"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).

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!

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
