nic Coba lu buat game Serterah lu tapi Harus 2D bisa gak lu nicπŸ˜†πŸ€“


The devs did an outstanding job on this game. Making a 2D game scary is a hard thing to accomplish, yet they did just that.  I am excited to play the other volumes!

Thanks for the positive reply and gameplay :D!

gak cocok dimainkan,aku stuck diawal karena lupa kode

kalo lupa code, gw saranin mati dulu, nanti bisa load checkpoint abis itu check kodenya lagi

itu walau ingat aku jadi buta map akibat panik di kejar chainsaw.aku udah tau kode nya dari gameplay di yt 

ngambar sendiri?


Wihh keren, slain Unity bisa ap aj?

itu aja :'

kalo scrtach? awkowokok BTW TIK sekolah masih pake scratch?
Nilai TIK pasti 100 tu wkwkwk

The game is so nice and spooky! The amount of time i died trying to outrun the killers but overall it is a good game. Cant wait to actually finish it and play the other volumes! Well done! :D

Thanks, the gameplay felt pretty fun with your naration :D


Thanks for the long gameplay!

Alright, that wasn't new or interesting as first, but it sure was intense as hell, took me a couple tries to beat it, the walk animation is weird af but ok, the dialogues are pretty out of place but fun to read, i didn't even remember what the nailgun was for until going back upstair lol, this also gives me Lakeview Cabin vibe ( i bet you base on the chainsaw massacre incident ) and some of the Puppet Combo games ( the jumpscares and musics are great, but i think the gore should be worked on more ). Anyway please forgive me as i didn't show the intro of the game, also skipping some of the papers that contain words of the captured victims, cuz i wanted to finish the game as fast as possible, i bet you've watched somebody play this game but they all stuck at the instrument puzzle lol, i know it's a good game when you have to read the paper that contains the note order in order to solve the puzzle. Also i think it was because the lack of bandages that let people down as they have a hard time outrun the killers and get killed. The game is bigger than i thought it would be, and very promising too, i hope you guys will keep doing their best for the next volumes, will consider paying for this game if it was released on steam tho.


Thanks a LOT! This is the most effort ever put in a review on my game lmao. Anyways, I think all of the things that you say is incredibly true from the inspirations, cons, etc. I really appreciate it. Thanks also for the gameplay, very very cool. I will try my best to improve on the next volume! :D

Your game is excellent

cool scary

Thanks for the gameplay, really enjoy it

sayangnya gak bisa di mac, "the application can't be opened"

Sepertinya itu masalah privacy & security di mac kamu yg hrs dienable opsi Allow apps downloaded from "Anywhere"

I will add this to my random game stream tomorrow 2/28 7:00 EST =)


Thanks, I'll try my best to watch it live!

The atmosphere , mechanics and graphic style are so good
