Waw really nice horror game , beginning was really nice.

beggining was really good. could have had a better ending 

Creepy and great atmosphere but the ending wasnt that great i personally dont think it scary but it would be better if there was an animation or a noise but yeah i think the beginning was good

 Hey! I played your game on my stream! Watch it to see the live review!  Here's the link for it: https://www.twitch.tv/spacematterplay πŸ˜„

  I would also appreciate if you could give an opinion on our latest game. Game devs advice is precious because we know better what it takes to make something work. It's called "Backdoor Shifts"

Thank you for the thorough feedback! Unfortunately, I can't test Backdoor Shifts because it's Windows exclusive. I'd love to give it a review though!

I love pixelated horror games to death

Fantastic how you managed to fit such a spooky atmosphere into a bit sized game like this! I really enjoyed this! Great work! (Second game in the video)

Thank you so much!

This is scary! You've done a great job building tension with really good pacing. I hope you do some more like this.

When  I see that black hand behind the cupboard my mind said "Headphones not Recommended"!

I cant sleep now....

Thank..

I fkin ha.....

Loved watching your reaction! I'm glad you enjoyed the game!

sleeps

È la stessa idea che ho in mente per un corto  A cui sto cercando di lavorare...ma Γ¨ piΓΉ difficile del previsto. Complimenti per il gioco ,ho fatto un piccolo video.

Thank you!

Short but sweet. Hope that you make longer games in this format because you might have something going on over here. 

The only thing I found to be annoying was the ending jumpscare. It sabotages the entire feeling of dread that was built up to that point. Maybe you can try some alternatives to this instead of going the good ol' jumpscare route. 

All the best!

so short horror and intense

So short

it was pretty good ngl

Really like it but i wish it was longer and have more scares!!! But still a great game tho :)

great game I just wish it was more of a jump scare at the end but overall a great game good job.

Good for you :D Hope you enjoyed it!

same

although I might be dead inside

I find being made artificially powerless with no explanation is just frustrating and alienating so it is hard to be immersed. just my opinion

Thanks for the criticism. This was the second game I made in Unity, so didn't really know how to do character movement but I still wanted to make a horror game. I can see how it didn't work for you though

(+1)

I like the game! good job!

Thank you!

this video has all itch io games i made video on in 2020 including this one. I also wanna say thanks for the game and good luck for future projects. #hellofajourney

This game was a terrific entry for the 2-Minute Horror Game Jam: it is simple, minimalistic, eery and above all, terrifying. I hate that you can't get out of bed to run or hide!  The game forces me to act against my better judgement! I don't want to sleep because of the thing in the room that haunts my every waking moment. Great job! 

Gameplay starts @ 26:00

It was a cool game maybe you could add more to it. It was that scary maybe make the guy at the end jump at you or something

Thanks!

MY REVIEW:  from beginning to just before the end all jumpscares were good not that terrifying but yeah they were pretty cool and spooky. it did gave me goosebumps whenever i saw like the hand and the shadow. it was just like paranormal activity but pixelated . only 1 thing that i hated the most was the ending  when monster pops up. u could have made a really scary human-ish ghost in the like human but completely torn or with heavy amount of wounds. well overall i loved the game, Thank you very much.

MY REACTION:

Thank you for constructive criticism! I agree with you about the end part: it definitely needs more work. I'm glad that everything else before it was spooky though!

yeah some horror games don't really need any monsters or ghosts. the scary activities in the game makes them horrifying.

l cant do

I cant sleep now

Gameplay BR

This game was amazing!

Thank you for playing! I enjoyed watching the video.

I was very confused with what was going on it was a bit confusing at first and originally it was a bit spooky. But as it went on that feeling went away and it just became clichΓ© and the "jumpscare" was a  bit of a let down. You had a good idea if there was more time put into this game it could have been a lot better. So overall good idea but poor execution, I encourage everyone to play this on your own because this is just my opinion.

Thank you for the feedback! This was the first horror game I ever made, so I'm trying to make improvements for my next game.

Well keep working and improving 

Good work! Keep improving :). Maybe when you go to sleep there's a timer, and if you don't press the button it automatically wakes you up? Good stuff, sound was nice!

Pretty spooky. It's kinda funny how little your character cares xD

Yeah, originally I intended the mechanic to be hiding under the covers, but I rushed it so now it's sleeping!
