I made a Short on this game 

Interesting concept to say the least. The lack of UI made it take a few tries before I fully understood all the mechanics but once they were all known it felt really good.

Loved the game! I didn't get far as I normally get confused in maze games like this, but had alot of fun! Plus the mechanics of it were new to me and pretty neat!

Dois anos depois - REPLAYED Pretty good, game as ever. Porque falar em inglês, descobri há pouco que não preciso aqui. Após dois anos jogado pela primeira vez.

Idk why I'm holding my heart or what it was all about, but it was a great but very strange experience haha. That ending got me mindblown. 


Congrats for making a very good game. I liked the way you have to balance the heartbeats to be able to find the four doors. Amazing!


hi, big thx for the cool game. greetings from rosti 😍


I like the cursor on this page :)


Thanks a lot ;')
Glad you liked it


Same!! I love it.


I played through the game and actually recorded it for my channel. This game, while a little more silly, was a lot of fun to play through. If anything can be said, it's that this game is certainly unique. I managed to figure out the mechanics fairly quick, but still got myself killed a few times. It is a short little adventure that shouldn't take too long to get through, as long as you don't get lost like me. All in all, I had a blast, thank you!


hey i wanted to say this game was a good challenge that i enjoyed, and say thanks! i wanted to share my reocrding, though it seems like im frustrated im just enjoying the trial lol. thanks again and cheers!

Gostei muito dessa apresentação estilo 32 bits. Realmente parece um game de qualidade para Saturn ou Playstation.

Parabéns pelo projeto. Estou ansioso para testa-lo.

Uma sugestão, coloca um vídeo de trailer com gameplay, mesmo que seja um rápido de menos de um minuto, ajuda a saber o que esperar.


I really enjoyed this 32-bit presentation. It really looks like a quality game for Saturn or Playstation.

Congratulations on the project. I look forward to testing it.

A suggestion, put a trailer video with gameplay, even if it is a quick one less than a minute, it helps to know what to expect.


I liked it. I'll keep playing and record until end. Here I just show the game as game acknowledge. Congratulations, it is very simple but effective enjoyable. Thanks for this game.
