Author Comments

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's a wonderful game

Like all of your newer pixel games this one is a masterpiece. Just one thing I am expirenceing some slight sticking controls. Even on Firefox. Perhaps you cna look into that?

Great game! I even loved the bonus notes.

It's taken me an hour to nearly beat this, the game is huge! I like the story behind it too. Got all the items and got all the exits but two. Bah.

--- FINALLY got all the exits. You're a sneaky one. I never expected them to be where they were, places where I've been a million times. Heh.

Not going to give any spoilers, but a huge hint to other players: Follow your starting path as north as you can until you reach the giant "t" post, then go northeast. Follow the path as you choose or do what the signpost says.

Took me back

Nice game, very artistic like others you've made, I found it enjoyable and it reminded me of a number of older games I used to play way back when on my MacII. Only wish there was some sort of map function, certainly not to show you where everything was at once, more like marking landmarks to give you a general idea of where to head when you find a clue, found myself wandering around aimlessly far too often.

Very catchy and interesting

Ok, so I've spent like 2 hours on this game... Very interesting, the background story is consistent and catchy. The lack of map makes the game more complicated and interesting. Was able to find all items, and many portals, but I think I'm missing 2 or so (2nd and 7th circles are black). Won most of the medals before I knew this game had medals.
TIP: In order to find all the hidden signposts, there's a visible signpost around the middle of the game, at the end of a way. It was the last one I saw, though.
TIP 2: "Epiphany happens HERE" means "here in Looming", not "RIGHT HERE where you are placed right now". Follow the indications about two gears (find the gears first).

GregoryWeir: do you know a program called mtPaint? Maybe you want to give it a sight; it's nice for pixel art and shading.
