Playerless: One Button Adventure is a puzzle adventure game you can play with a single button. You play a robot in a game who has become self-aware.

You interact with the game by pressing or holding a button. In this way you can cycle through different items in the environment and then hold the the button to select them. These interactions enable you to solve puzzles and move to the next puzzle room.

As the quest continues the puzzles get more involved and varied, although still using one button. Navigating mazes, tuning radios and navigating hazards, it's all more satisfying (and more difficult).

Running through this is a quirky sense of humour similar to that of Portal. You are stuck playing the game with one button because the controls and the game is malfunctioning and the players have characters self aware. It's intriguing to see where this goes, and how you can get there with just one button.
