BBTAN after 30 Minutes – What happens? What should happen? So What?

I did a game review of a game BBTAN, by 111%.  As a part of my after hours group I also present games and deconstruct them to discuss what they did right and wrong.

This game has a timer on the screen that counts down from 30 mins.  I got a lot of people in the room asking, What happens after 30 minutes?  Do you win?  Is the game over?

Watch the video below to see what actually happens.

So what do you think?  Was it a masterful troll job by the developer?

Or a brilliant technique to make people find what happens?
