Tried to run on my Mac Mini Late 2012 (Core i5), running High Sierra.  The .app file wouldn't run, so I entered it (it's a folder pretending to be a file , after all) and give execution permissions to the Unix binary file. It ran but was slow as molasses on the main menu. It hanged during the loading screen (eternal volleyball). Since I was running from terminal, I've got the error messages ( https://gist.github.com/TheFakeMontyOnTheRun/569bc346f2d13fbddddfb836ce58dc93 )  - there were many more.

A small note: the keyboard layout doesn't make it very clear what the inventory and run keys are supposed to be. Bear in mind that there are a lot of different layouts out there, even between countries that speak the same language (eg: I use both Brazilian and Portuguese layouts and it's astonishingly different).

Too bad I couldn't play, but hopefully this will help tracing the source of this issues.

Those loading times are crazy (regardless of the quality) but the game looks great.
The controls feel inspired by Dark Souls. Well done.
Note: My antivirus detected "TrojWare.Win32.Krap.T@101925166" on the "..\You_Are_Ephemeral_alpha_13_Data\Managed\Assembly-CSharp-firstpass.dll" file
Removing this file blocked my WASD and Mouse controls so here's a heads-up. This false-positive seems to apply to some Unity games.

I tried to play it, but my graphics card isn't powerful enough I'm afraid. Judging from what I've seen you have a very high memory footprint, perhaps you can optimize so it's playable on more hardware?

Check it out!
