Whoa. The graphics on this one sure are pretty. Loved the style. I really want more!

controls and game play fit theme really well. I love the story communication etc.. The combat at the end could have been a bit more interesting.

Wow! Great sound, and ambient effects. And a cut-scene! I was getting all excited to see what happened down in the hole, and then I maybe punched the wolf, and it ended. Kudos for getting me into the story!

Apr 29, 2013 @ 5:47am

I don't understand why the combat was inserted, the moment I was supposed to use it I just got sent to the fin screen. The wind sound effects and snow particle effects were cool.

Great storytelling, but I died on the first wolf. Maybe it could be more forgiving in the future?

very pretty and the audio is the best I've heard in this ludum so far.

Was there supposed to be a fight at the end? The wolf just stood still, then I walked toward it, and it went to the end screen.

Loved the aesthetic and the sprites. Shame there isn't more!

Thanks a lot for your comments. And sorry for that fighting scene in the end :)
I will make it better to the 15-th of march or near it.

Oh, that`s what i love about games: your mind is the main game controller. Some people say wolf killed them, some people say they killed a wolf.
That sounds really interesting because that game has no win\lose conditions - screen just fades after 8 or 10 attacks. And then you think you`ve killed the wolf or the wolf killed you.

That does have a very cool atmosphere, nice work!

Good job, got quiet into it, shame about the combat section at the end.

Was hard to rate it. It's amazingly done, very immersive but not so fun at the end because of: use of keyboard keys (not minimalist, and not european keyboard friendly), and brutal end (not wanted to start again, too long to reach the wolf...). Well done however.

Pretty cool and very atmospheric. Combat could have been better.

What did you use to build this?

Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:11am

Yep, that was the fin. Nice graphics, BGM.

Yozz says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:13am

namuol, construct 2.

Yozz says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:14am

rockford, did you kill the wolf?

oatsbarley says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:15am

Awesome graphics, and the overall atmosphere is great. I wish the controls were a bit tighter, and that there was a way to get to the title screen from the game over screen.

Is that Fred from Scooby Doo?

Yozz says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:22am

oatsbarley, no way to get to the title is my hard fault. Sorry. And thanks for your critics.

The game just kind of ended... I didn't attack the wolf and the wolf didn't attack me. The animations for this were superb.

Great setting - I felt like I was getting a chill from the sound of the wind and snow. Not sure if I managed to kill the wolf or not, but I don't think so...

I love the atmosphere too.
Good work.

It seems you put A LOT of efforts on this game, it looks very well. Please, if you decide to complete the gameplay in someway, let me know, I would love to play it. Btw, are you Spanish speaker? fin is Spanish :D

gokuhd says ...

I forgot to tell you that at the begining I did not know where I was. Maybe it would be clearer if you put the character a little bit nearer to the the scene.

Yozz says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 1:34pm

gokuhd, thanks for your comments, i really appreciate this. I will announce if this game will have any future (followed you in twitter).

I`m russian speaker :)

About the beginning: putting character in visible area was visually crap and i decided to draw a little pointing sign on the left. So players have to think and look at the background if they want to know where is that little guy. :)

Good graphics, sound and atmosphere... controls can be better. A good entry.

Lythom says ...

Hi ! here is some feedback about the entry.
What I loved : atmosphere, efforts on animation
What could be improved :
- fight system (either a complete fight system or a simple "one button" would have been better instead of a complex with no depth one)
- I don't really see the relation with the theme
- graphics (are very good !) but could be improved with more consitency (a strong and common graphic style)
Thanks for the game !
(Bt the way, if you like story-telling, you could like mine !)

Nice athmosphere and the particle effects were amazing and pretty cool. I really liked the spooky music and the sound effects. As for me, the combat did not fit well into the whole thing. I would have liked it better whent it just been a "semi-interactive-story". Liked the ambiguity at the end.

PTSnoop says ...

Great graphics (including character animation), great atmosphere. I'd have liked a longer storyline.

Nice visuals and atmospheric sound. I was getting into the story but I seemed to die quickly. felt like a mix of samorost meets Peter and the wolf.

Lythom, the game is minimalist because it takes the most complex game genre ever made (roguelikes) and puts it in a 3x3 room with one basic "potion" item, and some insanity to fit in with the tiny room idea. I should probably add that to the description.

Also, just played it through again, got to day 42! It's super fun once you know all the hidden details.

Whoops, totally just commented on someone else's game thinking I was at my own entry. Oh man, shouldn't have stayed up all night.

Apr 30, 2013 @ 1:39pm

Very nice atmosphere. Enjoyed the story.

Great job on the atmosphere. Everything blended together quite well. I wish it were a bit longer though.

Beautiful mood and sound. Bit confused by the combat at the end.
