They already had an app "These robotic hearts of mine".

This was definitely fun. Great little puzzler, with tons of atmosphere.

I'm having a little problem with the suspension of disbelief though. Why is this guy in this place? A little intro, even just pictorial to stay with the mood would help.

I love the fear mechanic, but why are the monsters ignoring him (with a few exceptions)? If he only gets scared when his flashlight picks up a monster, then why not just turn off the flashlight?

I get that it's extremely abstract, and more of a puzzle than a story, but I feel so much potential or something epic.

A combination of factors. It's not very long and we don't want the hassle of having to convince people to try it. Also as an experiment to see if releasing a free game would drive more players towards These Robotic Hearts of Mine.

Ha, nice! Pretty sure you're the first person to go to the effort...

My bad! After you collect all the scrolls, the continue button probably shouldn't show up... Sorry, I'll fix that in an update.

Personally I kinda like the lack of context. You can decide your own answers to these questions...

But I appreciate the general "I want this to be bigger" message. That's not this game, but maybe something in the future.

Because no reason, it's a game.

Interesting, but frustrating. There's very little room for error in the later rooms, and I think you should experiment with a proper d-pad. Anyways, thanks for the game, I liked it (although I gave up in the room with a dozen monsters guarding the manscript).
Good luck with your future releases!

Well, I for one hope your experiment works... It may just work on me how long did it take you to put this game together? I'm quite impressed with the level of polish throuout...

I've been looking for a game like this for a long time, really good job but I also wish it was longer

Anyone know of any games like this one?

And here are the other 5.

I can post (spoilered) solutions, but I'd much rather post hints for anyone curious...
