YOU DIED

It was an unremarkable end to an unremarkable life. 

If only you had more time... Alas this is the way of things.

BUT maybe, just maybe, there might be a way to somehow delay the inevitable!

Strike a bargain with DEATH and try and solve all their fiendish puzzles in a desperate last ditch attempt to buy some more time.

Hi, I've made a video about the game and wanted to share some feedback about it, hopefully it is useful to you if you plan on expanding the game ^^

-The concept of the game is really original and interesting, and you could expand the story in the game with that aproach you've already took for the dialogues.

-The gameplay mechanics are quite fun and the puzzles are usually quite balanced when it comes to difficulty and satisfaction after beating them.

-Visually the game looks quite nice and maybe adding some more elements on the background would make it feel a little bit better and less empty.

Hopefully this is useful to you  :D, also if you could subscribe that would help me a lot :)

Regards

Thank you for the feedback and for playing our game! You got a subscription 😉

I am a bit on the fence with the visuals.  I like the clean minimal look we decided on (and that was necessary to fit this into a game jam) and it invokes purgatory and helps you focus on the gameplay, but my original vision was a bit more elaborate. I might play around with it a bit more!

Yeah I totally loved the visual aproach, with a few elements I meant something like a few smoke/clouds visual effects around the background to give some sens of extra depth to the layers between the board, the player and the death :D
