Description

known bugs;

Going out of full-screen or alt+tabbing messes up some stuff. Press "F" to go back to full-screen.

When the metallic "beamer" gives an endless metallic high pitched noise that penetrates your ears til they bleed, just gently touch the "beamer/spotlight" thingy again.

Also to save everyone some trouble, when you hear the voice say "Bring it to me", that's not the same guy you met before. He's on the RIGHT.

A Picture, A Memory.

Recollect your best memory to bring with you to the after life.

    Captivating game. I included it in my GM48: Collect! compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/rCsnYYXDjwo

    Nice game! It feels very immersive, the whole package is just right. Keep going like this!

    Charon wasn't as lymbic-system-y as I'd expected :D Still very good, but a little short.

    One thing that kinda bothered me is the box. It took me way too long (and an accident) to understand that I could change the symbols!

    Another awesome entry from you Kyon, but the ending made me sad.

    When the game opens with "Press space to die", you know you're in for something special :D

    Great looking game, as always! The overlord is a real cutie ♥

    Great atmosphere, art style, and audio. Really enjoyed what you put together...like nothing else I've played this jam. As others said below, wish you had time to make the game a little longer. Overall, really cool stuff. Congrats on the good work :)

      Thanks a lot that's really kind! :)

    Same as last time, it's pretty strange but in a great way!

    Sometimes what had to be done wasn't very clear, and that would be my biggest criticism.

    Apart from that, the art style, the music, the voice acting, all really nice. I'm wondering, are there multiple endings by chance? I feel like the choices might have had an impact but am not really sure. If there are, I'll be sure to replay it :)

    Great job once again!

      Heya, the "choices" thingy was one of the first things I made, and I wanted it to be all about choices. But idk, time/motivation ruined it. The choices you have now have effect on some dialogue lines. But idk, not worth to do over I guess. This time it feeling all that strange wasn't even on purpose. I just seriously didn't know what to make of the game until the last few hours. It was kind of a really frustrating weekend haha.

      Thanks a lot! :)

    This was reeaal trippy, in a good way! The atmosphere was so cool and I really liked the deer guy. The puzzle with the symbols was very interesting, it's sad that the game is so short because this could be a really cool adventure with strange machines and stuff, not unlike Myth or something in this regard.

    The art is awesome!

      Thanks Toby! I also really liked the Deer guy, I think he was one of the last things I've drawn and I rushed it, but that gave him a very cool aesthetic.
