WASD and mouse, fly up to the objects, remember the brig in the fridge, remember your mother saw you off.

I’m so glad I stumbled across this game. What a great experience and it wasn’t what I expected. Initially, I thought it would be more along the lines of your traditional creepy horror, but instead it was more the horror of war and conflict, along with the implications of these thing on those around you. It was beautifully implemented, with the audio, visual and narrative all making this a truly emotional experience. I’ve done a complication of the some scary games on itch.io and included your game in this. It’s the fourth one in the lineup.
