I really enjoyed this game demo and am looking forward to the full release !

Really enjoyed the game. There are some improvements that could be made but over all great effort. Looking forward to more from you!

That was very enjoyable. There's a lot to like here; I really hope this gets expanded on, because it did a lot right.
A couple small things I'd like to see changed. Depth of field is crazy aggressive, everything kept blurring unnecessarily. It also had a weird ghosting effect when I waved the flashlight around, that was a little rough when using it to search.
But overall, great job tot he developer and I hope you keep making spooky games. I'll definitely keep an eye out for any future projects!

Amazing game. It was super creepy.

AMAZEBALLS! Check out my very original and epic speedrun

The game is looking good, for the first time in a horror game I have seen something that not only surprised me, but something I haven't seen in another game was the hand crawling away. I do like the item management, it is really easy to combine items that you find. It was also fun seeing a reason to be stealthy in the game as you grabbed the key from the monster, with puzzles that actually take time to think about.

I did have one major bug, on dying I was accidentally grabbed again on respawning. Other than that the game was good, and I am glad to see a game in which the enemy does not lock on to you permanently. 

Looking forward to the full release.

I see potential in this game, a bit of polish and a solid story can drag it to a good place, keep the effort going and thank you for making this!

I liked the part where you investigated the mansion.

Creepy game.

I had a stupid amount of fun playing this one, I don't think I spent enough time exploring the upper floor. I really love the premise though. Here's my playthrough of it! Any support is greatly appreciated!

Excellent game! I love the atmosphere and the graphics are awesome! Can't wait for the full game!

Please subscribe, thanx!
