That sounds annoying! It's working for us, so it's probably something about how Ossuary handles something about your machine. Are you using Windows? Can you think of anything notable about your setup that might be related?

And just to make sure: you're quitting and restarting the whole game after changing the scaling setting?

I'm as baffled as you are. I use Windows 10 and can't think of anything remarkable about my setup. My computer's a few years old, but it runs most games just fine. You're correct: I've restarted the program after adjusting the scaling settings, but the size of the program window doesn't change at all. 

We might not be able to figure out a solution for this, sadly. Ossuary is made in Adobe AIR, which is an old and weird technology that makes diagnosing this sort of thing hard. My guess is that the game somehow incorrectly thinks that your monitor is smaller than it is, and is resizing/scaling itself smaller to fit. Are you using a high-DPI monitor, or doing something else interesting display-wise? If so, there may be compatibility settings that could help.

I can understand that playing the game in a little box isn't a good way to experience it, and I'm sorry if we're unable to come up with a fix. If you find it an acceptable workaround, you can use Windows's Magnifier utility to zoom in on the game, but obviously that's not ideal.


Thank you. This at least gives me some insight into what the problem may be along with some potential solutions. If I happen upon a fix, I'll let you know.

Sadly, it looks like I won't get to play Ossuary. I tried changing the compatibility to Windows 8, reduce the resolution of the application, and disable high-DPI scaling effects (among other things), but nothing worked. It's unfortunate because it's clearly a clever game: I like the writing, the world-building, the weirdness, the mystery. And I got interested in the first place because Extra Credits introduced me to The Majesty of Colors

On the off-chance you ever remaster the game, I'd love to play it.

Thanks for the update and all your patience! We're sad about the issue and we'll keep an eye out to see if we hear about any more clues for what might be causing it. If you got the game on its own (i.e. not in one of the huge charity bundles), feel free to request a refund by contacting Itch support and letting them know we couldn't solve your issue:
