Has anyone else had trouble with the in-browser version? I can call people on the phone, but WASD/Space aren't doing anything.

This was so great. The humor kept me playing way longer than I thought I would. I kind of sucks you in more and more as you play. Very well done on every level.

Great! I would love to see this fleshed out as an even bigger game

thanks! for now I will invest time in testing other games but after that I want to spend time adding a save and expanding a little.

Very interesting concept! At first it felt like a lot to read and understand but once I got the hang of it I really enjoyed the game! The art style was very cool and the music set a nice mood for a puzzle game like this! :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

thanks! the goal of the directory is to bury the player in information that has to be selected to avoid spamming numbers every time ;)
