A mysterious facility has hired you to test out their strange devices. Gain their trust to uncover the secrets of this place!

This is a spinoff/prequel to Unstable - http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/698969 - with a completely different style of gameplay. Feel free to play either game first!

Played with the mouse, but with some keyboard hotkeys:

SPACE: Play/Pause, Confirm, Continue, etc.
ESCAPE: Cancel, Open Menu, etc.
Arrow keys/WASD: Look around
SHIFT: Speed up (when playing), Advance step (when paused)
BACKSPACE: Restart Test
1-6: Blueprint upgrade hotkeys

A 1-man production.


NOTE: Most won't have this problem, but for those of you finding the saving unreliable, you may find trying a different browser will help. (Technically it's to do with how regularly your browser syncs its IndexedDB storage.) Unfortunately, due to how Unity games are hosted on Newgrounds, I can't fix this without wiping *everyone's* save data. I'll bear this in mind for future games, and I'm sorry to those who've had trouble.

A suitably amazing prequel to an amazing game. My one criticism would be that, like its predecessor, some of its later puzzles are excessively hard for a game with no walkthrough (although I understand why the developer doesn't like including walkthroughs in his games). Aside from that, however, the game is absolutely fabulous.

this game hurts my brain. 10/10

Very cute and interesting game

Clever puzzles and design! Feels like a Switch game, even though I don't have a Switch.

this is the best game I've played in a long while. good job!
