The Nothing a work of art! The style is unique and the visuals grow on you. The soundtrack works for the style of the game. A twisted, yet beautiful, permadeath roguelike sidescroller that doesn't side scroll. The retro VHS graphics really put a unique 'old school horror film' spin on it that I haven't seen anywhere else in a game like this. It looks like the rooms are procedurally generated, so no two runs are the same (I'm not sure, but that's how it felt) and I loved that mechanic! It's definitely unique in every way and I'm yet to see another game comparable to this one. MAYBE The Binding of Isaac is a little similar, but there are super major differences.

I'm sorry if I was all over the place with this "mini-review" - I'm exhausted. Thanks for making this! I got it in the bundle for Jane and I loved it! I can’t believe I didn’t hear about this game sooner!

Ah-hah! I've been waiting for your next game for a long while ;O Now comes the painful process of figuring the thing out and figuring out how to get all the endings D:< There's a good deal of feedback I could provide in my videos, namely coin-deposits being tedious (Should be able to hold the button to spam more in, faster!) among other things - Overall, very weird game.

The OST alone is the worth the price of admission <3
