Clicking on executable brings error with message
"There should be 'test_completo_Data'
folder next to the executable"

test_completo_Data exists in the same folder, though

Your game looks beautiful and i have been wondering why not a single person has rated it yet. But yeah it doesn't work when trying to start the exe there's a error message the same as everyone else. I downloaded through the windows link.

Pretty cool game. The puzzles were fun and the art is great. I'd consider removing time limitations since it might be too much pressure for some players :-)

This game looks absolutely fantastic! great job!

The time constraint is just a pain, I just wantes to solve the thing at my own pace.

Water puzzle seem to be broken, the toilet says it has no water in it no matter how much I pour in it.

Fantasy game! Beautiful artwork! Well thought out puzzle. Took me couple tries to finish the game. I think you guys did a really good job on it.

Very bautiful and colourful, but didn't actually understand what to do, and one time "fell out of a textures" (in second location I could run all over the space but the floor)

I could only play it for a little while since the character moved painfully slow, I couldn't get anywhere. I guess it's a bug? But the graphics looks amazing! It looks really charming, and I liked the music.

Very goood graphics and audio. The puzzles were way too hard for me, and I did escape the level a few times. Still a good entry, seems like a lot of effort was put in :)

Precious little game. I really love the artwork and the take on the theme, fantastic! You even added 4k support ;)

The only bad thing I found was the colliders. I actually had more trouble leaving the first room than to solving the stairs puzzle.

Overall a really good experience. Keep it up team!

Very Cute game with a totally unique style!

After leaving the first room I ended up going through a gap in the collision in the back wall near the certificate, and couldn't get back out.

Great looking game. I don't understand why there is a time constraint, it just seems frustrating more then anything else.

I am not sure why but Oscar walks so slow. It took me ages just to reach the first door. I thought maybe after that everything will be fine but unfortunately it was still slow. So couldn't play properly. The graphics looks so nice, the audio went with the theme and the mood of the game was so nice. It's a shame I couldn't play the game to it's fullest due to the slowness issue.

Cool little puzzle adventure! I ran out of time on the toilet puzzle (it wouldn't fill with water - I'm not sure if that's what I was meant to do?) and had to restart the whole game :( The time pressure was fun on the first puzzle but less fun when the objective was unclear. Overall, a brilliant entry - hope you keep the team together and make more brilliant things!

Excellent aesthetics and puzzles!

-I liked the puzzles: particularly the water one, I got stuck on it quite a few times. Made me feel smart when I got it though.

-The stress/fear/worry meter in a puzzle game is something I havent seen to my knowledge

-Im sure you'll get this alot but the mood and art style are perfect.

-The geometry could be a bit jerky-- I got stuck in between the stairs and the void in the second room

-At times I didnt understand why what I was doing was causing certain things to do (ex: the stairs)-- based on the very artsy vibe from the game and the whole lost child thing I didnt know if this was intentionally there to cause some kind of cognitive dissonance.

-Try restarting the player from most recently completed puzzle-- in a puzzle game with very certain solutions once you figure out how t o do something it just becomes tedious to do it over.

Great job though, I really liked the world of this game.

Why a guy have to knock everywhere?
The graphics are good, very well done.
Personally, I do not like games like this, but the people who love this kind will be satisfied.
Good work!

Awesome art.
I also love the way to interact with the world. (Same as movement key, but contextual)

It's a bit of a shame that this craft was not applied to the level design.

I mean, during the first puzzle, I constantly have to go back and forth between the object and the strairs to form my hypothésis.
The puzzle is hard enough on it's own !

Nevertheless, Awesome entry. Congrats guys !

Really lovely art and music! There are a few issues though. I accidentally clipped through the wall in the first level and was able to just walk around to the exit, and the second level seems to be broken unfortunately. Great looking game though.

This game is so beautifull, i love the atmosphere and the universe, music is great too
I liked the puzzle part as well, but had to redo those a bunch of time because of the timer and how the gamer over work, it's killing the fun a bit

First time i played, i couldn't get out of the room (door interaction didn't work), i also got kicked out of bound a few time, and had to restart

but overall it's a beautifull entry and i'm glad i was able to play your game, really inspiring!

I timed out in the bucket room and had to restart completely, which I will do later on, it was a bit disheartening. Interesting drawn + realistic visual style. Creative visuals of a scary version of a normal house. Good work.
