Please, please, please let me know your feedback in the comments below! I'd definitely be interested in adding more polish to the game if it's something people would like to see. 


  • I am currently only developing the game if and when I can. I started developing it in my last year of university, however I now have a full-time job which means I can't spend as much time as I used to on the game.  I'm still committed to finishing it though! 
  • There's a few places you can get out of the path boundaries and run around on top of the trenches, I know of 2 places so far! Let me know if you find more :P
  • I'm looking for any voice artists with a good French accent who would be interested in narrating parts of the diary. Just pop me a message if you're interested.
  • There are a couple of spelling mistakes which also need to be amended and will be addressed soon.

Opening Soundtrack: Gehenna - Thomas Newman
