Damn, now I want a VR set. Did you consider making a non VR version of this game as well, Pompi!? Thanks for the update and great work with the trailer!

I asked this question on the first page. Maybe check there for an answer...

Pompi you can reduce file size of the demo a bit by not shipping it with this folder: "Burial Stone_BackUpThisFolder_ButDontShipItWithYourGame", just sayin'.

Some feedback (playing without VR headset):
- the graphics are great
- sound effects are nice
- rotation is a bit clunky (i have to click a/d, two times just to rotate by 90 degrees), also if you can rotate diagonally, why not let me also move diagonally?
- cannot close equipment & abilities screen by pressing ESC but I can close inventory this way
- tooltips are unreadable:

I have looked at the first post... and it feels odd. Only 4 months deving? I feel like it's been a year of deving or something lol.

Eventhough this game is only 5 levels, it still takes a lot of time
I quite finished the first 4 levels in terms of balance and level design.
I have quite some work on the fifth and last level.
I have added a lot of SFX and sounds.
I need to add more skills and spells.

The date I arbitrarily picked for release on Steam is May 31.
I hope I will be able to release by then.

Here is another fun little video I made, of how the player character looks from the POV of the monster:

Burial Stone now accept Beta requests.
You can now request a Beta build from Steam.
I am intending to release a build today, so hopefully you will be able to request before I released, because I can only unlock it to the people who already requested.

This weekend is busy with Jewish Holiday so I won't be able to update until at least Sunday.

Since you're making a VR game, I would leverage what vr brings to the table more. put in some bridges over deep pits. put in some high ceilings in big rooms. scope and scale are your friends in vr.
