I liked it 

[POLL] Hey guys ! You probably know that you pickup items automatically by running over them. Do you want that to be the same in chapter 2 or do you want to press E to pickup? Please reply E or Automatically.

Have a great day!

Cool gameplay but DID YOU JUST CUT OFF HALF OF THE MONSTERS FACE IN THE THUMBNAIL? It looks like my electric toothbrush

yes sorry, because I had problems to screenshot it properly with a lighter background... but if you send me a PNG picture the monster i will be happy to replace it.

Decent little game, need some inprovement, but I believe that is what you will do. I liked the fact that the monster was not oversaturated (as in it was used too much), as the sudden appearence after a lot of actionless gameplay creates a much greater scare, due to the tension created by the wait. Looking forward to the full game. :)
