Yo Tovarishch we heard you like room escape games so we put room escape game walkthrough in our room escape game so you could walkthrough our room escape game while watching room escape game walkthrough.

Дорогие товарищи! Your gif-demos were very attractive. I wanted to escape from the room, but I couldn't even get into the room to escape, because room requires api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll and my Win 7 doesn't have it...

Thanks for the comment. Looks like your OS needs to be updated ;( We didn't find an alternative solution for this problem.

Thanks god, finally I am free.

I fun experiment, I actually smiled quite a bit as I explored. Definitely for me captured the confusion of trying to play an escape room game.

Would love to see even more interactions and voice lines (they were fun).

Well done, thanks for sharing!

Thank you! It was fun to invent these lines, and if we had had more time, there would be definitely more of them!

I felt like I was in an abstract painting. Sooo weeeird!

Creepy, weird, and frankly it stumped me completely. XD One day I'll open this back up and try again. Excellent mood and audio!

That's some high art sheet going down here. I liked the stark visual style of the room(s).

At first it was all creepy haha but that was the intention right? weird, felt really trapped, and each time I explored the game it was getting better ( At some time I forgot that I have to escape lol ) However Need to improve more the setting, and keep adding more stuff to interact with and voices, or music changes during some stages

The voice was cool, reminded me of Dr. Sbaitso. Although he does say "nothing strange" about a chair attached to the ceiling! The ending for me was just a black room, so not sure if I beat it. Pretty amusing, and plays with the theme pretty well!

Nice graphics audio and overall feel, but I did feel rather unsure if I'd finished the game or if it had bugged out, I ended up at a black screen

I don't quite understand the game, I just completed it by running at every door
