I'm very glad you enjoyed the game :)
We'll be announcing some more full-featured experiences sometime soon, so stay tuned!
Glad to hear it! I'm pretty new to anything off Steam, so I'm pretty starved of unique experiences, so this was especially different from what I was used to. I'm really curious of what can be done with gaming as an artistic medium, and this game was kind of a gateway of possibilities from my point of view- I hope to see more of it.
Feedback on Depression: I had a moment when the ground was declining below me that I was terrified that I was going to fall right into what was metaphorically a pretty dark state of mind, which for some people would perfectly characterize the experience. I don't know if you considered adding some kind of gradual acceleration that sort of climaxed to a moment of just sliding helplessly into the pit below? I don't know. I know you're probably very past this particular game, but I thought I might share what I was feeling in that moment for you in case it becomes relevant to a future project.
I'm going to give the contribution box another pass on this one.
