Hey, I played this game and I love the concept truly an example of a simple concept being turned into a chilling experience. Check out my playthrough on my channel
This game was so good and well made, shoutout to the devs dude thank you guys.
The Graphics Of The Game Was Nice And I Liked It
Check Out My Video

The radio plays a voice line on repeat that serves as a riddle as to where they are :).
I SERCH THE WHOLE HOUSE
One's at the top of the stairs that's blocked off, one's beneath the stairs at the door, and one's in front of the closet
Good game loved it and the demon at the end is thicc keep it up.
This game was kind of interesting, it wasn't very scary and not a lot happened. My friends and I played this game for a Random Horror Games video and it wasn't terrible but there also wasn't much "horror" in our opinions.
Game is at 30:46
Thanks for playing! The game was somewhat experimental so it piggybacks off an existing fear from many people's childhoods, so it makes sense that it doesn't strike a chord for everyone in terms of horror. Nonetheless thanks for playing and thanks for the feedback!
game had me at the end lol here's my playthrough on jt!
Simple Idea, But Fantastic Game!
That's My Video On It! :)
Aye nice game here bro. Simple yet intriguing. We can all agree that as a child turning off the light and running upstairs a demon was chasing and this game brings back those experiences.👍👍
Simple concept, but well done in general. The start and the end game are great, but I did miss something in the middle. As if I needed a bit more story? I really liked it though! Good Job, developer =)
Thanks for playing and for the feedback!
Yeah, it served mostly as an experiment so the story wasn't particularly well thought out. Tried to keep it as vague as possible so people can interpret it their own way to an extent. For me it symbolizes my sleep paralysis which gets progressively worse when I become sleep deprived, but I've heard some people interpreting it as cancer and degenerative diseases as it makes you feel helpless trying to stop it.
Always interesting to hear all the different perspectives from everyone!
This was a really fun little game, the subtle jumpscares and the atmosphere was great, good work :)
Do jeito que eu gosto, simples, imersivo e com um mistério por trás, será ótimo se o criador trouxer continuações!
Vídeo programado para o dia 31/08.
I really enjoyed this game. It succeeded in what you were going for in that it captured the atmosphere and tension of being a child in the dark and it put a supernatural spin to it.
You were good at slowly building suspense and because it always stayed pretty subtle the game never fell into the trap of becoming too cheesy.
I watched a few playthroughs of the game and I felt kind of bad because one of my favorite moments was missed by a lot of people so I wanted to acknowledge that I really liked the creature in the dark at Night 4.
I also noticed that a lot of people missed the fact that the radio tells you where the creatures are. This could've easily been cheesy as well but because the "poem" and the voice are actually pretty creepy (in my opinion) and it's just such a radical departure from what came before it I think it works.
While I overall liked this part I think what would maybe help with something like this in the future is to add subtitles to it so the player knows that they're supposed to pay attention to it. This would also help with the issue that it was a bit hard for me to understand at times. I actually still don't know what the last sentence is to be honest. I can understand "One waiting for eternal slumber." but then "(From the) closet (you can tell)"? Well, I obviously figured it out anyway but I'm still really curious what he actually says.
All in all it's a really good and effective horror game. The perfect amount of subtlety so that it's still unsettling and sticks in your mind but not disappointing. :]
Wow that's some generously detailed feedback! I was quite tired of all the rinse and repeat formula horror games which is why I tried an experimental "slow burn" approach without any ear bursting jumpscares from the get go.
The voice line says
"One ascended to the heavens, one stands at the gates of hell, one waits for eternal slumber, from the closet it can tell"
You're one of the few people that picked up on the significance of the voice on the radio. I realized that many people dismiss those kind of things in horror games because it's normally used as a cheesy method to create tension and rarely ever means anything.
The subtitles are a fantastic idea! Unfortunately I don't have the game files anymore as I recently replaced my PC so I won't be updating this game anymore :(
Loved this game, that scared feeling you get when you turn the lights off at the bottom of the stairs hits hard here.
Awesome horror experience. Very atmospherically and unnervingly well done. I encourage you to make more.
Thanks for the encouragement! I already have another one planned, I just need to find the time to make one in between all the other projects
This game Vibes were good! just the thought of being in the dark! gets a lot of people!i just wish you would of seen the monster more then just the ending! could of made it more scary! here is my game play! 3:29 to ending of video.
Thanks! I tried to avoid over exposing the player to the monster to keep it as scary as possible, but there's definitely a fine balance that I've just - just missed
Good game dude!! very scary atmosphere even more because I'm afraid of the dark.
Keep it up
oh my gosh this game was spooky. seeing as one of my greatest fears is being in the dark
This game's sound effects and the atmosphere got me good! Especially when you have to try to fall asleep! I put this game's link in a Discord server that I'm in!
