Clearly an underappreciated gem in the horror genre. Even with its lack of story (though even a vague explanation of events wouldn't hurt), the atmosphere is top notch and all around enough to give anyone the willies. Scared the crap out of me when I first played it, and the ending got me the first time too.

I remember playing this game at a diff website and having a great time with it. Fun game!

Thats why they are too many
Nice graphics 420/360


First of all, great game! I made a playthrough of it, in case you were interested: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-u7XzW8JtsQ>

I guess some people didn't like this game because it wasn't really a stealth game. I get that, but this was more of an anti-stealth game, and I think it was awesome! Granted, the whole, run away from monsters into spikes mechanic doesn't exactly make sense, logically. However, it does make for a very interesting game, and I really enjoyed it!

The puzzles were mostly really good. Figuring out what to do with the weird ice-blocks was quite challenging, though. There was literally nothing pointing you toward what to do. I did figure it out, but it was literally completely on accident. I guess I would have liked at least a hint, since there was no reason to believe I would be able to break through like that.

The graphics and sounds went together nicely. It kind of reminded me of an old flash game I played a while ago, called Don't Look Back for whatever reason :P It really helped establish the atmosphere and it worked! I mean, I wouldn't really call this horror, but it definitely had some good horror elements to it.

I was a little disappointed in the ending. I was hoping for a little more than that. I mean, I loved the game, but, as I said in my video, that "twist" is done quite often. Only, this time, it kind of came out of nowhere. I don't know. Maybe I completely missed the point. I just thought it was a little random.

Again, as a whole, great game. I absolutely loved it. Thank you for all your work! I look forward to anything else you might create :)
