Lovely game! It's a slow burner but every bit of repetition is needed to familiarize the player with the townsfolk and the town itself.
The occult lore and Church-analog ritual is very intriguing and well realized. (Especially loved the Deacon's special relic and our friend on the climb) The unique way you represented the righteous insanity of a heretic-cleansing was very well done too.
All in all, an hour well spent. I hope you keep exploring this kind of narrative, its not often you see media that's sensitive to alternative beliefs.
