Any chance of a Mac version?

The dark, brooding city is a character in itself. At every turn you are made to feel like a stranger in a strange land, and it never gets any easier.

Quite unlike any other game out there, its art direction and music are spectacular. Go check it out for yourselves.

I wish the developers the best of luck in their future projects, can't wait to explore the strange new worlds you conjure up.

I definitely don't have enough time to get all of the stones at the mines. Maybe this is because of lag? I see videos where people gather all of the stones without backtracking to the entrance even once.

no credit card payment option?

cool never played but now i can!!


Really nice Game, loved the experience. Is this game symbolysing the immigration of people from texas to the usa? It felt like it to me even though i know very little about the topic as a european. Can somebody tell me what the mother stands for? Capitalism?


I see that I write notes down at the bottom left, but how do I access these notes?


By leftclick onto the postboxes that you will find on every floor. If you have no letter it will read you have nothing to say.

hey, how do i stop the game crashing at startup, what are the minimum requirements to run it?

I really want to play this game, it definitely interests me, and I downloaded it, unzipped the .zip file, clicked the game, saw the "Unity" logo flash...

And then the game crashed.

I tried a few more times, deleted the unzipped file, then tried again, made it windowed...

nothing worked.

Someone please help me because at this time I'm just ripping my hair in anger because it won't work. At all.

This game has been absolutely beautiful. The game-play keeps you hooked, while the intriguing storyline and the strange environment put shivers through your spine. This was the best game that I have ever played from itch.io. Marvelous!

Really interesting game. The atmosphere is quite... unsettling. I really like the letters as a form of instructions.


Absolutely beautiful. Honestly I'd rate this one a must play for 2016 b/c it hits on a lot of the major sociopolitical themes that've come up this year (in the West, at least.)

The aesthetic brilliance didn't hurt, either.

You might want to warn of the flashing images in the scene on the third level - I wasn't expecting it, though flashing images don't bother me I know they're an actual medical issue for people with epilepsy. Wouldn't be too much of a spoiler to just make a note of it in the description I think.

Anyways this is one of my favorite free experiences I've had ever. Amazing job.

A breathtaking look at a dystopian alien society. Though maybe not so different then our own.

I was quite impressed when I played it

And I played it in German as well:

I saw this game at the A Maze! I'm glad I revisited it after just spending some minutes with it. Very atmospheric and surreal. Thanks for the experience!

(Edited 1 time)

After I died in the mine, I couldn't concentrate (accelerate) the next time I went there (is that a bug?), and I couldn't complete the challenge. Also when I quit (Alt+F4) and started the game again, it hadn't saved my progress. Is there a menu somewhere?

Fantastic. We need more things like this in the indie community.

Watch it here

I liked having to figure things out on my own, I really felt like a stranger to a foreign land, though sometimes the task required wasn't clear enough and it lead to some frustrations that put a bad taste in my mouth.

Specifically there's a task where you dont get a note telling you what you need to do until after you've done it. With the only connection being that one of the things in the city is sleeping. A large leap of logic at par with a point and click adventure.

Still it looked incredible, and the mood set was grand. Totally worth a try if you're thinking about giving it a download.
