Real nice game! This should be on the front page.

Loved it, but very short. The 3D gave a nice way to explore, but I would have liked to have seen an ability to move my focus from object to object if I was able to see it, instead of having to click back/zoom out once or twice. It was pretty logical, I spend some time trying to interact with the grate. Some sort of text description of things might be an idea.

Thanks! If you download the app (free, links in-game) you'll also get the second chapter! We plan to update it chapter by chapter.

Yes! It was amazing!

A little short but well done. Took a while to figure out the keypad code: # + # + (# x #) = code

Some of the things that work are not logical, (spoilers) such as the removed door handle opening the dresser but the screwdriver not being able to, in reality a screwdriver would be much better than a door handle piece. some parts don't look like what they are supposed to be, I original thought the slip of paper with invisible ink looked like a semi opaque slice of rock, so I went around trying to pry things with it. It was ridiculous that the saw only worked on a small section of wall that in no way differentiated itself from any other, I would just finish cutting through the wall were I actually doing this in person. If the eye hole cover was electronic there would be a switch, I suggest changing it to have a switch and a cord running along a baseboard or the ceiling/wall corner, have the cord be damaged.
This sort of game should ideally combine observation and logic, some parts made sense and others seemed wrong even after solving the step. I would also suggest adding 5-8 objects that do not serve a purpose things that can not be inventoried, like the poster, other trinkets for the desk, valuables in the safe, clothes in the dresser, etc.
