Gave it a go...

Enjoy the Played game! 재밌게 플레이 했어요 :)

Glad you enjoyed it!

I really enjoyed the concept of a survival horror game being a very small space with noise management. It definitely lost it's edge after a bit and I seem to have completely missed seeing the monster model, I was looking in the wrong direction after accepting my fate. But for a 48 hour game this is great!

Thanks for your feedback!

Gave your game a go and it was filled with white knuckle tension and relentless unease and I loved every second of it!! Not sure if there is an actual ending or not to the game but I think I beat it... 

Thanks for the video! We had more of an ending in mind, but ran out of time at the Jam. Glad you enjoyed it, though!

It was impressive that you created such a creepy and atmospheric horror game with such limited time. Looking forward to your future games :)

Hey guys, I'm Nathan! I played your game today for my channel and wanted to drop the video here! I had a lot of fun and look forward to what you do in the future!

Awesome! Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing :D
