Here's a plot twist...
https://youtu.be/dr0GXMq03TM
-------------------------------

Antumbra is a very odd game. It's creepy, scary, horror and incredibly hard. So hard, that you can and should expect to die dozens of times. My inspiration was thing such as Darkseed, Silent Hill, Hellraiser, Event Horizon, Shivers and Lovecraft.

Antumbra is also a very special "child" to me. Because I've made it mostly for myself. Because right now, I am having a very difficult time in my life. And I had to vent. So I took all my nightmares, my fears, my anger, sorrow and misery... And I turned it into a game. Antumbra is the most personal creation I ever made.

It's also my first game, that I made from scratch, and finished - all by myself. The game was supposed to be a lot bigger and with RPG elements but I had to cut that out due to lack of time. And It's also the first adventure game I ever tried developing. I would like to make Antumbra 2, with better graphics and longer gameplay but I have no idea would anybody actually play it. So here's this. If you would like more - please follow me wherever I am, specially at facebook, as its my primary communication channel. Please support me - and I'll make more. If you had enjoy the ride - let me now.
And if not? Well, then maybe go play CoD or Cookie Clicker or some other crap - I don't care :P

Kudos, have fun and see you at the Crossroad of Rust and Moss.

As someone who grew up on the bullshit adventure game, I can say this definitely fits the classification, though that's not a bad thing. My only real gripe is the lack of saving and loading, though the short length helps counter that, and it's not nearly as lethal or punishing for missing early things as Sierra games. While the story didn't really make much sense, the important thing is that it felt like it eventually would, and it kept me wondering what would be around the next corner, giving a sense of adventure in a strange land that's some sort of Alice-In-Wonderland-style place turned into Hell with an extra helping of surrealism and some theology stuff that's reminding me of something I can't quite put my finger on. If nothing else, I want a sequel so I can try to understand this. The semi-foggy art helps give off an unsure feeling, and the Middens-esque characters really help the atmosphere. While really I should be giving this a 4 or a 4.5 due to the lack of meat on it's bones, I feel like this deserves a five, for it's wonderful uniqueness alone.

Ohhh I love Alice. I believe, that each one of us has its own "Wonderland". Its just that, my "wonderland" has a very unique definition of "wonders" haha.
Thank you my friend! Thank you very much!

Man, I really like this start of yours, you're truly talented and got plenty imagination.
I recommend you to things:
1-stop answering all fanmails and reviews, it takes too much time, you could use on your future work;
2-try not to work alone,you will need help in this domain(art,software,legal issues,etc) from a more experienced person, I recommend you a great man from your country, mr.Mateusz Skutnik http://mateusz-skutnik.newgrounds.com/ ; www.mateuszskutnik.com
I wish you good luck,love from Romania.

Thank you Esial :)
And yeah I know... I spend half of my day doing just this. Replying. But as much as I don't complain (because I love doing it!) it sure eats a fair share of my working hours.
You see, as I keep saying - I am a gamer first, and dev 2nd. And it often happened in my past, that I wanted to contact the creator of a game or something else. Just to say how awesome his work was. So I wrote emails, messages, twitts and what not. But the content creators rarely reply. I know its because they are busy people. Yet a little bit of me always wanted to hear a reply. But that rarely happens. Here, countless numbers of people are contacting me day and night. They all want to be noticed, and they actually are. I know that if I'll spent those couple of minutes to write back to them - it will put a smile on their face. And this is something, really. I mean its the only way I know, for me to repay some of this happiness. To say "thank you". Because I am still hyper grateful. To all of you. But I do understand that with growing fanbase, and day being stuck at 24h - the situation will only get worse. The more popular I'll become - the more messages will arrive, and the less time I will have. Which saddens me greatly. Because this relationship between me and you guys - is my fuel. If I'll cut that off - I am off too. So I HAVE to keep in touch with my fanbase. But I might have an idea how to fix that. Stay tuned.
As for Mateusz - your review made me contact him ASAP. :) But he is a busy person so its only natural if he would not have the time to take care of me. Specially as I don't have a lot to offer to such a legendary game developer. And yes, I am one of his most die-hard fans!

ok, so you kinda want to think of the platform your game is on when making one.
for starters this is the internet. People are really impatient and don't really invest into anything at all.

so making the very first part of your came a "get the combination right or you restart" gimick turns people off of your game immediately.


DroneLocker responds:

Aaaaaand that was the point.

Very nice game but I am stuck on the "ENOUGH" part and it's not letting me continue.
Would be very nice of you would fix this.


DroneLocker responds:

Thats a bug. I asume you are using Internet Explorer right? Thats the IE kind of a thing. It handles the SFX very weird. I'll try and fix this. Try Chrome or Firefox meanwhile.
