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.

Dronlocker, do you actually have cancer?

DroneLocker responds:

I had. Around 6+ years ago. Testacle cancer. So a protip to all guys out there - keep touching your balls lol. Thats what saved me. Quick detection. Cancer can be beaten - as long as its being diagnosed very soon. Of course - you won't avoid the the surgery and the chemo-therapy hehe. Which in many cases is worse then the cancer itself.

To Dronlocker:

Overall, I enjoyed this game, both in terms of its thriller mood and game mechanisms. I liked how you had to use your sensory skills (ex: sight, hearing) and incorporate it into the environment. I think the mechanism for solving the door and Hebur. At the same time, I felt that many of the seemingly important choices later turned outto be complete red herrings, which was a bit disappointing because the overall game took around 30 minutes to finish (excluding the time i spent farming maggots for clues).

Nevertheless, it was a good solid game, and I eagerly await your next work.

BUT I MUST KNOW THIS: HOW DO KILL THE DUNGEON MONSTER (IN THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME?

I KNOW that's a medal, but you haven't posted a walkthrough, and no one seems to have gotten it done.

Please, for the love of god, just tell me. Everyone else wants to know as well.

Thank you Coke for this lovely review! :D
As for the dungeon monster... Well, lets be honest here - Antumbra 2 will not happen any time soon. So I can just tell some secrets here and now and no harm will be done.

Remember the right path with your "Son"? The monster IS the Son. Its a paradox that I hinted but never implemented. The monster tries to kill you. Because you left him. Because you did not saved him... And there's your son who is being turned into a monster in front of your very eyes. But the cycle could been broken. If you would manage to save your Son - the monster in the dungeons would stop appearing (because then your son would never get turned into the monster and so on).

IF you would do that - suddenly you would be able to explore the 3rd great path - the dungeons behind the monster. That would lead you to the very ending and actually that path had some functional combat (yup, you've read that right - combat) for all those people who prefer more action based solutions rather then riddles.

Of course - it was never implemented. I wanted to include all that in the sequel but the project fall on its face and then my PC pretty much blew up and more shit happen and one of my teeth fell off and... Well yeah. It failed. I failed. I've still haven't recovered after all this mess.

As for medals - no medal is linked to dungeon monster and killing it.

Ahh... If you could only know what sort of wonders I had in my sleeves... Antumbra 2 would redefine and revolutionize point'n'click adventures. But oh well. Life.

Thank you again mate :) for everything

Very fun, the sound design fits in and compliments the graphical style chosen. For a game made in such a short time span, it is great. Also, I totally spam clicked for the moses medal. Don't judge me...

I think I got what is wrong with that game. It is boring.
The difficulty is fine and, actually, refreshing after tons of obviously simple adventures, the visual style is ok, but there is nothing that encouages a player to go further. Well, at least not me. After some point a question rises: yes, I could finish this, but why am I wasting my time? No interesting plot, no fun content, just pixelhunting and guess-what-the-developer-wanted-you-to-do thing. The game consists only of challenges and doesn't give anything in return to your efforts.

You said that your best tester spent 6 hours on this. Do you honestly think your game is worth it?


DroneLocker responds:

"No interesting plot"... I don't know what to say to that.
As for the last: the fastest playthrought (without using the solution) recorded to this day is 23 minutes. The longest I know of is 7 days. Is it worth it - thats not for me to judge. But looking at the number of gameplays across all platform and websites... well 200 000 people says it was.
Not bad for a game made in less then two weeks, don'tcha ya think?
