Hello, I liked the game so far, it looks interesting and I’m curious on how it’s going to end ^^

Unfortunately, I got stuck and have no idea what to do. I picked up the candy wrap and found the book with the same symbol on the mom’s room, but I keep roaming around and can’t find what to do next and I don’t know if it’s because of a bug or not because I had a similar problem before. The second time you got to hide I went downstairs and no matter where I hid, nothing happened. I had to restart in the game because it wouldn’t let me go back up and only when I hid in the bathtub they heard the door and went to open it.

But overall good job!

Hi Dreamare!

If you managed to pick up the candy paper, then you're doing a great job, that's the way to go. What you need to do next is to find your brother (he's not hiding, just in a room on the first floor).

Keep me updated of your progress :)

Thank you, I finally found him, I got a bit lost since some rooms keep going if you reach the walls and others don't, so I didn't notice the living room was bigger ^^

After that I managed to keep going until the end, I liked it, the atmosphere is very well made and it has some eerie feeling. The only things I got problems were the rooms as mention before and that Helen was a bit slow. The end left me wanting to know more about the kids missing, the candy and what was happening, I liked the end but it felt a bit sudden and abrupt.

Other than that, you made a good, interesting game! Congrats :D

Developer

Good to know it worked and you made it to the end! Thanks pal  :)

This amazing looking, tense game is unfortunately full of bugs, at least for me.

 Girl getting stuck in places, the dog teleporting, Boy chasing me like a psychopath without saying anything.

 Also, I never got to open any doors to anyone because of the bugs. I can't play it properly.

Developer

Hi udc! Thanks for playing it and letting me know!

I've updated the game, so some of the bugs are gone. 

But here's a tip when you play it again: the first hide and seek game is important, and you can hide from your brother in a place very near to you.

i love this soooooooooooooooo much. it honest to god feel like a little gem on here. the art is so rad and the story feels so cool. even as i was looking around the house for a things i was feeling super creeped out. it made me so tense lmao. unfortunately the tense moments were messed up by the looong periods of time where i couldnt figure out where the fuck am i supposed to look. maybe i suck at games like this but in the end ive walked 80 times around the house in search of a rope or all the previous thing that i eventually just left the game.  lol im embarassed but i loved the story so far anyway

Developer

Hiiii glithch! I'm very happy that you've played and enjoyed the game, thank you!! :D

I don't know if you are going to play it again, but here's a tip: what you need is in the attic. Also, mom has all the keys ;)

oh i tried playing it again but it wont let me continue... :x says a file is missing.

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

ok i just replayed it and i went to the attic. i didnt expect the keys to be needed for the attic since she said 'i cant go up there' not 'its closed' i just thought shes scared of the attic or something lol. i finished the game now and it was really cool! are there like two endings? 

Developer

Congrats on finishing it! There's only one ending to this sad, sad story :P

ooooh then im curious what was up with the basement in the hole. i havent had a chance to check it out and i thought it changes the endong or something
