It is Pitch Black

by Caelyn Sandel, playable here.

It started as a dare. Stay in this room, your friends said. Just fifteen minutes, they said. Then they shut the door, the door got stuck, and there’s a grue on your trail. You have six matches. Now you have to find enough illumination to keep off the grue until your friends come back to open the door.

This game is a time-limited exercise in inventory management, especially because you can’t take things along with you, but to define it in these terms would not do Pitch Black a disservice. Pitch Black is rich in backstory and description, and uses visual effects to its advantage. 

Plus it’s set in New Washington okay that is awesome.
