so spooky got me on my tippy toes and shii
I needed a safe word with this game! My poor heart, so good! Please keep up the good work!
Impressive and creepy, both atmospheric and startling with unique little details all around. Great work.
The atmosphere, the visuals and the horror aspect are simply incredible, especially for a game made in 48 hours. Deserves all the praises.
I liked this game a lot, it was definitely a good game to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. I also like how the game did not rely on jumpscares to be scary.
I enjoyed playing through this game! ^_^
Seriously dude, one of the best games I've played on the site. Definitely in my top three. I just gotta ask; what was your inspiration on making the game? Great work! Made a video showcasing your game :)

I could have used a bit more vocal guidance toward the house, but I tend to be impatient.
For the rest, nothing but praise. The atmosphere is vibrant, the progress harrowing, but the entire game is utterly enjoyable to play, and that's all that counts in my book.
Well done and kudos to all involved!
This game was so good. I enjoyed every moment of it (even though it terrified me) Well done guys ! <3
The atmosphere is chilling, the camera handles well and the sounds are perfect,maybe if they had added 2 or more objectives to do it would have been perfect, but it is a good game I loved it! Recommended to all who like terror and urban exploration.

This game is so creepy. :) 5/5
My girlfriend showed me this game and I have to say I wish I didn't get goosebumps but I really did. Thank you for making this it was a lot of fun to play! I hope it gets noticed more!
This game was great, awesome sound design, great atmosphere, and the best part...It isn't jump scare based! The game uses eerie imagery and scary sounds to strike fear in the player, rather than jump scares. Awesome game, keep it up!
Really well made! A bit over the top ngl but i absolutely enjoyed playing it, keep it up!
Thanks to the devs!
This Game is super creepy! The atmosphere and sound freaked me out. Great Game, you did a really good Job! (:
Spooky af game.
Had some much fun playing this game!!!
Awesome game. Love the visuals.
Hello, thanks for making this game. I love the grainy graphic style. What makes this stand apart from others I have played I think is the sound effects. The cry's for help, breaking of branches, panting as you run. Then the sounds the creepy old house makes, floor boards, banging on ceilings. Totally awesome.
Here is my playthrough./edit
love your game so good :):):)
not bad.short and scary.it can give you scare well.enjoyed.
