Over time he starts to lose his sanity.

The controls are W, A, S, D to move around and E to interact with objects.
Esc to cancel (only in the option menu) or to close the game.
You can (and should) change the zoom level in the options menu. Set it to 0 for fullscreen.

Absolutely loved it. Reminded me of NHK ni Youkoso, and my own patterns of anti-social behaviour (not that it had ever reached that extent). A/V was top notch as well.

That was just great! Now if you don't mind me, I'm gonna go study for my final now...

I enjoyed this a lot!

I would have loved to play this but unfortunately the resoulution seems to be hardcoded and doesn't fit on my screen (1440*900) :-(
This way some part is cut off.

Good narrative, good graphics and definitely a lot of work!
We enjoyed the experience, the writing isn't perfect but it's definitely enjoyable and made us want to play it until the end.

I was not hoping such a good narrative and well written dialogues. I like your take on the theme and the idea is really promising!

A great entry, congrats!

I really enjoyed this. Absolutely atmospheric. Great work with the sounds. It really creeped me out when I got to the trashy room for the first time and the game crashed.

You were asking whether the 6000 players in Just pick a number are real. They are, and they are coming from reddit. Check my updated entry for more info.

Great art and sound, very cool story. It got me pretty uncomfortable. Well done :D

Wow, great mood & use of the theme! Very well done story & writing, although the backstory told by the flamingo maybe could've been done a bit more subtly or gradually. Still really enjoyable to experience. Loved the "jumpscare" too :P Nice work!

This looks really cool, but the game crashed while talking to mom on the phone so I can't see more of it. :(

Beautiful graphics, I really liked the animation. Dialog feels kind of awkward at moments, but I the story is great.

However, the player shouldn't need to read instructions to know how to interact with the main menu. It's ok if you can do it with E, but as that's not intuitive it might be wise to allow interaction by clicking in a button o pressing Enter or Space.

Great idea for the theme. Loved it, some really freaky moments (one in particular got me, but won't spoil it).
I got a crash while playing fullscreen on my 1366x768 screen. Window mode worked fine.

Very good, story/mood was fantastic and quite long too! The art was great and consistent although the walk anim seemed like he was shuffling at high speed which looked like gliding, but that's a very small detail. The TV scene was fantastic. Audio as well was superb.
