awesome, scary as a shit, waiting for entire game

my camera is spinning is that the game or nah?


I haven't played this game and I ALREADY like the VHS filter with the use of modern technology.  A clash of two different generations.

yo been a long time since a short indie horror game has actually got me, liked it a lot, looking forward for part 2

Your game was amazing! Scared the $H!T out of me LOL! Seriously cant wait for more episodes!!! Hope you enjoy this little video I made <3

Omg good gam

This was a fantastic experience! It didn't use jump scares but solely relied on the atmosphere and storytelling to create such an unique horror experience! Looking forward to the upcoming episodes! Keep up the great work! 

Just played this on the channel. Def gonna play ep2. The atmosphere.. then that Jumpscare..

This game was Fantastic! kept me interested the whole game!I loved the photo-realistic look and the VHS style! this game is a must play! AND there is going to be more! this game was able to scare me ONE time! that is pretty good! keep up the good work! :) here is my play through! 

had great fun with this one <3

Who would have thought my biggest issue in a horror game would be figuring out how to cook a lasagna...

Episode 2 is gonna be lit ong

This was amazing! It was really creative in places, and I loved the way it looks

The Game was superfun and suspenseful, I look forward to more episodes.

Looking forward to the full version of this, thanks dev, I enjoyed it!馃憤

I enjoyed it! was actually pretty psychological, looking forward to the next episode :)

(also fyi for anyone else who might wanna do a video on this, the TV's music is copyrigthed, if your worried about that)

This game was genuinely so cool! I loved the styling and it was so scary too! Here's a gameplay video I made on it xD

This game is amazing can't wait for my episodes to come out now I am pretty invested loving this game type of game I want more of. Enjoy the Vide

This is very good! I really love horror games that are based on reality rather than paranormal elements. The VHS effect is subtle and well-done too, because I can't stand VHS effects that are too aggressive.
Would really love to see another game based on the idea of everyday horror.

Nice game dude, I really enjoy it!


For arab Gamers or people that can understand my accent , dev you can do better with the sound effects 


I didn't notice someone walking up the stairs until I was editing. WHO IS THAT???
Well done! Can't wait for the next chapter!


"lock all the doors"

immediately opens the door instead of locking it

This game was nuts! The atmosphere in this game was done very nicely. Also, the mini movie was insane ~ where is that from?


love the game and style cant wait for more episodes to come out I will be playing all of them 

Great job on the game and I cant wait to see what you do next  


good game cant wait for other ep drop

The intruder breaks in while I'm eating lasagna, but if I open the front door at midnight I get jumped by them, they're supposed to be inside. Care to explain dev?

I definitely would love to play the full version of this!!! Such a good game and not only did the jumps get me, but for some reason the fridge scared me every time I opened it 馃槀 the atmosphere was just so scary I was on edge the whole time! 

I just love it when my character is a redditor. Dime a dozen PS1 horror game where a I get to rp as a 14 year old. Yay...

Mrs. Paula is a damn dirty snitch.

Holy Crap! Great story! Scary as freak! Can鈥檛 wait for the next episodes!

Very scary game, and of course I do the opposite and open the door... Great game looking forward to more.

Amazing video ray, this was very much worth the play, This game is so well done and scared the living daylights out of me. So excited to see what else you got in stored for us.

in the future can you make a web version even if it looks bad

i just wanna play on a chromebook

Hi Rayll, thanks so much for making this game! You sure almost scared me to death, that jumpscare was so loud but I guess it was from all the tension that had been building up. Yeah I got the bad ending馃槺, but it was fun nonetheless. Very detailed indie game! I hope to play all the episodes you have played for this game!
