Hi! I've just played through your game.
It's really cool. :)

I love the artwork of the main menu and paintings in the game. The sounds were nice, but a bit quiet (it also started with a volume of 0 for me).

The gameplay was alright, but the buried tool was a bit silly and I had problems seeing stuff. There should be a brightness setting in the game. ^^

The interactions were mostly fine, but you should make a better usage of the icons to differentiate between actions and examinations. Especially for the choice in the end. I just wanted to look at it with the eye icon, but ended the game. XD

All oil lamps share the same description texts, even the unlit one on the backside. ^^

Overall it was a cool atmospheric experience. Congratulations on your game project! :)


thank you very much for the feedback!
