DISCLAIMER
If you are playing on browser and you use the ESC key often, I don't suggest playing in full screen, because in that case it will exit full screen mode before working

GAMEPLAY
In "Not today", you will have to analyze a scene and the actions of the many characters, and use your new knowledge to choose your own way to reach the objective.
Be ready. You only have two minutes and the characters will follow their paths as long as you don't interrupt them. You will have to rewind the whole scene to find out as many informations as you can. Will you unlock all the 7 endings?

HOW TO PLAY

WASDMove
SpaceInteract with merchants and gamblers
EUse your equipped item
EscGo back to the main menu / close a pop up window
EnterConfirm a choice
TabShow / hide map


ENDINGS (SPOILER)
For testing purposes, I will add a list of the different endings and how to get them.

Hopeless endingFail to save Elaine in time
Desperate endingSave Elaine after sacrificing someone else's life
Samaritan endingSave Elaine without killing anyone

very nice I played the updated game, feels very good. Was a little buggy when i click on the restart button but that only happened once. Really like how once npc says some gamblers cheat too which made sense.
