Excellent story and atmosphere! Really got me creeped out. Congrats on a great job devs 👍
This was FUN! The mood, lighting, and particle effects were terrific.Game just felt good to play. Yes, the camera can be tricky at times, but that is part of the challenge imo. The dev could have punished us with it, but instead he took the time to playtest to make sure it was balanced. At one point, I came around a corner and the camera switched and there was a zombie right in front of me, almost to the point of being a jumpscare! I think that's part of the magic of this style of game. Anyhoo, here is my playthrough(loved it!):
OHHHH!!! The berries! I read that in the note, that he had them for breakfast, but then didn't see them in game. :( sad for me. That would have been key! Now I know :D
Will you be expanding on this? I really hope so, it feels really good! Love the art style.
I wanted to let you know I'm doing a fun little Happy Halloween update to the game for this weekend!
Now through mid-week next week, there will be CANDY CORN pieces hidden in places throughout the maze. See if you can find them all!
Thanks again for sacrificing yourselves to my cornfield :)
This was fun! I didn't make it all the way through sadly, I'm not that good. But I had a great time :)
The lighting is very well placed, and I love the flashlight mechanic. SO many times he almost took me out, but I shut off my light at the last second! Very tense. Loved it.
Here's my playthrough, it leaves the end for you guys to find yourselves.... hehe
The Field is an indie horror maze game, created by one person.
Find your way through a twisting labyrinth of corn.
A perfect game to add to your Halloween playlist! For about the price of a cup of coffee ☕!

Hey guys! I wanted to let you all know that I have a private thank you video that I will link you to with the game. It's just a small way to say how much I appreciate your supporting me, as well as countless other hard working indie devs out there!
Devs run on coffee, and without you, we wouldn't have any! :(
So thank you!
I'm so glad you liked the video!
You are so right! In horror atmosphere is everything. You did a great job with the rain, from the particle effect, to the drops running down the camera, to the sound, it all tied in perfectly. It really 'felt' like it was raining. And also made it harder for me to recognize movement, helping to obscure any spooks :). For me, the lady near the end was the creepiest part. She reminded me of a dancer in a music box, turning slowly as the music plays. She was a pretty creepy model, and I liked the mechanic of having to hold my breath while she was looking at me.
Great job! All your hard work is deeply appreciated! And please, keep on creating demonic nightmares for us!
