1. No story at all (yet ?)
I have the story and all, I just got to add the notes... :)

3. Some blinking models (example: after opening the first door after start)
4. Cool jumpscare (after picking machine room key), but using it once is enough.
5. You should use point lights more, because you use box lights wrong: there should be only a one for the WHOLE level. Transitions between 2 boxlights are hella ugly. Oh, and maybe you didn't notice, but usually lamps aren't enough to lighten the place. That's why u use point lights.
On my todo list :)

(actually I had the candle selected when I duplicated something else in another room and didn't notice I duplicated the lamp aswell)

It is not pointless story-wise, you'll see.

When you make puzzles (or anything else, actually) think like you were the player, and you didn't know anything. Helps to make them more doable.

That lever is utterly pointless and will get removed in the next update. About the puzzle, there is a note which I think gives hints on the solution of the puzzle (and pretty big ones at that :))
Spoiler below!
Noticed the pig carcasses in a room not too far from where the bucket was? You get to cut a slab of meat with a rusty knife you can find near the lantern, in a chest. Too bad it must be brought into condition first (in the basement). When you have both food and water, you are strong enough to level that door!
But yeah, will take that in mind when I work on more puzzles :))

Of course I don't feel insulted, quite the contrary! I thank you for taking your time to relay your criticisms to me! :)


PS: When I get home, I will add screenshots of the map I'm working on.
