This game contains a dark room that sometimes makes sloshing sounds depending on where you walk. If you attempt to leave, you are hit by a train.

In this game, you play a young man who travels in an old subway car, and the main goal is to Alt+Tab out, and wait for the trading cards.

The game is great! The story consists of the game being 9 cents, and having Steam Trading cards, and your objective is to get said Steam Trading cards. The gameplay consists of AFKing while you get these Steam Trading cards. And then once you get all the Steam Trading cards, you sell them.

And then uninstall the game.


A true masterpiece of our time.

I'll keep this a bit brief. Not absolutely terrible, but it's something I wouldn't really recommend. Game is less than a hour long, story is uninteresting and lacks real presence. Character walks the speed of molasses and a lot of the game, like most of it, is padded out simply because of how slow you walk and run (with limited stamina). The game crashed on me because of a faulty audio file that wouldn't work, but was able to bypass it. A lot of the 'gameplay' is figuring out which way is the right way to go with little to no direction, the worst of this being two sections where you crawl through vents. When anything exciting happens almost, it's an automated cutscene moment where you lose control of your character and they do some action in super slow-motion. The only encounter with a 'stalker' type thing is a flipping QTE sequence. Game is stupidly dark sometimes, you have a flashlight, but a draining battery pushes you to conserve batteries and lurk in the dark. Not fun to explore sometimes, and the game punished you for it sometimes, such as a scene where exploring can end up with you locked into a death scene with a train hitting you, and then having to start the game all over. Have to watch the opening credits (about 30 seconds long) each time you boot-up the game or die.

However, game does have some nice lighting in places, the atmosphere in parts is pretty good, there's one or two moments that I feel were well handled (a scene later in involving a window pops up in my mind), most of it isn't offensively bad, just kind of ehh. Game ends abruptly on a cliffhanger "TO BE CONTINUED...".

Despair.. Jesus. This game was really short, and had no action. The only "action" it had was a chase scene. But it ran like a cut scene and made me press "e" when ever I needed to do somthing. There was no story, and I wish I had looked at the other reveiws. I just wanted to play a new game so I rushed into it. I regret that. The "To be continud" at the end DID NOT want me to buy a second game (It's not out yet.) This game sucked, I don't recommend it.
