I really like the combination of 2D and 3D art!

I like the dramatic buildup! I thought the reversal at the end was nice too.

Unfortunately I didn't catch that you can run using shift, so I wasn't aware of that in my first playthrough.  I managed to bug out of the gameover though by jumping at the moment I got caught.

Also, maybe I was playing to cautious but by just walking and switch the flashlight off and standing still whenever you hear a sound, it's quite easy to find all the clues.

But all in all it's a really nice and complete package! Enjoyed playing it for the few minutes it takes to play it. :)
