Hello there, First of all, I want to thank you for playing my game, even if it does have bugs, details, events, and other problems because my computer can't handle it. And yes, this is my final game for this year. I'll temporarily stop game development, but maybe I'll start again next year. I intend to create a better game.

Played your game, but unfortunately I was unable to complete it, because it was way too dark.

If you're interested in more in depth feedback let me know.

Sorry for the inconvenience; I intentionally made the scene darker so that the atmosphere would be the main focus. I may change the settings to include gamma. In the next game, a flashlight will be used instead of a lighter.

No worries, I just want to give you my honest opinion. I get it that you want a dark atmosphere. It’s all about finding the right balance, so it doesn’t ruin the experience for the player.

The lighter works fine, if you increase the light radius and the intensity a little bit. 

Keep at it and good luck with your games!

I appreciate your feedback. It's true. Thank you very much. Yes, I'll tweak the lighter a little bit.

I love the vibes of the horror inside a house! This game has some really interesting jumpscares! The final run-away chase feels unfair though xD

I'm glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for playing. Yes, I purposefully made it difficult for the chase part.

why i dead?

Sorry for the bug, maybe the problem is the collision. I will fix it later.

The jump scares I didnt see coming at all. Well done on the game and the flow, felt really good to play it. 

What? You finished it in under ten minutes. That is amazing.

Great game

Thanks for playing!...

you welcome

I will be playing this live tomorrow 5/22 around 7 PM EST =)


Thanks for playing!...

I'm going to play it again later this week :)

Great game, really enjoyed the atmosphere and story

Thanks for playing!...

I will never enter in this creepy house again! hahaha.. really nice game. :D


hahahah... Thanks for playing. You did it bro!

Really enjoyed the story here ! It was super easy to make commentary on the game too which i loved. One downside is that i encountered a few bugs(please keep the phone one) LOL. Good job otherwise ! 

I made a video on your game if you're interested :)

Haha, thanks for playing!. Yeah, I intentionally made the storyline easy to understand.

画面还需要优化,有些判定不太符合常规,比如我最后跑出去好几次好像被传送回屋子里了,我后来弄明白了,跑到门口之后要慢慢走出去,让判定反应过来。虽然看录像还行,玩的时候挺黑的,最后跑路的时候经常看不见,打火机作用太小了。话说爸爸是就此失踪了吗?【喵玛】爸爸,别丢下我啊!The Unknown Fear(未知的恐惧)恐怖游戏视频(中文字幕)

I can't use the keys. How do you do it?

just go up to the doors and left mouse click or E at the locked doors

So it stays as a reported bug, because the ports are not opening.
I tried to play again. I took the two keys, opened the safe and only the TV is missing, but the doors do not open

I enjoyed  your game! The graphics are so beautiful and it was so scary! I wanted to run away so fast in my heart but my control was so bad and too slow😂Haha 10sec was the most surprising moment!

Haha! Thanks for playing, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
