If it doesn't work, use IE instead of any other browser. Or the other way around.



My intention was to reduce the spatial navigation and move into a “mood” axis instead. In this game, your character gets into a situation in which he cannot know where he is or where he is going. He can’t even use his tactile sense.

The character is actually moving in a space, but the options available to him are governed by his state of mind (calm, desperate, out of control).

It's extremely short, but it's been a pain to do anyway. I should have sticked to "N,W,E,S,GET,USE,KILL GNOME".

Man, this one's hard. Keep falling off the window. I think.

Truth is, I developed the game on this past weekend. So the text is not the best and lacks coherence.

But have in mind that chaining senteces with "and this and that and..." is done on purpose to attempt to follow the style of the writer of the story the game is based on.

Thanks for trying it!

I like the concept of struggling with a sweater, but I honestly didn't like the game very much - while the lack of control is an interesting idea, I think it's a little exaggerated, making the game feel somewhat random. I'm sure it could be better executed - 2-4 options at all times instead of just 1-3, maybe?

Nice nevertheless. I also beat it on my third try.
