YES. Very nice game. I am looking forward to what it's going to improve into. It has nice graphics, imaginative story, good controls. My only problem was getting back to the house. I've collected everything on the map, but sadly I couldn't find my way back.

Thank you very much for your feedback! We will definitely improve the signposting aspect of our game and make it clearer from the get-go where the player is supposed to go.

I booted up your game with little expectations due to the lack of polish on your itch page, but I was remembered that I should not judge a book by it's cover. Seldom I have actually start to sweat from a horror game like this one... the monsters steps closing in, the shadow of the monster enlarging on the cavarn wall... every corner I slowed down and held on to my heart hoping that the monster was not lurking around the corner. Hats off to the developers for putting this together in eight weeks, as horror games are hard to pull off!

I would like to see the stun effect on the monster prolonged so I can escape within a reasonable time limit, right now after landing my shot and turning around, it was already breathing in my neck again and I was not able to escape in a fair way. In the beginning of the level I was also a bit confused on what to do, until I walked down the hill and then started to get the tutorial messages.

I would definitely recommend you guys to polish your itch page ASAP so you don't miss the attention you deserve. I can't wait to pick this game back up next week and give it another try. Goodluck guys, you created something amazing here and you should be proud of it!
