I really like all of the little things that are in here. The way the enemies sneak up on you and hide under the tables, and the way you light source changes to a cone whenever you're attacking, really nice subtle touches. Great work! :D

This is amazing so amazing that I need to split up the comment

Art

Its art is so creepy and sinister that the main player feels out of place, like she walked into a horror game accidentally.

Music

*Shudder* This is creepy, hair raising and on top of it all it reminds me of when I was afraid of Don't Starves creepiness brings back spooky moments.

Sounds

The sounds were nice and pretty real from the spray to the character being hurt.

Gameplay

The mechanic of torching enemies is awesome, the lighting is amazing well made and the gameplay never felt boring, rushed or broken at all.

Final Words

It reminds me of Don't Starve from the 2.5D look to the Tall Bird Looking Enemies to the burning, the music, the whole dark atmosphere in fact replace the main character with willow and it could be considered a Klei game, It was unique enough to be its own thing however and I loved it. 5 Stars all round.

Cool game and the concept is just really funny. Would've been nice to have a sound if you killed an enemy, because now I sometimes used too much hairspray to kill them. But it didn't make the game worse. 

Keep up the work :)

Really cool music and lighting effects to complement the great hairspray mechanic.

I loved the 2.5D graphics, kinda reminds me of Don't Starve. The lighting and music are also well done, but I can't seem to find the exit of the game.

yeah...  sorry!  we did not have time to add the exit and endings.

Very atmospheric with the lighting and sound design! Cool animations too. Couldn't manage to win it though, as there appears to be no exit? 

Developer

yeah... we ran out of time!  sorry :(

I always enjoy the 2d backgrounds with 2d characters. The cut out looks to the art added an extra layer to that that I enjoyed. Fire effect was pretty cool as well.

Art is so beautiful and the Shadow and lightning effects art great , it's cooler than I expected .

Art and feel was great! Very creepy. I would like to see better feedback when you're roasting the demons as it doesn't look like they are affected by the fire until they die. Either the Sprite changes a bit or they slow down or something :)

thanks for the feedback! 
yeah, that was something we planned to add in, but ran out of time before we got it in there.

I love the hand drawn characters and sound effects.
I wasn't able to see the whole title screen the options were off the side of the screen

Developer

thanks for the feedback geekdude!
i'm not certain, but the title screen issue might have to do with what resolution you pick before running the game.  i'll have to check with the coders on the team and see what they think.  thanks for playing!
