A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

[WARNING: contains audio-visual jumpscares]

You find yourself in the deep darkness of the woods, with nothing but the occasional lightning strike to illuminate your path as you scramble to find your protective charm.  All the while, something is coming for you, and if you stray too far from your stalker the charm seems to be slipping away, so you might just have to seek danger out instead of running from it…

Made in 48 hours for GMTK Game Jam 2019. The theme was only one.

Unfortunately I was unable to get web build working properly for this one.

Played this for a 3 free indie horrors video (All games in the video are from this Jam) This is a neat little game for the most part. Nothing particularly special about it, but not that bad nonetheless. If you want a full, honest and more in-depth review, i give that at the end of my video below. 


Thank you, that was fun to watch! All fair criticisms! c:


Thanks for watching and not taking things i said too harsh. I've had devs get so angry with me about my criticism. But, just know. my end goal is nothing more than to help devs make good and better games! Thanks for being so respectful and honest. I see big things for you in later work!
