I didn't really think it was that good, although the jumpscares got me.

Okay, so I realized that in my original video of Midnight Shift, that there was a logo for "Edmonton Something Something", I can't remember. So I should have already known where you were from before discovering this game, but I apparently forgot. Anyway, greetings from somewhere else in Edmonton.
As I wrote in my rating for this game, and I quote:
"This is kinda boring, honestly. All you do is walk, open doors, and get jumpscared 3 or 4 times, and that's it. It's not actually scary, and there's nothing else to interact with. I'm a gamer, I like to do things when I'm playing games. But this is just a walking simulator with nothing to do in it.
Not that there are walking simulators that I don't enjoy, where you do almost nothing else but walk, but at least there was some sort of story to follow, and actual interesting content. So at least that kind of stuff made those games fun, but unfortunately, this game was not fun."
Here's my video of this game:
I think I like the original demo better. The mannequins are goofy-looking and not quite as scary. Not that this is bad, I just like the original better. Plus, the "original" and "extended" campaigns in this version don't seem to differ in length by anymore than at least one minute. I thought you would have added more content than that.
It was hard understand whether or not that was the end of the demo, because it just goes straight to the menu without even giving an end message like, "Thanks for playing this demo". So did I actually reach the end of it? Or is there something I was supposed to do, and I screwed up?
I want to play, but my internet has been screwed up for a while, so I can't download it, and Itch.io's update of their client has somehow made me unable to install it too. So I don't know how I'm gonna be able to play your game, unless it's also on Game Jolt. I could install it there.
I made a video of this game. I thought there was a downloadable version of this, seeing as the Itch.io client allowed me to install it. But since there isn't a downloadable version, I guess my complaining about clicking out of the game may have been pointless. But I guess you can use this as a reminder to make the game fullscreen if you do make it downloadable.
I had completely forgotten to share my video of this game. When I had played this originally, it stopped being scary after a short while. And the only monster that ever actually got me was the one under the bed. It was rather easy to avoid dying from the other monsters.
But the real issue I have with this game is that it's rather boring after a short while like I said before. And the game lasted so long, I was getting tired of playing it.
I'm bad with reading PC specs, I really can't be bothered to do it. If your game is too much for my laptop, then it's too much for my laptop. I can't afford anything better than what I've got, so my best choice is to just forget about the game and move on to another.
There were a few things wrong with this. First off, it's basically a Slender type of game, which I already don't like that much. Slender stopped being scary a long time ago, so games that are made like it aren't that scary either.
Then there is the movement, which is don't completely 100% wrong. Every time you make a 180 degree turn while still moving the same direction you were already moving, you slide a little bit in the direction you're facing and start moving the direction I was going instead of constantly moving that direction at the same pace. So if you keep quickly turning the camera around looking for the enemy, then you will pretty much not be moving at all. This is the wrong way to do this.
Another big issue is how slow your character is. You sprint at a snail's pace.
Overall, this game was not fun at all.
Mommy, look! I managed to solve puzzles on my own without looking at a walkthrough!
But honestly, I really enjoyed this game, even though it didn't scare me as much as I was expecting. Looks like I made the right choice following you.
