Story of the Mirror

This is a short horror game that I developed for DarkTober Game Jam 2018 using the Pico-8 fantasy console. This game is not suited for children or those who are easily disturbed.

Controls:

- Directional keys: move around

- Z: read stone tablets, talk to npc's

Objective:

The objective of this game is to find the old mirror, locate the dark path and get the orbs of light. This will require navigating 3 different worlds of increasing tension and horror.

Tips:

- Enemies will spawn in the dark world. The more orbs of light you collect, the more enemies will try to drag you to a shadowy grave, trapping you within the darkness of the mirror forever.
