This is a pretty cool concept!


I really like this idea! It's satisfying to survive when your risk is at like 30%. Very cool :)


An interesting concept. I played the 4 times, got a high score of about 50. I felt that I did not correctly understand which of my actions were good, and which were bad, which is a bit of a problem if I am to understand a hidden mechanic. Is it dependend on the sound effects? The biome? How long I wait? The screen shake? As it was explained at the beginning of the game, waiting reduces your risk, but this is also the only mechanic i found out ´:D But with probably more gameplay testing, this could grow to an interesting game! And the graphics and ambience of the game are top! Good Job!


Its a very interesting idea, and the atmosphere is very well achieved! Good job! But there is a lack of gameplay; a bit variation in the latter would provide a better experience, and the fact that it is based around chance (even though it is also a bit strategic), dying is out of your control which is a bit frustrating in my opnion. Apart from these few details, this game has great potential! Great job with it!

Would love if you could check mine out too! Or not, no pressure ;)


I agree with Alarts comment, a bit more variation in the gameplay would improve this a lot but for a game jam I think it is very well done. 

I did not like the monster noise, it made me panic and then die! :D


thanks !


Unique idea, but I feel like more could be done with it, didn't feel like there was an end goal, just a high score system, most unique idea I've seen this game jam though! Amazing visuals and lighting, really gave off a creepy vibe.
Congrats for completing this game within 48 hours!

If you haven't yet, I would really appreciate it if you check out our game too!


Played and rated, i really liked the idea, with a little bit more of variety and new mechanics this could be an awesome game!


thx !


Love the visuals and audio, thought the idea was cool too! I really like seeing different interpretations of the one button idea

le jeux est cool est très addictif mais la pertes de point est trop importante par rapport a la perte du risque du coup le jeux deviens trop dure mais c'est cool quant même.
