Entry for Ludum Dare 46 - Keep It Alive

A gothic horror stealth game with full voiceover.

The year is 1854, London is struck with disaster. You are Constance, mad with grief for your husband. But love transcends the merely physical, and you will not give up on him. Scour the city for fresh corpses, and hopefully you can house your husband’s soul in a new vessel. For true love knows no bounds - ethical or otherwise.

Trigger warning: Pixel art gore / surgery on dead bodies (no jumpscares)

Looks extremely cool, but I can't get past the first screen. None of the controls do anything--for reference, I'm on chrome.

The intro sequence is unskippable unfortunately x_x you just have to wait till it ends.

You might have to reload the tab if it takes more than two minutes.

This game looks great but the controls aren't working for me ;_;  I can move around but that's pretty much the only thing I can do. The problem is probably my computer but I hope I'll be able to play this game someday.

This was amazing. Very creative, brilliantly executed, and with a great atmosphere (thanks to the voice acting). I wish you could do something with the bothering neighbors... Just dragging and waiting feels a little empty.
Still, congratulations on a great game.

Pros and cons are down below) Check out my vid here (the game is the 1st there):

Advantages:

1. Very cool art style and animation. I very much like the atmosphere that has been created and the environment. It's very pleasing to look at.

2. The voice acting is top hole! I enjoyed so much listening to the main characters! I didn't expect that)

3. The concept is original. I haven't seen something like that before. I think it's really valuable to come up with something simple yet original.

Disadvantages:

1. The people are annoying. Though, they serve the game's concept. It's just they like to hang around Constance so much, I though I would not be able to finish the game (I finished it btw and at the end I admired the challenge).

2. I thinks it's rather strange that people are falling asleep standing at the random period of time.  Maybe the game could benefit from a different animation (like a newspaper in the hand. They are so into reading it so they don't notice anything else, for example).

Overall:

I think that this game is new and very interesting. I would like to see different levels or a more complicated bigger project out of this one. Maybe you could add different types of enemies like dogs from which you have to hide in the barrel or something like that. I mean, the game is marvelous, it can become something bigger! 5/5

Hope my feedback was useful!
