I really like the art style and perspective. Hopefully the content is robust enough to make exploring satisfying.

I was looking forward to this one, until I found out that it’s like Dark Souls, they expect you to die all the time and then have to cover most of the same ground you covered before over and over. I like the art style, but I’m not sold on that gameplay.

Looks more Lovecraft than self-titled Lovecraft games.

Ugh... I went from interested to not interested at all. The art and music seem cool but I'm not interested in that style of game. It works for some styles of games for me (shmups for example) but I'm not interested here.

Been waiting for this since what, 2014? Has always looked interesting, we'll see if it's good.

I try to cut back on posting negative comments on upcoming games, because I perfectly understand that they serve no-one. But having spent 5 minutes of my life watching this trailer and the one on the Steam page, I feel entitled to saying: These look supremely boring! Trailers are supposed to make your game look exciting and attractive! How can an experienced indie developer like Capybara Games not understand this?

I played for an hour this morning. The game is pretty and atmospheric, but the gameplay is exactly what we were talking about... a random dungeon and when you die you are set back at the beginning and forced to go through everything again.

It is a shame because it's such a pretty game and the gameplay is kinda lame. I was fun for that hour, but there is no way I would pay $25 for this one.

It is exactly the kind of thing you will be seeing for $5 on some future Steam sale.

I don't know who likes these kind of games, I'm not one of them.

Since we were trying not to be negative, the gameplay was decent and fun and there seems to be lots of little things you can craft and the art is just amazing. I just wasn't in love with the idea of losing the hour of progress I just put into the game.

Played for a few more hours last night. Made a lot more progress the second time through and even got some upgraded armor. It has a crafting system like Minecraft, you combine three items and you get something new. Since the game just launched, you have to kinda just hope you are making something you need.

The art is impressive all the way across the board. The grotto with the wrecked ships is amazing and it was fun to swim around everything.

I got down to level 3 and then stopped for the night. It doesn't really save your progress, but it kinda maps out where you have been with some minor randomization.
