Thank you so much for playing through the project! We're glad you enjoyed it overall! Certain aspects of the game need more work, like we've mentioned this was developed in just 9 months and it was a student project, so, with no prior knowledge of... anything, we learned as we went and this is the result.
A really unique and stunning game depicting south Slavic mythology and folklore, whilst not being familiar with these myths, it was interesting to learn all about them and explore the dark and twisted world.
The game has wonderful level designs with detailed environments that pull you into the universe , the further you go the creepier and the darker things seem to become.
The sound track matches the game really well with very sombre and desolate tones that help contribute to the immersive experience.
There was one point where a glitch/bug happened where if you accidentally read the stone while attacking the demons you become unable to move and the demons just stand there (around 8 min. 45 sec. into the video) but this was quickly rectified by restarting the level, so a very minor issue.
Overall a really great experience and certainly a very unique game in its genre, it is certainly a very interesting playthrough and thoroughly enjoyable.
Thank you very much, you're very kind! And a BIG thank you for reading the lore and for letting us know about the bug, this is why game testing is so important! We're currently working on an update which will (hopefully) fix some bugs, game optimisation, and it will add more to the game. :)
Thank you! We worked really hard on the atmosphere and sounds played a big part in that :) We don't really have an OST, we bought some music from purpleplanet and motionarray, and some we made by layering tracks and editing them :)
We also appreciate the custom thumbnail you made for YouTube! :)
A big hug from BritSlav Games! :)
Please do exuse my lack of skills in fighting, but I do love the little story parts and would love to SEA what the full game will bring to the table. Or a shore :D
P.S. Hello from Ukraine :D

Are you Serbian? If you are then I'm so effin happy, about damn time we develop video games too. I have to play this, I'll share it with you in a day or two. See ya!
Ja sam taj Srbin, ovaj Srpkinja, moj partner je Englez i imali smo pomoć od strane mog druga programera, koji je takođe Srbin. Glavna inspiracija je sprska mitologija, najviše sam čitala Prognana bića. Plan nam je da počnemo sve ispočetka i napravimo mnogo veću igru sa istom pričom, kada budemo imali sredstava. Hvala puno na interesovanju! :)
Cheers & Živeli :)
I love the world building and how you used the Slavic myths to induce the sense of awe and tension. Nice job.

This game's really cool. I dig it. Great job! That last enemy is so relentless though. I died so many times before I finally tricked it and pummeled it to death. Still a lot of fun though. Thanks!
