It’s a very horror-like artsy walking simulator kind of game. Some of the visuals are a bit much with all the flashing. Made me have to close my eyes at one point. The game is short though and there were some cool visuals. I enjoyed it.

Waters, in a lengthy conversation with Bell by phone, talked about a mysterious hole in the ground on his rural property about nine miles west of Ellensburg. Federal government agents seized the land with no explanation as to whether the hole was a dangerous threat or important to national security or both. Waters said the cover story the government gave was that it was the old site of a downed aircraft. […] Waters said the hole had paranormal properties, despite the fact locals dumped their garbage there for years. He said a rural resident tossed his dead dog into the hole only to see it later alive outdoors with a hunter. The dog wouldn’t come to him.

Holey space, or more accurately ()hole complex (connoting a degenerate wholeness), speeds up and triggers a particular subversion in solid bodies such as earth. It unfolds holes as ambiguous entities – oscillating between surface and depth – within solid matrices, fundamentally corrupting the latter’s consolidation and wholeness through perforations and terminal porosities. For a solid body, the vermiculation of holes undermines the coherency between the circumferential surfaces and its solidity. The process of degenerating a solid body by corrupting the coherency of its surface is called ungrounding. In other words, the process of ungrounding degenerates the whole into an endless hollow body – irreducible to nothingness – and damages the coherency between the surfaces and the solid body itself.

Very odd game for sure
Thank you for trying this short experience. There are a few more things hidden in here and there, mostly additional visual disruption.
Another splendid game! Keep it up, mate!
Can't wait to play this, your last game was pretty good
I love the game and your visual style is so cool can't wait to see what you do next! :D
