You found the strange door in the cave. In this door you saw long stairwell. You entered, and the door closed immediately. Now you have only one way - go forward...
Well, this game was quite good in atmosphere, but some of the scares were pretty weak. Oh well, good game though!
I made a LP on YouTube!- Youtu.be
Hey, I am here again to say that the link above is broken. Here is the new link!!
DID YOU KNOW? This is one of the few games that can be played by a rock. Position the mouse where you want it, place the rock on the W key, and wait until it finishes!
I don't want to sound mean, but I do think this is an interesting fact. :)
I made a LP, if you are too scared to play it yourself ;) Youtube.com
Now about the game. I think the atmosphere in it was spot on and you feared that anything could happen any minute. The scares weren't as good as the atmosphere, which brought down the quality of the game. The first scare got me, but the second scare just felt 'cheap'.
The pacing is another problem. I felt after a while bored because nothing happened. You could also add an actual monster, since there wasn't an actual threat in the game.
I would give this game a 7/10, but there's still plenty to improve on :D
Is there other ending?
Can you escape or it just ends there?
Hasn't this game been made twice already....
It was a different one.
The other one was made in Duke3D Engine I believe
I made a LP for this game if you are interested : Youtube.com
Review time : The game managed to set up a perfect atmosphere without a doubt. I felt my heart racing as I played and kept venturing through that endless corridor, however the scares weren't on the same level. Scares needed to be accompanied by some louder noises and they had to be like an overall creepier scares, how should I explain it xD Like instead of images popping infront of you, something like an enemy appearing infront of you (even if it's a 2D model, make it look directly at the player and rotate as the player moves, then make it dissapear like after 2-3 seconds after it has appeared). And in the end, the skull was quite nice, but it's semi invisible which didn't fit again. It's hard to spot and I didn't get as scared as I would normally if the skull was fully visible and moving quite faster.
Overall the game has a perfect atmosphere, but the climax was missing in my opinion :) Hope you see that as criticism not as hate. My rating is 8/10.
[PS I have played UnExit and this game is kinda better, I noticed you are the same guy who made unexit because you used the same skull xD]
