I just played this game and I can honestly say that I really enjoyed playing it. It had a terrifying atmosphere to the point that I was really paranoid and felt like I was being watched and followed. I definatley would reconmmend this game!

I always wondered how a horror themed fps version of tomb raider would be. You got really close to that!
Your game offers a short, extremely atmospheric experience. No constant jumpscares and predictable mechanics to induce fear. Instead what you did is something that makes you feel secluded and alone with the constant fear of a monster being around you.
On top of these you picked the indonesian mythology for the game's story. It's one of the least known mythologies and the Mananangaal is pretty interesting and terrifying.
Visually the game is impressive considering the time limit. Pretty consistent quality overall from the post process effects to the texture and model quality.
Audio wise the mix overall is balanced and the sound effects/music are fitting the environments. Especially the ambient track adds a lot to the dark environment of the mines.
All in all, I totally enjoyed it! It has potential to be a really awesome title, if you keep working on it. It is definitely something unique!
I wish you the best for your next projects!!
P.S I confused the characters' names. I thought I played as Vanessa instead of Lucy. xD
I am yet to play the game. but I'm afraid you're wrong about the origin or inspiration of its mythology. I bet it's Philippine mythology, while I know for the fact that 'Manananggal', even the title itself, is uniquely Filipino, specifically Tagalog. Indonesian–Malaysia mythology may have similar mythological creature as 'Manananggal'.
Super fun and scary game!!!!
i liked it. very interested filipino folklore! :)
Really good atmosphere and a super creepy monster! Can't wait to see more of it! :D
Im not sure if i was dieing in the game.. i think i might have been but whatever it was really fun! glad to have played it!
I am definitely interested in Filipino Mythology now after this game and also wish big Triple A games utilized it more.
Made a video
That's Great Game! I Really Enjoyed Play.
I hope that the play will be updated a little longer.
재밌게 플레이 했어요!
Gave it a go...
While the game was rather brief and wasn't much more than a walking simulator, you really nailed the atmosphere! I found the Philippine mythology pretty intriguing, as it's not something often seen in this medium, but I found the focus on the details of the protagonist a bit strange. Not because of who or what they were but because of how little their overall role in the game was. Most of what was going on was explained by text dumps and it almost felt like the protagonist's story was irrelevant to the game. Overall, I had a good time and enjoyed it. More feedback at the end of the video!
Hello, this was an interesting game I do like the Philippines culture very much and this had a lot of scary elements. Good game. 5/5.
very good game i enjoyed it a lot it gave me a tense feeling going through those cavesand for a game that was only in development for a short time it was visually very impressive i would kinda have like to found out what happened after we got out the mine but hopefully maybe we get to see that in the future all in all a good game mycket bra
