Deciphering those pages at the end was so hard. I'm glad I did, though...

.............oh my god. i really wrote that huh

Also, you used the same symbol for L and I, had no clear letter separators (deciphering 'ARMAGED', specifically 'RM', was very tricky), and cut off words at the end of lines. Credit where it's due, you did put spaces between words, but I feel like transcribing those would have made it lose its feel.

Somehow glad to be the chosen one

it is a great honor

Oooo! Very haunting!

thanks for playin' :)

Really nicely done, and very ominous.

thank you!!

this is so good!!! the music and the daily headlines were perfect and so was the  color scheme!! the art was also so well done i'm in awe with the gradients and the different rooms and the way lights and shadows are shown! also the sprites that were placed throughout the rooms were very helpful in telling me how to proceed / navigate the game !
