hi, i think The Consuming Shadow looks fantastic. I love horror games. Now i´m finishing the working in other game and it would be great to cooperate with such a promising team. I think my work could fit perfectly in your project. You could listen my music here: Could we talk about it? my email is: Thank you.

Yahtzee, do you guys need music for this game? I hate to be the douche that comments on multiple greenlight pages, but I'm a huge fan of both zero punctuation and Mogworld, and I feel like this game would benefit from some music, even if it was minimalistic. A game I did the entire soundtrack for recently got on steam if you want a reference.

I also know you guys already technically released this on other platforms, but maybe the steam version could have some subtle music going on. Let me know if I don't sound like an ass.

I don't get the newgrounds graphics complaint i'd say it's functional and that's all i needs to be i think the actual mechanics outshine graphical fidelity.
