This is a really neat concept!
And the story is compelling to boot.
I must have my revenge!
Hey, I made a strictly pacifist game too. I liked your concept, kind of like crawling between legs in a cinematic bar fight. My browser kept running out of memory, I think it was when I tried to move to the place another square was moving to before they took their turn?
Stunning imagery, really sells the genre. The occult-y vibe is also well established. Would love to play with sound as well, and get those creepy chills to go along with everything you already have.
I read the title. I took the tutorial. And then the game started and I was completely lost. Once I figured out how to play and I immediately hated myself. lol. You should do an entire brain training suite of games in this style. Snarky and hilarious!
The theme works really nicely with this classic genre. The amount of ingredients is a little daunting to start out with. If you plan on continuing development, I'd recommend maybe starting with fewer then ramping up the difficulty.
The graphics do a lot with so little, and successfully convey the desperation of the landscape. Game play would improve drastically with a brief tutorial, imo. Just didn't know what to look for when the sun starting showing up. Understandably, in a jam we don't really have time for all that.
