Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

A tiny puzzle game set in an apartment. You faint for no apparent reason.

WASD - Move
Left Click - Interact

This Ludum Dare was a great opportunity to experiment with Unity3D for the first time.
I decided to try a totally different genre than what I usually do (arcade-ish games).

Art by Caribou (Baptiste de Laubier)

My bad, I messed up when copy/pasting the link. I've been busy all week so I didn't see all of your messages :(
I fixed the link and added some new builds as well (OS/X, WebGL).

I don't really understand what the goal is??
But it's very creepy! I don't know if that was the intent. :3

Cool ambience. Unfortunately I couldn't figure out what to do, and couldn't see very well with the limited lighting. I eventually clipped out of the room and fell for eternity.

Awesome mood, awesome art !
Can't get past the word puzzle thought. Tried to open/Close stuff in the sentence order but ran ot of idea after.

Great game. Congratulation !

This is really fun and intriguing. I only managed to get to day 2 so far

I would recommend adding a web link in addition to the embedded player. Regarding the game, the mood is fantastic. It reminds me of a dream I sometimes have where I'm constantly trying to wake up but I keep ending up in my bed. However, I found it unclear what to do after the second repetition.

Really cool and stressful game. However, I'm stuck after the door knocking, but I'm not sure if it's the end. I would like to see this game going further, it would be really interesting. Well done !

I like the mood and graphics quite a lot. Even with you spoilers, i couldn't continue after getting the flashlight, so that was a little frustrating. The whole puzzle element is really lacking any sort of guiding force, so I basically just have to imagine what you were thinking, which isn't great. Loved the voxel art with heavy shadows, that was a good look.

Thanks for the feedback! If you find yourself stuck and don't know what to do, please check the instructions to advance further in the game.

Great game! Atmosphere is great! I was pretty spooked. Some problems though: The Windows download link is broken, so I had to use the web link. The Game is WAY TOO dark and with the web link, the background is white. That makes it really hard on your eyes with a dark game.

Great atmosphere. Nice ending.

great ambiance. I couldn't figure out what to do, and its too dark to see something in my screen :( But cool graphics!!

I really liked the darkness of this one. You did a great job with the lighting and sound effects. It feels like these neverending nightmares where you don't know what you are doing, as if something was deceiving you, controlling you...
The difficulty of the puzzles is perfect and the game duration is good as well. This game instigates me to know its backstory.
However there is a collision problem with the floor. My hammer left the room once.
You have four 5 stars from me. :)

Hm...I see, so the player is disorder, and is forced to continue to create disorder in order to proceed to the next room.
Technicalities: It was way too dark and sometimes the mouseclicks don't really register.
Puzzles are good, the story is something I might not understand perfectly. Is it just a never-ending nightmare or is there more to it than that?

Amazing mood, I really liked it ! I reached a black screen, I guess that was the end of the game ? Some details could have been improved, like others said it is too dark, and it took me a while to realize what was the light on the ground.

Not sure what to do... walked around a bit and clicked on things but I did not seem to progress. The game looks pretty cool though (a wee bit dark), but it looks like it has potential.

Dat knocking sound freaked me out. I was trying to understand where is come from for one minute.

And yes, I think the game should be a little bit brighter. Looks nice anyway.

Nice ending by the way, when the door opened... I'll say no more.

Very atmospheric, plays into the theme nicely. Glad to see you got the 404 fixed, it was worth the wait.

Very nice atmosphere! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
