Really nice visuals. Enjoy the mood the lighting sets. Controls feel very smooth as well. Nicely done!

This game is very promising with some further development, the idea and mechanics are simple but good, but i found that the lack of sound effects or music makes difficult getting into the game.The lightwork is very cool, the start menu is very cool too but things like the font when you lose or win or the shadows being different color than the trees could be improved too with little effort and would improve the experience at all. Great game nonetheless.

Great game! I really dig the monochrome visuals, they feel really nice and render an unsecure atmosphere that goes quite well with the game's theme.

Cool game! Nicely done.

Spooky game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Low Rez Jam games, if you would like to take a look :)

Very nice concept - great use of lighting! The idea could be developed further with a back story and maybe some help or clues along the way. Music would really add to the atmosphere! Love the minimalism!

Smooth movement, and I like that running into a shadow is not an instakill. Attempting to find the key is very frustrating!

PRESSTART is on purpose. Most people mentally autocorrect and don't notice it at first. ^_^

You don't need to use Spacebar to start -- any key will work. Just make sure that the game has keyboard focus by clicking on the canvas.

A bit random but the PRESS START graphic actually says PRESS TART. Which is a giggle, but may be a mistake.

I also have a bit of an issue that stops me playing. Space is used to start the game, but it also scrolls the page down and therefore stops my input when I click on the game again.

Can't wait to actually get to play it though!
