Hey guys, I'm back. I made a review in spanish about this awesome game: https://retroorama.blogspot.com/2019/05/indie-review-timothy-and-mysterious.html

Keep doing the good work :)

Thank you very much for loving our game :) we are happy! :P

Hard and unforgiving just like you said in the description. I love the GameBoy-like aesthetics of this game, but I can't keep dying forever... Awesome game.

Thank you very much for your comment! We are currently at work to balance difficulty perfectly: keeping a very hard challenge but with some "spaces to relieve" would be perfect :)

was a good game.
liked the different endings.
only the traps were annoying. and I just couldnt stop laughing when finding the crescendo :-D


Thank you very much! Prepare for new adventures anyway: we will publish soon the new demo with A LOT of new features! Grab & Throw combat system, stealth system, upgraded graphics and a lot of new features!

hey, I am confused. at the swamp witch, one of the correct answers is II but choosing the second chest results inf ailure. Why? O_O


Actually it was another :P but i see you managed to get to the end anyway!

maybe another but surely not the one from the answers :-D

If you mean the mandrake one, it's actually a root :P so the correct answer is 1

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the place to report bugs but when interacting with the chest that gives the message "login on Indieexpo to get 500 xp" the player gets stuck on a message loop. The text box never disappears and the player is stuck reading the message forever with no way to move away from the chest.

Hey there! Yes it's the right place to report everything to us :D thank you for your feedback Eldirish! We will fix that ASAP! Hope you're enjoying the game!
