A downloadable game

In this game, you play as Stanley, and you wake up in an unfamiliar complex. In order to progress, you'll need to manage what you can remember - 7 objects at a time. Once you encounter your eighth object, you may notice that first object you saw fade from memory.

Pass the tests, or escape to freedom? Good luck, Stanley.


WASD - Move

Hold Shift - Sprint

I just wanna say you did an excellent job on this game and I really enjoyed it! I gave it my best go at a speed run and I'd love to know how you think I did! A very good experience overall! Kudos!

This is incredibly overdue, but thank you so much for playing the game and sharing your experience! It's always great as a developer to get to see people play your creation, and I'm glad you enjoyed it. As far as I'm aware, a year later and you still hold the world record for fastest speed run!
