Amazing game! Highly recommend you play it!, November 12, 2020

I'll try not to give to much away as figuring out the secrets are really fun, but this game was really well made. I will say there was at one point I got frustrated, but quickly figured it out and moved through the game. Once I got to the victory screne I felt so much accomplishment. There was one point where I had misclicked out of the game and had to start over, but I hopped back on and started over. It's the design is pretty simple, but that's just what adds to this atmosphere of "What do I do next". Anyways, I really enjoyed the game and hope others will too.

Realistically hilarious, May 4, 2016

You'd think this game would irritate the crap outta you because it's so on point but it was really funny and there's so many different paths you can take leading you to a different result. It's very well written. Kudos to the game developer!
