this game sounds edgy

lets see if it lives up to the hype if not i'm gonna be very sad

You have a very creative game, one of my favorite entries. The only issue I had with this game is that, when I was typing it was hard for me to understand what was going on, and all I was so focused on typing rather than the story, overall great game keep it up! :)

Wow, this game sure freaked me out. Great job man! Scared me by me just reading some text and trying to type is as fast as I can. This makes me wanna get better at typing.

Really good game but i found when approaching a later stage in the game i was getting some performance issues and my inputs weren't working.

I'm sorry to hear that. I'll be looking into what might've caused the performance drops when I can. Hopefully the checkpoint towards the end made the issue a little more bearable. Thank you for playing and enjoying my game, nonetheless!

Haha whoops forgot to put the game here. It should be fixed now. Have fun!
