A downloadable game for Windows


The first thing you remember is opening your eyes and finding yourself standing in a strange, musty old room. You have no idea how or when you get there - you only know that you should find someone, or look for a way out.

+ 'A' and 'D' to move.
+ 'E' to interact with objects or items in your inventory.
+ 'F' to open your inventory.

+ GameMaker: Studio.
+ Aesprite.
+ Audacity.

Well made just too short, don't stop you got something good going here!

Hey Your game is pretty kickass,

I'm working on a video project called time capsules focusing on game indie devs. It's similar to sending a message to your self in 50 years;

Only five questions for my documentary:

1. What feature in your game can the player not experience anywhere else?

2. What's the biggest personal obstacle you had to overcome in creating your game so far? (it could be super technical or anything else that you want to talk about)

3. Who helped you decide to become a game dev?

4. What feature of the game do you absolutely love that no one would probably ever find?

5. What do you believe video games mean to humanity?

First couple of episodes




if you have some game footage or even better developmental footage of errors or other stuff you'd like to show people who have never programmed a day in their life.

also best ways to contact you, and all social media you use because I'll be displaying those through out the episode.

I think if people dig the game and dig your story they might reach out for questions or colabs you really never know what can come of it.

do you think you'd be interested in being my guest?

Hey, sorry for the late reply. I don't have a lot of spare time these days, but I might come back to you on this if it's still okay. :)


Wplayed the game twice and found both the good end and the bad end all I did was one difference between the bad end and the good end but an amazing game overall I feel proud for seeing this game and checking it out. WELL DONE

Glad you enjoyed it! :)


I played a few times and I made a video. And I ... survived. I guess. :)


Thanks for playing! Glad you enjoyed it :)
