Very nice, It did take me a fair few trys discovering the hitbox for the tip of the screwdriver.
I enjoyed it.

Altho i did get this error on what i assume was game completion

Thank you !
Yes this error is "normal" because the game is trying to load the next level that doesn't exist.

Quite short but fun anyhow. I liked the timer being presented as dropping down floors, that was pretty cool.

Good game with nice idea. The graphics were quite simplistic but fitted the theme really well. I like how you creativly used the theme and created this game. Good Job

A good amount of challenging. Also some scaring throwbacks to the The Maze. The one with the unbeatable end and the jumpscare. Amazing work on the game and graphics overall!

For me it dont work, there is only the screwdriver and no obstacles, it dont look like the instruction said.

Looks like you got the components in place for the game before you hit the ground floor. Nice! I could see it being fun. The elevator animation was subtle and I didn't notice it or know what was going on at first. Then after a couple manual reloads I figured it out. Keep it up!

Oh and one recommended upgrade. When the screen for level 2 doesn't load, you can catch the error and put up your title screen, "Out of Order" ;)

It reminds me the jump scare game when I was a teen.

Simple and expeditive, I like that. Great job!

FWIW, on Linux I had to run it with this command:

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. java -jar OutOfOrder.jar 

Otherwise it would complain with "java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no lwjgl in java.library.path".

Anyway, simple but fun concept! I like the random flavour text at the end.

As a point for improvement, you could add some sound effects, especially to make it clear when you can start moving. And allow restarting the game with the keyboard, so you don't have to move the mouse to the bottom right and then have it in the wrong place on your desk for the next attempt.
