A downloadable experience for Windows

The answers are not hidden inside the game!!!* Read below. 

Jakob, I hope it is you who is reading this. I understand that making this public allows other people into our lives. I understand that you might not like that. But this is the only way. I tried to contact you on Facebook and you never replied. So what am I supposed to do?

Well, I decided to make it public. Trying to get people's attention. So you will also see it. And it worked. 

Look, you always said you like art & computer games. So I tried to make something on the boundary. For you. I spend months working on this. Please take the time to look at this. What else can I do?

If you are not Jakob then please help me to make this public. Get the attention it needs. You can even play the game! I mean, the game won't let you in far... But you can play until it kicks you out. Just so you know this is real. To convince yourself that what you are promoting is not a scam. But then please help me. Message Jakob on Facebook. Comment on the page, tweet it out. Whatever you can come up with. 

The game is completely free. There are no ads, no hidden costs. But there is also no money left for marketing. So I try, hoping for the best.

This is a personal short story. You need headphones or speakers.
Press TAB for the in-game menu. W A S D to move. Mouse to look.

*The game is made for Jakob Wanderath. If you are not him, it will keep you out by asking questions only he (and friends of him) know.  I dare you to try it, but I don't think you will succeed.

It's definitely one of the most unique games I've played in a while. Although most of the time I felt like a third wheel, I enjoyed it a lot and I am sure you will also enjoy it if of course you answer the questions of the  "narrator" correctly. Have fun! 😜

I hope Jakob will play this!

If you're not Jakob, I'd recommend you to give it a try anyway. I'm not sure how far you'll manage to go, but this is an original concept with a very personal story and there are multiple secrets to find.

Hey I found Jakobs homepage, looks pretty abandoned but maybe you can try to contact him there? https://jakobwanderath.wixsite.com/website

Sorry to hear that, could you tell me which version of Windows you are using so I can try to debug it?
Also, can you try to press TAB and see if a menu pops up? Maybe the brightness is just too low?  It might also just take a bit to load, maybe wait a minute? 

If nothing works you could try the browser version here https://no-context.com

My version of WIndows is 10 (about my brightness, she is high all the time), i will try to press TAB to see this and wait a minute too.
if this unlocks the game i'll let you know

thanks, I will try to test it on other PCs over the weekend. If nothing works, please just use the web version :) 

Ok :)
