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.

Well Done

This a game i can get behind. It's full of secrets and everything. What more could i want. But it's easy to get loss though. Other than that you get a 10 out of 10. Simply because I can't stop playing.

AMAZING

All the people who give this game 0s
do not have an attention span of more
than 10 seconds.

I have been waiting for a game like this
for a loong time! I love how you laid out
the clues, i just got all the pieces and im
on the last 3 portals. The game has a
creepy and dark feel to it that i really enjoy,
and i love the mono-color scheme you used.
The graphics remind me of old games i
used to play when i was a little kid. They are
amazing how you put them together.

I still am stumped about alot of the clues you
have laid out, but you put them in such
an amazing way.

Dont listen to the other people, if they
just took a few minutes to explore this
game they would be amazed. The only thing
i dont like about this game is that there is no
map, and making that this is a big open area,
a map would have been verry nice.

Awesome game, cant wait for more!

Good game, but inventory navigation is touchy.

This is a very nice exploration game, and I have enjoyed exploring Looming so far.
However, I do have one small issue: inventory navigation.
I had a hard time trying to find a possible explanation for why I couldn't highlight items other than the one in the top-left corner of my inventory and why the arrow keys didn't seem to work. Heck, it was hard to even find another person who had similar problems.
While I am not sure if it is a hardware issue, I would think that there might be an issue with the programming when the arrow keys work normally for walking around yet need to be hit with such force as to possibly damage the keyboard/laptop in order to make the inventory cursor move once or twice.
If you could please look into this, I would greatly appreciate it.

FINALLY!

I got the 7th Path Circle filled. PM me if you want to know how. By the way, this game is a matsterpiece of pixel animation. It definitely makes you use your head.

I love this game!!

This game reminds me of the Myst series, and just reading through the notes, Looming was made with Myst in mind. A good job, took me a few hours to find everything the first time through. A worthy game in my eyes.
