this was a really fun short experience it scared the crap outta me, keep up the good work familia :D

Thanks man!

(+1)

gotta be one of the best atmospheres in horror games imo.

really nice game. had a good time playing it and making theories for it.

y'all did the atmosphere great, it was the best part of the entire game for me. not everyone is able to create this eerie feeling of actually being afraid without seeing anything  yet, specially in the room where the flashlight got very dim and you needed to roam to find the woman. nice touch.

Thank you! I focused purely on trying to create a creepy atmosphere for this game so I'm really glad to hear that!

2 spoopy 4 me

Much spoop!

the game is ok ,but in mac version, when i crouch 3 times in a row i fall of the map and i have to reset the entire game

Interesting find lol! Unfortunately I can't make fixes to the mac build, at least not easily from what I've looked up on how to fix mac build problems, but I'll definitely still see if there's a way. Thanks for letting me know though!

Great game

Thanks!

I am amazed with this game! It was rather short, but the atmosphere was great, I felt like I was being watched the entire time, and the jumpscares paired with everything made this game a blast to play! Excellent job!

Mind you, the video below has two horror games showcased in it, but this is the first game in the video so if you decide to watch it you will not need to skip through! 

Thank you for the opportunity to play such a good game!

Thanks man! I focused purely on just trying to make a creepy atmosphere for this game so I'm glad to hear that!

Great job on the entire atmosphere of this game. The subtle scares paired with larger jumpscares makes for a very fun time in a horror game. Amazing Job.  See the video for full gameplay!

Thanks man! Really enjoyed the video!

(+1)

Great Game!! Spooks we're spot on and was very vague regarding the story but you could picture it out and make your own assumption of what happened which is great for games like this. Truly a very VERY dark game, both game wise and story.. wish it was more longer but all in all great job!! More awesome games to come!!

By the way check out the channel and if you like my content don't be shy and hit that subscribe button for more Horror Content.. PEACE!!

Thanks man! Really enjoyed the video lol!

THIS WAS REALLY GOOD GOT SOME JUMPSCARES OUT OF ME

Thanks man! Glad to hear that lol!

(+1)

Enjoyed the game and the atmosphere was good! Wish it was longer though and had more of a story to it. Apart from that really well done! Will have to check out your other horror game

(+1)

Thanks man! Definitely attempting on making a more full game next!

Really enjoyed this game. The atmosphere was really creepy and the jump scares were bang on! 
Would like to know more about the story line!
Keep up the great work!

Here is my game play below if you fancy watching :)
Have a great day! 


Thank you! Really enjoyed the video lol!

you really nailed the atmosphere on this. certain parts scared the shit out of me, and it was tense the whole time. it's too short to have any solid critiques. It seemed efficient enough in what it was trying tying to accomplish. I would be interested to see what you could do with a horror game that had a more fleshed out story. 

Sorry it this appears random, but I am trying to build up a portfolio for editing game trailers, and I realized your game didn't have one. I took the liberty of making one for you, that you're free to use, if you are at all interested.

Whoa thanks man! That trailer is so sick! Assuming you really are fine with it, I'll definitely use it! Also thanks for the feedback! I'm definitely attempting a more concrete story for my next game. Hope your video editing career goes well!

(+1)

Hey, nice to see you using it, and I am really glad you like it! no problem, and thanks, looking forward to your next projects!

(+1)

The atmosphere of this game had me scared the whole and the jump scares were really good.

Thanks man! Really enjoyed the video!

(+1)

Short but sweet. You'll find some pretty good scares in this game.

Thanks man! Really enjoyed the video!

(+1)

that was a cool idea, please make a longer game. you have the potential to do it, start with it. maybe it will get his and mark, jack or pewds will play i

Thank you! I'm definitely planning on making my next game longer! It would also be insane if any of those guys played my game lol!

Hey! Loved this game, here's a little playthrough I made! So my assumption (probably incorrectly) is that you play someone who took their own life (hence the blood in the kitchen) and was effectively a lost soul wandering around. Am I close? And oh, sorry for getting the name wrong TWICE lmao 


Thanks man! Tbh that's basically the idea I was going for! The blood in the kitchen is a certain event that happened that caused the player to take their own life, which I'll leave to any interpretation since I didn't plan for commiting to an official backstory. I'll definitely be attempting a more concrete story for my next game though lol!

(+1)

Creepy as hell, really good job on the atmosphere element of the game !

Thanks man!

(+1)

Loved the playthrough, Cody! Great work on the atmosphere. I wanted more keys. 

Looking forward to your next release. Hopefully some longer ones :)

Thanks man! Definitely expect it, plus a plethora of keys lol!

Hi there,,

I would like to collaborate with you, on your next projects.

I'm a game writer for various indie studios , and always on the lookout for new challengers.

My role as a writer is to formulate character / narrative driven documents , gaming and character backstories , as well as implementing puzzles and side quests.

 I have also attached a link to my writing samples:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1xH5RN6pRXxMbLMkyhgkzPT3my3g-67Ai?usp=sharing

I too have completed my first kinetic VN - Axiom Alternative. Available for purchase on STEAM, and very soon will be working on another VN project with a different studio, and Axiom Alternative 2 is currently available on STEAM. I'm up for any challenge, and would like the opportunity to show your studio what writing material I can bring to the table.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Regards,

Redewaan

Hey man, thanks for offering to collaborate! There's no doubt your skills would bring a lot of value, but for now I'm just going solo. In September I'll be attending game development classes where I'll definitely be switching gears into a more team-based mindset though. So around then if you're still available maybe we can make something!

(+1)

That will be great. Thank you. Yes, I'll still be around. I too am trying to venture forward into fulltime in the video game industry. All the best to you, Cody. Do keep in contact. Take care.

Хорошая короткая индюшка, со своей задачей справляется!

Thanks man!

(+1)

Hi, i have played this game. It was scary, but i hide my emotions to look like professional gamer) Is this game done? looks like its unfinished.

(+1)

Thanks man! Tbh I didn't put much thought into making it feel like a complete game, but wanted to see if I could just create a creepy atmosphere. So it's technically done, but I plan on making my next game feel like a more finished product.

(+1)

Loved this game, here is my playthrough - enjoy!
(+1)

Thanks man! Really enjoyed the video!

(+1)

I really enjoyed it! It was fun and very scary! I loved how it was mainly build up and that the game didn't rely on jump scares to be scary.

Thanks man!

(+1)

¡Aquí tenéis un Gameplay en Español!

Thanks for checking it out!

(+1)

Great game! Graphics style reminded me a lot to 2004-2005 games (similar to RE4). Lady spooks behaviour was really well designed, too.

(+1)

Thank you! A comparison to RE4 is a major compliment to me lol! 

(+1)

Awesome game! Very scary, will there be more? :D 

Thanks man! Definitely planning on it! 

(+1)

I totally love the graphical style you chose for this game! Very well made. Game here:

Second game play of 3. Subscribe please!

Thanks man!

(+1)

This game is amazing! it got me chills and my sibling too, we screamed so loud tbh lol but i love the game and the quality!

(+1)

Glad to hear that lol! Thanks for checking it out!

(1 edit) (+1)

This game is pretty good! It has my favorite type of jumpscare in it, the atmosphere is pretty creepy, and the monster/ghost is just... hmm scary. I made a video of the game and gave more thought at the end! Good job Cody for the game and Eric for the music! =)

(+1)

Thank you! Really enjoyed the video!

(+1)

This scared the absolute crap out of me! So good! Love the atmosphere and scares! I'm just unsure of the story though. But fantastic game, well done! 

Thanks man! Tbh I kinda made this game to be left to pure interpretation with sort of a backstory that I went with myself, but your interpretation is actually pretty much what I was going for! I'm definitely gonna attempt at a more concrete story for my next game so hopefully I can make that work lol! 

(+1)

You're welcome!! Oh I called it!!! I look forward to the next game!! 

(+1)

Very nice game XD
Greetings from Malaysian!
