Especially in the spiritual realm...
Your atmosphere was spot-on, though, I was very impressed. And the thing you did with the orbs and realms... brilliant! I would have liked more puzzle-solving
between the realms, though. It would have been very neat to solve a puzzle in the mortal realm and have it show up in the spiritual realm. As it was, though, everything had to be done in the spiritual realm, there was no reason to be in the mortal realm (except to have some damn light, haha). I did, however, dread going to the spiritual realm because I knew I would be encountering servants in there in the form of demons. Great job!
VERY well done! I look forward to the end!
Yeah I had a few puzzle ideas for the orb, but a lot of them involved having to have more than one orb.. which didn't fit well with the story. The sequel however..
Plus you hit the nail on the head. The mortal realm represented safety (when at first it was creepy.. it suddenly becomes a safe zone when compared to its darker side) I thought that would be an interesting switch.
I'm still working on development ideas for the sequel before I start. I've also considered maybe asking for some community help for anyone who might be interested. I'm thinking the sequel will involve a variety of different environments so having different map makers will be refreshing. I'll probably go over any maps I receive anyway to make sure it's bug free etc so anyone who helps will not have to worry too much
