My friend and I had such a ball playing this together. I really appreciated the freedom the game gives you to creep around the house, (I even fought my way into the house at a couple times where I don't think you were supposed to XD). It was a really fun story! 

Thanks so much, glad you two enjoyed it! :)

Hi, haven't played yet, just wondering if there's a way to rebind keys ? AZERTY here...

Hi, unfortunately there isn't, but thank you for asking, that's a feature I'll take into account for future releases.

The first day Rosalinde was there I managed to sneak in behind her and snoop around. But the door shut behind me and I got locked in. I thought it was a trap but I had to restart the delivery to continue haha. That's what you get for being nosy. 

This is a fun little game though, with a clever premise! But my favorite part is that painting on the wall with the ghosts, and how if you look through the glass door after a delivery, Callum is just standing in there in the dark perfectly still. Maybe unintentional but definitely creepy.

Thanks! Glad you liked it, and could appreciate the details, intentional or not ha

Day 11 when Callum is behind me after I ring the bell (when Rosalinde drives away) instead of going up the stairs to the house he just... phases through the stairs and the door opens by itself and then closes. He can't be seen inside, either. So yea. He just clipped through everything instead of going up.

Oh weird! That used to work. I’ll look into it.

I played through a second time. That time I met him over near the carport and he walked to the stairs and then up them normally. Might have been a one-off bug. I'm not sure, I haven't done a third play, yet.

Oh that’s really helpful, it might be a flag that only gets set if you talk to Callum, I’ll check that out, thanks!

Another really nicely done game, Hedgefield. Very tense and atmospheric, neat stuff.

I chickened out and escaped with Roselinde. XD Nuh huh, ain't no way I'm going in that cellar. I don't even like my OWN cellar.

(+1)

Haha, good choice! Wouldn't want you to have to start avoiding your own cellar.

I really enjoyed this! It played longer than you'd expect for a gamjam type game!


Glad to hear it! And thanks for making a video, that was geat!
