I love the art style, sounds and general feel. I admire your vision.
I also feel the game is a little too slow-paced at the moment - especially during the tutorial texts. Also it's not really clear what to do when the game starts. Maybe some more resources to the player or some more tips where you can find The Hermit? I think I understand the experience you are trying to achieve, but it's not quite there yet.
All in all, really cool project! I am going to vote you right now. Good luck and I hope you get to Steam!
