Thank you for playing my game! For a little insight on this game, it was mostly a project with no real plan, I mostly just came up with ideas on the run, which then lead to the dream theme. I initially had planned to think of more gimmicks to use, but struggling to come up with any good ones it turned out to mostly be needle. I'm not really terribly proud of it, even though the environments and overall mood turned out pretty good in contrast. I'm definitely going to plan out my next game better to ensure it's more in line gameplay wise to what I want.

Very cute. I would love another game like this with added difficulty, but designing stuff outside of your skill level typically isn’t a good idea. Very good game and atmosphere and I’m looking forward to more games from this creator.

Great beginner game.

Cleared again for FSR.

The visual atmosphere of the game is excellent; everything else kinda fell flat for me. It's really not interesting enough for me to enjoy unfortunately, and the clarity of where you need to go was a bit muddled at times and it ended up extending my playthrough by about 15 minutes because I just did not know where I needed to go (Also considering how the maker's previous game was laid out, I figured I needed to backtrack; would have honestly appreciated a tip there but it's w/e).

If you played riktoi's previous game, then this game is basically a bigger game built from the things that made "I am here" great. Very good atmosphere, excellent spritework. Once again there's a bunch of collectibles to grab this time, but they're a lot more in your way this time instead of having to go out of your way to find them (although some of them are still hidden). They're required this time around but even if you miss them it's pretty easy to go back to get them once you reach a certain point. Platforming is quite nice, definitively an improvement. There's some cool pathing in here as well especially with the most open-ended area.
It's less gimmicky than before for sure but there's some cool stuff here. Again, I'd love to see them used a bit more, as they are used quite well when they are used.

Once again, great work from riktoi, at an impressive speed as well. I'd be interested in seeing some more difficult platforming from them, but these light challenges are awesome and I can't complain. Would recommend to anyone.

Another fun abducted like game. (Dunno what to really call it.) I may be biased since i like these types of games a lot.
The platforming is quite basic, but there are some clever parts too it. There are some longer saves, that might be slightly more challenging than anything else, but only for absolute beginners. The collectables aren't all that hard too find and get. Maybe a bit too much so, I kind of wish they were more interesting to get.
The atmosphere was pretty unsettling at times, though i played this at 2 o clock at night, so this might just be a me thing. The music is pretty great, the tracks themselves aren't the best standalone songs, but they help the atmosphere a lot. The tilesets are neat too.
Recommended if you like atmospheric games.

An easy good rating from me since I am naturally inclined to like non-linear, dreamlike and surreal experiences, especially since the atmosphere is so well constructed and the soundtrack kicks butt all the way to the East. Exceptional visuals and sounds, nightmarish when it needs to. Please do mind that you require all items to advance into the story, and some of them are hidden.

Going "with ideas on the run" sometimes brings better results than planning them ahead. I do recommend it. Now bring me a longer, full-scaled experience!
