  • "It’s the look that immediately draws me into Creature In The Well. The hard, clear shading on the environment allows them to pull off tricks like the well itself being a void of absolute blackness, punctuated only by the hands and glowing eyes of the titular Creature."
    - Dominic Tarason, Rock, Paper, Shotgun
  • "The full game will launch with eight dungeons. If they’re anything like my short demo experience, they’ll be a blast to explore."
    - Mike Minotti, VentureBeat
  • "What intrigued me most about Creature in the Well was the way it utilizes puzzles and branching paths. [...] If you opt to tough it out and solve the puzzle, you’ll be rewarded with access to a new weapon, or upgrade. It’s super compelling and encouraged me to see puzzles through more than once."
    - Zachary Ryan, IGN
