I was in total love with the sounds and the atmosphere! I think there is a glitch where you can get softlocked when looking at the wedding ring with absolutely nothing happening, but that aside was it wonderful for a short game, great job Hax! ^^

I don't think I've walked this stretch of road before is a mashup of homespun 3D design, pulsating electronic sounds, and my desire to tell humanizing stories about people struggling to make sense of pain. It was built haltingly over about a year and a half using some tools I know well & others I barely understand.
I was inspired throughout by the small but resilient community of people using Gamemaker: Studio for 3D development. Like any commercial framework, GM:S has its caveats, but I appreciate its primordial, open-ended toolset, and I hope this game can be a small but interesting contribution to the scene.
More than anything, I hope it weirds you out for a little while, and maybe offers a bit of respite from grimly uncertain times.
Steam release also available.

Do you happen to know if this works on updated Macs? (AKA does it run on 64 bits?)
Hey! Yeah, it's "notarized" through Apple, so it should run fine on all recent OSes/hardware.
A sublime dream that beckons to you from the edge of reality. Turn the sound up.
