Liked the music. Otherwise there's not all that much to it, I guess!

How can you ever find out what the code is :S

You have to figure that out in order to escape :)

Well.. I didn't find the code, I hope I didn't miss something important ?

Nice music and use of the theme, otherwise I wouldn't call this a game.

Ha, I got it!

It's actually a good puzzle. Easy enough to understand, and just enough possible answers to figure it out.

The big reveal I guess is that the numbers just go to 26 :-)

But there's a zero in there ... so I guess it's 27 possible inputs per number. With 6 numbers, that's just 27^6 permutations!

I tried LD4821 - that wasn't it. Must have been the other thing :-)

Quite easy, but I'll admit it was somewhat clever (my first thought was to look for ascii codes, but then I noticed the same thing as Matthias). I don't mind short games, but there's not much of a game here. Sure, one has to interact with it to "escape", but it's not really fun, it's not really gameplay per se.
Also, I feel that there should be some kind of an in-game hint for those who don't get it at first, shown after some time. Well, I finished it, so it's not that bad, but could be a little deeper. :)
