Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: So many systems in actual production really do have user interfaces that are almost this bad. It’s very cute that it ends with the clock flashing 12:00.

Con: It’s light and simple with no real substance.

From the ending, it's hard to say whether this is humor or horror.
