This is a *very* short game "thing." It was created a long while ago as a way of experimenting with variables. While I had grand ambitions for it being a choose-your-own adventure with branching paths, I moved on to other projects, and so I present you with a single decision to make. Hopefully some find it semi-interesting. If anyone's curious how it was going to end, feel free to get in touch.

Hint: Touch the bloody light switch.


Wow, this IS very short, like you said. I feel compelled to ask you to make more chapters in this. I'd like to see more of what happens to this kid.

Great game. Gwely Mernans is a really mellow and creepy song. It really adds to the tone of the game.

I'm a take a shot in the dark. And say that this isn't animated in any way. But instead you took a real a video you recorded, and just applied a filter to give it that look. Because that looks way to fluid to be animated.

Close. I recorded the human movement sections and then animated by hand on top of it (essentially rotoscoping with a bit of tweening in there).

Nice graphic design, the game IS short (which I'm glad you mentioned) and the sanity metre seems interesting. Reminds me of Amnesia.

I don't know what to think. This game was very interesting. I certainly enjoyed it, but it's not a game for everyone.
