The game has three endings. There are elements of dialogue which are random each playthrough, and a pattern for the room layout generation which is possible to puzzle out. I hope you enjoy your visit to the realm of waking nightmares :~)

I got all three goals, it took about 15 minutes This was a pretty neat game, really Lovecraft-esque!

Fun, perfectly frustrating yet easy, totally wicked.

Also, great audio and graphics.

Polyducks content is pure class.

This looks very interesting

I'm excited to try it out

Really fun game, I played through all three endings and each was satisfying. I loved the twist of the game at the end, and how I got to be a different entity every time. At one time it generated me as "Night Mother" with a giant eye and I adored it. Really interested to see what else you make, I love this kind of content.

I'm really glad you enjoyed it :) The new entity generations were a lot of fun and I think I'd like to revisit the idea of branching dialogue in another game. It's a lot of fun to illustrate and write for. All the ending content was adlibbed in the last few days of the jam, but I think that's where the game is strongest.

Wow, the art and ambience of the game is so cool! The game reminded me a bit of Shadowgate or Déjà Vu II for GBC, and the music helps to create a dark athmosphere. Great! :)

I love it! At first I was confused but after a while I realized that the confusion was perfect. Art is so stylish!
