I love the concept of this. And solving the final puzzle was very satisfying because I was stuck for a while. Keep it up!

Visuals are not that great but ambient is kinda spooky (as it should be). It could be more complicated or more levels but it's okay for 48 hours. Nice work!

Developer

thanks for your feedback! I’m no artist, but wanted to try and push myself to make custom assets for this jam, so had to keep the clues and gameplay pretty simple. Thanks for playing!

I can see the effort of making a project like this in 48h, unfortunately I suck in this escape-room games so I didn't manage to complete it. Even more than spooky, almost scary ;)

Love the idea of escaping the house, feels like an escape room. The scare was pretty good, and the game was hard, nice job!

Developer

thanks so much for playing!

I loved the puzzle aspect of this game but I have no clue on how to use the ladder I ended up just guessing by putting all of the children names with 5 letters in it XD but the jumpscare really got me tho

lol that’s okay as long as you escaped! The ladder is for the attic...if you could find where that is :) thanks for playing!

I really enjoyed playing this and I love how the game made me feel smart when I figured it out ;) The sound was intense though, I had to turn it waayy down

Developer

thanks for the feedback! Can definitely turn the sound down

Nice atmosphere, except I didn't like the loudness of the jumpscare.

I think I beat the game in a way not intended:

1) I inspected places, found a ladder, took it;

2) then I found no way to use the ladder, so I decided to think about the code;

3) I noticed that one surname is related to Halloween, so I entered the name as code, but couldn't get the key, for my hands were holding the ladder;

4) I restarted the game, reentered the code, took the key and won :D

Developer

The name being related to Halloween was very unintentional, but hey as long as you escaped, that's what matters!

I can definitely turn down the volume on the jump scares, thanks for the feedback!

Good game. It reminds me of an escape room and it really fits the theme. And these hands killed me.

I had fun, but i didnt get the code. I dont know if I was too stupid

Developer

lol no that’s okay, my play testers had a hard time figuring it out too without a clue or two! Hint: try reading the diary and then checking the missing kid posters again :) thanks for playing!

Love the atmosphere, definitely made it feel more spooky. Took a while but once I finally figured out the code it was satisfying. Nice work :).

Very cool! Though the graphics are a bit gritty, I still appreciate them and they add to the overall scary mood along with the creepy ambience! The ghost in the window was a nice touch and I got to feel smart when I cracked the code xD

Developer

thanks for playing! This is my first time making artwork, so I appreciate the feedback!
