The Dark Within

Hey guys!

My newest game The Dark Within is now on Greenlight!
I would really appreciate if you could check it out!

If you liked any of my previous games I think you might enjoy this one too!

P.S To those who are interested in Bacon Rebellion, the game has not been cancelled, I am still working on it, and it's not far from finished. The Dark Within, is just a smaller side-project I worked on!

Thank you,
