Really enjoyed playing the game! There were a few bugs/glitches but it didn't hold me back on progressing. Love it!

Thanks a lot for having taken the time to play at By the Lake, it was a real pleasure to watch your video and your reactions. 
We hope you had a good time ! :)


Not a bad game considering the size of your team and the short time you had to assemble it! I ran into what looked like some bugs, weird load times and some optimization issues, but nothing that was game breaking. Great work!

Thanks a lot for having taken the time to play at By the Lake, I really enjoyed seeing you play at our game. Furthermore, your feedback motivates us to continue to polish it ! Thanks again :)
