Big thanks to Krystian - and of course the rest of the team - for what was a short yet incredibly enjoyable game experience.

("Short" not in a "not worth it" way, but instead meaning I hate that it ended so soon - I could have played on for hours/days/weeks without growing bored of it.)

It will take some time before that melancholic and fuzzy feeling will wear off... ;)

Like many others I got - and first heard about - Trauma through the Humble Bundle. Actually, it was the sole reason I got the current one, and I feel it was worth every single cent I paid for it. It's such a simple and yet engaging game play, and I really love the "less challenge, more immersion" approach. And immersive it definitely was - not the least thanks to the soft, drowsy voice acting and the mesmerising music/ambience sounds.

To me the only slight drawback would be that it's definitely not a game everybody will find enjoyable, but then again, what do I care about everybody! :P
(And I'm always happy to see that there are still developers out there that dare to go the non-mainstream route to get an idea out of their system. )

Btw, at first I thought about replying to the YouTube comments (those really made me wonder what people were expecting after watching the trailer, looking at the screenshots and maybe even playing the preview - another one of those kill-x-to-gain-y clones?), but then decided a plattform with people having an attention span longer than the time between two monster grinding kills might be more appropriate... ;)

Good idea! When it comes to moving around, I'm probably conditioned on using arrow keys over WASD and definitely WASD over IJKL... :D

Though I can say with a little bit of pride that my performance with WASD and arrow keys has become a bit less awkward by now. ;)

Btw, thanks so much for the game, love both the concept and the graphics.

15 hours? Not when you're constantly plunging into nirvana because you just tried to move with the arrow keys... :D

I'm obviously a complete fail at playing this game, but the fact that I'm currently downloading the full version tells a lot about how much fun it is. Looking forward to dozens of hours of making a total idiot out of myself! :D

Now, is it sunday already? Is it sunday already? *in an insolent children on the car's backseat kind of voice*
