It was a rather funny coincidence that we'd both seize on the elevator game as a premise for a horror game and comparing the two games is pretty interesting. I opted for a more linear approach largely because I don't have the skills to do what's done here, create an immersive environment through text and styling that gives the sense of actually being in an elevator. It manages to capture the feeling of playing the elevator game more accurately and is more genuinely unnerving, at least to me. 

NOTE: I've noticed that attempting to restore from a save slot on the final "game over" screen seems to corrupt that save slot. If you're at the end title screen with credits,  please restart the game before restoring so you don't lose a save. 

I'm not sure if this happens with just this game, or is a weird bug in the software. I'll investigate.
