It was a fun, incredibly hard at some points and very easy to get lost in the maze of canals.

I was suprised I was able to beat it.

Hi, I'm currently making a series where I play through every game submitted to the Wretched Weekend Jam, and yours was the 69th and final game I played!

And... wow! What a way to end the long journey, than with contender for the best game in the whole jam!
This is so well put together and conceptualized for a jam game (I played it pre-update and it was pretty much the same level of polish), it has an interesting game play idea AND story!

The aesthetic, the setting, the story, the enemy, the level design, the audio... just everything about this is done to such a high level I don't know what else to say!

If you haven't played it, play it, get all three heads!

I really, really look forward to seeing your other projects! Great work!

Here's the video for those interested (time stamps in description):

Thank you very much for the kind words and the video! Keep it up!

I will be sharing the video, hehe.

Neat game! My only complaint is that it was a bit tedious. Here's my video on it if you're interested!

Enjoy!

Cool, my intention is finish it, if it has a finish. Well this here is my first attempting. Congratulations, I liked a lot this game. The atmosphere is spooky and the creature lurking and sneak after us is scare us. Good job.  I shall do others "attempting"(parts). I cut some texts to give who watch the video play itself. Thanks for this good game. I should keep playing and recording it. That gameplay is in portuguese(Br).

extremely large area was frustrating to cover but cool writing! 4th game in video, timecode 8:23

Thanks for the gameplay! The map isn't as big as it seems tho :P Trust me... It's just the boat being slow and the fog.


I've seen you  changed the target framerate of the application. You didn't like the 24fps cap ?

Is the game finished and no more apdates are needed?

Hello! Yes, by now that's all, the game was done for a gamejam in under 4 days and later on we added some minimal features and bugfixes, but that's it :)

I enjoyed the vibe of this game, but I felt like after the first 2 skulls the monster became unbeatable! (I'm probably just bad lol) I got lost a lot too haha!

Hello Minya! Thanks for the video :) I'm currently working on a little update to balance things out a bit and make the game more catchy/scary. cheers!

I made a tierlist for a lot of the haunted ps1 games and this game was in it! Please check out my video!

First of all, I absolutely love the covert art. Really drew my eye. A totally gorgeous and well-put-together game in general. I do wish the antagonist was a bit more present, as it seemed to leave me alone most of the time.

Thanks for your feedback Kevin, we will probably do some balancing changes to make sure the enemy is more present!

Really wanted to like this, but it's incredibly frustrating to die over and over again.

I'm sad to hear that :( the game can be quite challenging, have you tried bringing the heads one by one to the church ?

(+1)

Yeah, and honestly that seems harder. It seems to move much faster with each skull returned. Unless it starts moving faster upon skull pickup instead of return, I guess you would know much better haha. Anyway, it has a great atmosphere, and I'll probably return to it soon.

Yes indeed, the monster becomes faster every time you pickup a skull :) glad to hear you liked it mate! We're rolling a new update tomorrow with more atmospheric stuff

(+1)

ooooh that's fantastic news! Will definitely take a look!!

(+2)

Absolutely love the game, if someone is interested...I made a fan trailer for it :)

We appreciate it a lot man, thanks for your time and effort!
