Pretty scary game good job!

I found this quite compelling. Curious as to what is going on, guess ill have to wait and see. Look forward to finding out!

I really enjoyed this and I'm curious about the full version. Great work!

This was a very creepy and scary game. You did an incredible job at making it feel claustrophobic.

Thank you for playing

This was terrifying!! The Atmosphere inside the cave and the way the enemy first appearance when you crouching is not really good for your heart!! Also I sorry for unable to finish the game due not able to jump over the bridge.

Good game. I can wait for the full version. Continue the hard work my friend!!!

Love from Malaysia.

Thank you for playing and giving your feedback! Yes, the bridge part is quite difficult for those who don't like platforms, maybe I'll make it easier in the full version of the game)

it's not often a game makes me scream but your did! kudos to you dev man

Glad you liked it, thanks for playing.

Fixed the bug with the disappearance of the pickaxe after death!

Thank you! You not supposed to loose your pickaxe its a but! I ll fix it soon! Thank you for letting me know.

Alright new update is up! VAR 0.3 - is the newest  version of the game. I also left previous version if you encounter some nasty bugs in the new update or just want to compare the two versions. Thank you for playing and writing your honest opinion, it's very important to me and I try to fix all the problems that you find. 

Interesting Game, loved the ps1 vibes, sort of reminded me of Original Doom or System Shock. I did get lost quite a bit while playing the game, I am not sure if I managed to get out of bounds into places I was not meant to go, though I guess this is the problem when exploring mines. I did manage to complete it, although I don’t believe I grabbed the rope and triggered the end on accident.

Fun exploration, want to know more on what is going on in the mine, especially why there are so many people in there.

I  watched your video, you picked up the rope and got through the game like you were supposed to) Thank you for playing and your review!

Hey can you make a .zip version as well cause I can't use .rar files on my computer...idk why it just won't let me

okay i will make a zip version with the new update, please comeback tomorrow)

Hey, new update is up and avaible in zip archive)

Thx man ur the bes

For a demo this was not bad at all. Definitely needs some more work as I encountered an issue to where enemies would clip through walls and stuff. Other than that, it was a pretty good experience. Made a video on it.

This one was a challenge. I needed to know what happened to my daughter! but, sadly, I got overwhelmed by crazy psycho miners!

This game is amazing ngl. I also made my own gameplay video, and also the controls are binded through Xbox controller. ^^

Thank you.

Made a video

Interesting game for sure. I'd only suggest that the stamina regen be a tad bit faster to regen. Besides that, good job on the game.

Here's my channel for other games I have played. https://www.youtube.com/c/Levont

Thank you for playing i am working on an update)

If anything, I take careful note of all criticism and have already started working on an update that will include new weapons, sounds, screen loading screensavers and even new mechanics! Thank you all for your comments.

A very interesting game, full of mysteries. However, I think the Menu, History and even loading screens could be a little neater in my opinion. Apart from that, the rest is fine. Congratulations on your game.

Gave it my Let's Play and feedback/suggestions within - 


Thank you for your honest and valuable critique.I did experience some problems when creating sounds for environments, I will look at the examples you advised in your video and fix the bullets speed  in future updates, thank you


This is good so far. My problem was the running stamina, it depleted a bit too fast. Also, the amount of shotgun ammo should stay the same after you died. I once died at those rock jumping part and my ammo revert back to 2/2 and need to go back to collect ammo again.

Thank you for your feedback. I will fix all of these issues in the full version.

The number of notes at the end is not shown correctly, there are 6 notes in the game!  I'll fix it soon.

Fixed it!

Spooky, shooty, good ol' fashioned fun. Would love to see subtitles for NPCs. Also wish there was a melee attack option.

Thank you for playing and your comments.

big creepy and made people cave...damn


Excellent Demo!

Most of all I did enjoy the atmosphere. Weirdly enough I did not expect NPC to talk much and I accidently killed of couple before their animations played and it was hilarious. I replayed it second time, of course and listened to their stories.

For the demo, it is amazing to be able and showcase so much in such short time. I love the mechanics, simple AI, sound design and of course the creepiness of it all. 

One minor issue, which is a personal preference, I wanted to have more time for sprint or to make the stamina go back quickly, which is a bit unbalanced in these type of games. but I think for the final project, you would improve all. 

Good luck with the game! Cheers! 

Thanks for your feedback, I'm considering adding items that will replenish stamina.
