Not sure if it was intentional but this game prompted me to reset windows to factory defaults.... If your goal was to spook the player into noping out and purging the file from their hard drive, then mission accomplished, very terrifying indeed.

A nice little game. Replayed it couple of times to get different endings.

WHOA, this is awesome. I love the environments, the sound design is on point, the contextual voice acting is great, and I love the effect of looking through the camera to see the future or a horrible past. I think I ran into an undefined state after cutting the rope though, I'm unable to pick up the golden key.

There was a bug where the sprite doesn't disappear after picking it up sometimes. but you do technically have it, it opens the door that is behind the bookcase. Thank you for the kind words though!

This was really cool! Loved what you did with the camera as it made you really have to be focused on the spooky imagery.

I instantly quit the game when the windows pop up showed. But went back soon after, when I realized that it was a scare lol. Otherwise really nice job. I really appreciate all the small details that went into the art!

this game was haunting. The voice acting was very creepy and and combining. The mystery was compelling. I got a few solid replays trying to uncover the secrets.

Developer

Awesome! Thank you for checking it out!

Interesting idea with camera. The graphics are good. The soundtrack is generally at the highest level. It's a pity, I can't fully enjoy the game, it doesn't work correctly for me on Linux via Wine :(  But I was not afraid to lose all Windows files :)

Submitted(+1)

Haha I'm really weak so the sudden images did spook me a bit but this game's really well done! Love the camera mouse-over mechanic, the music, and the art. The theme was nicely incorporated.

Developer

Thanks for checking it out! and i'm glad we were able to spook you a little lol

Submitted(+1)

Really enjoyed the game :)
Atleast what I could play :D
At the part where the key dropped on the floor I just couldnt find the right way to continue....am I really that blind xD?
Sounds were awesome. And the voice actiing was very nice :D
But bgm should be quieter or voice acting louder.
And give the option to put in subtitles. Really helps sometimes :)

All in all really enjoyed it :)

Developer

I forgot to add in the code to make the key sprite disappear once you pick it up, but there is a door behind the bookshelf where you get the keycode, and after you click the key that drops from the hangman becomes accessible to enter. Thank you for checking it out, and yeah the music leveling compared to dialogue was off since all the voices were added last day of jam lol

I just finished ending #4. Just found a problem with the golden key (the image stayed on the floor), put seems that it was picked anyway. 

The idea was very nice!

Submitted(+1)

very good, I liked it all. After I cut the rope of the dead person the key was on the floor but I couldn't pick it up. i tried again and again but it wouldn't work so I gave up. 

Developer

They key does get picked up, but I forgot to setup the code to remove the sprite from the scene lol

I realised and just continued playing the game without it

Windows warned me before I downloaded it, windows warned me when I opened it. I dismiss them and download and play. I think this is a cool mechanic with the camera thing on the start screen. I then gat a message saying "Fresh start       this will remove all your programs apart from pre installed windows ones." You've already scared me before ive even started to play. I'm too scared to continue  ๐Ÿ˜จ.

I liked the concept and the plot of this game.i got ending 3 but couldnt find a way to get ending 1 and 2. the audio is also amazing since i didnt expect real voice acting. it gives a horror vibe which i also liked.however the flashing thing kinda hurts my eyes but not a big problem                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Overall a fantastic game!

Hi there! Thanks for checking it out. and the game endings are dependent on how many jewels you collect. There are 3 jewels in the game. So it is possible to get 4 different endings! But most people have been very thorough while playing! (which is not a bad thing :) ) I was worried about the flashing possibly agitating eyes, I almost put a flashing warning on the game, but didn't have time to. Thank you for the feedback though!

Submitted(+1)

Powerful idea and execution. I liked the gameplay as well. Felt like Phantasmagoria (: I couldn't hear the audio enough at some points. Got me thinking if I missed something important.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback. getting the audio levels was difficult since all the voice lines were done last day of the jam! But I did transcribe the main story dialogues on the itch.io page of the game page if you are interested!

Submitted(+1)

May I suggest Goldwave (freeware)? It has a useful "Maximize Volume" tool for quickly leveling audio files. I'll check out the dialogues. 

Developer

I might have to check it out! Thank you.

Submitted(+1)

Wow, great atmosphere and I really liked the voice acting. Very spooky! Good job :)

Developer

Thank you for checking it out! It's surprising that the voice acting was all done and implemented on the last day! lol

Submitted (1 edit) (+1)

That last day is always feels like its crunch time, lol. But that is super surprising to know since I think it really paid off! Cheers :)

Submitted(+2)

I like the game really nice atmosphere graphics music and the voices are good.

I notice that when you pickup the yellow key after when you are back the key is still on the floor. 

Good Job,

Developer

I noticed the key as well after I already submitted *facepalm* lol But thank you for the feedback!
