Hi. I played twice, and twice I got stuck at the chess players. No party for me. Is it the end of part 1? I see screenshots here that I haven't seen in the game

heyo, sorry about that — the game is still incomplete, and I've only released content up to the chess scene. the full game will be released soon-ish!

great trailer, looking forward to it
