The Guy In The Room

by BadPaul34 - Jam Entry

You live a journey through the same room, in different times.

You discover the life of your character through the same room, in different times.

Walk through the walls, explore the rooms, find each room's paper crane (= origami) to build the stairs.

WASD to move, mouse to look and interact.

Very interesting narrative experience. The environments have a unique feeling and the sound helps set different moods during the different periods of time.
The origami stair sounds and looks incredible.

Congratulations!

That was really interesting! I would have never considered to try and walk through the walls XD. The effects and the story is also really interesting.

Very touching game! Very well put together with the simple graphics and especially the music! Congrats!

Interesting concept, it's cool that it has so many narrative elements and creates different moods for each of the character's life periods. Well done ^^

Neat idea examining someone's life by investigating their room. It was a nice "a-ha" moment figuring out what was going on. Great music and atmosphere, I like the visuals outside the room. My only complaint is it was confusing remembering if I had found the swan in each room.

Cool effects on the camera. Nice story which is a little bit scary sometimes. I love the main concept. I am trying to find the solution (if it exists). Well done ++

This was really moody. I enjoyed the story, but what I thought was most interesting was your use of the theme. This was very well thought out and executed. Nice work.

I really enjoyed playing this! While I think the narrative was a little heavy handed while climbing the ending stairs, I thought the actual game was clever in its unique storytelling. Great job on the game!

PS: This guy was pulling down those girls and he decides to settle with a girl from the early 1900s? Haha

Best Narrative. I get motion sickness from walking. The story is very sad. Very depressing story. :(
