Ok, so I had some notes about the game I wanted to put in, but didn't get to write them before the deadline hit. They're on the webpage, though, so you should be able to get at them.

Interesting concept, one of the artsier games of this LD. The atmosphere is nice, though the heart sounds are a bit too erratic (what's up with the pulse not stopping at all after dying?). Also, there are timing issues with the combat, so it doesn't work very well as a game because of that.

Thanks for the feedback!

We're currently doing a few tweaks to fix a lot of the game-centric issues (as well as little things like the pulse not stopping - thanks, I actually forgot about that one). We made a bit of a mistake with this one in that we pretty much had to make 2 games (top-down and platformer), and while they're simple games, it meant that we didn't really get to polish the mechanics (in particular, the knife is better than the sword in the LD version, which is odd to say the least).

Nice message in this one, I think I'd just rather take a taxi.
