Hey just want to let you know of a bug, if you haven't seen it yet. Opening the journal in the cemetery seems to cause it, but I'm not certain.
controllers/journal.lua:74: attempt to index global 'ploxel' (a nil value)
controllers/journal.lua:74: in function 'draw'
main.lua:59: in function 'draw'
[C]: in function 'xpcall'"
I've had a ton of fun already with this game though, I'm a big cosmic horror fan and I'm really into your idea here!
