Awesome video! Thank you for sharing it, and congratulations on finishing the game (I heard the Monster coming towards you just when you opened the door at the end, that was rad!)
Thanks for makings a great game. For me the sound was the star of the game especially when your eyes are closed and you can hear the monster, like at the end of the video, as you pointed out. I knew it was right there and thought for sure I would see it out of the window.
I will say that there were a lot of play throughs where I died randomly sitting with my eyes closed similar to the two times I closed my eyes in the video. I wouldn’t say get rid of the randomness but maybe make a small adjustment because eventually I found it was really better to just keep moving although the best part is closing your eyes.
Keep up the great work and I look forward to playing more games from you
XOXO - C.P.
I'll explain a bit the "random" part (which, I know, is frustrating) :
When you open your eyes, you are visible both by the Monster and by some "watching trees". These trees can give away your position to the Monster (the big scream you hear). The Monster then runs to this position.
If you keep your eyes open, you are visible, and the Monster can see you (if it does, it will run towards you and kill you).
If you close your eyes, you become invisible, but your "last known position" remains. The Monster will still go to that position.
The "random" part happens when you are seen by the trees, then close your eyes. The Monster goes to the position where you have been seen, then moves around this position. If you close your eyes and stay still, there is a chance that the Monster bumps into you (it means Game Over).
My advice would be to always keep moving after closing your eyes.
We are not planning to update the game for now (unless it gets a crazy amount of attention somehow), but what we could do on our side is to disable the collisions with the Monster when your eyes are fully closed.
Maybe it would be too easy though.
Anyway, thank you very much for your feedback :-)
Thanks for the explanation, that makes sense. I wondered about those evil red eyes! Never thought about still moving with eyes closed hmmm.
