I have to admit that I was expecting a more cinematic experience from the screenshots on the page. I also wish the walking speed was 3x faster because finding the dolls took foooorever. Some scares were effective, others not so much. I also think the monster was completely ineffective because of how easy it is to avoid them by turning the flash light off. They were more of a nuisance than the scary monster you probably intended them to be. 

Day 2 and 3 were at least 4x better than day 1 was. They were just much more visually interesting and things were actually happening. The hallway with all the flies was very cool.  

I also don't entirely understand the ending of the game. I won't spoil it, but what the heck is going on? The Kokeshi Curse is a truly mysterious phenomenon.


Shoutout to Krip Kode for reaching out. I really appreciate it. This was an amazing game and I highly recommend it.

This game was fun to play.  The atmosphere was great and it got me a couple times haha. After playing this game and Note of the Day, I'm really looking forward to what you create next! Keep up the awesome work!!

Here's my playthrough of it.


No-commentary playthrough:

Incredible work! Loved the story, visuals, sound, and gameplay. It'd be cool to see what you might do for a similar, but more expansive game. Multiple locations with some bells and whistles (collectibles, lore, minigames, etc.). In any event, I'll be following to see what you come up with next!

This game was really creepy and made me feel on edge the whole time. I love the sound effects and the blinking of the flashlight. Great work!

Thank you for trying out my game!
