This game is about two lovers named January and September.
No, wait; it's about a group of people who don't believe in the sky.
No, it's about a pantheon of scientific disciplines.
Or maybe it's about an ancient beast who knew exactly when it was going to die, and how.

It's about a place. A place called Looming.

It wasn't that good.

The game quickly became repetetive. I understand the whole "archaeologist in a new place" theme, but you could've at least made it more exciting (traps/hazards? Other worlds/places?)Overall, It wasn't the best game I've ever played.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

I didn't like it that much.

The biggest problem was when I saw the game, the flashing hurt my eyes very badly, if you make a game like this again, please put a Warning to Epileptic and weak/lazy-eyed people. The next one is that I didn't know what to do, I found a hut area, but when I walked by a message popped up and my cursor went invisible while in the flash, this means I could close that. I just thought that I should bring this up to your attention, it looks good, but those problems really affected the game and me.

I get the whole "Ooooo I'm a archeologist watch me find things to uncover a story" idea, but could it be a bit more exciting? I don't know...maybe I have a short attention span or someting :P To me this is the most tedious and boring game I have ever played in my enire life.....


Rated 5 / 5 stars


I can honestly call this game "breathtaking" and mean it. Very beautiful, very atmospheric. And I must disagree with the reviewer below - while the game does get tedious every now and then when you're looking for a little speck on the ground that just doesn't want to be found, I actually think this adds to the overall flavor of the game. You're an archaeologist in a dead town, naturally you aren't going to find clues everywhere. You're trudging through the dust, looking for a needle in a haystack. Top score!

Seems potentially good

Hello again! I'm such a fan of your quality art games, and I feel like this one is equally as beautiful and chilling, but I find it was harder to move forward in the game and make sense of it.

Most of the game is running around in the strange world (which is once again, simplistic yet beautiful in a way only you can convey), but it was difficult to find the artifacts and also to keep track of where I was. The game became repetitive quickly because of too much searching to no avail.

But I did like the story and how you just created a world with a culture and a history so in-depth and detailed, and it actually reminded me very much of H.P. Lovecraft. This game was enjoyable but quite tedious.
