that was awesome. voice overs turned a very simple game into a bad-to-the-bone game. well done

Super evil voice filter activated!
I used the A and D keys to navigate the level, W and S as suggested in the description didn't work :(

Wow, your game has amazing atmosphere. Good use of the theme too. Pretty interesting even if there is no way to "win".

Nice game, first time I played without sound, it was kinda stange but with sound its nice, challenging and unforgiving. The visual style is great. I will check this game out later again, may I can finish it then.

Wow, the atmosphere was amazing - first game to properly suck me in. I loved the light up effect on the floor, and the voiceover

Spectacularly creepy mood. You did a really interesting job of introducing new mechanics on the fly, without having to interrupt the gameplay or explain with text. Very cool experience.

EPIC. The first game i beat in this Ludum dare. I get addict, cool voice in off, cool story, very polish and good controls. GOOD JOB.

A really a great concept. With a little more love on audio(acting is dificult ^^), it could become something really cool.

Dammit this scary me a lot! Like the game concept, and the message behind it!

Haha wow, that was really cool. The last time I bother looking for happiness, that's for sure!

Really appreciated the level design, I liked how the level blocks were all individual items and a lot of them were interactive in different ways, nice one.

I actually sat there a minute in the beginning waiting to see if you would acknowledge that I didn't want eternal happiness, and I tried to find a way out without picking it up. I guess I could've closed the window at that point, but then I got lectured for just trying to progress the game :(

Well done on the theme and the destructible level design! And I was happy to hear zombocom narrating it :D

Excellent. I loved the mood and look of the game, and the narration was spot on.

Just perfect. I really love the atmosphere. The audio is also well done. Good job!

Nicely done. The audio was interesting, and gameplay felt extremely fluid.

If video games have taught me one thing, it's that narrators in abstract platformer environments are *always* evil.

Absolutely amazing! I enjoyed this so much, thank you! One of the strongest narrative games this LD so far - the way the entire experience was orchestrated by the voiceover was just brilliant. It really was creepy in a GlaDOS kind of way, but with a much drier humour - your accent added to the effect if you don't mind my so saying! The way the environment responded to you in surprising ways kept it feeling really fresh. I suppose I'd have liked a final encounter to finish it off akin to the dark area, but really I'm nitpicking - great work!

Awesome experience. The narrator, and other audio, really did it for me.

Nice game, the voice acting and the blocks that move are really nice additions. Looking past that, the levels don't realy include any challange or puzzles and I feel like giving us a close to unsolvable puzzle instead of just running forevenr would fit better with the game as it is.

Incredible intro, the voice is awesome! I like how the environment changes as you play

That was a very engaging game, thank you a lot for it!

I really enjoyed the voices - even though there is only one path, it did feel like it was reacting to your actions.

Cheers!

It's well made, but I don't see the connection to the theme.

Wow this game took my by surprise! One of the most engaging compo entries I've played, great work. It had me scrambling around, played with my expectations in an interesting way, and came to a finish before anything got tired or worn out. Great work!

Nice game and eerie voice acting.

I'm possibly a bit biased towards square character platformers in this particular LD though :)

I feel that the music loops could have been a bit longer, they got annoying very quickly. Besides that, the voice acting and dark colors really worked well to make an eerie, creepy mood. Certainly worth playing.

I can't decide between humor and mood, because it made me smile, am I a bad person? ;)
