Really neat game! I included it in a compilation video series of all of the Mystic Western Game Jam games, if you'd like to take a look :)


cool river hub environment and contrast between areas, good use of lighting and shadow. didn't quite parse the whole story out but perhaps i missed something?

The ending was fantastic, and I think you really nailed the feeling of the mystic west. Love the black and white story sections too! Well done team, I wish you luck in the future.


Impressed by the ambition of this piece! Expressive way to tell a story and great to see so much ambiguity to it, appreciated. Not 100% sure I "get" the decision to feature two such disparate styles between memory and river... it's nice, but I'm not quite convinced by it right now... will think more.


@astrochili Omg. Such embarrassing design... You click to enter the bonfires, not press enter (⌣_⌣") I will have to fix that for a new version


It looks beautiful, but I can't do anything with bonfires in OS X build. When I press Enter nothing happens :(


Loved it. Very interensting noir style story game, and great music too.

One of my favourites from the jam.

Fascinating and actually interesting...


Really beautiful game. I loved the diner-wallpaper-textures on the daylight canyon and all the audio, especially the wilting, haunting song in the finale and the crickets in the supermarket parking lot. I also liked the low gravity in the fire scene- floating down over the burning building was a very surreal, out of body experience. Very expressive of that kind of sudden, disbelieving panic.

For the future, you don't need to include the .pdb files when you bundle a Unity game. They're for debugging and you can make your download size quite a bit smaller if you leave them out.


Very nice way to tell a story. I love the visuals of the black and white scenes and the starkness of contrast between them and the river scenes.
