After reading the Club Floyd transcript and the comments at Jay is Games, I wonder, am I the only one who thought (Spoiler - click to show)the player might NOT be human, but AI/computer??
