Nice game and art. The sound is the right kind of creepy. The game is not very fun to play though since your goal is to wait. There is not a lot to do while waiting until you are running low on resources (hunger, thirst, energy).

Thank you for playing our game. The game is indeed pretty "boring" because there is so much waiting. We realized that a bit too late.We just didn't have enough time to do anything about it.

Nice work, especially on the sound and mood. 30 minutes is kinda long though, I didn't go that far.

Graphics and ambiance was cool. The sound is helping the depressing feeling of the game. There is nothing to do actually other than waiting (but I believe that is the point of the game).

Waiting isn't best mechanics, but mood and music are giving the game very meditative look.

Also it would be nice to have understanding what mean what number in the upper-left corner.

Graphics are great, the game is just not fun to play.

Nice looking and very heavy atmosphere, I like that. Gameplay was a bit... absent. I feel its something that could be the basis of a great game, with a few more mechanics/more content.

I also agree it takes too long. There should be more things to do besides eat and drink and wait for the year to end.
Besides that the graphics are good the ambient sound works very well with the game and since I love survival games this one was nice to play.

Well, this is a very chill game, to play when you are doing something else. I can see myself playing this game while at work for example. I also really like this type of art style, it reminds me of McPixel, and the Shelter game concept is also something that I like, and you guys did a great job on that, well done!

30min is long for a ludum dare entry, most people won't have the patience to play your game fully.
The graphics and the mood were good. There is just a little thing that bothers me : not every pixel have the same size : so the sometimes don't really line up and that's a bit weird once you notice it.
The audio is good.
Good game overall.

Nice aesthetic for a fun little game which could be improved. However it is cool enough. I had fun playing it. Well done ++

The idea for the game is great, but it is super slow. I would really have liked some kind of surprise ending.
