I think the reason I like this game so much is because it was clearly made by someone who loves and understands survival horror. This is a truly scary experience, and it doesn't need anything even vaguely similar to jumpscares. The introduction of the first monster freaked me right out, and that atmosphere remained until the very end. Item management was basically perfect. The ending was a bit lackluster but beyond that, I'd say this was pretty amazing, especially for a free game.

I'll be honest, I haven't actually finished the demo yet (I can't find the door I have to unlock with the key from Haskel's room or whatever his name is), but thus far this seems like a really solid foundation. I'm intrigued by the potential for the story and combat, although the enemies so far have been way too easy. I also wish that the main character moved a bit faster. Maybe add a sprint button that consumes stamina over time? I can't think of any complaints beyond that, and I'm very excited for the final product. Don't give up!
[POST-COMPLETION EDIT] Alright, having finally finished the demo, I can give some more definitive critiques. I still don't have much negative to say that I haven't said already; the player character walks frustratingly slowly, and combat is kinda boring. That's pretty much all the bad stuff I can think of. I'd say my favorite parts of the demo were the forest town of shadow people and the Loser Room. Those two areas have some high-tier atmosphere, but in totally separate ways, demonstrating the flexibility of the developer in this regard. I'm also excited to see the story unfold; the little that was revealed in the demo got me really engaged. Like I said before, keep up the good work and don't give up.
Hi, I just wanted to say that I'm really excited for this to be finished. I think that the artistic direction it seems like you're going has a lot of potential, and I'm already seeing a lot of interesting potential for the plot, as well. If this ever gets finished it could easily be one of my favorite Yume Nikki fangames. Keep up the good work!
