Chapter One: A grandpa tells a story from his youth to his curious grandson, a story about La Cegua, a ghostly figure of a beautiful woman with the head of a horse that chases the terrified man through a labyrinthic rendition of the city of San Jose (capital of Costa Rica) in the pitch black darkness of night.

This is a Survival Horror topdown 2D game based on the myths and legends from Costa Rica. Solve the labyrinth, keep your oil lamp on and face the fear of darkness and unknown beings. Just try to not go insane from terror.

The game is fine, but the story needs some polishing like adding an ending dialogue and a narrative that could explain the story well. I still enjoy the game.

Here's my gameplay here: 00:00

El juego esta muy bien realizado, excepto por la cegua que está super linda ;D. Solo un par de anotaciones, un mito no es lo mismo que una leyenda, por aquello para cambiar el wording en ese sentido. Lo otro es que kid y grandpa son muy genericos, usen nombres para aumentar la verosimilitud de la situacion, ya en conversacion en la forma en que dirigen uno al otro "gandpa" y "my child" o así queda explicada la relación entre ambos y al darles nombres se refuerza la empatia con la historia.
