Yes you have reached the true ending of the game. The sequal named A Dark Place continues the story going forward.

(3 edits)

If you bought the special edition with your current itch.io account you will still have access to the downloads to the paid version without having to pay twice. On the top of the A Dark Place page, it should mention that you own the game and it will give you access to the download link for that as well. If none of this is showing up, it may have been due to re-uploads of the special edition I did in which you can contact me through xer.workstation@gmail.com to receive a new updated download link for the paid version of the game. For your other question, the special edition features a debug menu which gives you the ability to update your save-file to access any of the major levels of the game at any time.  This also gives access to hidden secrets, bonus content, and much more. You will also have access to free roam mode for any see how any level was designed using the ~ key. The special edition also features access to the entire in-game soundtrack which leads up to 70+ songs to listen to. Wallpapers are also featured in this version for personal taste and early access to the older version of the A Dark Place 2 Demo.   

You're welcome. I did manage to upload it anyways just in case anyone else needs it.

The full game was originally going to be $2.99 for about 4 hours worth of gameplay which would also include some special edition features like my previous games. This was going to be done as I was planning on having this as my first Steam release which requires a publishing fee of 100$. However, I haven't fully decided on this being paid yet as this was an idea from a couple of months back. 

An update is coming soon that may include this feature. Not 100% certain if its in a workable state yet but we'll see.

If this already happened once then it shouldn't happen again. If it didn't then a file named Nightmare.bat would still be in the data folder along with the other files. You can delete it if its still there and the game will no longer cause the one time shutdown.

Time Length and Features:

The average playtime length has been estimated to go from 30 to 40 minutes long for the demo experience. We have made the gameplay experience engaging by featuring many environments, mechanics, and many fine details to the design of the game overall.

The Continuation of a Dark Place:

As you return to the depths of the emulated reality, you must find a way to get back to the realm of the withered. This is the place that was considered the finale in the original world before the curse. Nightmare has recreated this forgotten area into his very own realm to represent the ultimate power of his own destruction. This place can now lead to a hidden magical rose which comes with the ultimate power to reset time back before the curse consumed the world. You'll soon discover the hidden truth beyond these emulated realities through the virtual timelines of the past and future.

You can grab and break carry-able objects open by throwing them with force against walls. You can also use the sledgehammer for breaking open multiple boxes at once, and to break open closed vents and doorways by force. Crouch to pickup small key items, crawl through small tunnels, sneak silently away from danger.

I think its because there were not many changes in that version. In terms of the effects I believe only 1 file was removed which was the shutdown feature named Nightmare.bat which can also be deleted manually within the game's data folder. I can however re-upload the updated copy of it by request if you'd like.  

Thank you! Glad it worked out.

Did you try it when the end dialog showed up? What place in the game did you tried the Q reset? 

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed the experience! And for the reset, I figured out during testing that when the game is loaded to the final ending message scene, the Q key still works for the reset menu without requiring the main menu screen.

Thank you so much for enjoying my creations! I truly appreciate it and hope the sequel will be just as good or better when its done.

It's not published on Steam. I am making A Dark Place 2 so I might see if the possibility exists for publishing both games on Steam.

Done! Sent you the non-laggy version

The lag eliminated version is now done, just need to process it for a while and I'll send it over.

I didn't have a chance to make it yet. I was busy for the week

I do something like that and send it over. Do you own Clickteam Fusion? As that software tool was mainly used for a ton of the virus moments.

Probably about 3 days or something like that.

I don't think you can if its see able in the game.  Because the project is built and these files aren't see able. But due to requests for a non-laggy version I can send you that once its done.

Okay!

Nice! My twitter is BlackOut2407. I never really had that type of experience with any of the classic stuff like you do. But yeah i'm definitely down with chatting on my twitter. Discord also works too if you want.

Dang, what type of old tech?

(1 edit)

Yep! No problem! I'm a self-taught independent developer that began to make games at the age of 12. I will send you some development information to your address when I can.

Yep! You're welcome!

Thank you!

I might be able to as I do have the project files saved on my drive. I see what I can do

To fix that go to the gamejolt version page and download the Stream/Video Friendly + Window Fix package https://gamejolt.com/games/ADarkPlace/323680

I sent you the email with the download link of the 32-bit version.

The minimum resolution is 640 x 480 and low mode is on the settings dialog

Possibly 1 more hour till its done processing and 1 hour upload. But you do get 3 to 4 hours playtime total for the full game.   

EST as well

Alright! Will do.

Alright! I should be able to send it to you during somewhere in the afternoon tomorrow as it seems to be taking quite a while to process due to a big size. 

The game has an auto graphic optimizer so performance improves automatically only when its needed.

Yes I can, I send it to you once it is processed and uploaded

I don't really have a Mac to test this on. This version was processed for Mac by request but I wasn't able to do tests on it. The person that requested it didn't really say anything about this type of problem. I would suggest downloading VMware for mac and emulating a windows system and that should work for playing the game with compatibility supported.

This is an Easter egg that occurs randomly at start up. Did that other problem fix?

(1 edit)

Strange, as the latest download for the game is 64 bit. You mean win32?

How I did it was by locking out the quit feature on the window and detected if the program was closed before the time-limit which would then open up another application after it was closed from something other than the hidden quit button. So I made it seem like it detects alt-f4 as a trick but you can probably use input detection in your code to detect two keys at once as another way to pull this off.

Yep! No problem.

There is no android version of the game as there is no mobile support for this game. You may have seen a fake version of the game which is an unplayable ad scam app. If you do still have the link just let me know and I can see what I can do about it.
