I love this interactive approach to 'The Raven' and it really is a fun way of interpreting Poe's story. The parallax effects are great, the eerie music adds to the atmosphere, and getting the player to quote the iconic line is a lot of fun. This is a original idea for a game and it really did stand out in this jam! I think the only things I could say that may have improved the experience was figuring out when to quote (spacebar does nothing when flying) and adding a bit more variation to the scenery as the slow dialog does draw out a little. But what a great inspiration for a game! 

Thanks for submitting this game to SCREAM JAM!

Well that's original! It's more like a narrative game. I little bit more of interaction would be appreciated. Good work!
