This game was fantastic. I went in expecting a sort of dark animal crossing-esque game and got something so much more. The atmosphere in this game is fantastic- the minimalist use of music and the simplistic designs for the sprites gave very strong vibe of 'nothing is scarier'. The urge to explore and plunge deeper is very strong, without anything explicit telling you you need to do this. You feel forced to put yourself in danger without any specific directive ordering you to do so, which creates a nice sense of anxiety. The deeper down you get, the more I could really feel the weight of all the floors above me, knowing how far away I was from the top floor- even if it would become accesible again fairly easily, there was still this amazing sensation of distance and isolation. Not fully understanding how all of these buildings had been thrown down the pit really mystified everything for me, feeling like I was exploring some abandoned civilization, only to find other people just chilling down there. Knowing I wasn't supposed to talk to the bird definitely made me very paranoid when I wound up speaking to him the first time. This game was also a lot longer than I was expecting it to be, and I have to say I'm really impressed by how much content you managed to created in such a short amount of time! This is easily in my top 5 horror games I've ever played, I think I'm just going to have to sit and digest everything I've just played through now.
