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

A very-well made puzzle game, even if I am not well-versed into the Lovecraftian lore at all. Graphics were really good and really helped to set the atmosphere. I enjoyed it a lot (and finally managed to both banish Abhoth and get to Oneiros after 8 or 9 tries)!

However, is it intended that the "secret bookshelf" can be opened before the clock's puzzle is solved?

This was a very nicely made game. I love point & click!

I hate puzzle adventure games so I'm not a good customer on this but I have to say, as a fan of Lovecraft, this nails what I imagine the mood, visuals and setting for such a game. Very, very nicely done!

As others have said, simple walk sounds, pages turning, clock ticking and whatnot would add a LOT I think to what is already an impressive work.

Not my style of games but I totally respect your work, kudos! One of the best entries I've check so far.

Very nice graphic-adventure engine you have! Missing some background sound to set the tone and make it more immersive, but the art is superb, congrats!

H.P. Lovecraft plus beautiful artwork. Wow! Needs some improvements, Other people suggested the back button, yes, it was very confusing for the first time. And some minimalistic sound effects would help a lot. (walking sound, paging, clock ticking, some environmental sounds like wind for the outdoor).

I really love the artwork and style!

wow perfect! still trying to find the correct ritual though :)

Really, really beautiful!

Thanks everyone for playing so far. Just pushed a few bugfixes, including one that now enables the clock puzzle to be solved correctly (Which opens the path to the other endings :D ). Sound is in the works also...

Great game! You did very very nice job with the art and story. While playing this games one can see how a 64x64 resolution can give a really beautifull experience.

Beautiful art!

Stunning imagery, really sells the genre. The occult-y vibe is also well established. Would love to play with sound as well, and get those creepy chills to go along with everything you already have.

Great artwork! Very cool! One suggestion is that the "back" button when reading text could be made visible without having to mouse over.

Beautiful graphics! <3

Great graphics -- the text is a little hard to read at times, especially distinguishing D and O, or similar -- but the feel of the game is marvellous. It really misses sound!

Great graphics, indeed! The narrative is good, but I didn't followed the logic behind the books until my second try.

I'm a sucker for graphic adventures, so this was an easy one for me: beautiful style, great work. Love the theme too, love that it's a narrative game all together.

Missed sound though. Even just a loop of whistling wind would have helped set the tone.

Nice little mythos game. Lacks some eerie music and sound effects. There's a bug though. The first book from the left in the left bookcase has wrong position after it was read. Also there's a typo in the first left book in the right bookcase. It says the "lasr" instead of "last".

very nice graphics and atmosphere.

with fitting sound it would be perfect.

One of the best art of this jam!

I love the feeling, animation, and gameplay... I'd love to see another version with a bigger resolution this time!

This game is really great :) I love the Cthulhu myths. The art is quite perfect for the resolution! Sound would be great, I'll keep an eye on this entry.

Fixed the bug on the boss encounter on second run. Also fixed some randomization issues.

Hi ^^ I'll look into the bug later today. I pulled an all-nighter to get this online. I Figured that switching the pages might be a hard to tell... I will place some kind of icon there to make it clear. Thanks for the feedback!

Hey, this game is really nice and I want to solve it! Art is great.

I ran into a bug, after dying the next play-through had every book's text empty, set to o. Wasn't sure if it was part of the game at first, with all the going crazy from eldritch horror theme. I also didn't realise I could switch pages until I'd read a few books already.
