Tried out the game some time back. Real confusing, but I liked it.


Hi there, I played your game on my channel, and it was really enjoyable!

It's a very fitting game for current times, and it's quite easy to imagine that someone would do something like this, and it's interesting to be put in the shoes of the person doing it.

I look forward to the other two releases coming out in this trilogy! Great job!

Here's my playthrough for anyone interested:

It's certainly interesting. The concept plays off real world horrors more than most horror games, but it comes off as kind of abstract. Somewhat fitting for the main character's psyche.

Thank you for the key.


Led a Long Way Down is a very different sort of game, with elements not explored in games very often, if at all. That’s much appreciated, as it’s very easy for genre games to copy the same formula over and over. At first I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to do, but part of the fun was discovering it on my own. The longer I played, the more the story came together. Led a Long Way Down has a stylish charm to it, and it’s worth playing more than once. Well worth the price of admission!
