A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

This is my first experiment into game making, I'm not much of an artist so all of the assets are things I was able to find for free. That being said, I think I have at least the rough framework of an actual game. I have an idea for how I want to expand upon this, but wanted to kick it out and see if I got any feedback.

If you take the time to play (the demo is VERY short), thank you!

Note: I was doing some testing and noticed that the Fast and Fastest quality settings seem to wreck the lighting engine. Please use Simple or above, those seem to work reasonably well. In the process of figuring out how to handle that and hopefully improve the overall performance.

Version 0.3

-Added an opening cutscene-ish exposition

-modified flashlight behavior a bit to light a larger area

I played your game. :3 I highly enjoyed it, I hope you release a full version!

Awesome, so glad you had fun! Sorry you had some trouble navigating, I've been thinking I need to reorganize the layout a bit.

Once I adjusted my brightness I had no trouble at all! Had I been smart and done that in the beginning I wouldn't have had any trouble with navigation. The layout is actually pretty nicd

Amazing game dude.Really nicely done ,i really enjoy it :)
Cant wait for full game

Awesome, glad to hear you like it so far! I'm still in the process of fleshing it out but I'm enjoying the development.
