Bonus feature: launch with a parameter for windowed mode.

Done in about 4.8 hours.

At first I was like, "WTF is this crap?"
After a minute it kind of grew on me, despite (because of?) the awful graphics. It has a certain charm.
I really like this take on the "Alone" theme.
I almost think it would be better if there wasn't an ending, and you were just doomed to sit there waiting forever...
Pretty good for something that was obviously just thrown together quickly. Good job!

I have to agree. At first glance, this looks like it's one of the "oh god please don't make me play this" games, but... it does have it's own strange charm. After trying it out, I have to say it's certainly not bad.

I was honestly also sort of expecting a anti-climatic "end" as well where you just... wait.

And wait.

And wait...

How do you do windowed mode?
fits theme, I despite it being full screen.

Thats a lamp, not a noose was my far more favorite line. I legit was about to hang myself :D

Heh, I like the attitude - "I only have 5 hours but I will submit something anyway!". And in 5 hours you docreate some content and a working adventure framework. Nice!

Nice job in just 4.8 hours!
I didn't like the ending though.

Gratz on finishing that up.
I like the graphics type, especially the weird quirk to it.

Nice get on the theme, unique interpretation on that sofar.
Also it was funny to play. Great ending... as in worst birthday ever ending ever.

Would have loved a timelapse of the graphics ^^

The full screen is quite agressive. Aniway, good take on the theme!

I was sad that we could not see in the kitchen or the toilet.
