Are there any plans to bring the full version to Itch.io ?

I have been playing I believe the Demo 2 build and I am really loving it. Great job so far guys!

Looks good.

Looks like the Alpha was taken down in preparation for an updated version, but this was mentioned in a post from June. More details on ModDB.

Bummed out all the downloads aren't working, this looks really interesting and I was thinking of making a Lumps Play.

The download isn't working. It says ”The download should start momentarily.” but it never does.

Download not working :(

Could you update it?

File has been removed from the download source. Any reason why?

Can't get the download to launch.

hmm, it should definitely be possible - it's an MSI file. if your windows comes up with a message, you can press "more settings" and allow the MSI file. Basically, we have not yet had Windows to offically verify the file, which is why there probably is a message from microsoft.

Ok I'll give it another try today. Looks great. I'm looking forward to trying it!


I was having the same issues today, the problem was i have a pop up blocker on chrome which was preventing the pop up necessary to download, disable or allow the file in pop up blocker and youll be sound :) stunning looking game!

Thanks for the solution and the feedback! We are currently revising most of the game, making it a lot more content-dense and stunning looking. Also, with a bit more tutorial and guidance to players that get lost :)

No problem :) Looking forward to it! its weird that its not a horror game (i dont think so far anyway) but it still makes me tense! done a really good job with the atmosphere in this game and the lighting effect is stunning, stood watching the sky for 20 minutes! haha


Amazing work!

Interesting story, gorgeous graphics and a mysterious forest... the perfect combination, I love it!

Good luck with the project!
