Well, haha! Quiet good idea. I see there a reinterpretation of Limbo and Slender. But you really should get rid of those cheap "shocking" tricks with the flickering screen. Also the scenery lacks a bit of atmosphere: The sounds are okay but the graphics are too flat. Add some more colours - look at the old 8 bit games. Also you need to tell some story. The player has no relation to this white thing while wandering around houses and caves.

Good idea, but you've got a lot more work to do!

Thanks for your feedback. The jump scares were inspired by things like Marble Hornets. Slender was not a direct influence on this game, as neither of us have played it. The art and lack of explicit storyline are intentional.
