I fail to understand what the point of this game is; while it explores her miserable life, the writing isn't great, and I don't feel any true catharsis. Furthermore, I completely fail to understand how the computer program works. I just used trial-and-error until I got the intended result. Was the rug in the sibling's bedroom a clue? I don't know. I couldn't pick up on any clues.

However, though I don't like the game itself, it's extremely well designed. I really appreciate that I can use the arrow keys, or WASD - that it automatically pauses as soon as I select outside the window. That upon loading, it doesn't play any music (I often try and load multiple games, because of how large the files are, and this can be maddening).

So 4/5 because this was a really well made game - the game itself was just lacking. I'd be interested in seeing you guys do something else with this engine.

Excellent work. The subject matter is not for the faint of the heart that is for sure.

Very dark, yet very meaningful. Beautiful work.

Same underlying theme as Don't look back

(SPOILERS) Disturbing, manipulative, and great. Terry does the theme of Don't look back once more (BAD, HOPE, BAD) and does it well. I'd wish for a deeper game but for what it is, it's good. It creates emotion and it's hard to not be swept away in it even if it's simple tactics. The gunshots and the program and the ending were a bit surprising and made it much more enjoyable.
