If only this had a checkpoint before the big Krampus chase.... Everything leading up to that point is stellar, but hot damn is is frustrating having to repeat the opening 10 minutes to get back to where you died...


Lack of checkpoints made me give up after 5+ deaths, there should at least be one after you get to the "other side of the house" maze.


Hey there, I appreciate the feedback.

There's a planned update which will include generous checkpoints & a few other quality-of-life improvements (like making the coat rack simpler to deal with, etc).

If you've claimed the game, I think you'll be automatically notified when the project is updated. 👍



Cool, thanks for the reply, I enjoy the game otherwise btw, just to give some positivity. Especially like the lo-fi artstyle, reminds a bit of Faith. Glad to hear the coat rack will be improved too, that definitely cost me a lot of health whilst trying to rush through the early parts a number of times.


Haven't played this but I absolutely love the art style, DONT change it :)


Thank you! I promise not to change it :) lol
