The menu was nice - minimalist, but gave a good impression. Upon starting, I found out the character moved very slowly, the speed needed to be doubled at least. The text was a bit hard to read, but that's to be expected with a pixel font. Combat was simplistic, but it worked, and was all that could have been expected given the time frame. I liked the music, and thought the donation link on the main menu was quite clever. However, clicking on the "MENU" button took you to the menu, without saving or anything. This is counter-intuitive, as I thought it would contain a "RESUME" button. Unfortunately, I had to start over. The random generation was nice, although there weren't that many different features. I liked how you trailed blood when you were injured. There was no objective, so I was just wondering around, but for the time we had, this was a pretty good game.
Theme use: not that good. Just your basic "well, the main character is alive" attempt - YCD.
I think you got the general experience I was aiming for. I'm glad you liked the details!
Also, I agree clicking menu should have saved, but I found out half way through development that GM won't save data systems so I have to write my own save system. The common complaint seems to be that the game needs an objective; that's understandable.
Thanks for the favorable review and high score

That's one strong unarmed naked man.
Can you heal in this game? Or do you just walk around until your dead?
Could be turned into more for sure, looks like a nice little example of what you can do.
Haha, yeah he'll have armor one day. You can heal, you have to find wells scattered around the map. Some are poisoned, some fully heal you, and others have a chance of both.
I'm glad you see the potential of the game, thanks for playing!

Although equally aimless to RogueLife, I prefer this one because it has a couple of nifty graphical effects, humour and the download link and exit button didn't use an Internet bridge troll to extort money from me.
Only just noticed this comment...I mean really Zeddi, you act like you've never seen an ad on the internet before
