I'm very interrested in this game, Coz I met a guy in my Village. He was the designer of this game (Still the Game Designer of this Game) and he talked about it and I was immediatly Interrested to play this game. And Yes I'm Dutch too :).

Ik kijk erg uit naar dit project. Een spel met een taal dat geen taal heeft... zeer interessant. wat ik dus net al zij in het Engels dat ik de Designer van dit spel Spel en klein bedrijfje "Grotman Games" heb gesproken en had het over dit spel en dat het op Steam geGreenlight is mits positief erover sprak werd het mij interessanter om het te spelen. De Designer heet Joel Sjouke. Was een leuke ontmoeting en Ik kijk zeer uit naar deze game! Het spel ziet er goed uit en een leuk leerzaam spel. Goed Werk BOYS!

I have a problem when I move out of the cave man says that the cold and more, I can not do what I do as a fix

I'm sorry I'm not sure what you mean. It's not possible to exit the game in this demo so do you mean when you exit the first part of the cave? Can you be more specific about the problem?

??? What u mean?
