I wasn't able to get it working :/

Developer

Hey wormo! It seems to be working fine for me at the moment and for a few other people that have played through it, so do you have an error showing or anything? Should be able to just extract and run the .exe. 

ok, I got it working. quite interesting! very soothing with the nature sounds and the narrator's voice, and fun puzzles.

Developer

Thanks for playing! Yeah I tried to make it as chill as possible so people could enjoy the story and such. :)

I cant for the life of me beat the first puzzle, its destroying me haha. I really wish I could, I love the little bit of narrative you start with. Ill return again in future and see if I can progress.

Hey, I'm not sure why but it seems my reply disappeared? Anyway, I've uploaded a new version with a cheat code to skip rooms! Hit the end key on your keyboard to skip any room you get stuck on. Thanks for playing! :D

Just beat it! I didnt have to use the skip either, for whatever reason my brain was ready. 

The narrative is fantastic and I love its combination with these short puzzles. 

My criticism would be that the puzzles can be difficult to know what to do  or are a little random. Maybe a UIhint or something would be enough, particularly the first one. Also while I think the art works and has its own lofi charm I reckon this paired with some hand drawn stills could be really effective. 

I really like the minimal sound design, the ambient noise works great and the voice over is sweet. 

Overall this is one of my favourites, a wee concise narrative paired with little taster puzzles... dope. 

Very interesting world you made. my favorite was the teeth pulling game.

Developer

Thanks! I think that one was the most interesting to design, too, as I didn't base it off any game I knew. Plus I had to do some paper prototyping. Paper! Thanks again for playing, really appreciate it. :)
