Thanks for playing!


Fun game, could not manage to finish it, would have liked a little more instructions on what to do, loved the art style and the hiding mechanic is really cute. Keep the good work!


We wanted to keep the atmosphere of mystery, the game is difficult and there are things that need to be fixed, so we will work on it, but basically the objective is to escape from the dungeon, thanks for playing.


Thank you very much for playing our game, we are still working on polishing several details to improve the gameplay, we will update little by little while we can, by the way, nice video, I really enjoyed watching it and I laughed a lot!
