Hey guys!

I recently did part #3 of my "Three horror games one video" on YouTube. 

Ritual Practice was one of them. Check it out if you like horror games from itch.io

Forgot to share when I recorded it, but this game really did resonate with me. I loved the atmosphere and pacing, hope we someday get to see more but will follow for future projects.

Much like the others wish it was longer. Had a really good atmosphere and enjoyed it for what it was!

SKIP TO 4:42!!!

This is a good short little game, I enjoyed it for what it was 😀

It's a great game and I'm echoing what many people said about the duration.It really should be longer.

Here's my channel for other games I have played. http://www.youtube.com/c/Levont

I liked how the map and journal mechanics fleshed out the story and the overal feeling of the game, although I wish it was a little longer. It feels like there should be more story to it and the game ends when you finally get into it, still a very enjoyable experience however.

Hi! Thank you so much for the comment and the video. It's always great to see people enjoying our games and understanding the experience we are trying to convey.

The game was made for a course in game world design, and so our time to make it was limited. The idea was to make a short game that could potentially be a lot bigger. Maybe there will be a full-length version one day to dive deeper into the eerie forest and the mysterious disk. :)

I have updated the info so players better know what to expect. Thanks again for the feedback.

If this ever becomes a full length game I'd love to hear it, the atmosphere was just perfect for the kinds of games that I love to play.
