About This Game

Made within a month for NaNoRenO 2023. Now enhanced for Steam!

I, the great Cautionne, Disciple of Danger and Emperor of MalViolence, am holding you as my latest test subject.

'Course, you trespassed on my lair first, so it’s not like you can complain.

I get it. You wanted something from me. Or your boss did. Or your boss’s boss did.

So how about we make a deal?

You solve my escape rooms, do a little lab work, consult on a deadly trap or two, and I'll let you leave scot-free. Doesn't that sound nice?

But before you go, let me give you some advice...

Don't make any mistakes.

Because if you do - you're not gonna like what happens next.

  • A gripping, villainous scenario written by Mado, Of The Devil's Brian Mulholland, and Z.
  • Escape rooms with several brain-bending puzzles, crafted by speck and Artificial Selection's KigyoDev.
  • 3 main endings and even more bad endings.
  • Animated, speaking CGs: all drawn by Mado!
  • Partial voice-acting by the talented Carrick Inabnett and Vyn Vox, with the direction of Very Berry Studio's Phebe Fabacher!
