Hey there, I just recently played through your game and wanted to write up a short review here sharing my thoughts on it. I'll just go over some things I liked, some things I didn't and any bugs I might have run into.

I'll start with what I liked. The game looks pretty good, the textures are sharp and the lighting is fairly well done, the character model for the witch is creepy though a little odd looking in terms of quality. The sound design is very well put together, the laughing and cackling of the witch echoing throughout the caves was incredibly unnerving especially as you get further and further in and the sounds used at specific trigger points sent shivers down my spine at times. The atmosphere of the game is constructed well, at first it leads you in with this somewhat bright open area and then later showers you in pure darkness shortly after showing you the witch, the game is definitely spooky and the atmosphere and the way things are presented/structured plays a big role in that.

I'll now go over some things I didn't like. The controls felt clunky and unintuitive at times, this was mostly in regards to reading the journals, as shown in the beginning of my video I had somewhat of a hard time figuring out how to actually keep them open. Another thing that I didn't really like was how the progression of "rooms" was pretty well identical every time; get a scare of some sort, find a key, open door, repeat, it isn't really that bad and I can't fault it too much considering the game was made in 7 days, I just found it tedious. Lastly, I didn't like how I could only carry one item at a time, now just because I didn't like doesn't mean this is actually a bad idea, being forced to take a key back through darkness to open a door is interesting and would have been the perfect opportunity to really scare the player.

Happy to report that I didn't run into any game breaking bugs throughout my time with the game.

Overall it was a pretty good experience, visuals, sound and atmosphere are all on an above standard level. Controls at times were a bit spotty, and some of the level design choices were a bit tedious, but all in all it was a pretty good game, with some decent spooks.

Hope you don't mind but I made a let's play video of my time with the game for my channel.

Cheers and best wishes to you,
