Hi Aaron, thanks so much for making this game. I enjoyed very much the narrative, well done, I could see the places you wrote clearly in my mind in most cases. I encountered an issue with a command of "Go North" further in the game, really don´t know if it was really the game or my computer, but fixed it by restarting the program. Congrats on getting it released and I hope to play more of your creations!

This was a great first entry! I haven't played a good text adventure in a while, so this was a real treat. I loved the atmosphere, and detailed descriptions. Really cool concept, and the ending was a trip! The environment descriptions painted some great imagery in my mind, and the background ambiance made it easy to get lost in that world. I love what you've done, and I'm so stoked to see what you create next! Keep making awesome games!


thank you so much for all you’ve done & the support you have given me over the last few months. Glad you enjoyed it. Looking forward to improving upon the foundations of what I’ve learnt. 

Yeah I’ve made a couple of mistakes but that’s all part of learning. Thanks again for playing!


I miss games like this, solid effort for your first game bud. wee bit of constructive criticism at the end of the vid but nothing major :) 

thank you so much for playing, I really enjoyed your video. 100% agree with your summary at the end & I will obviously look to improve on this as time goes on. There are a few things in the works to add more to the game to ensure completion is attainable for all. Once again, great video & appreciate you taking the time to play 

A solid game, I enjoyed playing it. I'd definitely recommend this to everyone else who's interested in horror games!

Thank you so much for checking out & playing my game. The support helps me greatly! Left you a like on the video :)

The surrealism in this one and the imagination that went into the environments and just different places and creatures, especially the ending, it's crazy how strong it felt while only being in text form. Well done, congrats on releasing your first game, from the look and feel of this one you just have to keep going and make more, love it :)
