Erie drops you into a visually stunning, yet terrifying scenario where your goals are to investigate, survive, and finally escape. It’s first person horror meets intense dark-ride with hidden, rotting cats. Erie begins in October 1966, when the Fermi 1 Nuclear Power Generator suffers a partial meltdown, and locals begin disappearing from a sleepy Michigan town. Oliver Victor is a Red Cross Investigator sent to find missing locals, but quickly finds himself trapped underground and being hunted by a product of forced-mutation experiments. Oliver’s rescue mission quickly turns into a struggle to survive, escape and uncover what’s been happening under the nuclear plant on the shores of Lake Erie. Developed by the University of Utah's EAE Master Games Studio Program.

Greetings
First I would like to thank you for making such a nice game. I am only capable of immersing myself into games that connect with me, and yours did.

I'd like to point out a few things though. Judging from the number of pages, I bet someone had already mentioned it but I'd like to give my 2 cents as well

A save button- That could save my life

A menu that can tell me what every buttons do. I wanted to open a cabinet but didn't know how so I ended up pressing random buttons that gave me a "rendering frozen" error. That messed me up pretty bad

If a door or a cabinet cannot be opened can it appear to be jammed ?

Also can the creature not run as fast as I do? When I run it gets so blurry that I don't know the path I took and when I turn back the freak is already at my face clawing at me.

I am so sad that I had to stop playing half way through and couldn't save.

If some of these issues have already been addressed, I'd appreciate a copy-paste meanwhile I'll scroll through the comments.

Thank you again for this awesome game,

Thank you for your comments. We are in the process of launching a kickstarter campaign that will hopefully be up and rolling next week. We appreciate all feedback that we receive from everyone and we are currently compiling a list of a PROS/CONS.

The team realizes that there are a ton of things that need to be addressed as well as a ton of positive responses that we want to bring back in the next game. What you played was a simple prototype that the team put together in a short amount of time. We are planning on resolving all of the issues people have been having with the prototype as well as expanding our game into a full length experience.

The most important thing that any dev team could have is feedback. Not just from testers but from everyone who is interested in playing the game. We are making not game not only for ourselves but for everyone else. If we want to make a terrifying and fantastic game that everyone enjoys, all feedback good/bad is always welcomed.

Thanks for your feedback. Keep on the lookout for our kickstarter campaign coming soon. We are planning to have some awesome rewards.

Very nice, i gave it a quick look and i'm gonna play it to the end some other time. I've had trouble with the notes, though. I never manage to read them in time when i find them, and when i open them in the menu the text is usually to tiny for me to read them.
Also, the second note i found wasn't in the menu at all, so i have no idea of what it says.

We realize that the notes are impossible to read. We apologize. There are a ton of issues that we are going to fix in the full game if we can wrack up the funding.

Thank you for your feedback. If you notice anything else or should you want to murder the game for any reason, you should let us know why before proceeding to do so.

We are about to launch a kickstarter in the near future to (hopefully) raise some money in order to pay for the licensing of the next game. (Turns out you need money in order to make video games.)

Keep you eyes open for the most awesome kickstarter ever.
