"Lumber Island - That Special Place" is a psychedelic first-person horror adventure.
- The plot doesn't lead you by the hand, only self-contained exploration reveals obscure history of this place and its secrets.
- Atmosphere is the most important aspect - you'll see no buttons on your screen; there is no inventory in the game, which provides maximum immersion aided by music, sounds and Oculus Rift (in future).

"Back in 1970s, this island was known as the "Lumber Island". It abounded in rare wood species of the highest quality, which were sought for by the craftsmen from all over the world — many of them took trips to the island in person, to pick the best material. The island thrived on private manufactures and tourism... ...until deposits of oil were found under it. This finding doomed the island: its inhabitants were made to leave their home land, the wood was chopped down to the ground. And after the oil had been pumped out to the last drop, the island was left abandoned and totally exhausted."

Your game is so good, take all my money! <--- total worthless comment. No constructive criticize.
Your game is crap <----- also a total worthless comment as above.

Your game is nice due to it appeals to my taste on the graphical side, I enjoy the way you used just the right amount of horror and not went over board. <----- good comment, it has constructive criticize.

I detest that you made a game without thinking how close it mimics another to the point of being a direct copy, like you just stole the work for yourself and gave it a different coat of paint. <---- good comment as it also is constructive.

People who negatively vote on constructive criticism really need to understand that not everyone sees things your way, and without constructive criticism nothing ever changes for the better for all. You can't make everyone happy true, but listening to another's ideas CAN be beneficial.

It is hilarious how bad the community is when people decide to negative vote a legitimately constructive criticism. You people fail hard at learning anything from another's perspective.

1) The game had a really well made up atmosphere at first. Ambience was really scary and well made. Surrounding area was really well made as well, topping off the horror feeling while playing the game. 2) While at first the atmosphere was perfect, it faded out later on. That lumberjack was on your feet non stop, and you could always know where he is. I'll tell you why Slender is scary (just an example, you can change the Slender name to almost any good horror game). It's scary, because you don't…
