Incredible work!! I love the concept and this might be my favorite use of theme in the gamejam! Beautiful graphics and that shriek... oh that damn shriek! Everything from the title screen to the short but excellent background story really immerses you into a world of magical lore. Great controls overall and a challenging but rewarding (very unique) experience! Truly a breath of fresh air in the platformer genre. Please expand upon this!!! A+++ GREAT JOB!!!

really nice art and audio, great concept. a little brutal to get through without messing up, but all around great job!

Great atmosphere and superb spritework! 

I can see the mechanics being very interesting to flesh out in a full game, with the elk walking around causing the danger area to shift around, pushing blocks to block the sound, using stealth tactics such as distracting the elk.

Played your game here, it was fun~

Love the creepy atmosphere and art.

This is a very unique and entertaining game. I enjoyed trying to hide from the screams and when I would miss a ledge and fall into the scream-beam, I was terrified. The scream does get annoying after ten minutes but you have to play through it to the end. Nice job!

Honestly amazing.
Fantastic use of space and level design in general. The multiple paths you could take throughout the entire level, and the fact that they each complimented each other with the core mechanic in mind, such as providing shade/shelter from the elk, was very impressive. 
The initial struggle, and then urge to get to the center, was something I found very engaging. 
Additionally, the atmosphere in the game produced with the elk sound, the artwork, and animation, (not to mention the lighting effect!) just wow!
I would say that it isn't as obvious maybe it should be as to when being in the light could kill you, I found that I died several times when there was no sound playing - or perhaps I'm just too eager!

Overall great game! :D

Great game man! loved it would boot this up and play it again for sure. I didn't quite make it there but I am interested at what happens when I do! 

Very interesting interpretation of the theme! Good job!

Thanks for the comment Zen00! You can move with the arrow keys left and right and jump with the up arrow. Also F1 switches to fullscreen

Great visuals, good use of sound, but you can't move?
