Fantastic work! Atmospherically pleasing. The audio, especially. (see rating for extra feedback)

Had to run windows troubleshooter on it in windows 10 but otherwise no issues, it auto fixed so I could play.

I expected to be able to run at first, but felt comfortable at this length with just being able to walk. Look forward to seeing where this develops from here or where your development takes you next!

Best, Liam

ps. well done again for #30daydev, amazing achievement in under 30 days!

FYI, for linux gamers, this game runs excellent in Wine. Tested in Ubuntu.

Satanic worms make for a creepy little story!

Thanks! Was wondering how/if it worked in Linux.
