Under rating threshold (show) You know who the *real* villain is here? It's this "Watcher" guy who has the power to drop meteors in your path but lets you go on a mindless killing spree when he could have just handed the seed to you. For the record, *all* those killings were self defense, I totally yelled "It's coming right for us!" before each one!

Under rating threshold (show) I love this game, but I feel like there should be more to the story. I found an interesting thing. I explored my way up to Trohn too early, and I met Sardol at the entrance. He said something like, "You must think you're clever to come north so soon. You're not nearly ready for this, fool. Get out of here." He looked big and buff, but he wore red and black armor, like the armor you get. What's interesting is what he used to look like. If you find the statue of Sardol, you learn that he sought to kill the nine Creatures of the Relic, and that he did kill the Goreback, and he looked just like you! In the statue, he is shaped like you and has two eyes, instead of one like most people. It just seems so intentional. Oddly, it seems like Sardol killed the Goreback ages ago, yet he seems to be current. Also, the Creatures of the Relic are a mystery. What Relic? And if they are so good and shouldn't be killed, why do they each have their own domain, and what purpose do they serve there?

Under rating threshold (show) Decent adventure game in the style of the old map-based classics, which is why it needs a map and some kind of progress tracker.

Under rating threshold (show) You should've been more descriptive in just how you define "r = reset." I thought it meant that you just kill yourself and start over the level; now I have to do everything all over again, but I don't have the time or the patience to do that. For everyone that doesn't know, 'r' resets the entire game. :(

I'm sorry! I guess I never really considered that "restart" would mean anything else, but I added a little more to the description in the controls on this page.

Under rating threshold (show) This game really needs a Reset Level button, 'tis far too easy to get yourself into a situation you can't figure out how to get out of, or completely wreck your ability to continue because the only way to reset the area is not possible to use.

Press <ESC> to go to menu and then any button. It's a really fast and easy way to get to the beginning of a level.

Under rating threshold (show) I really enjoyed the game (even with that screen in the lava dungeon), some small things I enjoyed were worth mentioning, first if you start a new game and decide to explore before beating the first boss the watcher is nowhere to be found. Also like how you're able to hear about the first relic creature before you beat the first boss... And can't get into the bar to hear about the darkness until after the first boss. Another interesting thing, there are only 5 people with 2 eyes in the whole game, the witch, music guy, yourself, the Watcher, and Sardol... Makes you wonder how the oracle got the seedling for his first tree, and what happened to Sardol. Then at the end, how you look pretty similar to the frozen monster, and to think that the watcher did that, really just adds a whole lot of weight to the bloody ending... Also, thought there'd be more to the bloodless ending, maybe fighting the monster once you walk near it with the amulet or the hero becoming a creature of relic himself

Under rating threshold (show) dear Mr. Developer, i know you dont want to make a map, but i hope you reconsider. it doesnt have to be a detailed map, maybe just boxes that stretch out to other boxes, just to show what room you are in, but just for the overworld maybe. the dungeons dont need maps, the players can figure out where to go, its after the dungeon, when there is currently no objective, that we may get lost. so maybe make a map that can be as under detailed as you want, just show us the possible ways you can enter and leave an area. sincerly, a concerned gamer + if you agree

Under rating threshold (show) It's a great game and I really enjoyed playing and most of the music so far. Only complaint is the extreme difficulty to proceed after being trapped in the Bosiniad level. It is seldom that I ragequit a game, but this made me do this since I would have bitten my keyboard if the hammer pushed me into the lave one more time. It's nice to have some tricky obstacles to overcome, but this is just ridiculously hard for a way you have to pass if you wish to continue your game. This would have been more appropriate for a pathway to an optional bonus or easter egg - or to achieve secondary goals. Other than that, great game so far.

Developer response from TimeBlog

Well the idea is mostly that they're animalistic, for the most part, and you're the one moving into their territory. For example, the Tentacled Beast attacks you when he sees you, obviously, but he isn't to blame for it--you came to him and threatened him in his home. It is your fault for seeking out danger and killing things that wouldn't try to kill you if it weren't for you invading their home.
