Thank you for this short surreal horror game!
You can check my full game playthrough here:
Nice game =)
I found both endings easily, the difference is in the last room. Going up and down have different dialog
This was gorgeous and eerie, thanks for makin' and sharing it!
Uhh...I don't get it
That's okay you're not required to get it. <3
Loved it. Great art. Have to find that second ending.
What, the only endings are go up in eye ball and go down in eye ball. I don't see how their can be another one
Very cool bitsy title! I loved the background art for each of the senses which generally gave the eyeball creature a sort of reaching-tentical-vibes. Some of the font was a bit wonky, the m's and the w's were a bit hard to read. However the music was a fantastic addition that tied the images and the atmosphere together.
I dont understood plot,but i liked music,where can i download this? its really cool
I wonder if anyone else discovered both endings?
Thank you for putting a smile on my face for being the first (iirc) to mention the two endings in this comments section a whole 2 and a half years after release!
Hope you enjoyed!
after seeing this comment i've been trying to find the second ending foreverrr (please tell me it has something to do with the orange room eye thing or else i'm gonna be pretty embarrassed)
Perhaps you should try to refuse your faith.
tbh i forgot, i played this game 97 days ago
i just played it again. once you enter the eye go back out to get the second ending.
I got the
Good to know
He has eyes.
Wow phenomenal artwork! This and the music gave way to such an enticing experience.
superb artwork !
great game <3
Got jump scared by the music and eyeball, and then it only got better from there! Nice!
All of these rooms, the last few especially are really striking.
Managing all the rooms and tiles in this game must have been a chore, if you don't mind me asking how much did you plan this out before you started putting it together?
Really short game but that does not bother me or anyone else I think. The graphics are okay,pixel game lovers like me apprechiate games like this one. The commentary is really great. You have done really amazig job on this game.
Be sure to play it people!
A really wonderful, exquisitely told little story
Such a tiny game, such an impact in so short a time! Great work!
wonderful and captivating
One of the greatest bitsy games i've ever played. The atmosphere and the Old Ones theme make this one real special in every detail of it.
To quote a legendary children's TV character, "I hates eyeballs!" And this game is another fine example of why I too hates 'em!
This is short but sweet(?), and even though there's less than 5 minutes of gameplay (depending on how long you pore over every sentence), it's something that stays with you! Every screen traversed made me feel more uncomfortable until we come to the game's conclusion. And I still feel uncomfortable just thinking about it. Brrr.
For such a tiny game to pack such a big wallop is testament to great writing and great build-up, so a definite tip of the hat from me! Keep up the awesome work =)
this is amazing! impressive I like it a lot
REAL GOOD. There's an interesting inversion of "cosmic" "horror", both in the direction people look to find the unknowable, and the way it makes one feel. The concept of the "sublime" is an originally Romantic term to refer to the feeling of insignificance in the face of something incomprehensibly vast, and imparts both terror and joy but, where many explored the idea of vast lifeforms as an extension of that terror, this is an expression of acceptance, curiosity, and ultimate love (in spite of or even BECAUSE of how alien it is). I like it a lot!!!
haha pretty cool dude
Really well done! The art was beautiful and it was surreal and creepy enough to make an impression. Thanks for making this!
Didn't feel like horror to me. I was perfectly fine with it.
That's okay, it's important to acknowledge that different people are affected differently by different things. I hope you at least enjoyed the experience.
this is amazing! well done.
jeje, muy bueno y corto, ojala hablara ingles
I don't even know what the heck is happening.
But it's cool.
woahh this is cool! super impressive and cReEpy! 👁
Fun 2 minute walk through an odd departure.

Sorry about the audio, My mic was not set correctly and it sounds muffled.
follow me on twitch and twitter for notifications. Bring games you love and/or you make for me to play!
This might be short, but man is it something else. It's incredible how you made such a dreary atmosphere with minimal graphics like this.
Gorgeous art!! The visual atmosphere is incredible.
I'm more confused than anything. It could have been creepy with a bit more context; this was just odd without any.
This is short, creepy, and interesting. It has fitting music, art, and mood even for such a short experience. That's really good!
Wow! I love the art done on the game! And as an creepiness enthusiast I loved the eerie vibe to the whole experience!
This is so gorgeous and creepy! The fact that you have to propel yourself forward to continue the story puts you, the player, in the same position as the character - of being enticed toward some other-worldly doom.
