Thank you! The engine is UE4, all the models made in Blender and Medium (VR sculpting), textures in Substance and music/SFX in Reaper. :)

Ha! Pretty much sums it up XD

Unfortunately not, it was just a short game made for a jam and I deleted the working files. Sorry about that.

Thank you for your very kind words!

So glad you liked it and thanks for sharing! Couldn't agree more, my girlfriend and I are having our Halloween date seeing some cathedrals and graveyards and it's nice to know we're not the only weirdos out that that do this! XD There's a longer version of this in the works, but I'm sidetracked with another project right now.

Thank you so much for playing and sharing your video! It's really great to see people appreciate the beautiful side of horror. If you liked that then I'd also recommend my game Daemonologie - it's a 2D folk horror about the witch trials in Scotland and great for streamers as it encourages you to talk through your thoughts about the characters and who you trust.

I have seen some of Chet Zar's work before and love it, but I hadn't heard of S.V. Mitchell, thanks for the tip!

Beksinski is my favourite painter so it's really great to see someone pick up on that. Eraserhead by David Lynch was the other big influence on this project. Glad you enjoyed it!

Ha, thanks very much!

Thanks very much! The violin is a VST instrument as I can't handle playing real stringed instruments without frets XD. It's Spitfire Solo Violin. I have the Cello as well and they are both fantastic sounding and very easy to play, switching between longs, shorts, trem and legato notes depending on how you press on the keys instead of clunky keyswitches.

Um, I'm not sure exactly what you mean. It is using the new Lumen GI, which as far as I understand is a software combination of raytraced and screenspace dynamic GI, but not using Nvidia RTX raytracing hardware so you don't require an RTX card to run it.

Nailed the PS1 look and feel! Definitely could have been a classic of the era.

Really excellent work! Everything is well polished and the direction is excellent. It feels very professional in all aspects. For non-vr projects remember to disable the Oculus and SteamVR plugins in UE4. I have no idea why Epic have them enabled by default but it launches SteamVR when you start the game because of it.

Thanks! Unfortunately not, I would have to buy a Mac just to be able to compile the game for Mac OS since that can't be done on a Windows machine.

Thanks for playing and your kind words! There are brightness controls in all 3 versions, written in the description and on a music stand right at the start of the game (unless you downloaded the very first upload a few weeks ago).

Thanks for playing and glad you enjoyed it! I did write the music and I have a link in the description above with the full song if you are interested in listening to it. I have to keep the mechanics simple or I never finish anything XD but I do have a few ideas on how I can expand the concept and the mechanics into a fuller experience, so you may see that in the future.

Thanks for playing and glad you enjoyed it! I completely agree about the confirmation to quit, it's a bad habit of mine to skip that in jam games because it seems like it should be simple but there is actually quite a lot of work. You have to implement UI, mouse pointer control and handle pausing, which is very difficult when I have so many synced audio files playing. I'll try and make sure I include it in future projects as I understand how frustrating it is when you have to start again.

Absolutely wonderful movie and score, thanks for reminding me about this one!

Oh yeah I love Philip Glass and some of the other modern minimalist composers like Steve Reich and Arvo Part. I'll definitely check out Marianelli tho, thanks for the tip!

Hey thanks for playing! Glad you appreciated the reverb change as you walk into the church, I created that effect with reverb samples I recorded in a church here in Edinburgh, such georgous accoustics!

Hope you enjoy the detuned edition too. :)

Thanks for playing and glad you enjoyed it!

Thanks for playing and sharing

Thank you very much! That is very kind of you to say and I'm glad you found this project so interesting. I have a few ideas about taking this concept into something bigger so you may see it in the future. 

I've thought about Kickstarter before but but I would have to be far enough along with a bigger project to be confident that I could finish it. Having a day job means money is not really the issue, I've already purchased most of the hardware and tools I need, it's time that is the problem.

Anyway thank you for your support and your English is excellent! :)


Thanks very much! I worked really hard on writing the music and sound design so it's great to hear that people really appreciate it! That's axcatly what I wanted - for playing the violin in the rain and with the orchestra to be kind of it's own reward and beautiful experience. I'm a terrible programmer so it's all audio, visual and atmosphere for me! Do you have any classical composers you would recommend? I've only really just started composing so it's always great to study from some awesome works.

Hi, thanks for stopping by and sorry the game is unlikely to run on your laptop. I live in Edinburgh, Scotland so that's why it rains all the time in the game XD, but probably quite similar in terms of gothic architecture to Prague. I've never been but I know Bloodborne's team took a lot from the city! It was also infulenced by Bram Stoker's Dracula (the 90s film), the comedy Young Frankenstein and the stories around the violinist Niccolò Paganini selling his soul to the devil.

I've not played a Call of Duty game since the first one in the early 2000s, but I think I know what you mean and that's very kind of you to say.

Thanks very much for playing and so glad to hear you enjoyed it! I got the idea from Young Frankenstein and if you haven't seen it then I highly recommend it. Very funny film with also a brilliant violin score. We need more games with instruments and a focus on audio!

The illustrations and sound design are excellent in this! Shame it's just a demo, I was just getting into it. Good luck on the full release!

This was absolutely wonderful! Icredible visual design, gl;itchy audio and heavy doses of confusion! XD The battle mechanics were also really well guided for how out-there and weird they were. Excellent work!

Thank you! Unfortunately not, I have no formal training and can't write sheet very well. I score everything by ear instead. I might be able to convert the midi to sheet but I have no idea if there is a good software solution for this.

If it helps the chords in the verses are going back and forth between Cm and G. The chorus is G#, G, Fm (2 bars), G#, G, Cm (2 bars). And the lead violin plays on the C harmonic minor scale, so pretty much your standard minor scale but raise the minor 7th up to a major 7th.

Yes, there is an extra flat 2D ghost that is an easter egg for those that have played one of my other games. You can't collect that one. I'm just about to upload a new version with some quality improvements, like brightness controls and the ghost ring a small bell when you are not playing violin so it's easier to find them. Should be up in the next hour or so if you don't mind waiting.

I'm the same - guitar is my main instrument and piano second. There are so many great unusual games on this site! I recommend Anatomy by Kittyhorrorshow if you have not yet tried that one!

Youtubers - sorry about  CookingWithJack's  downvotes! You are welcome to post links to your videos under any of my games as long as you link back to the game page in your description. :)

Not quite sure what you deal is, but Youtubers are welcome on my game pages and a gatekeeping, self-righteous edgelord attitude like yours is not.

Thanks for playing and taking the time to find the last one! Sorry I'm not quite satisfied with the method of finding them as it can take ages if you miss one, but I appreciate you sticking it out!

Thanks for playing and sharing! I love how the violin is so versitile it can go from soft, sweet melodies to the atonal noises of nightmares!

Haha, you think that's bad you should see what the composer had to do! XD Thanks very much for playing and sharing!

Thanks for playing and sharing!

It seems that you are the first! That's a very interesting opinion and I'm glad you shared your thoughts on it. What instrument do you play?

Thanks for playing and sharing!

I'm sorry to hear that. Are you running on Win10x86 (32bit) or x64? Althought the graphic style is retro this actually runs on UE5 and I'm not sure if they support 32bit OS anymore. 

If you are on x64 then what are the rest of your system specs?
