Thanks to all the feedback I had on the first demo released for the 2 minute horror jam, The Salt Order has been improved into a new cool, stylized, and more polished demo.


• A new version of the salt gameplay. No more salt crystals to pick up!

• Xbox Controller support! (Not PSX yet, discovered that I need to re-assign some stuff to make it work for PS4 controller. I'm  looking on how I can fix that properly!)

• A new tutorial area, and a few reworks on the original zone!

• New textures everywhere. And a few new sounds!

• An actual story! And it's only the beginning...

I would LOVE to have a full length game of this! The level design is great and it really makes you pay attention to your salt. This video perfectly captures my level of maturity sometimes. Dick jokes. Dick jokes everywhere...

amazing concept, I knew the watching Supernatural would come in handy one day

😊👍

Cool concept. I hope there's more to come.

hey, super cool game! loved the graphics and audio, I hope you continue working on this game! The salt was a cool idea, would be pretty funny if you can fight the demons with it (like throw some salt at them). Hope you don't mind that I made a small vid. on it!

this was one of the scariest things i've played. omg.

I love the colors and aesthetic. Nice game!

(+1)

ok...looks promising! cant wait to have a full game

Heylooo, I played your game as part of the 2021 Haunted PS1 demo disc and shook my fists at the screen a lot. Good game though! Great atmosphere, captivating aesthetic and the demon trees got me every time

Thank you for playing, and congratulations for finishing it! Weird issue you got with the controller at the start of the game. Did you plug it after starting to play? If so (and if you have the time), could you try starting the game with the controller already plugged in? I would like to see if the spinning bug still occurs.

It was already plugged in as I was using it in the haunted ps1 mueseum 🤷‍♀️

Woops! That's weird. What controller are you using? I'll investigate to see if I can fix that for other players who could have the same issue

I was using a ps4 controller. Good luck fixing it! Its great that youre putting in the time and effort to do so 😊

(+1)

I love the concept of this! It was a whole lot more tense and unnerving than I thought it was going to be as well which was a massive plus!!

Do you consider publishing this game to steam too? 

When the full game is released? Maybe :)

(+1)

Out of the few games I played on the Demo Disc, this one absolutely had my favorite art style. I didn't understand the last cutscene, but I really enjoyed drawing the salt, and the unique rules to exploring the forest safely. :) It's the 1st game I played in the video.

Really loved the gameplay mechanic here! Very good demo! 

(+1)

very good concept and graphics design, but long cutscenes are very annoying

(+1)

Gotta say, this has a great concept and is genuinely creepy. The big groot-looking guys had me spooked several times and I'm in love with the salt drawing mechanic. It's very intuitive and easy to use, and I even had fun finding unique ways to trap enemies. Excellent work!

just saw the salt order on my feed and litterally screamed out of fear !!!!! Great game my friend really scary

WOAW SO SCARY

-Made a Video.

"ngl the game is good, but this is actually pretty hard to complete."

This game is amazing! I love the creepy atmosphere. I was wondering what programs did you use to create such a unique game?

Hi, thank you very much! This game is made on Unity 2019 .1 (I upgraded it  to 2019.3 since though)

(+1)

This has to be one of the best and most unique ideas I've seen in a long time! Can't wait to play the full game! Featured first in the video!

(+1)

Really good game. Definitely one of the harder games ive played. I just wish the salt didnt go down that fast but i BARELY made it to the door with the 4th bell going off! Nice game!


Game starts @25:55

The game is definitely well done. Though I wish the monster didn't spawn right on top of you even if you hear them. That and the salt just don't last long if you draw a full line. But that might be me. Nice job.

Through raw tenacity I finished the game - clawing my way through. It didn't help that you dish out salt like Oprah, you get salt and you get salt and you get salt. Times are tough, ration a little y'know???? Critique~ 12:36


Was a ton of fun to play, effectively spooky retro aesthetic and the salt circles or lines were a really cool mechanic, looking forward to future projects.

this game was amazing i would've completed it if i didnt panic a lot

but hey it was pretty fun for me and my content let me know what to improve

why you hide video ? 

(+1)

This game is pretty darn polished for a 16 day build, love the retro graphics look and the game mechanics is relatively solid, only thing is I am stumped where the key is (assuming there is one) and ultimately what the use of the salt was as there is never enough. Otherwise great game!

You still did great! Salt can be used to draw lines in the path between beasts and you. It won't protect you for long but it gives you enough time to look in front of you without being attacked in the back. I'm still thinking of ways to make it more clear, as many players seem to have the same issues. Thank you very much for your feedback!

(+1)

This game is such a great idea, the salt thing that I keep calling chalk lol is a very original thing, reminds me of Supernatural the TV show..

Here is my gameplay, even tho I couldnt finish the game, it is VERY difficult!

(+1)

Pour les Francophones !
(+1)

Oh, man. I haven't played. I should like it

(+1)

This game was the first game I played and it scared me sooo bad that I couldn't finish, but I am 200% coming back on here to do a part 2 to this. This game was really well made👍.

Thank you very much! I hope you'll beat it next time :)

(+1)

This game is really up there with the "Puppet Combo Standard". I'm sorry, there's no other way to say it. I'm a mac user, and although everything ran smoothly, I could't draw the salt nor interact with objects, and I couldn't die. But really great game overall. Can't wait for the full version!

(1 edit)

Thank you for your feedback! Also nope don't worry, I don't take "Puppet Combo Standard" as an offense. It's actually quite the contrary! Considering what actions you can't do, i might have an idea on what caused that. I'll take a look!

Le truc génial c'est que même si on déploie un environnement où ses composantes graphiques et sonores sont sommaires, l'imagination viendra combler le reste et amplifier les émotions perçues. En l’occurrence ici, pas besoin de HD, le jeu se suffit à lui même pour assurer le genre dans lequel il s'inscrit.

Bien joué :D

Great game, but defiantly tough to beet. Took me a while, but great job. Hope you enjoy the video!

(Sorry, I had to re-upload the video after some issues.)

(+1)

This game is pretty hard. I guess I should've watched that video before I played. But I also feel like their salt lasted waaay longer than mine. They threw down line after line and I barely had enough for a circle at times. The last attempt in my video is the farthest I got. Pretty tough, but still fun and creepy.

Thanks for your feedback. You still did great! But yeah, circles are rarely useful. Drawing lines between you and them along the path is the best solution to survive. I'm currently thinking of some ways to make it more clear, and I'll possibly add an easy mode. Thank you for playing :D

Is the game finished and needs no more updates?

Hi! No more content will be added for now yes. Only updates for balancing, ergonomy & bug fixes :)
