this is such a good game, but once i unlock cam 3, I can't walk. WASD don't work, no keys on my keyboard work. I even tried clicking and dragging. This is probably a glitch but still annoying. spent like 20 minutes on this just for it to break ;-;

Oh no :(

I'm not sure what would cause that. If you enter in the last phone number you can skip to the end and try again. That's all I can say.

you need to use the desk cam

oh right. I forgot that was needed. Thanks so much haha

The real flies were the friends we made along the way

🪰🪰🪰

oh never mind, those are the real flies

Okay, so, I've used a caesar shifter and I typed in "www.jetsimon.com/flies.txt" but it isn't working!

that is so weird because when I click that link it works for me.


SPOILERS THIS IS WHAT THE WEBPAGE SAYS DO NOT READ BELOW IF YOU DID NOT GET THE ANSWER


open your eyes  555-990-9413  salvation is only a call away

Link wont work, does it start with www. with .txt at the end?

it does


The link works for me so you must have a small typo somewhere.

If you look at some let’s plays they show it usually.

Wow, just wow. This is amazing! Gave me real bad goosebumps LMAO

(+1)(-1)

aw shucks thanks 

Hi,

Unfortunately it seems like the link you put in the first puzzle has no actual domain. I'm not really sure what to do from here.

the link works for me. Are you sure you have the correct solution?


yours should end in .txt

Ah, okay. I think I understand what I'm meant to do now, thanks!

oh my lord

Honestly super interesting game. I was kinda on the edge of my seat XD

Wow, good game.👏

(+2)

really like this game it feels like "don't feed the monkeys" but as a horror game, I would love to see this idea turn into a bigger game with many more...... Monsters? I don't know all I know is the flies slowly opening the jar scared the living sh!t out of me really good style to would recommend 

(+1)

Thanks! Yes "Don't Feed The Monkeys" was a big inspiration. I love that game!

(+1)

omg same I love it to, I'm not good at it but love it nonetheless

yo scp references? 

inspired by scp yes

good game, good game! had fun with the cipher :P

I liked solving all of the puzzles and the graphics!  A bit of a weird game too.

Weird flex but ok

(+1)

took so long because i didnt think about ciphers :/ i was zooming after figuring that out tho Still a great game love the camera effect

:( not supported by x86 computers

This is great! i own a computer that runs windows 98 and its graphics look just like this. great job! :)

idk if im doing something wrong but i only have access to one camera? even when i press 2 i only have the computer desk and cam 1 :(

you need to unlock more cameras. If you press 0 you can go to your email to find clues.

nvm! figured it out lol, awesome game

Glad to hear!

wow. That was a good game, made me think. Good job Jet Simo

:))

(+2)

Bit confused on what to do because right after I receive the email to release the flies nothing really happens and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong I would appreciate some advice

(+1)

You can move from the computer.

Thanks I feel dumb that I didn’t try that. Cool game ending by the way.

Thank you.


yes there is a message that pops up saying you can move but I admit it may be somewhat easy to miss


thank you for playing until the end :)

how do i move from the desk ?

Wasd when u unlock it 

I actually really enjoyed this! This game was super enjoyable and really quite difficult but in the best way. I loved playing this (even though the man in the room scared the crap out of me) and wish it was longer! Is the dev planning on adding to this game or making more like this? Super fun, would definitely recommend.

I am considering making more games in this universe. This game is already tied to a couple of previous games. Unsure if I would do CCTV again or not. Time will tell. I like to mix it up. I am a big fan of puzzle/escape games though so it is likely.

are there jumpscares???

(+1)

Spoiler: only one minor one :)

(+1)

It scared me when the guy was looking at the camera, I went straight to the cam 1..you did such a great job! it gives me silent hill vibes when I started walking

Happy to hear

I featured your game in my video - 

(+1)

Thank you for playing!

(+1)

Such a good, short game! Love the simplicity of it, yet there are complexities that make this game stand out from the usual indie horror fare. 

(+1)

Watch for this man's great voice acting!

you're too kind :)

I'll be honest here. It took me 25 minutes to figure out the very first thing you need to do in this game. My stupidity made for a great video though. Loved the visuals, the concept and the mystery. Thanks for making this!

thank you for persevering !

This game was remarkably fun! The attention to detail with the spam mail was nice to see, and the website element made the game very engaging. I can't wait to see what you make next.

thank you very much :)


make sure to follow to see future projects lol

AFTER SOOO LONG nice feature where you go to other websites to find it out

thank you for sticking with it and solving!

Ive been playing for bout' an our and I still cant figure it out

There is a walk through on YouTube if you need! Or a let’s play. I’m especially a fan of Adrionic’s let’s play.

thx but I just figured it out

took me by suprise by how much time this took for me! rlly good, i suggest it :)

Thank you for playing

i nearly shit myself at that man , very cool game though

im happy to hear you are unsoiled!

This game is so fantastic and polished and fun hard to believe it's made in a game jam. Love the art style.

Thanks a lot :D

It needs to be stressed how great this was. I had so much fun playing it. Light puzzles that aren't too difficult but enough to leave you satisfied. The atmosphere creates a sense of urgency within a twisted facility and in the end it all comes to chaos. Again, fantasic and I'm really looking forward to what else you put out! Good stuff JetSimon!

thank you ! I will not disappoint :)

It might be my computer but the link from the decoder http://www.jetsmon.com/flies.txt doesn't work for me. It says that the website can't be reached and to check spelling..

jetsimon.com not jetsmon

oh, that's what the decoder gave me.. Thanks!

Amazing puzzle game!

A good puzzle game. Congrats.

Thanks for playing another one of my games :)
