Editorial Reviews

8Bit Undead
Going Down is a fantastic little text adventure game...
I am going to be completely honest here. I did not have high expectations for a text adventure game that basically took place inside an elevator. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Going Down does a really great job of bringing the infamous “Creepypasta” legend to life. (8/10)

A creepy elevator game with great graphics and sound, November 3, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: 15-30 minutes

This is a game that should be enjoyed at a slow pace, even though it's not too long. The slow-burn is the point, and it's good! I also recommend sound.

A friend of yours wants to play the 'elevator game', a creepypasta-esque game where you have to go to different floors in different orders, and you are supposed to end up in an alternate universe.

The elevator is mimicked here with muzak, elevator bings, and gentle use of graphics. I liked it! But it's hard to rush through.
