"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).

Graphics are about on par with that Slender redub... nothing special. Extremely blurry on any settings. The update appears to have done absolutely nothing gameplay wise. There is no supsense to this game. You know exactly what causes the monster to come, and even from what direction, every... single... time. At least Slenderman keeps you guessing and leaves you the hell alone at some point.

Die and have to restart chapter. Ran around whole first area 3 times couldn't find anything to do and was being chased right from start of game. Waste of time.

it didn't scare me much
(although i quit the game after finally seeing the "monster madman")
the graphics is great,
the environment is good as well as the ambience too
great job on there
controls are only the basics (not even an inventory?!)
some details i don't understand if they're even useful in the game like putting the teddy bear back in the chair?
i don't even get that
i downloaded the game because the trailer was nicely done with all the music and all but the sound isn't that much scary
i've also read that the BIG guy could only WALK. wow, maybe, if i didn't quit the game i might as well know how BIG of a loser he is -_-
overall, it's a game really worth playing and can be a great scare
specially the "monster madman's" sound effects
cool :)

Good game! I only have a few little nags here and there. For one the game isn't very scary, and the axe weilding mad man that tries to get is slower than the character can walk. It's also not clear what the player is supposed to do and it's also very unclear that you have to let the ae weilding mad man kill you before you can progress. The atmosphere is also slightly lacking and the game overall loses most of it's tension by the first encounter with the axe-weilding mad man. The game does have some very good graphics and the story is very interesting. I would really love to continue and find out what happens next. I was also impressed with the dynamic shadows which I think really added to the games already very nice graphics. The enviroment is also very interesting to explore.
Overall, this game could do with a bit more work in the scares department but it is a good adventure game and I would recommend it to anyone who like adventure games!

This is game gave me the chills multiple times within the first chapter. It's well worth playing. I'm anxiously awaiting more chapters to make me poo my pants.

The engine and game is really good, but the lack of sprinting and a guy walking behind you with a axe. WALKING. you can easily outwalk him.
This really damages the scaryness of the game. other than that it's only that the first chapter is short that's bothering me.

springing added, now it's like you walk a little bit faster

Great Graphics but low performance and very limited interaction.
Hope to improve it in the next versions

The only good thing about this game is the presentation. The rest is a cliched use of notes and a over done enemy type that doesn't even run when trying to catch the player. By the away, not allowing the player to run in a chase is anti-climatic...
