I didn't make the music, bought it a while ago as a humble bundle pack. The quality is better from my downloadable game rather than web browser.

Thanks! Glad you liked it

You did really well creating an atmosphere and telling your story through the environment. In the short 3 minutes it took me to walk through this, I felt fear, wonder, and awe.

The visual design of the spaceship is well done, but the motion blur was a bit much for me. My favorite part of the game was the inside of the black hole. The spiraling colors not only looked aesthetically cool, but changed my mood from "oh crap I didn't escape" to "ohhh, where is this taking me?" My favorite game of all time is Outer Wilds, a game that filled me with wonder, and I felt some of that wonder again during the short experience of Event Horizon.

The sounds are well done and fit the setting. If I nitpicked one thing, it would be that the door opening sound got a little too high pitched and loud towards the end of its duration.

Great job!

Thanks for a detailed review! Glad you like it! It means a lot to me that people are able to feel the "game".

Wow, I'm blown away. The mood was so good.

Strictly judging as a game its not too much fun, but the world and the vibes I got were so immersive and great. If you have time I highly suggest expanding on this idea. Great job.

Developer

thank you!

Game is beautiful. Perhaps to much of motion blur. Mood is great. No much things to do for the moment. Nice experiment.

The visuals are great! the mood is also very nice. I just didn't understand what I'm supposed to do . Tutorial would have been really nice

Good job!

Developer

thanks! you needed to look for the lever in a room with a hologram, you are able to trigger them.

I love this. Like the way it looks and I think going into a black hole is a cool idea for a game.

This didn't really go with the topic quite well but I like the idea of going in a black hole!

Not sure how this got posted twice.

Great visuals! The atmosphere was convincing. I think you should continue developing it, you got a nice foundation.

Developer

thanks! Not sure about it but I might continue. I can already imagine how it would look like :)

Really beautiful visuals and sounds. I also liked the idea. But the game is really too short. Success in future projects :D

Developer

The 3d environment was enjoyable, the doors opening felt amazing! Sadly i couldn't figure out what to do and why this fits the topic :S. Still great work on the art. Check out my game as well ;)

Developer

thanks! you could press the lever in station control deck, I didn't make a tutorial intentionally :)

The visuals are great as is the atmosphere. A bit spooky :).

A pity there was nothing to do. That would made it even better but I know the time was limited.

For me the mouse was a bit to sensitive and I was disoriented sometimes were I was because the rooms and corridors look very the same.

But I enjoyed wandering around. Definitely expand on this concept if you can.

Glad you liked it! there were a few things to do, not a lot though.

Nice level build and atmospheric! I had some trouble using the browser version as I couldn't turn all the way around , at first I think it was an intention of the design but then I left clicked on the mouse and it seemed to sort it. Nice idea I think it would suit a survival horror game like Alien Isolation.
