Thank you for making this.
I found this game really inspiring, thank you for the expirience. I love the bottle measseges, I wish they were found with more frequency, becouse I found like 3 in the first 4 scenes and then I had to feel alone for the rest of the game :,( But really awesome idea, I also love the art style. keep up the good work!
Such a nice game.
Could have used a reminder to press E to pick up bottles. I know it told me how to press E to pick up my boat, but I forgot the key pretty fast
I was the 6th and now it feel lonely, but i'm happy to made it.
Explore newly formed oceans with nothing but the lost notes of fellow travellers to keep you company...
A quiet explorative experience by 'Awkward Silence Games; 'The Things We Lost in the Flood' mixes an unsettling tranquility and mesmerising ambient soundtrack with a quirky multiplayer mechanic to amplify the feeling of loneliness that you experience.
The pinnacle of this game for me was the feeling of seeing a bottle float from offscreen as it gently bobs along towards you with the rain falling down. With no-one around I desperately paddled towards it for a morsel of human interaction. An interaction that you can share back into the world. Or destroy forever.
That feeling of hope and hopelessness is expertly delivered; and is not a feeling I will quickly forget.
Amazing, emotional and atmospheric !
This is really good. I wish that I could donate.
