A good looking game, but the level design absolutely killed me. Way too many false paths with dead ends, after the 4th or 5th long pathway I followed, only to hit a dead end, I couldn't push my self to keep looking. The footstep sound also made it hard to keep playing, it was definitely too distinct and sharp for something to be repeated constantly.

I hate to be so negative, there definitely might have been a great game in there. I just didn't have the patience to find it.

Crashes on startup. Also, could it be possible to get it in .zip -format rather than 7z?

I didn't have the patience to see it through to the ending. Also the footstep sound was too hard on my ears. Graphics were good enough though and I liked the descriptions even if it was a bit limited (from what I saw in the part I played).

Anyway, good job on completing your first LD , and I hope to see you more in the next ones ! :)

I can see the text bar and the text but the rest of the screen is black for me

I reached the end, but I had to disable the speakers because the step sound was too annoying...

The graphics and the idea good. It would be better if the level was generated, in my opinion.

Good music, the footstep sounds were grating, too dark at times. Too much of a maze (backtracking should be avoided). Could see this as an RPG or adventure game.

From the screenshot I assume it's bug that I see only the text description and nothing else and that I'm not supposed to walk blindly, so I'm not going to rate for now.

It also crashes on quit.

Oy, that was a tedious experience. At least I played it through! The step sound really is horrible, but I liked the atmospheric music. Graphics are good enough, too.

My Pro-Tipp: If you're going for a long and sometimes boring game experience with many dead-ends, just add a little bit story, e.g. some text fragments here and there and in every blind alley. It makes the game instantly artsy, because people get something for their efforts. Also it wouldn't be hard to implement. :-)
