A single moment of time, which you must explore, June 1, 2016

I really enjoyed the concept and execution of this game, except for some slow points at the beginning and end.

This game is, in fact, an enigma. You start in an almost blank room, frozen in time, and must slowly recall and piece together what's going on.

The story that unfolds is gloomy and perhaps over dramatic, but I found it intriguing.

The main mechanic, which I won't describe here, is almost like a hunt the pixel game, but in text. The initial hiccup is finding out how the mechanic works. The final hiccup is trying to figure out which thing you have neglected to search.

As Emily short said in a review of Toby's Nose, that game has a similar mechanic that was also effective.
