The game keeps crashing as soon as it it launched, even after launching the vcredist file :/ Any ideas anyone?

The grapics of the game are really bad and I don't really understand why the goal of the game is collect cats:

"The goal is to collect as many cats as possible before the Grim Reaper catches you."

The game mechanics has you said are really similar to slender (the first, not the arrival). So... what makes that difrent from slender? Why would I play that game with lazy graphics and bad story beside slender? If that's just a game demo, sorry about my critics, I will wait for more them... but if it isn't the game looks really bad to me...

Thanks for your criticism, the difference to slender is that in our game you explore an endless, randomly generated world, where you find special locations and items. Also you have cute kittens instead of boring pages you can collect. :)

Outstanding work on this game! One of the most genuinely entertaining indie games I've come across in a good long while. Just silly enough to be fun, just dark enough to stay creepy. I did a quick let's play to showcase it for Last Level Press. Check it out here:

Hope you enjoy it half as much as I did playing the game!
Cheers,
