This was a really cool idea! I fell into a hole and died forever! I had fun smashing balls together and trying to keep them from falling off all the edges. I was totally imagining chickens being in here, haha.
I escaped the room without a walkthrough, so I feel pretty proud of myself. You did geniunely scare me at one point, so kudos to you! :D Took me about 29 minutes to escape and that's a pretty good length for a game like this. The only place I got stuck was some of the valve controls. I couldn't figure out if I was supposed to click and drag or just click, but I eventually fiddled with them and solved them. The overall theme is really intense and you've built the story world out really nice! Definitely going to play Chapter 2!

It's been awhile since I last played so I don't remember where she is anymore, but my advice is to retrace your steps. Some places change after you visit them or another event happens. If all else fails, just check each area. She's there.
I really enjoyed playing your game! I got stuck trying to find Ruth, but I retraced my steps and eventually found the room where she was. The setting is really cool and I wanted to know more about the ship and why people were trying to sabotage it.
I agree! I feel like you can more easily cobble a new game idea together in GameMaker, since Unity requires a lot of front end work. However, if you love Unity, feel free to use the program you know best!
