Major Game Rework in Development

Hello everyone,

The current state of the game is very bad due to our inexperience in game development.
We had many issues with the build of the game and some issues just couldn't be resolved.
We've spent the last year learning from our mistakes and we are now developing a rework of the title that will come as a major update to this game.

Thank you all for your feedback, we promise to bring you a much better experience.

You can see from the image below how the game will look.

PS : you will be able to quit this time.

Thank you for your understanding.

About This Game

A horror game inspired by Amnesia: The Dark Descent. One day Riario got a letter from his grandfather. He told him to seek out his journal and publish it to the world, as he has seen great things and believes that it will change the world. The poor man is puzzled when he sees the village his grandfather used to live in. Finding his diary he slowly realises that his grandfather was a part of a satanist cult. Confused as to why his grandfather believes that this diary will change the world, as it only describes dark rituals and his life as a cultist. Sacrificed spirits lie in this village, but they are now only memories, memories that haunt him.

I was able to relax into the plain graphics and looping sound, and actually enjoy the mood and twisted story. I was sort of charmed by the whole thing! Then came the first jump scare - as cheap and context-free as an old Youtube "maze" prank. I started to lose patience with the many cut-and-paste cabins scattered around, and the lack of a map. I read a bunch of journals, pulled a couple levers, and then - after an hour-and-a-half - I was lost, with no indication of whether I was 2 minutes from a solution or 2 hours. The game told me I couldn't quit (in words that had always suggested I might eventually), so I had to shut it down and pray for an autosave. But, when I booted up again, I was back at the start and p&%$d.

I hate to trash a promising labor of love by a small development team, but the game didn't bore me, it aggravated me. I hope the team saves the day with a save feature, and maybe a map. Until then, I would advise against spending money on it.

Alright. This game has been panned pretty hard, but it did look cool enough for me to have it on my wishlist for a while. Thankfully, it came up in a recent bundle, making it the perfect opportunity to try it out. My experience was a bit of a mixed bag.

Visually, it was pretty standard Unity engine fare, meaning it looked cool, but certainly not ground breaking at all. I have found personally that this style of graphics and sound does work quite well for the more dramatic and conceptual horror titles, so definitely not a bad thing, and I thought the devs actually utilized it well.

However, another standard of the Unity game are rampant bugginess as it pertains to screen tearing, lag, and clipping, all of which are present in this game. Not to a game breaking extent, but it definitely got annoying at times. Also, another thing I have noted with a lot of these games is difficulty with hit detection, like when you are trying to pick up an item 40 or 50 times before it actually recognizes that you really do in fact have the cursor over the item you are trying to pick up. All of those things do serve to break immersion in the game.

As far as the story itself, it is basically as stated in the store page. The story is revealed via notes you find and the occasional on screen message (although those really serve more as hints). It's interesting enough and although sparse, does convey what it intends to quite well.

Speaking of the notes, you definitely need to find all of them before you can move on (from my own game experience anyway). That will take a bit of wandering. They are in the buildings, so dont waste your time looking around the forest floor.

There are a few puzzles in the game, and none were too complex. However, I did run across an issue with what I assume is the last puzzle in what amounts to the third chapter that brings home an actual game breaking issue. No saves, and in fact, no game menu whatsoever. For this game, it would have been ideal to include at the very least, auto saves before critical moments so that, if you mess up, you can go back and try again, least in my play through, messing up a particular puzzle resulted in not being able to progress any further, and unfortunately, once you leave the game, you also have to start over from the very beginning of the game, which isnt cool at all, and in fact, did mark the end of my playthrough.

That is unfortunate, because this game actually is pretty cool despite all its flaws, but given those flaws, combined with no saves, I find it difficult to recommend this game. I rate it as a 3 out of 10, and that rating would increase to a 6 out of 10 if it had saves, for perspective.

Terrible, utterly terrible execution of a game.
First run - great music, great atmosphere, no menu but its ok. Suddenly music stops, you are in a decent room. Suddenly you are not, you are in a basement. You are supposed to carry three items from down there to the room up the stairs. Two of the items bugged, so I had to restart the game. Second attempt, it bugged again. Third attempt, I did it right and teleported again.

And then I experienced framedrops like never ever before - from solid 60 down to 10! After one totally unexpected jump scare (why oh why, I will never know... the atmosphere buildup was not bad) I quit - Oh, I had to Alt+F4 to be precise. On pressing Esc button, game just says "I cant quit now". What a stupidity... oh my...
Great job, so called developers...

One of the worst games I've attempted to play ever. It looks nice enough. The sounds were okay. It just doesn't WORK! When I have to restart the game about 4 times just to be able to FINALLY pick up the book for the first puzzle, there is a problem. And watching the sword glitch through the floor is only funny the first time. It loses it's charm when you can't progress unless you take tiny steps up the stairs just to make sure the object stays with you and isn't lost into the depth of gaming hell.

Let's not forget that the story is also sub-par (when you can actually find the notes and figure out what's going on) and the scares are pathetic at best. Then again, maybe the story would have gotten better and I missed it. I ended up quitting just after I found what I think was a cemetary by the cabins, but I couldn't take how broken it was to stick to it and find out.

Developers, keep trying but make sure it works first.

Don't bother buying this game because it is just awful. Graphics are from 90's at best and when you want out of the game it will say "I can't leave now" so you have to use taskmanager to quit. Message to developer is to start thinking about improving game some more before even publish it(at least for the next project).

There are some rather obvious oversights (especially the lack of a save feature), but besides that I actually genuinely enjoyed the game.
Huge props to the developers for making this their first game!

It's a very interesting puzzle game, more than a horror game. It gave me a very fulfiling 2 hours of gameplay, filled with cool puzzle and a creepy tone.

I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoyes a quick sit at a scary puzzle game.

After playing this game my emotions are quite mixed. In some moments I was really annoyed by the fact that there is no main menu or pause menu but also, I kinda got over it.
The idea of this game is good, I like the story quite a lot, but there are many things that should be fixed as trees penetrating through some object(branches), and dumb AI for example.
My conclusion is that for a small price this is a solid game, you can actually feel the breeze while playing which I like.
7/10 for indie game!!
