Just wanted to share something with you guys. For those of you who've finished the game, you'll recognize where this guy's from. I've imagined creating entire games about the other lands outside Lamia but for now it's just concept art.

Game on Sale

Hey guys, once again thank you for following the game! Wanted to let everyone know the game's on sale for 50% so would be awesome if you spread the word

Also wanted to beg the community for some more reviews

I'm greatly appreciative of Steams review system and understand the positive side of negative reviews. The players who have given my game negative reviews however don't seem to invest very much energy toward trying to understand the game from a constructive perspective. I say this because the bulk of negative reviews seem to be less than a paragraph and site very little details about the games purpose or comparison in its genre.

I'm not saying remove those reviews, just hoping someone out there understands where I'm coming from and can help me stand up against it with some positiveness

“Later levels add more sophisticated nuance to the core concept therefore keep things fresh, and for every dozen (at least) blood-boiling, keyboard-smashing, expletive-enticing fail, the joy of that one single sliver of success somehow makes the stress worth it.”

“I feel that this is one of those games that are just as much an experience as a game, and one you should experience for yourself.”
downright gaming

“The visuals and sound together create this strange mood that opens you up to discovering storybook worlds, but also hints at hidden dangers within.”

About This Game

Imagine you're 8 years old and you have a little sister who's 6. You wake up one morning to discover your bedroom has been transported to a strange world. Odd looking plants have grown through the floor while you slept and an unsettling fog surrounds you. Outside you see a complicated path, and massive creatures made of stone. A feeling strikes you, you have read about this place many times. You rush to your bookshelf and pull down a book called The Land Of Lamia. You quickly turn to the chapter that describes where you're at and start looking for clues about how to survive.

Each new level has a new picture and description of the world from the book of Lamia. Use the book to learn about the world and solve the puzzles. Control the characters Lily and Thomas using a unique control system. Learn about why you're there and what eerie presence may be watching you.



(Developers note,

The Land Of Lamia is a story driven puzzle adventure game. However, the story revolves around two characters (Lily and Thomas) who you'll be controlling simultaneously with a unique mechanic. As expected, the players who like this mechanic, Love it! and would like it to be harder and emphasized, others find it colorfully frustrating. Eddy Games is very interested in constructive feedback both positive and negative but respectful.)

It was a really cute game with a cool game mechanic of altering between having the boy run and having the girl run. While it was challenging (especially during that stupid maze, screw it all), it was really fun and I loved it. I really enjoyed the puzzles as well.
But... why.
Why did a brother and sister wake up in the middle of 'The Land of Lamia.'
Where were they trying to go.
I did find the ending kind of ominous with the robot's final job being to stop two children from going to a city called... Gile? Whatever it was, and clearly it was talking about these two children, and here they were, trotting along as happy as can be, presumably to that very city. So, I liked that little ominous feel at the end, buuut...
Why.
I don't know anything about these kids except that Lilly likes to shout "THOMAS" when one of them wanders too far away.
It feels very incomplete.
Also, at the beginning of one chapter (2nd one, I believe), in the little picture book, there was an ominous figure in the background of the picture, and the game specifically called attention to that character. BUT WHY. WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHO WAS THAT DUDE, MAN?!
I loved the game. My friend and I played the game together and we both enjoyed playing it.
But as a story... it is lacking very, very much. This might be fine with some other games, but this is a game that relies heavily on a STORYBOOK to solve puzzles and to help the kids... escape? Be free? Go somewhere? It relies on a storybook, but it has no tangible story as of yet that makes me feel anything except confusion.
So... right now... I give this game a positive review as it is a good game.
But if you're looking for a well-composed story...

Just finished this little game, only took about an hour (though it took 4 hrs to get all the cards xD). The concepts are there, and the developer sounds like he has the right idea for making the game, but it feels unfinished. The developer has said he plans on finishing it if he can get the time and/or funds, but at this point it’s more of a demo than a full game. I still enjoyed it and the puzzles were satisfying, I’d say give it a shot if you can get it on sale.

The game just doesn't feel rewarding enough to justify the frustrating controls. Upon finishing a puzzle I'm more apt to say "bleh, glad I don't have to do that again" rather than, "wow, I wonder how I can do that better next time!" In other words, it's not fun at all.

Short puzzle game but not a very good one. There's no audio to speak of, the visuals are boring, and I found the games mechanic of controlling two characters while one is constantly outpacing the other more frustrating than fun. I wouldn't recommend it at any price.

The world is well thought out and designed. I enjoyed the puzzles, although tricky at times, and was always intrigued to find out where I was heading. If you fancy a game with a strong sense of style, unique controls and interesting puzzles then I recommend you give this game a go.

Pros:
Creepy
Moderate Difficulty
Sinister Art Style
Two Character One Player Controlls
Story

Cons:
Snapping Character Movements
Game NOT DONE. Kinda broken

A promising game. The visuals are very nice, and create an intriguing and whimsical world.

Gameplay: In each chapter, you have to explore the level and read the page of a book to find hints and discover how to progress. The enigmas, so far, are well done. I wrote some notes on paper to solve one of them and to find the solution was really satisfying. You also have to move the characters to accomplish certain tasks. The two children always move together, at a different speed. The girl moves faster, but if you press shift, this is the boy who becomes faster. That takes a little patience to control them, particularly in the first chapter where they must walk on a long curvy path, but once we are used to the controls, that's o.k.

I look forward to discover more about this world. At this moment, there are three chapters, with more to come.

Okay so there is a maze in this game where you are a kid with a blue backwards hat. You seem to be guiding some devil girl and if you step off the path, you turn to stone. I haven't figured it out yet but seems interesting.

THIS GAME IS A WORK OF ART!!!

The design style of this game is colorful and playful. The developers put a lot of thought into this.

I won this game in a contest from a Steam group, but if I heard of it before, I would have paid money. I'm snuggled on the loveseat right now and am playing my way through!

Behold! The Land of Lamia!

This is a very intriguing little game and I enjoyed it. Each chapter is filled with a complex puzzle which indeed makes you use your brain bucket. I have to admit that there were two of the chapters I was banging my head against my keyboard due to the difficulty, or so I thought. After reviewing the actual puzzle and my gameplay (I'm a YouTuber for those of you reading this) and came to find it was due to my over thinking thought process. The developer has done an amazing job with the well thought out layout of each chapter and not to mention the mechanics. The mechanics may not be brand new to the gaming world but the way he has implemented into the game is fantastic. The mechanics themselves makes you think of how to solve a puzzle within a puzzle...marinate on that. Controls and camera views can be wonky at times but not enough to turn away from the game. You want a challenge? You want to have good content for a little game? Good, you're in the right place.

Interested in my gameplay of the first chapter? Enjoy! Remeber if you like, like. If you dig what I do and enjoy my videos please, subscribe. If not, thanks for stopping by I appreciate it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsxN95mLbo8

Amazing Indie game! The story is still being developed but the premise is awesome. My favorite part about it is how dark and immersive it is. The music is very well made and adds the the atmosphere. It is very scary and creepy. The games feels like it was made by Tim Burton himself. I am very pleased of the quality and dedication that has gone out to making this game. You guys should definitely try it out! It is like if Tim Burton made Flappy Birds based on the Never Ending Story. Super hard and super addicting!

This game is EXTREMELY short. The camera angles are buggy and the puzzles are not complicated. This does not feel or look like a finished product at all but supposedly it is. Did not care for it at all.

I am still playing this game so maybe something will change but at the moment I don't like the unique movement system. Especially in the first level where if you go off the path you die because all you end up doing is constantly switching between using shift and not using shift and combine that with some slow camera movements and lots of turning and it is just infuriating.

Moving the two characters at the same time is fine but having them move at different speeds does not help at all or offer up unique challenges.

The game is visually nice and when there was sound it was good. The puzzles could be better if you could move a bit quicker as the game moves very slowly at times. Overall I see potential in the game, it definanlty has a good base to build from.
