Now he must repair his radio to get home, FAST. (Lots of swearing*)

Your game starts at the 5 min mark

I enjoyed that, it was a good laugh, thanks!

Tried it out...

Gave it a go...

It was short, could use a lot of polish and made into a grander (Larger) game experience but it was overall, for the time it took to beat it? A solid short horror game.

Thanks for the feedback. We made V.1 in 48 hours for the Global game jam. I'm going to polish it up and I'm certainly considering making a full game with this mechanic in. Glad you enjoyed it :)
