Makes Me Think

Was very fun to play, very well thought out and I enjoyed the puzzle for the password. Consider adding some imagery to make it more engaging. Perhaps consider having a message to go along with it too.

It is a project that makes a difference. I consider it a very creative project, very interesting in the way it guides the user, it gives the feeling that the game gives the user a lot of freedom to explore new paths and reveals a mysterious side (and horrific :) ) that traps the user. The pitch is quite good, it captures attention quite well. This game reveals that its engaging features have been well crafted and promoted. As an example, I didn't need many seconds after starting to explore the game as much as possible. In practice, it was a great effort that brought a very good result. I would consider inserting more images (although the game doesn't need images to captivate your attention, which reveals that the script was well structured) and, in the part of introducing the password that turns out to be one of the first great moments of pure challenge for the user, like the strategy games that exist, would keep it as it is. It's hard to validate a social purpose in a horror game. Even so, the mystery and strategy involved in the gameplay, with minimal but very effective resources, created a small miracle in the field of gaming here. Your project reminds me of driving a kart vehicle for the first time. That is, we are quite exposed to the quality of basic aspects such as the script, the gameplay, the complexity of the resources, etc. In this case, thanks almost solely to your creativity, you managed to create a project that was surprising, challenging and, above all, quite intelligent. I loved every moment. Good luck!

This game is pretty cool and very interactive. There were parts where I didn't quite understand what was going on tho and the passcode. Maybe add more as hints, to help users or be more specific on the instructions. Either way this was super cool and gave a horror feel to it!
