While the game essentially has you solving puzzles in complete darkness, the setting and developments make the effort worthwhile.

A top secret experimental military facility has a primary power failure. Marina, a plucky young soldier, wakes up in the middle of the crisis, injured and disoriented by the absolute darkness. Recalling her training, she must make it to the Shelter before her commanders invoke protocol 13. Along her way she uncovers clues about the fate of the facility as she grapples with her own evanescing sense of self. This short game is the winner of the April 2012 MAGS competition. The theme of that competition was "distorted senses".

Very short game with interesting concept and good atmosphere.

By yarooze on 13 Jan 2013
Very nice short game. Everything in this game is exactly as it should be. Definitely worth playing!

By Deanerl on 11 Aug 2012
A quick experience that is definitely worth playing.
The game has you in complete darkness for the majority of it, but that is what makes it so gripping; its as though you yourself are trying to feel for a way out in complete darkness.
It actually scared me, so I had to play on easy and in a window, and to me, this means its good.

By alvorsam on 8 Aug 2012
Very short. Easy. But I enjoyed playing it! Good story, and the music cues works fine. Would recommend everyone to try it on Hard Mode the first time they play it.

By Duzz on 3 Aug 2012
Short and simple, but a great concept that works perfectly with the tense horror atmosphere. Definitely worth a play.
