This Game was amazing
played DMB when it first came out, and just got around to playing this. another amazing game as always yames
this was awesome!!!!! i loved the ambiance!
the horror and depth in this game is amazing, one of my favorite horror games I've played!
The atmosphere created by your game is stunning, truly great work. The worldbuilding is concise and very effective, a great representation of what lovecraftian-type horrors from the deep feels like.
Along with Ligotti I think your work is one of the only creative responses to Lovecraft that manages to circumvent his racism while maintaining the core of the existential horror - no mean feat! This one gave me a similar sensation to when I played 'The Cosmology of Kyoto' for the first time.
hey thanks! that is really interesting to hear, I love Cosmology of Kyoto so I think it makes sense some of those vibes imprinted on my stuff
Visually and narratively this game is perfect, the terror that the power outages create is way beyond what I was expecting. I think most of the creepiness comes from the connection to religion and biblically accurate angels.
Man I really loved this game! Super unique and interesting horror game, please make more games like this! Love the style, the art is on point, and the pace of gameplay is perfect. I'm a huge fan! Looking forward to more games like this, please make more! Hope you don't mind that I streamed this and made a vid!
I love the visuals of your games!
''Aqua Catholicism''...A scientist who refuses the traditional church and neither gets satisfied with the modern Science and wants to go in his own way...To find the God and its ''Biblicaly Accurate Angels''.Game mechanics are really basic and reminiscent from the Amiga games like Elvira and Darkseed and has a really surreal and psychedelic art style to it.You have refilled your oxygen tank and replenished your nets and now it is time to skim the ocean surface and find some artifact.Lovecraft would have really liked this game if he was alive.
Very unique experience! Need to play more, honestly.
This game has some great atmosphere and lots of mystery. Enough of a thread to pull on, not enough that you have all the answers. A very good and tightly packed 15min!
Heya, I played this recently and it made me feel enlightened and nauseous. I love the terrifying world you built in such a short experience.
very very cool
i am in awe
how to run the game? download only provides a folder without any kind of exe inside (im on windows 10).
hi, i checked out the download links, the one for windows is called
Water Womb World (hotfix).zip 134 MB
it should be the third button from the top and the folder should have a data.win file, options.ini file, and waterwombworld.exe
Absolutely brilliant! You really managed to pack so much atmosphere and story into such a short game. The art style you've created is super unique too! What engine do you use if you don't mind me asking?
Excellent short game! Fully immersive with rich details. Hope to see more games in the future!
man, that was an experience, wow
Distilled dread. Loved it.
Really well done, nice tightly composed experience. Faithful to the cosmic horror genre by setting up the horror, executing it in a way that's internally consistent with its own logic, and leaving you to sit there stewing in the fact that while the fear you just felt makes sense, the THINGS you just saw don't make sense, and never will: such is the 'cosmic' in 'cosmic horror.' The visual and audio context serve as rich dressing for the writing, which is well structured and well paced.
In short, a great case study for showing what a solid cosmic horror game can look like in 15 minutes or less.
i LOVE it this is incredibly done, the art is incredible and better for its distortion. 1000000/10 would feed again
This game is so creepy. It's like being buried alive. Excellent.
This was AMAZING! I went in thinking 'oh, the visuals look cool and I love deep sea-horror' and then it was this absolutely weird, uncanny, freaky experience. This is so gorgeous, Yames, you will definitely see me on your other game pages in the next few weeks because this blew me away and I want more (also, I really hope I wasn't too blasphemous in my playthrough).
The game is just great. Loved the Lovecraftian vibes and the creepy atmosphere.
SO glad this is now available for Mac. I am grateful. Hope this is done for your future games
Really great and interesting game, its atmosphere and story are what really made it for me, and the original and unique concept made me love it even more.
Fantastic, loved every bit of it
This game is an incredibly well conceived concept. The visual is impeccable and incredibly detailed. The story and dialogue is really well executed and the atmosphere is wonderfully engulfing. I have like not a phobia but an uncomfortable fear of the ocean and this is great. The mystery and uncertain experience (or creatures) or what was to expect was well done. :)
I really liked this project! You did such a good job with the atmosphere and creating a sense of isolation on the ocean floor! Ty!
I included this game in my 2 Scary Games and gosh... I should have maybe taken this a bit more seriously but somehow I could not. Still, great game.
I loved this game. The storytelling and the art style of the game is what made this game shine. Some monsters are best left unknown and this was one of them. Great job on this game. Its the last game in the video.
Dude, it's excellent! Pure Lovecraft spirit of the unknowable taken from books and put into a game. Keep on keeping on!
