Hi everyone. This was probably one of the most personal projects I've done in a long time. I had a lot of things I needed to deal with, and a game seemed like a constructive way to do so. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it. Stay tuned for Chapter 2!

As always, a huge special thanks to Hania. She continues to be amazing to collaborate with, and her work is always inspiring. Thanks to Evil-Dog too, for graciously allowing me to use Outbreak.

Absolutely great beginning.

Oh my God. This is one of the greatest games I have ever played. I can't wait for chapter 2. I hope it's really good.

Very promising series [spoilery review]

The music was terrific, the graphics were fitting, the atmosphere went well. The story seems interesting, and it looks like the sequels are going to be coherent, so the series as a whole seems promising.

However, the puzzles seemed a bit random to solve (how should I guess that the flickering C means only those objects that begin with a c should be lit up?). The clues could be a little more direct, or some objects may be clickable everywhere, such as light switches (this would make White Darkness easier to guess).
The pointer was also slow to respond at times, and the game sometimes devolved into pixel-hunting.

Also, "Goat-Box"? Is that the best you could come up with for runes?? :D

Good but a few problems

I liked the setting of this game and the style looks cool too. I have a few problems, though. I think that the pointer controls are a bit slow and also the puzzles don't have much of a logical process to answer ie What Is The Correct Answer? The answer can be found but it can only be answered through trial and error. If there were puzzles where several different thought processes could be used so lots of people will get the same answer, but they all can use different methods. That would be a cool puzzle game.

Good Game

The only significant complaint I have is with the speed: The typewritten narrative along the bottom takes way too long, and even the character moves a bit too slowly. Rather than contributing to the atmosphere, they just make things kind of boring.

Maybe a little too simple

Music was great, added to the atmosphere, but the puzzles were too simple. Would have liked to see more storyline incorporated but not bad for a 10 minute game.
