im so happy i finally completed it and that final puzzle will always haunt my dreams

Just not possible without a walkthrough due to excessive pixel hunting and no indication you would even need to click various places.

Additionally, though the code will be simple you'll need to "earn" it in-game before it'll work on the main door.

However, this is still bugged because for example the game told me my code was all zeroes when in fact my code was 6 (discovered through trial-and-error). The final code will be random and I believe some single-digit number. Maybe it tells you the right code maybe not, but just try all single digit numbers once you have "earned" the in-game final code.

And after that you'll never want to play this game again.

SPOILEYS AHEAD

"Escape the Room" is one of my favorite genre. This one is good, but there is indeed flaw.

The main flaw, of course, is the pixel hunting.

"Escape the room" is basically "Point and click" with less adventure and more puzzle and smart thinking. The genre itself makes it poetic, even in a subliminal way - "To get outside you must think outside". That being said, as point and click gaming relies on pointing and clicking (what else?) then the experience is negatively affected as the difficulty to point (and, therefore, to click) is increased. The window note is the best example of this.

In short: It won't matter if the puzzles are good if most of the time the player has to search the right spots to click.

Speaking of: The puzzles were nice and got me stuck for a time. Nothing too hard though. When I saw the Rubik I shaked a bit, but thankfully it was not really needed to solve. And the ending made me crack!

Fourth wall was brought down without exxagerations too. Good thing. Other than all that, a good, above mediocre game.

What's to improve: Well, the basics, of course!
1- Minimize pixel hunting overall;
2- Multiple endings (even if only 1 alternative). Those are great and add replay value to the game.

Not sure.

Seems that it could be a good game, it's just that it was acting weird. It completed the game for me automatically. Not sure if it is my computer or the game, but the graphics were pretty good.

LOL

I did all the work needed to find the code, only to find the password is 0000000000003 I just wanted to yell "Sum'Bitc#" only to fall out laughing....Great Work :)
