Under rating threshold (show) I accidentally clicked past the letter September wrote to January when he set out for Looming for the third time, and I can't seem to find them anywhere else. Maybe it wasn't too important, but I can't help feeling like I'm missing something now. Anyone know where I can find the letters outside the game?

Under rating threshold (show) 1) If you are looking for a beginning, you will find the first signpost here: ˙ɥʇɹou dn ʞlɐʍ ʇuıod sıɥʇ ɯoɹɟ ˙ɐǝɹɐ ʎɥɔʇɐd 'punoɹ ɐ ɥɔɐǝɹ noʎ llıʇ ʇsɐǝ oƃ uǝɥʇ '(ssoɹɔ ɐ ǝʞıl sʞool ʇɐɥʇ ɹɐllıd ǝɥʇ ɥʇıʍ) ɥʇɐd ǝɥʇ ɟo puǝ ǝɥʇ ɥɔɐǝɹ noʎ llıʇ ɥʇɹou oƃ 'ǝɯɐƃ ǝɥʇ ɟo ƃuıuuıƃǝq ǝɥʇ ɯoɹɟ 2) I suggest “geography”, or maybe only “topography” be a number VII path ring… 3) I seriously think this game should be badged!

Under rating threshold (show) I would love to see a badge for this game of some kind. It was amazingly done, and I loved discovering the story. It seems like the sort of game that could easily have one.

Under rating threshold (show) As nearly-everyone says, a map would be helpful. Links to a map have been found, but a map in the game is what I really need, something to show where I currently am. Also, a save button, or some kind of save point. I would like to look at all of the endings without having to restart and collect all of the artifacts over and over again to get all of the endings, one by one. On another note, I liked having a lot of little details to notice: I took a while to notice that the little person actually runs, and the structures have shadows. I played most of the game muted, but when I finally turned the sound on, I was totally creeped out - not a bad thing. Although it's wind, I feel like something demonic is breathing on my neck, it was pretty thrilling. Maybe it wasn't wind, afterall. Another question: what are the crawling things? Bugs, mammals? Either way, I started feeling bad whenever I stepped on them and they ran away. Really great game, just needs a map and saving points. 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) To anyone having problems finding the FIRST Signpost, it is located EAST of the LARGE CROSS on a Grayish small land. For you to find the LARGE CROSS, just walk NORTH from your starting point. OR Find/Go to the SECOND Signpost, according to the 4th Signpost located between two Metal Plates, and walk straightly through NORTH and Find a small piece of grayish land/the First Signpost BTW http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/1065/loomingmap.jpg It is the mini map LOL Peace and Free Will

Under rating threshold (show) i generally am baised against newgrounds, but this provided an immersive setting with newgrounds usually more disturbing content to a minimal. i finished to all but one ending (in which you find all of the rings of sciences), but had no instigation to move onward due to the fact that no "end" really carried a satisfying result.

Under rating threshold (show) Developer, have you considered adding the Kongregate API? You could have it report the number of endings the player has unlocked, and maybe separately report each ending... I could smell badges.

Under rating threshold (show) yeah because all of the sign-posts are refered to by previous sign-posts, the lower their number the less likely you are to find them. and then the one hint "east of the second hidden sign-post" which requires you know the first hidden sign post, which is the most unlikely to find is a little... there could have been a trick to help finding the first sign post, like having one of the later sign-posts read something like "east of here, just past the first hidden sign post" or something like that.

Under rating threshold (show) I wasn't going to complain about anything, until I didn't walk through the portal I made by finding all the signposts, instead opting to try a different one because I thought hey, I found them all, everything stays. That immediately made me drop the entire game because there is no way I'm redoing that in a game this "empty and vast". Yes, I was intrigued by the story, and what happened there, but not enough to waste more minutes simply walking and being lost on a huge map.

Under rating threshold (show) I know you made everything be near the path, but I felt like I had explored all of the path and not found everything, so I started a tedious exhaustive search, and then found a walkthrough to find the last few things. This was unpleasant enough and basic enough to the gameplay that it dropped my opinion of the game to 3/5 from probably 5/5 otherwise. Some amount of mapping with marks of where you had found things would fix this.
