This was pretty good! The story got me thinking about the ramifications of pushing for higher intelligence in autonomy. I enjoyed this! Here's my playthrough:

Nice video and commentary! You really deserve more subscribers.
This was visually beautiful.. not much to it though, it could have so much potential.. I hope you keep developing it.
The ending reminded me of a scene out of the film "I am mother".. even the way the story described itself seemed like it might have been inspired by that movie.. any chance it was?
Actually, I haven't seen the movie.
Pretty impressive coincidence :) it deals with a story where there's only a couple of surviving humans.. the world is ran by AI.. and there's a scene where someone opens the large bunker hatch to find an army of AI machines standing .. very much like in your game :) good movie
And good game
I was scared in the very first moment...hahaha
Great game hope to see more soon, thanks :)
Nice little game. Loved the atmosphere and the design. Great story!
I absolutely loved this game! The attention to detail was amazing and the game looked great as well as played good. I would definitely play this game if it was released. If you are interested in my gameplay I will link it below.
This is an absolutely outstanding premise that could be made into something more substantial. I hope you do!
Really liked this game. Nice quality graphics in an awesome looking environment. Great atmosphere, gave a real feeling of isolation, and the android dude was quite threatening. The one thing I felt didn't work well was the timer. It was too long. I had found a way out with still plenty of time left on the clock. I think it would be better with a shorter timer and a real threat of being chased in the corridors, having to hide and avoid. Still a really good game though with a cool ending.
Thank you! : ) As for the timer - it really depends, I saw some players struggling with this part and barely making it on time. Also (SPOILER) the timer is rarely set for 3 minutes, it's usually 2:30. It's set for 3 minutes only if you win the race in Day 3. As for being chased in the corridors - have you tried not making it on time? : )
Very interesting indeed.
