This looks super cool and i would love to play it, it really reminds me of some of my favourite games. Do you have any plans to release it for Mac OS?

Thanks! I doubt there'll be macOS or iOS versions since I don't own a Mac with which to compile the game.


Fair enough. Either way, keep up the good work!


I didn't see Android mentioned. Are we in luck?

(1 edit)

Perhaps! I've played it on my Android phone and it works fine. One of the reasons the UI is like that is I wanted it to work on Android from the very beginning.


It's like you took all the best bits of those 90s dungeon games but minus the maddening parts. Definitely curious to see where this goes. Runs fine on my Win10 64 pc. Good day---

Thank you!


Looks great. Are there any plans for a GNU/Linux release? Since it is written in Unity...


Thank you! I'll try to make a Linux build for the next alpha release. Haven't tried that yet with Unity.

Your game looks amazing! I would for sure play it if I could. Looking forward to that Linux release :)


Thanks! I just uploaded an experimental Linux release. Hopefully it'll work!



I didn't have time to play it much but it does work on my system :) (Debian 11.3). Love the aesthetic!

I'll play it more later but I've noticed there's no sound, not sure if that's normal?

Yeah, it's normal. Sound is something that's planned at some point.


Where am I? Another world? Or Unity's floor?

That's quite funny, how did you do that?


I play it nomally until I went on a the same stair 3 times and saw a wall seem broken down of an explosion or something. Try to walk through the hole but get stuck by invisible wall, managed to peek through the wall though...

Thank you! I was able to figure out the bug, it wasn't blocked when re-entering the first floor of the game.

That is where you came from, story-wise speaking.


Was waiting for this release for a long time. Looks great, good job! :)



unable to play. Norton keeps removing the files because it considers them malicious


Thanks for reporting, does it mention which files? I've scanned the files with Malwarebytes Premium and it doesn't have any issues.

It looks like almost all of them but I'm unsure. I had about 50 notifications from Norton on the files that were blocked before i turned them off because it was preventing me from doing stuff on my computer. Unsure if it was repeating the alerts

All right, I submitted the files to Norton. Hopefully it'll get sorted out.


I'm still excited to play! I hope it works out :)
