"Hungry eyes watch from the shadows. The flickering light of a butterfly is all that keeps them at bay. Run for your live - and sanity!"

In this game you find pixel graphics mixed with dynamic light and shadow. And that's not the only thing we do a little different.

What starts as your average adventure soon turns into a nightmare. You're not a fighter. No gun or magic spell will save you from the creatures lurking in the shadows. It's your wit and reflexes that could save you. Use what the environment provides you to stay alive - and sane.

A great game, although obviously too short. Please consider making a long version. It's a nice mix between logic and skill sometimes. I think you could add more of both - more logic by for example making the player translate some runes, and more skill by adding some simple fights or runs or something. Also, there could be more of the tablets, to make some mystery unfold slowly.

Loved it!

LOve it! I'm on the second portal, stuck cuz it's really difficult. still love the game one of my faves! I love the colors and the magical feeling to it, the nightmare plot. His cute lil cloak, and the dialogue is very simple and to the point.

Oh man. this was [phenomenal] except for the end. Please do a proper sequel that has a proper ending, not just a 'oo look we done an ending' rolling screen! SADNESSSSS!

please do a sequel. pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee.


Good storytelling

A masterfull game in the art of telling a story with only short moments of storytelling vs. long moments of gameplay. Good lighting engine, too. Reminded me of cavestory.
