Hey Newgrounds! This is my first flash game and first submission here - it's been on Kongregate for the last week.

Don't Look Back is a game about fantasy. Just to warn you, it can be quite tricky in places... I hope you enjoy it!

This game was brilliant. It had a plot line that I couldn't have loved more. Is it perhaps a game following the devils one must face after losing a loved one until they can find peace or is this game a rendition of Orpheus's descent into Hades?

The one in which after this death of his wife, he plays the music to soften the hearts of Persephone and Hades and they allow him to bring his wife back to the upper world, on one condition. He was to walk in front of her, and never to lock back until they reached the upper world.

Either way the plot is still beyond words, and I really enjoyed it. Onto things like music and graphics i felt they fit well into the theme of things. They both set the mood, and it goes to show that one doesn't need extremely detailed graphics or a complex soundtrack to impress an audience.
The only thing that almost got me to dock a point off was my petty frustration in playing the game. I think I played some parts five times over. Overall, great work.

Haunting! Great atmosphere, if a bit short. I feel like you could do more with this concept and make it a bit deeper and even more disturbing, but not in a horror sense, more in an emotional and psychological/philosophical sense.

That being said, I feel like the ending is sort of left open to interpretation. Is this right or is there an actual definite answer?
