A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Jack is a guy that met Satan and tricked him into promising to never take his soul


He wasn't good enough for paradise though, so when he died he ended up in purgatory

Death has now brought him back to life to deal with Satan's Halloween Shenanigans, in exchange for a solution to his Eternal Torment

What quality did you pick when launching the game and what system are you running it on?

Hello ! Really nice project, it looks good ! The camera is still pretty annoying tho.

I'd like to talk a bit more about your project, do you have a Discord Server or something like that ?

Hello Hello! Really nice concept with a great background story! The gameplay is really smooth, with a lots of different enemies, which I like a lot! Maybe the map is a bit too big with no proper indication of where we should go. Beside that I enjoyed playing the game and will come back here to see the new update. Keep it up!

Thanks and glad you like it. The map isn't fully fleshed out yet. Once finished it will be filled with enemies and characters if possible. Puzzles as well. Will take a look at the site. Cheers

New video with our thoughts on the update:

Things fixed that were in the video:
- landing
- pushing enemies
- stairs
- increased map size
- falling off the edge
- tree - I think...

Changes:
- weapon swapping with mouse scroll or d-pad
- very brief explanation of what you are doing (collecting souls for Death, they got away)
