I have a collection on Itch I use as a queue for games that I've found interesting or have been recommended to me. Sometimes it takes me months or even years to get to a game. I have no recollection of when I added Black Room into it. I played it over two nights way past midnight while dealing with some insomnia. I feel like that was the ideal experience.
This was great! I especially liked your reflections on playing alone as a kid - the way that expands your world by so much when so much else tries to shrink it (or at least that's my takeaway). I also really appreciated your devlogs - read them post-game and it's nice to see your thought process behind some of this, though a lot of it is felt through the game. A shame that even now the industry sees no meaningful change. Lots to unpack here and I suspect this'll be on my mind for a while. Thank you for making this!
