Teoria en español


The short horror game should be on the top of the popular list. It was incredible. I love the work. So many small details to explore and the scares and atmosphere were great! The end was super intense and that made the game perfect. We can't expect more from small developers and shorts games. Let me know when you have more project coming up!

Thank you so much for the kind words <3 Will do!

Hey Svinkersvon, I really like your game concept, will you be bringing Around the Bend to Mobile Platforms in the Future?

I have no idea to be honest. I would need to learn how first, but who knows, maybe someday i will!

i understand, thanks for reply 😊

This scared the heck out of me.
I was absolutely terrified of what could happen next!

That is good to hear! Thanks for playing <3

The game's decent for your first serious game. I would really crank the volume up on the voice actors so you can hear what they are saying. Other then that, not bad. Also ... TATICAL NUKE INCOMING!
