A little late but I uploaded a review video to youtube and your game is a part of it! Check it out here:

Liked this game and the atmosphere, but I couldn't figure out what to do. I looked at everything and went into every room I could go into, but I still couldn't find what to do. It looked like there was a key on a bookshelf in the main room, but I couldn't get it. Also, the music was really intense at random times, and I kept thinking that something was happening even when it wasn't.

Very hard to work out what to do (I could only find the journal and the spider book in the first room, and then there was an empty room upstairs with every other room locked), but a really creepy atmosphere, well done on that!

Whew, that chase scene was so surprising! I notice that's been used in a couple of jam games I've played using RPG maker and it's so hard to see it coming.  I always die and have to start all over =(

But, that said, I did like the game, it had a nice progression, if you could figure out what to do.  It was so short and that made me sad, the game concept was intriguing so if you expand on this, I'd definitely give it another go!

Good work!

Very creepy atmosphere, but I'm confused about what I'm supposed to do. I walked around checking everything and reading all the journals I could find. But nothing seems to happen. I just run into the same locked doors and the one room I can enter seems to be empty.

The atmosphere is pretty awesome though and I was on edge the entire time exploring!

I do have to add though that the download was HUGE, maybe see if you can get that down from around half a gig! That should get more people trying out your game :) 

pretty dark and intense... i am sorry i couldnt grade the audio since i broke my headphones
