Deluge was just released early this morning around midnight. Awesome game! Everyone on here should check it out. Very dark, dreary, and super atmospheric.
Fun game! Very dark, some good spooks. Beat it last night. The very last scene made me feel a bunch of feelings.

I ran into one confusing bug:
When going through the "warm plate" maze after lighting the four flames, I must've gotten a little lost, because at one point I came to the end of an empty hallway. I pressed 'z' to try and see if something was there, and it warped me to a new hallway with a door; when I went through, it took me outside in the village with demons everywhere, except it was bright outside and the background music was playing. It was a little jarring, I don't know what was supposed to happen. I went back in the house and then did the maze again and found the "correct" way through but yeah.


Good times were had!

Thank you so much for playing and finishing it! Means a lot.
Yeah, that music bug has been fixed - the game should be version 1.2 now! :)

You're welcome to update, but I'm happy to hear you've finished it!

So I think I might be biased here, because I'm riggy's friend, and I helped test this game, but I really enjoyed this. I think it's a neat tale about a skeleton in a town that's undergoing a reaping, and features non-linear roaming where you interact with books and fight with skeletons and there's an oppressive atmosphere. But also it feels quite directed! There's plenty of clues that lead to most of the progression, save for a part where perhaps the puzzle could be ignored by some (sweat smile) but in general, there's spooks to be had! It's a great Halloween game. I played an early demo that was a bit less formed, but riggy really managed to up the game's... game and managedprovide a tale of a dying town and a tragedy that lies within that emotionally effects. Totally worth it. (love ya riggy XD)
Great fucking trailer ♥,
I love it. shit. lol.
It's so good!!

Just gotta say, this is a 5/5 game. Did submit a review to RMN on October 31, still waiting on that to be approved. Hopefully more reviews for this lovely little gem follow.
Is there a way we can get like, the non-commercial May 2021 GameJam Version on here for download, so it's eligible this year for a few misaos?
Also can you set the 1,3 version as primary download? Otherwise I won't be able to review it like UPRC did! ;)

I can definitely upload it, but the game jam version is a significantly different experience than the full version so I'm not sure it seems right to submit that to act as the full version!

I think it's already set to v.1.3 but if there's something else I'm supposed to do just let me know and I can make it happen. :)

Uhmmmm I dunno how it works since I never uploaded a game in my life (LOL) but I see the grey dowload button missing and the review greyed out... I guess it should be set as "primary" dowload... well so they told me! ^^'

You're correct! I've set it as the main download :)
Thank you so much for your help!!
I played the Game Jam Edition and it was pretty good. I liked how neat it was. Other than Helen's Mysterious Castle, it also reminded me of Ib with the mimic. The portrait scene reminded me slightly of Ib too later. ( after I redid it along with fighting the mimic, as I wanted to see if those enemies do any damage at all.) One battle was too challenging (the lone skeleton one) with how OP its paralyze was. The very first battle was decent. The rest were basically one-shotted, and did no damage when defending, which was a bit disappointing esp. at the very end of the game. I suppose it was to make the player look forward to the full version. I did get frightened during the part with the jumpscares, I wasn't expecting it to start like that. I got used to it once I saw the second one coming, though every time I repeated that part (because the 'Full version coming soon :)' part of credit was too fast to read, although I guessed that's what was written. I just wanted to confirm in case.) I got a similar fright, which is something.
But yeah, was neat as expected.

Hey Raiem, thank you so much for the feedback! The game jam edition was basically an outline for what the full version has become, but really I think that project was over-scoped for a week long game jam. That's why a lot of the fights and content was only a quarter of the way there.

I'm thankful that you could check it out and enjoy it and I hope you'll consider picking up the full version sometime. Really appreciate it :)
Wishlisted! This looks cool. Just waiting on a steam sale at this point.
