Hello Psychroclasm, thank you for playing our game! Your video was great, and I wanted to tell you YOU WERE SO CLOSE to getting the good ending!
I want to apologize for the extended stress you endured and would like to give you some clarity as to the glitches you felt you experienced.
Eayan killing you in the house: He will only kill you in the house if you open the front door, because you may have been interacting with everything in the house you may not have realized you opened the front door.
Not being able to run: The first level gives you unlimited light and stamina, the second level does not. What you experienced was your character running out of stamina due to the constant running. It is not indicated in the game but that is what you experienced.
Not being able to pick up items: Some items in the game can only be picked up depending on the angle you look at them. Some items will also break if you run near them. Running affects your environment and in turn will affect the items around you. ALSO, you can only be carrying one item at a time. So, if you felt like you can’t pick up an item when you should, it is most likely because you are already carrying one item.
Eayan not running away when you flash the light at him: This is the one bug we did experience in the game and can be fixed if you turn your light off and then back on. He should then be scared after that.
The secret ending DOES NOT require the game to be completed perfectly in one try. However, it does require that every level is properly completed. You will know you properly beaten a level when Sophia gives her alternate dialogue to the player.
Our hint to you is that you beat the first level and the mini game. The second level required a different action than what you took.
We want to thank you again for playing our game and are very sorry that it stressed you out as much as it did. This game was made to be exceptionally difficult to figure out, but you did an amazing job! If we do decide to finish this game, we would love to stay in communication with you and possibly get a fun challenge of your choosing into the game. 😊 Let us know!
Thank you again,
- -The True Nightmare Team
