I liked the idea and the game but to be honest I didn't really feel this bomb thing fitted right into the one room theme

Awesome and unique game. I absolutely loved it! Voice acting is superb. Writing too. And you really need to listen to, what is said and concentrate. Great! Will play again ant want more ;)

Excellent idea and execution. I got at least a couple of minutes in before dying after losing concentration at a critical moment.

Very cool concept but the girl in the background who won't shut up was very annoying. I suppose that was the point but still.

Very good execution. I didn't complete it though, I would have if every level would be repeated individually, but having to restart from the beginning for multiple times was too frustrating.

Mindblowing :)
The writing is great and acting is a real plus. The work on sound mixing and music is humbling. I fact this is the music is what impresses me the most. Corinne and Brian, congratulation this is great art!

This was great to play. Fantastic job. I like the 2 voices going on definitely made it a nice challenge. The randomness was good as well. Keep up the great work

Talk about intense. Having two people talk over each other, with the more important person to listen to being partially distorted, really worked well in this. I was actually in a panic when trying to work out which pin to cut or which capacitor to attach a resistor to.

Plus having the solutions be randomized definitely helps with replayability. Brilliant work!
