This is a sequel to one of my previous games called "The Shovel" ► http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/673706

This is a little "walking simulator" type game. Just walk from screen to screen. Click objects to view them, and try to piece together what's going on.

A / D - Move left and Right
W - follow pathways to new areas
Mouse - interact with objects

Thanks for playing !

Love the game. Love the universe.

So THAT'S why Commander Dai called him Mason!
Takao Dai IS Commander Dai!
And Clear Moon... Started out as a church.
Awesome plot. 5 stars.

This awesome, though I feel that receiving the medal before the ending could confuse someone and cause people to leave the game before the transformation actually happens. Also does this mean that the Shovel and this game, the Ritual, are prequels to Dead Detention 2 and Chronicle Bulletin?

JackAstral responds:

yup :)

Really like the game, lots of cool lore stuff. Better than the shovel, and connects Father Mason to Polaroids.

Have you ever thought about making a forum for people to discuss Universe .08?

JackAstral responds:

Definitely...I was thinking of maybe making a subreddit

I'll be honest: it's actually pretty good!
The atmosphere is dirty and obnoxious, i think this is a must for someone who came here to newgrounds for the first time!

The only thing that don't let it achive 5 star is that is too linear.
But sure as hell it's good. Has a lot of potential.

Keep it up man! ;)
