Awesome graphics and great atmosphere. The game itself felt a little slow, which may be deliberate to set the mood.

Graphics is really good, and that atmosphere, How did you create these awesome sounds and ambient effects ?

Also game tempo is really slow, and it's not too fun.

The game tempo is slow right now as there is not much to do. For example I wanted to create heater boiler and you need to raise temperature in house or you get cold. And so on : ) many little actions you must do in the right time and place. About sounds : ) Well, after 72 hours of developing it's the only sounds come out of my mouth : )

Awesome art inspired by TLoU. Good atmosphere. But game-play is very raw, I hope you will finish it in the future. It can be another great game from you like Dungelot.

As a big fan of TLOU I had to give this a try. Gameplay is not there yet, but I am really looking forward what you will do next (either as a next project or continuation of this one). Art is a masterpiece and deserves an award!

Great graphics and atmosphere. But story progress is too slow. May be Anny want to eat or something else?

Great graphics, very polished. I liked the lights and shadows. Bit slow, sometimes. The girl did not react when I "accidentely" shot her :)

Ye, One of the idea is to make her killable : )

Beautiful game, not much game play to it though.
The Zombies just stood outside in a row and never moved, I assume that's a bug?

I believe this happens when you restart game. If you fully restart .exe they will work properly ( till in-game restarting )

Not really one room, I guess it's one.. floor? ^^ Really top notch graph and atmosphere otherwise. Gameplay looks cool but I just found 1 zombie that killed me :')
And I didn't really know what to do either. I took a bandage and gave it to Anna but was at lost next.
Really looking forward to seeing more as the mood is already there!

oh! Nice! very nice graphic! You should improve the design... Can I find it on indiexpo? I'm making videos about the games of this Jam, but only about the games hosted also on indiexpo! Tell me if you will add it, so I can include it in my next video ;)

Ye, The main flaw for me. I wasn't prepare enough for this kind of rapid game developement. All my time was eaten by making mood. If I had 72 hours again I would done it much better in terms of gamedesign : )

This has a great atmosphere and other nice horror elements that just seethes a survival horror game. I understand the idea was to draw a parallel to The Last of Us, but it was still a really solid environment and start of gameplay mechanics.

I think if you pulled away from The Last of Us reference this could be the basis for a really strong horror game. Maybe with more stealth emphasized, since that light mechanic was really strong.

Nice job on the game. Just wish there was more stuff to do in it.

The Two of Us was featured in the recent episode of my Ludum Dare 37 showcase. You can see it here: https://youtu.be/tuKcNbjuvAE

Needs more completeness. I think your graphics are amazing but you sacrificed much of the actual game. Keep working on it :)
