Linux ver. crashes as well...

Developer

Yes, some people have been reporting this as well, I apologize about that. If you'd like, please try the game using the Win version through PlayOnLinux or Wine. Sorry again!

This game looks great and it feels pretty good with the exception of the excruciatingly slow movement. sadly I couldn't make it past the RATS. I ended up rage quieting. sorry

Developer

Thank you for playing and for the feedback! Yes, that is fair enough. Unfortunately, the speed potion hasn't been working sometimes, and the rats are too overpowered. I'll upload a fix and a balancing patch on or before this weekend.

Unfortunately the game crashes as soon as I select "Play" :( I'm on macOS.

Oh no! I'm sorry about that. Does the same happen with the GLES3 version? Here is the link: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1oH8tdsJXA6WK5Fw_KDAgZapid1UuWLgr

It still crashes :( No idea why. But hey it's not your fault!

Developer

Next time I'll make sure it works on all systems! I haven't used it, but I think you could play it with the Win version through PlayOnMac as a last resort.

Crashes on mac for me as well.

The stone-eater rats and the rockcrusher bats made me feel like quitting the game. A bit unfair giving the slow movement of the statue. But the overall game is great, nice choics of sprites and sounds. Nice job!

Developer

Thank you for playing and for the feedback! I realize now that the feeling of unfairness really hurts the game, I'll work on that for the next one.

Just tried again and finished the whole game, nice story you have there. Hope to see some work on it after-jam!

Love the dissolve transition between scenes. Audio was really nice too.

Gotta be honest, I didn't finish it. I got stuck at the spikes. The skeleton kept dying, and I didn't have the patience to walk slowly back and explore other avenues.

If it had faster movement, or shift-to-run, or fast travel I might have played longer.

Thank you for playing and for the feedback! That is fair enough, I'll make sure the next one is better!
