It was an interesting take. Only problem I found was that if I went to grab coffee (just because I felt like it, not with a prompt). I would forget what I needed to do. I went around hitting everything a few times until i realized I needed to turn on the light.

Good job! This is my favorite one so far. Really enjoyed how the mechanics deliver on the message you wanted to give players. Great mood, as others have said. Really enjoyed the experience!

I really liked the development of the second room, I just wish there was a bit more that tied into the game with it. Still, it did a good job of conveying the overall message. The graphics were quite effective, and sound design was pretty good.

Really interesting take on the theme. Maybe I would reduce the button mashing just a little bit so it is faster and more dynamic. Othrwise than that... I like it and I enjoyed plating it! :)

nice entry! and the music is excellent
there's definitely potential here
I quit on wednesday but only because I couldn't work more as I had to clean the desk and take out trash and didn't know how to.

I loved the mood and music!
I would appreciate some kind of visual feedback that I can do something actionable.
Btw does the game end? I've played through week and a half and then shut it down because I felt it would go on and on :)
Great job, sir :)
