No (completely spoiler-free)

Anything you want to say to players before they play?
WASD or Arrow keys for control.

Windows Defender may complain about the game... As far as I know this is a false alarm.

Also it does not like windows scaling so I uploaded a windowed version only. It you have problems, try to:
1: Set to ignore the scaling in the compatibilities tab of the executable properties
2: disable the windows scaling

Great mini-epic!
A great take on the film/scene.
For some reason, the "follow the footsteps" reminded me of a bit in "The Secret of Monkey Island", but anyway...
Love the style in this game, both visually and audibly.
The sandstorms are very effective - made me very paranoid that I'd walk into quicksand after all my hard work.
I think it would've been nice to have  some background music as well, as the footsteps get a tad repetitive after a while.
Otherwise, I really liked it - congrats and good luck! :D

Really love the atmosphere in this, very simply and very well done. I have died a many deaths in the desert.

Nice atmosphere, I liked the simple UI. Sounds were very appropriate even if sourced, nice job.

Cool idea and well done. I do wish there was a pause button, I inevitably hit Escape trying to pause and ended up just closing the game when I was so far in.

Also on a side note, nice to see a Godot game here... have to love FOSS game engines!

cheers! A pause button is a good suggestion. My include it in a post-jam version.


Thanks again!

This game it's very well done, it has that nice balance where it's not too much hard, but it isn't easy either. I had a great time playing it. Great Job!

I really liked it. Gameplay is simple, but the way things are obscured by the storm makes it challenging and interesting, and the audio is very effective at making it feel gruelling. Nicely done!
