    Nicely done, the art is great. You set up a very good story and keep it interesting throughout the game.

    Awesome game! Loved every second of it. The only thing you should fix is the link in the description http//studiominiboss.com should be http://studiominiboss.com

    OH MAN THIS IS AMAZING. This is a lot like game I've been working on with the cold / freezing mechanic. The art and audio ROCKS, and the game is HUGE for 48 hours. Great job! One of my favorites!

    You did a really great job on this one. You really had a good handle on how to balance the difficulty and to progressively make the game more challenging as it went while still being playable. Tight controls and really nice art style too. Congratulations on a job well done!

    I'm amazed you managed to do all this in 48 hours.

    The freezing and hunger mechanics are interesting. They encourage you to keep moving and to hunt for provisions, plus they add to the atmosphere of the game, but they never become too difficult to manage.

    Overall it is a great game, one of the best I've played so far.

    Very good. I'm not sure why you say it might be too pretentious though, it's not at all pretentious.

    I got stuck as I was jumping up the stairs at the "crumbling floor"
    Totally awesome game

    Oh, that was awesome :D

    Minor bug, in that as the text seems to center itself above your head, if you read some dialogue when you are to the left of the screen, it can appear with some text missing off the side, or it did for me anyway, with some text about mines being placed. That aside, great atmosphere and gameplay!
