Why all the hate?

I paid a dollar, so I can't complain. I'm sure I will play it again. It was fun.

I am yet to play this game but I think the graphics style was deliberately chosen by the developer and I think it fits the game very well. :O

I think this game is a game where the thought of a scare coming scares you as you play through the game and when you loosen up, you feel like you don't want to lose your guard so you tensen up again.

I haven't got very long into the game, but I've enjoyed what I've seen thus far. In terms of graphics, I think it's nice, and wouldn't want them to be any better or worse. I was promised an Indie horror game, and that's what I got. If I wanted a horror game with better graphics, I'd have gotten on DayZ or Slender. This game gets a solid 8 out of 10 for me.

I played the Game (even waited for the Save function to be added) and didn't like it.
I don't mind the whole "retro-Style Graphics" movement that's going on out there, but in this case it seemed like it was less for effect and more to simply cut corners. I found the writing to be very predictable and actually quite boring.
For me, the whole Game just seemed to miss the mark. It cetainly wasn't "scary" and I think it was wrong to market it that way...it would have been just fine to market it as "tense" or "disturbing" but it certainly didn't have any scares in it for me.
I have limited finacial resources and even at its' low price, I could have done without spending that money...there are just so many Games that are better than this one in the same Genre.

If you can't afford a buck or three for a game then maybe gaming isn't a good pass time for you. Find something cheaper perhaps... walking is free, and knitting will allow you to pass hours of time for a small amount of monies worth of supplies.

While it's cheap, I can't recommend this game to anyone. I thought the plot was pretty predicable, and beyond that there's really no other reason to recommend the game. It has the worst aspects of "backtrack to find the key and open the door" that adventure games suffer from without any clever puzzles. I don't mind retro graphics, but there's so little variety in the superflous scene transitions that they just become boring by the end. The text, which tells all of the story, scrolls way too slowly and with no means to display it a page at a time, just serves as filler. The few "puzzles" are ridicoulously simplisitic, involving interacting with each object enough times to get it to change state. After ten minutes, I was just waiting to see the "psycholical horror" some reviewers rave about, waiting for some twist in the plot--yet none was to be had. I like experimental games, I like adventure games, I like psychological games--this game was just a waste of time.

The plot was only predictable because you get to choose what happened, so what you thought happened ended up being what happened.

It's a game about exploration. Some people need games to be purely functional, this one is about discovery. It will not appeal to all. I very much enjoyed it.

This is how I felt. The game was just boring for me. The storyline wasn't exciting, mysterious, or really anything other than bland. Walking around was a pain and I have no idea how I forced myself to read everything...by the end I was just playing so I could say I finished it and never have to play it again.

Very little effort put into the graphics *facepalm* its a pixel game , the story was predictable to a small amount and you choose how the plot went so you only predict what you think might happen next. This game was very enjoyable and I have loads of fun playing it. Whenever I finish a playthrough i'm always left "what if I chose that?" or "I never thought that would happen.".

I liked this game... It didn't end like I expected at all. (Maybe that's just because I picked it that way, but whatever)
