  • This is a very polished survival horror game that was a blast to play. The idea is a fun subversion of the "meet the parents" situation; I loved the deep web lore thrown in there for the hell of it. There was a lot of flavor to the design of the house and gory scenes that made exploration interesting, uncovering new parts of the building. The 'blink' mechanic is nothing new but I like how abruptly you're drawn from exploring to finding a place to run or hide - it definitely kept me on my toes!  

    We thought it deserved to be one of the 'Host's Choices' for this jam. Thanks so much for submitting your game!

TOPIC: Refund for EMULATOR (COMPLAINT ID# 34023)

Hi. I am a consumer of Happy Palace deep web services and purchased your product 'EMULATOR' three weeks ago, and was looking for a refund. Basically I was expecting the product to be an all-in-one software console emulator, but when I put the installer CD in my computer, the disk launched software that compromised my computer and basically made static appear on my screen. Concerned by this, I took the computer to a repair shop that day for a recovery, but I haven't heard back from them yet. Unfortunately, the store recently had an incident, so I'm not able to return the product. Apparently the staff were found dead - stabbed, apparently - and my computer self-combusted in some sort of electrical fire. Notwithstanding this bizarre occurrence I believe your product is maliciously designed to attack and destroy user software and if a $200 refund is not given I will see you in court to repay costs for my computer. Thanks.
