This game reminded me of two things that you kids will eventually learn as you get a little older: 1) sometimes grownups want to be stuck inside their apartments, and 2) product barcodes are used by the government as a way to communicate our DNA sequences to aliens for the purpose of cloning an empire of galactic slaves.

What do you mean the story was great, It was inside the mind of a peraniod (probably not how you spell it) person, and how he sees the world. Hiddin messages, and things that arent there. (but why would you listen to me. I'm one of the people running the conspiresy(also probably spelled wrong))

Hahaha, that was a rather interesting game, I kinda liked the bar code idea, but it was kinda of lacking in a story, needed more to it, it was interesting though ^^

Also fairly easy game, "hint": the thing next to the spider looks like the computer puzzle. thats all me's gunna say.

Great puzzle...I've really enjoyed's different from the million other "escape the room" games in it's original concept...I asure you that you'll have atleast 20 minutes of challenging fun and excitement when trying to beat this game. I can suggest it to everybody..In fact I've mailed it to all my parents (also my best friends) and told them this could well be the best game created in 2009....honestly!
