There's a spot in the top-right of the cabin that causes the interact prompt to pop up without anything to interact with. The "time" meter seemed to go up and down regardless of what I did in-game. Meanwhile, the "cold" meter didn't seem to change at all.

I think if you make this into a bigger game, it'd be better with a story of some sort. There's not much motivation to do anything as it currently stands.

Hello, thanks for the great feedback. If you're curious about the interact prompt thing, in that spot it triggers for the yak outside (because the living room space is actually where the game presents it to be, in the same scene as the outside behind the house facade, and although the interactions check if you're in the correct room to open them, the prompt doesn't check that yet). It's something I (Andreas, the programmer) forgot to add yet but will do in the future.

The stats will receive better designs as well. The time shouldn't go up unless it drops to 0 and resets, and the cold reduces rarely, only if you do an action and the time drops to 0 while you're either outside or in the living room with both the window broken and the fire off. These systems will definitely receive more work and be better presented soon.

Some story-driven communication elements will be taken into consideration as well.

Nice simple little scary game, Love the artwork, but not a fan of gore unfortunately, it has potential to be expanded to many different location.

Thank you! The sinister sacrificial themes of it were in plan since the beginning but if they distract from the overall atmosphere, things can definitely be adjusted.

Heads up on my screen at 1920 x 1080 the "Circle of Glass Shards" is covered on the book text.  Might want to fix that if you have time before deadline.

Did some things, it should be better now. Thanks a lot!
