Haha a much thumbs in this. My personal goal each round was to sprint as far as I could. Main criticism would be that the sound was a little abrasive. Also the fire drones flames were at first a little unidentifiable, I did figure it out though so maybe not a huge deal. Anyway, good job creating this terrifying world.
