Very strong, intimidating atmosphere that fit how you approached the theme.
Gameplay-wise I appreciated the lights that stayed on, that let you keep a sense of spatial awareness that made spacebar less necessary/repetitive. And I think the final levels mazelike nature really aligned with that stage of the theme. Also appreciated there that you kept the paths already traveled lit so it wasn't as much of a memory game.

I now feel tortmented. Ty.

I'm impressed that you decided to tackle such a heavy topic in a game jam. I think you pulled it off respectfully. The arts style was well done and suited the themes. You could probably use more voice lines so that it does not start to get repetitive too early on. The game play was fairly straight forward with an effective risk/reward mechanic.

Thanks! We were definitely nervous about pulling off this kind of topic, but we really wanted to really go for it. We have been trying to really create more experiences in games that are unique and so that's really what we were trying to do here.  Glad that you enjoyed it! Thanks for hosting it!

We have a deep dive into some of our coolest graphs that we'll put up later today! Our Audio system is all Bolt!
