Development information

  • Solo project

Lessons learned:

  • Dont use technical terms like "respawn" but instead use lore names like "shadow" for tags etc. to feel a connection to the game while developing it

I really liked the audio and it being a 3d game. The gameplay maybe wasn't that interesting, but the ending left me curious. Good job!
