got stuck right beside the chef



What's with the red house? I can't get into it.

this was fun. short but sweet


man, why I can entry in the house with red glow light in the corner of the church?

What is in there ?


Is this game incomplete? I have gotten to "eradicate demon" part and have visited all the areas that I could. The last area I got into was the one with the boarded up mines.

Thanks for playing! The game can be completed, I'm guessing you missed something.


Hm, I'll try again! I actually just remembered I could not access the house with the red lights behind the church. 


Okay, I finally figured it out after watching a walkthrough. It was confusing/difficult because it was not clear that you had to shoot a specific spot of the mine to enter, but other than that good game! :)

Shoot with what though? Are you mean to get a weapon somewhere?


I enjoyed this! Thank you for the inspiration.

Awesome engine!


this game is thematically confusing

Very cool game. Very funny.

Very cool little game

Thanks for the video! You can enter the mine with the weapon you get during the first boss fight.

The music was written by Robin Dussart and Dimitri Guindet. I don't know that they do tutorials...

I'm geting some render bug.

Some GPU drivers seem to have issues with the various shaders on Linux and OS X. Are you running one of those? Try updating the drivers if possible.

I'm using Manjaro Linux with intel GPU. I will update my GPU driver and test again.


Génial ^^.

gameplay sympa, personnages amusant, easter egg, reference, histoire rapide et amusante.


Great Presentation.


The musics are really cool ! They didn't sound so epic during the Sunday presentation :)
