Ah, thanks a lot! I'm done now. Unfortunately I hadn't made notes for detailed feedback in the beginning because I had thought it would be a lot shorter due to the small size. Confused

Spoiler below!

I really liked that there was no monster in the beginning, this created some tension. The hiding places for the keys were well chosen!

The water part was really great, again it helped to create tension that the monster wasn't in there from the beginning. The need to find that huge wood piece in the next part was a nice idea, too!

And of course I liked the idea to switch to another realm via the orb.

Again, sorry that I cannot go into more detail now because I didn't make notes. I'll see if I can replay it some time to say more.


There was one huge negative thing though: the darkness. It was just too dark in my opinion. Maybe the intention was to make the maps scary by this, but to me it made them a bit frustrating because I had to move so slowly and carefully to search the rooms properly.

The task to use the hammer & chipper on that wall was not clear to me. I can't remember now if there was a hand symbol coming up when looking at the wall, probably I should have seen that. If more players find this bit too unclear maybe you could add a hint somewhere.

I had one problem with the wheels behind that wall. On my first try I turned each wheel from left to right - nothing happened and the wheels were stuck. I left the whole map and reentered. I found the wheels were "unturned" again. This time I turned the middle one first by chance and got the "you moved on, receive sanity" effect. So I was supposed to turn the middle wheel first? Was there a hint for this that I missed? And if this is the right way why couldn't I try again but had to leave the map?

It's a pity the lever machine and the locked door in the temple have no use now, I'm not sure: Should there be messages saying that these don't have a purpose?

All together: Great story with very nice ideas, hope to see more! Smile
