Shrunken down by the YouTuber known as “Sven”, players are now trapped like a guinea pig in this cardboard maze and need to survive against evil toys and traps. With mediocre office supply-weapons as the only chance of making it out alive, players will need to be smart in this challenging stealth first-person shooter (FPS) that is all be filmed for Sven’s YouTube enjoyment.
