the atmosphere is so creepy & oppressive & good! 

I like the use of color to express the headache, to start with i though it was a poor choice, but then i realised it was genius because it made me feel lost and oppressed too


The silhouetted player sprite is a really cool idea, it looks great in the cave sections especially.

Also the way this escalated really fit the narrative, absolutely one of my favorite endings in a bitsy game.

Thank you :)

This is really good, the atmosphere is fantastic


this is so good!!!!! i really love how the maze looks and the very painful last few mazes are so great!!! like not great that it took a while for my eyes to adjust and i think the very last one was starting to give me a headache but like its super good for the narrative/mood/etc of the game!! plus a really cool way of doing it!! oh man and the scrolling was really good! i really REALLY enjoyed this game!!!


Thanks! I'll probably avoid replicating any of the maze effects in future, was even worse trying to work on it! Glad you enjoyed it :)

oh yeah it prob felt terrible to just stare and stare at the tiles as you made the mazes ha ha but it really is a very good game :)


This is really stylish, well done! That scrolling scene must have taken forever

Thank you! Yeah, the scrolling took way longer than I'd anticipated...
