I wandered around this world tonight.I tried typing. got some responses. found I got more responses if I used words present in the comments from the paintings.

worked out color coding behind the messages, grey for "Unrelated to you/white noise" green for Yours, and blue for Response to yours, which copies a word that you used for the start of the response.

Found I could get stuck if I force myself behind the cables to the right side of the computer (?) 

and finally, found a singular word that results in a RED entry on the feed.

the word "HELP"

As much as I tried pausing the feed, sprinting around using shift or middle mouse, I couldn't find a way to climb just that little bit higher to get on top of the computer. I dreamed that I could climb up, set foot on one of the entries to the feed, and ride it to freedom, to the outside. Fantasies of escape for a room with none.


Being from 2022 makes this game resonate. I've been dilligent in staying isolated for multiple years now. Locked in a room, looking at the complete nonsense of conversation flowing by, getting replies to me calling out in the only way I can, only to see the responses are all meaningless.


But in the back of my head, I still wonder. Can I escape? Is this a puzzle? Is this a test? Or is this just a mirror being held up? Am I typing this just out of hope of getting some additional bit of info, someone else who's played this, who's found more than me? I don't know.


Have any of you all gained freedom from the room? Or are we all in this together? Seperated, but united in the inability to escape?
