A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

(This game is currently in development.)

One day most of the world's population mysteriously disappeared. What few humans are left form small close-knit groups and create settlements that they surround with barricades to close themselves off from the rest of the world. People have become untrusting of others and don't dare to journey outside their own settlements. They say people who do go mad and no one is sure why.

You play as someone who has been exiled from their settlement. Worried the isolation might make them go insane as the rumors suggest, they journey out to find other humans before it's too late.

If you play the demo, please consider filling out a short 10 question feedback survey to help us improve the game going forward: Survey Link

Using a laptop and touch pad, I found movement and control difficult while using the W key to move forward and the touch pad to change directions.  This behavior was much more smooth when using the Up Arrow key and the mouse pad.  Not sure what the differences are between the two inputs.

I had to exit the game and re-enter to find the key binding instructions again (forgot that needed to push "E").  This should probably be in the menu options when you hit Esc.

The down arrow would have the player turn when I almost always intended for him to walk backwards.
