Featuring constant heckling and sarcasm from an unreliable narrator, players must solve a variety of puzzles while working out for themselves which advice can be trusted, and which instructions need to be ignored.

With many different predictable and unexpected ways to die, the player is told to keep trying different things, all getting them closer and closer to their front door, and to freedom.
