A game about (your) death

Help me find the name of that brief interactive “game” where the narrator (speaking aloud, British I think) describes the actions of the player, marching us toward our inevitable demise… until we decide to disobey his narrative.

It’s a philosophical construct, but is rendered much like a game: first person perspective, exploring a series of corridors, offices and doorways. The entire experience is about 20 minutes, and ends with the death of the player. And Google is completely failing me!
No, it isn’t “Limbo” or “The End” or any of the others you find when you search for “game about death.” It’s not really a proper game. It’s a statement about gaming. And I guess it’s so esoteric that it’s impossible to search for. But it was so popular not so long ago! Mental.
