Hell: classic Mac-style adventure with no-where to go

Hell is a ghost of a game, completed in a rush for a game jam, but what's there is a perfectly dark revisiting of those lighthearted 1980s Mac OS exploration games from the age before Myst. Waking up dead, you find yourself exploring a series of surreal but oddly tangible places, many containing seemingly trivial decisions that will affect later events. You can zip through it in a few minutes, and there are tantalizing hints -- the operating system "frame", the symbolic references to a life left behind, the shadowy figures here and there -- that never converge to mean much of anything. But it's quite evocative and the author, ahintoflime, says they're planning on expanding it into a more complete experience. And the monochrome artwork is beautifully bitty.
