for the next episode I'll be sure to run back through the earlier sections to grab those journals!

Doing a short series on this now. I've gotta say, I went in not expecting much. But was pleasantly surprised. All of the environments are unique and beautiful, the music choices are gorgeous and really sell the atmosphere and there is an amazing sense of both adventure and dread throughout the world. The story is minimal, but there is enough there to keep you intrigued and invested.

I did have a few issues mechanically though, some of the journals weren't readable and seemingly hindered my progression on the tropical area. Looking forward to finishing this awesome experience you've crafted.


Thank you so much for the feedback :D

I feel really stupid I just fixed that bug with the journals but apparently that problem came back and im really annoyed that after all this testing it decided to break again >:(

Im going to update it ASAP (I just fixed the issue with the journal.)  Was the journal on the island the only one that didn't work?


Okay I just updated it.  I'm so annoyed that that unity update screwed it over but oh well..  stuff happens.

Heya, I hate to be a bother but many, if not most, of the journals and notes are still unreadable. The one that appears to be progression breaking (though that is speculation on my end as there may be another way to progress) is in the area after the sled on the floating platforms near the beach. I've played the updated version and it seems to be identical to the earlier one in which ones can and can't be read.  I don't know if you watched my video on it, but it does show each note and journal and whether they can be read up to that point. I have really enjoyed the game so far and hope to see it to completion. Looking forward to an update :)


Thanks so much for sticking along for this mess XD I finally figured out the problem and it was really stupid but im playtesting it and making sure its all good - Il have a final version up as soon as I can :)

(I feel like such a dork since the game was working perfectly when I put it on GameJolt but I had to compress the game assets a bit so i could put it on Itch.io and my new version of unity messed a bunch of stuff up and ugh)

No worries at all, I'm always impressed that anyone can turn around, find the issue and fix it. I sometimes have a hard time with WASD, space and a mouse.


Haha I just finished playing through the whole thing and everything is working as intended.  The update will be released in around 15 mins! :D


Okay all that chaos is finally over and the final build is complete :)
