Very atmospheric and unsettling. Well done pixel art and a soundscape that perfectly matches that setting.

It's a bit slow at first (especially collecting water) but becomes pretty manageable once you get the fox mask. Collecting wood and meat even gets easy if you let the fireballs do the work...although that gets more difficult later on. Especially if you run into two devils at the same time, like I did on one occasion.

Completing the game took me well over an hour, as I just couldn't find the last health upgrade. The instructions were pretty well explained, though. My only criticism here would be the note that explains how you get meat. The rifle is pretty obvious and the meat could also be figured out, but the thing in the middle is a bit cryptic. Maybe a deer head or something similar would be more clear. But players will probably figure it out anyway.

Still, a great little horror game!

Thanks so much for the feedback, I really appreciate it! I totally agree with you on the instructions on how to get meat... the symbol that you (and many others) find confusing actually is a deer head. I think i just didn’t do a great job with getting the graphic on the note right. I ended up not fixing it just because it seemed like players were able to figure it out regardless.

Thanks again, and glad you enjoyed the game!

Creepy game! I included it in my A Game By It’s Cover 2018 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)
