Is the PuzzleScript tag accurate? This doesn't look like a PuzzleScript game.

Really cool concept.  Would love to see it expanded upon.


I like the idea of focusing on the personal, material culture of cyberpunk over overt worldbuilding or character description. Good central idea, and one that I would love to see elaborated on in a longer game.

Is it possible to actually fill every box of space in the backpack?

Really impressive art - and especially impressive worldbuilding and backstory for such a short game!

I love the concept and the art! I wish there was an ending scene depending on which items Ive picked. I also found myself looking for a "Im ready" button instead of just waiting for the time to ran out. Having said that Im digging the game and Id love to see more!

*Id love to help you translate this game to spanish just bc I really liked your game!

I like the pixel art and music, and the dystopian backstory. However, the game ends abruptly. I had expected to see an ending scene depending on my in-game choices. Look forward to seeing more of your games!


Really interesting concept. Great art & music. I think I was expecting a little more pay-off at the end. Could use a way to say "okay I'm ready" instead of waiting for the clock to run out. Would like to manipulate the environment to find items: opening and closing cabinets, for example. Good work!
