Hey, thanks a ton for playing! Glad you saw my post. I have another one that's much scarier, if you're interested.
As far as story, you figured out the main points, so great job on that. I was worried this game would be too cryptic.
Great feedback, too. It's funny, I realized I had an hour left before the deadline when I was blocking off areas you're not supposed to explore, so I had to leave it where it was so I could get everything submitted. As a last ditch effort, I tried to block off the area you fell down, but I did it in a rush, and missed that tiny little corner. The problem of course is the fact that uploads are disabled until the end of the voting period, so I just have to live with it for the remainder of that period before I can fix it. And same thing with taking visual damage; I had intended to add that, but ran out of time. I really liked your idea about telling the story throughout, but I would have to rework the ending, and at this point I think I'll leave it, especially since most of the game's exposure will happen while I can't change anything.
Anyway, thanks again for playing! I hope to watch you play more of my games!
