Arrow Keys to move and navigate

Well done! This is a very dark take on the theme. It works very well!

I quite enjoyed your game! I loved the little stories about the objects you find. Nice adventure. I would have liked to see one of those stories go a bit deeper but yeah... 48h :)

Interestingly made, a very dark and dirty twist on the theme. Was neat to play and see what came up next.

Short and interesting approach to the theme. It has a fun story and the game/reality switch is great.

If anyone gets stuck on the phone part, you use your arrow keys to change between your phone and the monitor/tv (: (I also added a notice in the description) thanks everyone!

Finding new objects was great because you'd get little tidbits of story but it's a good thing you pointed out to press the arrow keys after doing the phone part, I was stuck re-reading the same message haha :)

I love how you made your game a movie-like move around app! :3
I also get the theme in a way, at the end.
The music was really intriguing, like I can still feel/hear the beat in my head, and I really enjoyed your game! :D
It was short, but promising!

Clever use of the theme. Story can be told in more detail, but is good, but that's okay. Graphics are stylish in its minimalism. Nice work!

This game is pretty great. Clever & grim take on the theme. Wish it was longer, though.

I think I beat it? Really short, not really any decisions to make. Got stuck on the brown letter the first time through.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
