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 ;-;
flies in a jar
It is 2007. You are a security guard at the mysterious agency 'the FCL'. It's your first night on the job. What will you uncover? At what cost? Look through CCTV cameras and sift through emails to find out.
It is recommended you play this game with the sound on!
Left + Right Arrows or A + D to look around
1 to switch to camera 1, 2 to switch to camera 2, etc
TAB to switch to desk view
0 to switch to computer view
Spoiler: this game has a couple elements where you will to use the actual internet/your computer to solve them. You will NOT need to use an actual phone.

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
The real flies were the friends we made along the way
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?
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
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
oh my lord
Honestly super interesting game. I was kinda on the edge of my seat XD
Wow, good game.👏
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
Thanks! Yes "Don't Feed The Monkeys" was a big inspiration. I love that game!
yo scp references?
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.
THE FLIES ARE OUT
Let there be light
this Game Had Me On Edge The Whole Time JET lol
I made an entire decryptor when I was 13 so it was easy
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
wow. That was a good game, made me think. Good job Jet Simo
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
You can move from the computer.
Thanks I feel dumb that I didn’t try that. Cool game ending by the way.
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???
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
I featured your game in my video -
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.
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!
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.
AFTER SOOO LONG nice feature where you go to other websites to find it out
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.
took me by suprise by how much time this took for me! rlly good, i suggest it :)
i nearly shit myself at that man , very cool game though
This game is so fantastic and polished and fun hard to believe it's made in a game jam. Love the art style.
Amazing puzzle game!
A good puzzle game. Congrats.
