I really enjoyed the music and general atmosphere. I wasn't able to get too far in the game as I wasn't able to use flashlight.

Might be a possible issue with FireFox and detecting the mouse being held?

That's very possible, I've only tested with chrome. After the voting I'm going to try and troubleshoot to see what the problem is. Thanks for your feedback!

Wow! This is extremely well done! Very original and deceptively hard! If you plan on developing this more (please do!) I would suggest making it more clear when enemies have fully despawned.

Developer

Thanks for playing! That's a great suggestion, and one I actually planned on implementing during the jam but unfortunately had to scrap due to time. Thank you for your idea!

My heart jumped out of my chest when I saw the first baddie and the music changed. Well done :)

Developer

Haha that's the kind of reaction I was going for! Thanks for checking it out!

Thank you!

This was pretty fun! I like the use of the different items to increase your field of view. Would be cool to see some walk animations on the character in the future, but overall great job!

I'd really appreciate it if you could rate my game as well! :)

Developer

Thank you for checking it out!

Pretty cool game. Unfortunately the flashlight didn't work for me either, but hey, flashlights never work on horror movies anyway! Very nice spooky atmosphere.

Developer

I'm curious that's very strange. So the flashlight just wasn't pointing towards your mouse cursor at all? And were you playing the HTML or the Windows version? Either way thanks for checking it out

I tried both versions, and they had the same issue; the player wasn't reacting to the cursor at all, nor pressing the mouse buttons. It was like the game couldn't find the mouse at all.

Thank you!

I have to admit it, this is so far the best spooky themed game for me right now. The ambient, the sudden change in music as a ghost appears, it all lined up so splendid! I will so though, the music was a bit loud, but I was actually spooked when the ghosts ended up popping up. Awesome job!

Thank you so much for your support! I really appreciate it and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Nice game! I really like this movement controls but i couldn't open flashlight with mouse button. I don't know why but the game was pretty fun. Also i would appreciate it if you could play and rate my game.

Developer(+1)

I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm not sure why the flashlight wasn't working with your mouse. It could just be a bug with the Browser build. If you have a Windows system I'd recommend downloading the windows version and seeing if that fixes it. Regardless, thanks for your comment and thanks for playing!

I love the mood from the lighting and the music! The concept is nice as well! Thanks for adding a browser version btw.

Developer(+1)

No problem! Thank you for your support!

I love the concept! I just wish there were more ways to escape the ghosts, but solid gameplay, good job.

Developer(+1)

Thank you! I agree that giving more choices to the player when it comes to escaping ghosts is an excellent idea! However, with the time constraints of the game jam, it was something I was unable to get to in time. Thank you so much for your feedback
