I don't understand but I liked it. Super cool mood.

I'm really confused now...

It was certainly interesting, but I had no idea what I was doing (although that isn't necessarily a bad thing).

Also, ESC doesn't actually quit the game.

I'll be thinking about this one for a while I am sure. I blinked a couple times typing this.

Solid execution. I felt uneasy the whole time (in a good way).
Took me a bit to get it but once I did I felt like the progression was solid.

I liked the mood, although some ambience through sounds or music would have deepened the feeling. I was left rather confused at what happened though. Interesting concept.

We're really sorry about the music. We actually had the music but couldn't record it in time.
We can record it now, but we think that would be unfair, so we'll just leave it for the post-ludum update.

Thanks everyone for your comments!

That was a really interesting game! I felt like it played really well with the expectation I had at it.
Great mood, very mysterious.
As you may know there are some clipping errors in the hallway, maybe you can fix it.

Great game!

Cool little vignettes. That very last part startled me! Great work setting the mood/atmosphere. Looking forward to the postjam version with the music!

you play as the hotel operator?? I don't really get it, and the default unity fps controller was annoying.

We're really sorry you didn't like it, flwns, we did what we could.
I'll create a controller for the postjam version!

Wow I really did like the uneasy feeling your created with this, really nice concept. Some things such as graphically and certainly sound wise could have been better ofcourse, if it had some good sound and some of the visuals were improved upon the uneasy feeling this already invokes would have been greatly enhanced. Overall I really loved this though.

I think this was brilliant! Really creepy like a bad dream or dark poem. Nice work! Cheers -RS

Oh, How I liked such a type of games. More experience than gameplay. Very good. Great idea!

Very interesting games. I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/8ZKn12Y_qVg

Interesting... That's all I can say.
