One of my top three games of the jam, not sure maybe tied for favorite. Love it.

This was excellent!  I loved the aesthetic, music, design,  and just everything.  Had a perfect  almost calming yet spooky retro atmospheric feel.  Great job!

Developer

Thank you!

Very charming little game, graphics and audio were nice too. Felt good to smash some skulls in with the bat pickup :).

Developer(+1)

Thanks, glad you like it! FYI no skellies were harmed in the making of this game, all skull-smashing is done in CG

Browser version doesn't work for me. So i can't vote. But as i see from the screenshot, game looks nice.

Developer

Mind telling me what browser/OS you're using?

Sorry for late. I use windows. I think it's because of my pc.

I like the game. I had fun and its one of the few games I could complete :) (Im not the best gamer haha)

Developer

Glad you liked it! My partner is not a gamer and I try to make sure they can finish every game I make, so you can thank them :)

Enjoyed the game and the minimalism of its mechanics, reminded me of Pacman. Footstep audio though was annoying, and it was a bit disappointing to collect pages, which can't be actually read afterwards.

Developer

Glad you enjoyed it! I added the pages at pages at the very last minute, but being able to read them would have been a good idea. You do get different text at the ending depending on whether you collect all of them.

Nice and simple! Looks and plays good. It's like a halloween themed pacman. Love the retro look!

Amazing game! I like the vintage look and coupled with the spooky dooky music and crusty sound effects! The skellies that rise from the ground was my favourite thing, because they could really mess with your plans if they went unnoticed! Had lots of fun

Developer

Haha "spooky dooky" is 100% the vibe I was going for. Thanks!

Wow I love the PacMan style gameplay! The graphics are nice and it feels "spooky" as well!

Developer

Thanks! :)
