I think your craziness is infectious, probably will end up playing all of your games at this rate, something oddly nostalgic and liminal with this one. Thank you Dev for this nightmare!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
"When I was around 8 I was fixated on experimenting with glitches in Ocarina of Time- all the beta screenshots and GeoCities pages showing images of debug menus and random crud that got left in the ROM furthered this idea I had that all these things were still there, but just outside reach. It extended beyond Ocarina of Time, though, and soon I started thinking about all the other games I played and what was hiding there, and even began making maps of imaginary "debug areas" that I invented for games like Bomberman 64 and Quest. At the peak of all this I was having dreams about similar themes, and one of my favorites was about some supposed "beta" version of Big Boo's Mansion where it was just a big dead field with unfinished houses littering the grounds. I was looking for a book but this big round ghost-thing just kept following me. It didn't really do anything beyond that- always just watching. The imagery of that dream has stuck with me and although I don't remember a huge amount other than a few details and a general aesthetic, it's been enough to inspire strange feelings about darkness. This game isn't just based on that dream, but is instead a mixture of places and feelings that go well with the general idea in my mind."

A mysterious one. Found three endings thus far
Love it! Your idea was very well conveyed! I don't know what happened to me at the end though, when I saw a bunch of faces, but the game was a strong experience!
this was pretty spooky but i liked it!
Hi. I've been enjoying the hell out of your games lately. I played Crypt Worlds a while back, but have been revisiting these others and I have a new appreciation for the worlds you create. I can't wait the see what you've got planned next!
(PS- Symbol was my fav of the ones here, I think b/c it felt the most complete, but they are all damned exceptional.)
