This was really fun, nice work

Full Playthrough No Commentary

This game was a lot of fun! For a game-jam game, I really enjoyed the depth of the story. My only critique is that the enemy sections feel a little too scripted, so there's not a real sense of fear during those moments. Other than that, I had a lot of fun. Great game! 


The silent and lonely atmosphere and rich story-telling helped make this game a very enjoyable and effectively scary thrill ride!

This was a super creepy game. It felt very tense as you explored the lab. Great job. Can't wait to see what you make next! 

Hey! I did a big roundup on a bunch of games in the jam (including yours) with some thoughts on each. Figured I'd share it here for anyone interested!

I love it! ❤️

What a great game! I absolutely loved playing it! The way the story of the game progressed was great and the horror aspect was very well done! I'm very happy that this game isn't one of those horror games that builds up to a very predictable jumpscare!

I really like the concept, the artstyle is great, the game ran very smooth and I didn't encounter a single bug!

Great job on this one!! :D

very good tbh that wave in the beginning really got me lol. Good job!!

Hello, I played this game and I really enjoyed it, the concept was very interesting, it was pretty fun game, with all the reading and cutscenes, good work :)

You guys are so smart.

This game was very different from most and it definitely did give off the vibe of an older game. You did an amazing job on that! I didn't like all the reading but that is just me. Overall a interesting story and the seabed with the glass tunnel was very cool.

I really enjoyed this game. It had a great atmosphere, and the story was interesting.

So it ended being a interesting nice little game. It wasn't the scariest game ever but i liked the ambience and the idea behind it. Also liked the fact we still don't truly know what was happening in the lab. Even though we can guess with the hints given by the cassettes and other cutscenes. I was a bit surprised by the wave which strucked the cliff though. It looked cool as heck and the part in the underwater tunnel is the kind of thing that creeps me out in real life so it was a plus.

 
That's nice!

This is an very polished jam game that really shows off your skills as an animator and storyteller. Thanks for the experience! I posted a review of the game on the jam submission page, and did a playthrough video below: 

Show post...

good creepy

Are there any plans for a Linux version ?

Possibly, when I sort out the Windows build, but I won't be able to test it. 🤞

Amazing game, fully fleshed out story told with minimal elements. Loved the cutscenes!

Thank you!

Ah snap... I wanted to give it a try but i guess i will need to wait for the pc build.

Aaaaand it's here! Any bugs, let me know and I'll strive to squish 'em!

Is it just for Mac?

Unfortunately yes, for the time being. Until I can get a hold of my PC to create a windows build. Hopefully very soon!

Looking forward to giving it a go
