Played it! Your writing is still great even for a 10 mins game. And as I mentionned before the atmosphere is on point, good choice of bgm's, too!
One thing I noticed though, green-haired blind guy and redhead girl aren't breathing in the last scene.

Ah, you caught that... very perceptive of you.

THAT... was a technical issue. I was putting in the plugin command to make them breathe, but they wouldn't. 
I skipped fixing it because the submission period (for the game jam) was about to end.

(Also, Thank you so much for playing & for commenting about it!)
