The creepy atmosphere really got to me. This was amazing...! (although I had trouble figuring things out lol - my reading comprehension is too weak)


Wow, this was really very well done! Brilliant use of sound and the GUI and art give just the right feeling! The story is spooky, but really good and I loved the mystery, I'm glad to have figured it out! Really awesome work!👏
