Oh ho, this is fun. Great use of sound effects to heighten the creepiness.


great game, i replayed each steps twice to find good ending and would do more if i didnt read the comments lol.


That was fun! Here's my lil video: 

the sound effects and the art are really good. wouldn't mind playing a long version of it


Thanks for playing! That may happen one day ;)

i'm looking forward to it!


imagine not saying no when the game starts up


this game is so fucking cool but i cant seem to get past any of the ways i have found lol. i die everytime and i was wondering if i could have a hint lmao. if not thats cool :) 


Thanks for playing! There is actually no "good" ending so you probably did them all ;)


Nice little game! Very cool style. I found a typo: at one point the word "group" is misspelled as "gorup."

Spoilers ahead---------

If the game had a proper good ending, it might give the player more closure, like they've accomplished something at the end. Just my opinion. But great job nonetheless!


Wow! I didn't even knew I like this style of game before trying it, and I think this was a good start! I wouldn't mind play a longer version of it, great work!

I don't know if there's a good ending though, I tried every opition (I think) and always ended up having a violent death or getting lost haha


Thanks for playing! There is no good ending ;)

Show post...

nice game


Thanks for playing!


Hello what a great Play! This is super cool and reminds me of The_Quest_(1983_video_game). Claps Claps... now i want to see the other game too lol. I could not figure out how to leave the Game with out alt tab. I did not finish the game I think.  


Thank you for playing, I'm glad you liked it! There is actually no real way to leave the game yet. I didn't even think of adding that! Also there is no single ending.


you are Sly LOL I was going around in circles hahahahah Claps. Awesome Play.
