That was just great! Would have loved to have kept playing!

This was rather brilliant - the theme fits perfectly, the presentation is great, the controls are fun and I've ran out of things to praise! The only criticism I can really think of is that some of the camera angles are maybe a little too restricting but that's also part of the challenge so you get a pass there, too!

Certainly great to see a game with a specific theme and three endings in a 48 hour game jam but I wonder if the time dedicated to that couldn't have been used in providing a slightly better experience of playing the game. The random placement of the 'enemies' makes it difficult to judge which way to go and you could have had a better signalled enemy entrance and then ramp up the difficulty (aside from having a swarm of them follow you for the 'good' ending). Happily, it's short enough that I stuck out all three endings so well done there and while I think you could have handled the theme a little better (maybe with a little more nuance and more thought put into the whole 'medication will cure this' side of things), it's a solid entry.

Sorry, I was not particularly into this. I found it far too troublesome to guess how far everything would take you - perhaps segmenting the screen into the same amount of slots that the command line had would have made it easier without having to put some weird UI element on screen to show distances. I was also confused about the multiple command lines but, honestly, I didn't experiment too much with it. Looks great, though, and the usability was bang on.

Nice game - short but good ideas. I'd have liked to see some puzzles where, maybe, your arrow gets trapped then the puzzle sort of becomes retrieving it for the next part (but it's a short jam so I get that going crazy like that isn't an option ). Slightly janky, but playable and fun!

Brilliant - a masterwork of single button games! Some people seem to have struggled to get one game but you've made four! And they all fit together! And they tell a story! And it's brilliant!

Seriously, though, great design, great dialogue, funny characters and fun games - the frame narrative is excellent, too. Well done :)

Cool aesthetic, great music, nice idea. It's difficult to start off on those narrow roads, so maybe having a wider path to start off with would be better, then have some branching paths, then narrow them down a bit. I know it's a short jam so it's asking a lot but you've started well already and it can only get better!

More roads, changing backgrounds, cars coming the other way, etc. - I'm aboard :)

This is very cool - great looking, great take on the theme, fun to play, enjoyable to control, does everything right. Though I could have done with a little bit more life (I didn't play it overlong but I didn't notice a way of getting it back - like an energy pack or something, which would have been nice) :P

It does have an overbearing kind of tension; that constant tick down of your life-support and system energy as you explore this maze - a great distillation of an overused horror trope.

Very well done :)

Great fun - totally addictive, sticks nicely to the theme ('one button' I guess - as opposed to one action :P). On the downside, it's a bit repetitive but I wouldn't expect anything less from an infinite runner and enjoyed it more than others I've played :)

Design and concept are great though, as others have said, the controls aren't in the easiest place to use. Cursor keys and Q/E would have been fine, too.  It might be cool to have more openness in the level, too, where you can place the pickaxe anywhere (though I understand that that would make level design WAY harder!)

It's an interesting concept and a cool style but very difficult to understand what you're looking/smelling for. The limitation on moving could be replaced with a 'stamina' system so that you can move all the time but are limited in your use of the other two senses - this might make it a bit more playable. As I said, though, excellent concept and nice artwork.

Great concept - clean, simple, love the changes from height & colour to sound. I don't think I could play it forever - but the time I spent with it was relaxing and fun :)
