Fun experience.

Great little game , it was a nice and creepy, the scares are unexpected and the atmosphere is good.The lighting is a little too dark and the direction you are meant to go is not too clear, a narrative or text clue could be a good idea to keep the pace going.

This game was awesome. Some aspects of the story telling could be more defined but I still enjoyed this game. I hope to see more of it in the future. Check it out. 

Thee beginning was slow and confusing, mostly because of the lighting being so dark.  But after I got into it further, this experience was so weird and creepy that I am glad I stuck around.  I have no idea what was going on, but really a great job.  Mostly I'd just adjust the lighting.  

This is the fourth game in the video - 11:35

Interesting experience. I think you're undermining your effective visual scares by underscoring it with SFX lifted from PT.

My only complaint was how dark it was, fun wee game though, I thought I had read it was your first but I know better now 

Fun little game!

This game looks unique, and has some very weird but interesting ideas behind it.


I can't help but think that your blatant usage of PT assets and ideas is going to lead to people brushing it off as a PT clone. The sink fetus, the Look Behind You, and the code that actually doesn't do anything and serves only as another PT component you chose to use, all tarnishes what could have been a unique and twisted David Lynch-esque game. 

That being said the original things added are really interesting, and I'm looking forward though to what you release in the future, and to see how your own ideas can play out. 

This game has some PT vibes and some sound effects taken from PT, overall really good. Played as part of this 3RHG video :)

Interesting game! Is this the first game you have made?


I want to give a bit of critique:

Things I liked:

1: Very eerie. It feels like something is watching you the whole time.

2: The graphics were fantastic for a single developer.

3: The unique setting. I quite like snowy settings in horror games. Winter is the scariest season IMO when things are dead, so I am glad to see more games take place in it.

4: The music really set the tone for creepy moods.

Things I didn't like:

1: there were a few grammar mistakes. If English is not your first language it is understandable, but it was a bit distracting. Also keeping the words in the center of the screen for too long is distracting

2:There needs to be a way to pause and quit. I wanted to pause for a minute to get a drink, but there is no way of doing it...also if someone needs to quit for some reason, it should be simple to do so.

3. The darkness. It was so dark I couldn't tell where I was supposed to go most of the time. We get a flashlight for like 2 minutes before the game takes it away from us.

Also, this is not a negative point, but the number thing never really came up. A couple monsters said a few numbers, but they never quite made it into the gameplay...that is unless this is part of an ARG(Alternate Reality Game) that we are supposed to dig into further? The numbers are 204863 if anyone wants to look into it further.

(edit) About 5 minutes after writing this review, I googled it and came across a discussion on gamefaqs. Apperantly 204863 was part of an ARG from the game PT. There is quite a bit of discussion about it, but since the silent hills game is cancelled I don't think the ARG will ever be fully solved.

I liked this game it was a little clunky when I was moving but I liked the winter theme to it and the snow makes it more creepy for me. Good Job

Hai! Finally got it done far ya.  ^_^

This game was great! A few grammar mistakes, but the gameplay makes up for it! Great surreal atmosphere that builds up over time. Some areas were a bit too dark to see in, but I managed to get to the end! I liked this! Here's my playthrough:

This game had great atmosphere and was super creepy then just took a nose dive into the super creepy realm lol great work! Truly unsettling. 


What an experience this game is. 

Gave this game a try!

I really enjoyed this  game, it got me with some nice scares and I was creeped out the whole time honestly. I wish we could see the monster walking around though and we get chased or something like that. But good job on the game!

I got confused in the beginning of the game, but I've managed to pull it off by interacting random objects. The navigation wasn't good enough, however the ambient music was very good for the environment. It was a good horror game!

Gave it a go, needs lots of thought, less 'inspiration' from other games, and good optimization

crazy creepy :P

This game is not bad. It just like P.T but I found it really funny in some parts of the game. Anyway Nice scare and game!

Amazing game dev had alot of fun playing it :) i hope you enjoy my gameplay

FULL GAMEPLAY

Nice game I like it but need bit optimization.  Rated 4/5 :)
