Three officers meet each other while running from the aftermath of the unknown disaster... They are unable to contact the other workers of the facility, but it's clear that most of them are already gone. They set on to find safety, but in these circumstances even describing what counts as 'safety' can be difficult.

Officer Alfred tells the story of an office worker, whose working pace experiences a catastrophic and mysterious disaster. This last version was made for the IGF 2011l And is a remake of a Ludum Dare #20 game form Spring 1011. It features a pretty interesting gimmick related to freezing time. In a way it could be said to be a 'sequel' to Timerocketxby, a game made by the same developer 3-4 years earlier.

A great, hugely challenging, time freezing puzzle game. IT is almost ridiculous how mind bending some of these puzzles are; Even without going after the optional briefcases you will likely find this a a challenge all the way through.
