Looks and feels cool, also the sound i very great, but sadly its not really finished!

But it still has a ggreat atmosphere :)))

I'd like if you''d also rate my game :)))

Developer

Thank you for your kind feedback.
I will check out your game too.

Submitted

Cool sounds, and nice aesthetic. But like others said, it felt unfinished. I went in the top left door and then nothing happened. And nothing else really did anything as far as I could tell.

It's a good start to something though. 

Developer

Thank you for the feedback!
Yeah we couldn't really implement all our ideas. We want to keep working on the game after the jam.
Was our/my first jam.

Submitted

Good ambience, but not much to do as it's very unfinished. I would have been interested in finding out what's behind those weird doors.

Opening the door in the top left throws you out of bounds or something, and entering the locked chest's code doesn't do anything.

Hopefully you can complete this game one day!

Developer

Thank you for your feedback.
The fact that you want to know what's behind the doors is good to hear. We want to keep working on the game after the jam.
We'll let you know. Maybe you can check it out.

Difficult to give an honest rating if the game is unfinished :( Too bad you didn't have time to make what you planned to.

The atmosphere and setting seem interesting and creepy immediately. 

Submitted

Creepy atmosphere of a dancing shadow over a little girl.

The game has little gameplay yet, but already has a lot of atmosphere. Promising!

Developer

Thank you for your kind feedback. 
Was our first game jam and it is good to hear all the nice feedbacks although the game isn't really finished yet.
We want to keep working on the game after the jam. Maybe you can check it out then.

I loved how the theme was immediately apparent and I definitely wanted to find out what was behind the lock doors. So well done on the nailing the theme. Unfortunately when I went through the first door I feel behind the wall and my shadowy friend just rubbed against the wall. I tried a couple of different approaches but couldn't get any other outcome which is a real shame as it looks like there is a great game behind that bug!

I see blue cat, I press play. That is how it goes.

That aside, I liked the ambience and sound of the game, but it was not clear to me what I was supposed to do. I picked up the two items from the floor, tried interacting with the door but that just locked me up.

Unfortunate, because I wanted to know what else this game contains…

Either way, well done in creating the atmosphere in the room :D

Submitted

Very nice atmosphere and visuals! Good job

Developer

Thank you!

Submitted

blue cat clickbaited me, tho i likes the visuals

Developer

The cat excist, but we couldn't implement the cat yet.

Nice work !

Developer

Thanks!

I love the music and sound design and the light to see hidden messages is fun. That being said I got trapped in the closet and could not escape... You win this round shadow monster!

Thank you for your nice feedback.
We couldn't add so much gameplay yet but we want to keep working on the game after the jam.

Nice ambience and feel. Not sure why this shadow monster is immediately following me around the room. It was my initial critique and concern. It was very distracting before I got a feel for the game and room. Overall I like the ambience and pixel are. 3/5! Great job!

Submitted

I had a similar experience to LadyAdlihn, after some progress with the chest and using the light - I then suddenly disappeared behind the first door. Not sure if I did something wrong or hit a bug.

That said, the game looks and feels really nice.

Submitted

The shadow lady was very scary! I was worried that she was going to hurt me, but she seems to just follow me around. I was able to pick up a few items, move around the room, open a door, and shine a pink light on things. I found a treasure chest with a combination lock but I didn't find the combination. I wasn't sure how to proceed after that, and then when I went through the door my character disappeared!

I enjoyed the ambience of the room and walking into and out of the shadows. I'm guessing that holding Shift to run lets you get away from the shadow lady in order to complete some of the puzzles.
