If you feel like trying a little experience, play the Apartment:

"Dark Acre's The Apartment is a first-person point and clicker that "explores abandonment and decrepitude through the senses of a care home resident" and is part of Christer Kaitila's (Mcfunkypants') One Game a Month initiative.

Don't panic, as the game takes a while to load its crisp 3D graphics and starts out intentionally fuzzy. Players must explore a small apartment room that appears to be locked from the outside, discovering clues and using objects to further the experience. "As the narrative unfolds based on a willingness (or unwillingness!) to explore the environment, the player is left with the sense of relief or emptiness at their condition," describes the developer."



It's a one shot deal with no possibility to save.


HERE is the link to the game.


Enjoy.

For me it isn't a pure point & click as you have to use keyboard controls also.

LeBelleRachael, maybe finding the eyeglasses nearby where the game starts can be of help or post at Hints to get some help from those playing the game.

Give it a try.

Unity allows you to play 3D browser games. It's like flash player, you need it to view certain things. It is safe to use.
