This entry captured the middle-of-nowhere atmosphere really well. It made me feel unsafe and far from home. I think that speaks a lot to the music and visuals. The town felt alive and populated with some well-done characters.
Super fun game! The game play is super addictive and the story-line is great too. The music and sound worked really well with the game and the game itself was at a nice level of difficulty. Couple of bugs I spotted, I was able to pick up the ledger at the farmhouse twice (I went back there hoping for more demon heads) and there were times where my hearts didn't change even after I was hit. Overall, an amazing game, I'd say my favourite in the jam because it feels so polished and is just an enjoyable experience from start to end.
