Not bad for an entry made in such short time.

Things you did really well:

- A crosshair. You would be surprised by the number of people who forgot crosshairs in their 3D games.
- Good visual cues for when you're looking at something important.
- Consistent art style

Things that you didn't do well:

- I played this game in fullscreen mode. When looking at a note, I had to press 'Escape' to reveal the mouse to click on a button to submit my answer.
- I got the same note in the same place 3 times. So effectively I ended up solving one riddle once and another riddle three times in a row to win.
- The riddles were multiple choice. If they were fill-in-the-blank they would have been much more effective and challenging.
- Hard mode didn't work when I clicked on it? Maybe that's the trick. Maybe part of hard mode is figuring out how to enter hard mode...
