This was great, super polished! I was surprised how hard it was, my heart got very dark very fast. I'm actually not sure if it was a bug or not, but I got a good end even though my heart looked entirely dark by the end?

I did do a stream of this, you can see the video on youtube here:


Love the art and the entire concept! The controls, effects of your actions, and even the UI are all fantastic.

I agree with BluShine that there were times when I had to wander a bit more than I would like. The sections of the forest were generated well, though, so they felt unique each time. This is a great project! Add in a few more things to toy around with as you go, and I would have no complaints at all!


I survived through the winter! Although my heart was black as hell. The effects were funny, although it seemed like some of them didn't do anything. I kinda wish that there was a person in every room, just to increase the pace. The art and music gave it a really nice atmosphere, but without any other interesting things to find in the forest or hazards to worry about, all the walking seemed a little unnecessary.


I survived, but made all sorts of noises along the way. I really enjoyed the choices and outcomes, and the artwork is fantastic!
