I lost it at the TBH button puzzle. Couldn't manage to click any buttons except the one under the YEH?
Really enjoyed my time playing, though. And it's very polished.

The game is clean and I loved the graphics of the computer. I also like the idea of using books to solve puzzles, a bit like the library in MYST 1. I just think that some of the puzzles were a bit too complex but easy (I mean, solving the puzzle was straightforward, just requiring a lot of handwork from the player).
SPOILER ALERT:

SPOILER ALERT:
For example in the login puzzle, I found really funny the idea that the red book is not the book with a red cover, however, the puzzle to get username and password is a simple letter and page count that you tell to the player. It requires a lot of concentration not to miss one letter or one page, but it does not require actually a real problem solving or clever connections between hints from the player.

This was a very nice and polished entry, but holy crap the Auxiliary D-Lay procedure was frustrating! 😄 I dunno if I'm just super bad, but I had to crank the scale of my desktop up to 175% on my 14" laptop to even have a chance at it. 😅

I enjoyed the other puzzles very much though, and the game fits the theme very well!

I couldnt really play all of it but man does this look polished. The writing had me chuckling quite a bit. The instructions reminded me of Keep talking and nobody explodes. Awesome work man!

This game does a good job of recreating the feel of old technology — it reminds me of Apple computers from the 1980's (or thereabouts). The color scheme and overall mood reproduce the experience of being an office-worker in a large beaurocracy. It brings back memories! I was hoping the sticky notes would provide the necessary login information, but to no avail. The puzzzles are beyond my ken — but that is mainly my fault (am not good at puzzle games, with few exceptions). Regardless, the retro-graphics and retro-sound are well done.

I guess one way to improve this game is to let the user log in (after solving a relatively simple puzzle), then increase the difficulty of the puzzles gradually. Just my 2 cents.

I survived! And I love this game! Lots of brilliantly creative puzzles here. The Auxiliary D-Lay was the hardest part for me, but it became manageable on fullscreen.

I guess I was hoping for more assignments after this first task, but it's already a hugely impressive amount of content for a game jam!

Awesome. Looks pretty, plays well and made me feel stupid. Well done!
