It was awesome to travel around the world of the Dark Crystal again. Thanks for a fun ride, Marion. I was sad to see it end.

Lovely game.  I appreciated the pathos you generated for the Skeksis.  Nicely foreshadows the film.

The Dark Crystal is also one of my all time favorite movies! When you first presented this I was super excited but had no idea it would be released so quickly, a pleasant surprise indeed! Great job Marion :)

OMG Marion!

This game is outstanding!

Really well done, but, being an amateur comics-maker.. I'm speechless for the graphics! Speechless!
Sorry I'm speechless, I can't say more.
:D

Might make time to play this... after watching the movie again. Saw it year ago.  Not sure if my 4 year-old will like it (time to find out!)

Congrats on the release, it looks really great.

Hi again :)
A Dark Crystal fan made great Skeksis comics, and recently did a page inspired by my game :)
I invite you to see her DeviantArt gallery to see more, they are very fun and well done !!

Pros:
The hand made graphics are amazing.
I also like the Safety/ Danger thingy.

Nitpick Cons:
I would be a little bit more upset if someone took my wings.
The speech fonts are too classic  / geometric versus the hand made backgrounds

Anyways. Great game, Marion!
