I wasn't able to play past the intro dialogue as it ended up not responding each time I tried, though I do have a few comments on what I did see of the game; both mostly small things. To start with, dialogue shouldn't auto-advance. You should almost always let the player advance it by hitting a key unless you have a good reason for auto-advance. Trying to get it to work was frustrating because I had to sit through the intro with no way to skip through the dialogue each time.

I also looked at the controls in the options, and the default controls seemed ridiculous. A lot of different keys as well as the mouse. If you have things such as "interact" and "pick up" and "read" they can all probably fall under the same action. If you're involving the mouse and there's movement, you need to keep in mind that one hand is going to be entirely on WASD plus a few keys nearby (shift, control, space, Q, E, F, and R). I could remap the controls, but it didn't fix the problem of having several actions that seemed like they could all fall under the same button/key. I didn't play the game, though, so I have no idea if all of those actions were actually used in the game. Looked and sounded interesting, so I'm disappointed I didn't get to play it.

Thanks again for your comments, I appreciate it.

This game was really impressive for a game jam! The atmosphere felt really spooky, and the plot was great! The mechanics worked well, but 1 thing is I was having some optimization problems and I have a relatively powerful PC. When I clicked "New Game" it stopped responding for a few minutes and lagged a little bit in-game. Everything else was great though!

Developer

Thank you for your feedback!

And yes, there are a few problems with the optimization, I didn't have much time to work on it, so I recommend choosing a medium graphic quality for better performance.

Impressive atmosphere and tense build up for such a short game! Excellent use of audio. I was legitimately scared to go into that room!  Very well done!

Amazing visuals and sound design! Very eerie, dreamlike feel. The level, props and lighting kinda reminded me of 'Amnesia', in a good way.

Although a bit too short and heavy on the dialogue part, you managed to convey a good amount of detail. As someone else mentioned, this environment would do great as a full game. Good job!

A very short game with a great environment. Top quality in graphics and music. I hope to see a full game soon from this indie studio.

What a pleasant surprise! Another great example of these 2 individuals talents. A very creepy and atmospheric experience. There's just enough substance to wet the appetite leaving you in suspense of "What's behind the red door?!" When you find out... well you'll have to find out for yourself ;)
