I love the Rusty Lake series! I felt like there was some inspiration in the vibe of the art, but since nobody I'm friends with knows anything about the series, I just figured it was a coincidence... I'm so excited to know that I wasn't just imagining that lol
Also, the Junji Ito-esque detailed art looks incredible, but I can totally see how it would've been really difficult to replicate that however many times over (I'm not an animator so I have no idea rip) so I'm glad you found something that just as easily fit the vibe of the game perfectly
This is the first game I've really felt this excited and wowed by since I first played Cube Escape, and I'm really glad I was able to find something that recaptured that awe for me! I really hope you guys make more!
