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

I sit at my living room desk, which is covered with the parts of dual-extruder head of my new 3D printer and think to myself: "Damn man, I think LD starts in a couple minutes."
I quickly looked at the Theme... "One Room"... Ok.
Then I assembled the printer while thinking about what to do.
This time I wouldn't do my game in a single 36 hour coding session.
No procedural generation, no fancy textures or sprites but something dark and maybe experimental that I've never tried.
I liked the idea of something happening behind your back. Should be easily combinable with a single room. Its a very short experience, but I hope you can still enjoy it.

That is some nice meta game there. Visuals are great and music makes the mood just right. I think i saw somewhere this concept of thinking of game solution from real life actions but cant remember where...

I loooove the psychological aspect.
Nice idea, a bit short, but I loved every second!

Amazing mood, nice graphics.
There seems to be a riddle behind this ? I'm not sure I get it, but the answer seems a bit meta.
I love how the messages appear behind your back. Very nice graphic effect on the text too !

This game reminds me a little bit of something out of "The beginners guide". Very interesting concept. Sadly i could not solve the riddle.

"Why try to win a game with no rules?" Life, maaan. It's a game with no rules so ya'll need to stop trying to win, just relax and enjoy the game itself.

burrito/10 - would start thinking way to deeply about life and relationships again.

Good work!

I was frustrated to finish the game so quickly.
