I like the game. The graphics are totally adequate for a puzzle game. I assume the 'out of order' puzzles will be added later. A few specific comments (I played EscapeFromRecycling_2017-03-11j_non_VR.zip):

a) Drawers don't close (at least I couldn't do it). That means if you open the top drawer you will never see what's in the drawer below. For the "find the passode in the drawer" puzzle this can be a showstopper.

b) The "change direction" converyor belt puzzle was a bit confusing, because the direction the belt is going is indicated by a number. I assumed the inital "2" meant I had 2 tries or something similar and wondered why it changed to 3 upon click. I think the number should be changed to a directional arrow.

c) I like that in the "count the number of boxes on the rack" puzzle the order on the keypad is slightly different than on the rack. If somebody came up with that deliberatlely, kudos!
