At last I understand!
Pretty short game. When I was a few years younger, I thought this was the darkest, scariest flash game ever. And then I played Exmortis. I was finally able to stride through this game confidently, and found out just how short it was. I had beaten it before, just zooming through it with a walkthrough and thinking of it as too short. But the backstory made up for it. So, good work!
