Andromeda Laboratories, 2025; Unknown to the public the United States government funded a biological and weapons maker known as Andromeda Industries. Andromeda Industries created everything for the US government from firearms to highly advance missile guidance systems to biological weapons. Following the success of there inventions for the US government, Andromeda Industries received trillions of dollars to open up a new research and development group to redefine the means of physiological warfare against the enemies of the United States. By 2028, Andromeda Laboratories created a device that could teleport subjects into an alternate reality suspending subjects into their own subconscious mind. The device was nicknamed "Mad World".

Secretly executives of Andromeda Industries decided to test their creation on their own people, people of lesser importance to the company. One by one lower end employees began to disappear within the company. Official word from the CEO and President of Andromeda Industries stated that the company needed to make major cutbacks. People began to question the reasoning behind the ongoing statements from the CEO and President of the company. Those who questioned them soon ended up like the others.

In the coming days Mad World will be complete and the enemies of the United States are about to experience madness like no other. But before it can be tested on the battlefield, one more test subject needs to be tested; designer and creator of the Mad World device, Doctor William H. Wells, former top research and development scientist at the Black Mesa Research Facility.

"The great proof of madness is the disproportion of one's designs to one's means."

I thought it was interesting and showed some potential. You may lose some people cause this was more of a first person logic puzzle book. I like these kind of puzzles myself and liked the idea alot, but I think you'll lose alot of interest among the average gamer.

I have to agree with possum, the biggest problem was trial and error. I could not figure out the 2nd lvl, but simply tried different bridges til it worked. Also, when I played through, it didn't automatically switch to the last lvl, I had to do it myself.

I found Prime Factor easy and didn't have to reload at all, but math is my strong point. I would say make the puzzles more challenging, though I'm still thinking through the 2nd one. The real challenge is figuring out if its possible to prevent the trial and error approach. Otherwise, there's no challenge involved. The music worked nicely.

Interesting experiment in minimalism gameplay. But quick save and trial and error makes it so you don't need to know anything to get through the levels. Might be interesting to have more of a final judgment, where if you got too many wrong then they kill you. instead of instant death after each wrong answer.
