hey, i'd love to try out your game but despise microsoft with every fiber in my being. i refuse to install any software made or encouraged by them. could you make a linux version at some point? thanks if you can. no stress if you can't. also, i love the trailer.


I also use linux but dude why all the hate towards microsoft lol, but yes we really need a linux release i cant get to run it with Wine.


because bill gates is a creepy bridge troll who giggles about controlling the population and uses slave labor to make destructive software designed to fail and cost you hundreds of dollars every few years.

Fax. Developers which can't accomodate for systems other than Windows are either lazy and incompetent or have some weird ideological gripe that makes them think that even though they are indie developers they need to follow some big corpo dogma of putting all your eggs into windows basket.

i disagree. most people use windows, so it's only natural that most indie devs make their games for windows. it just sucks when i see a good game like this that requires me to give up my privacy to play.


As someone who was born into DOOM and Zandronum this game hit the special sweet spot of "games that I enjoyed every second of" and considering the topic matter of the game I applaud you.


Really enjoyed this. It's quirky and funny. Who knew everyone in Hell was so helpful?!


Loved this thing so much. Wish I could throw you guys some money, but I'll seettle for compliment.

*Abandon hope all ye who enter here*
*Spoilers ahead*

I LOVED how this is a story about how overwhelming bureaucracy generates complacency about procedure. The employees know that if you follow the system you'll never get what you need so they just turn a blind eye to help who they can. And everyone is so nice. I was terrified of why the *hell* Michael, hell's manager, would be so nice. Guess I should have noticed the name there hahaha.

I can only imagine that most assets were thrown together and then stylized to match (what with the 72 hours), but in the end it creates an absolutely cohesive visual style.

Absolutely loved the twist at the end.

Thank you VERY much for the support! It is for comments like this that motivate us to continue creating works like Redtape, you are amazing! Michael sent you a hello from heaven đŸ˜‡

Now we are accepting donations too!

And yes! In a day and a half we had the map textured! We work tirelessly as in hell.inc! 😈


funny, clever and accurate. Loved it!

Glad you liked the game! It was fun to watch the gameplay!! Thank you very much! 😈


corporate americ- i mean h3||

Probably one of the most creative indie-horror games I've seen in a while. Definitely a must play. The unique characters and unexpected story really give this an extraordinary atmosphere.


Nice, it works perfect.


A great kafka-like experience! I think it will be a new videogame genre now, kafka-like. It is also a mix between Mario 64 and The Stanley Parable. I will review it more in Portuguese - Avaliando sua build para a LD48 senti que vocĂȘs construĂ­ram primeiramente o level design e depois rechearam o prĂ©dio ludicamente. É um projeto bem ambicioso usando a Unreal e gostei muito que vocĂȘs prosseguiram e lançaram um pouco depois a versĂŁo completa! A Ășnica coisa que realmente me incomodou foi o uso de alguns elementos memĂ©ticas fora do contexto dos anos 90-2000, como alguns feedbacks sonoros como o “Oh Yeah”. Poderiam ter usado a tela do win98 tambĂ©m ao contrĂĄrio do xp. As referĂȘncias foram Ăłtimas fora isso! Adorei o S. (nĂŁo vou falar para nĂŁo dar spoiler) aparecendo correndo haha. NĂŁo pude explorar o suficiente pra ver se os corredores de cubĂ­culos eram infinitos mesmo. Foi um grande prazer jogar o jogo de vocĂȘs! ParabĂ©ns!

great jobs for full version ... GG AND FUNNY ENDING AHAHAH


Sadly the game kept crashing numerous times after entering the elevator when I needed to go to the second floor, and eventually it seems like it crashed so hard it refused to launch at all. This said, the atmosphere is absolutely perfect and I would really want to play the full version (or at least crash-free, hahahah). I would really be glad if you took the development further!

Hi Nishin! We are working to correct the crashes and finalize the game. Thank you for understanding, for playing and for the feedback.  <3
