Why all the hate?
Seen a lot of people saying not to buy this but I would have to say this game is amzing. Can someone who hates it please tell me why without saying, "OMG IT"S ONLY LIKE 30 MINUTES AND IT"S NOT EVEN AS SCARRY AS SLENDER WASTE OF MY MONEY OMFG!'

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

It was horribly written, very little effort was put into the graphics, the story was predictable. I have nothing good to say about this game.

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

The style is not the problem. Before I played it I might have said the same as you, but in game it's really poorly done. Everything is as minimal as possible. None of the items are shown. At least two of the bodies are the exact same one just put in a different place. In the woods there are little bushes which are actually supposed to be paths or something... they act the same way doors do. It's just bad.
For a game this small, I expect a lot more effort to be put into details.
I've played free games that had better graphics, sound and story.

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.

Above poster, Slender is an indie horror game too. It's also free, unlike this one.

Anyway did no one else have a problem with the past tense. I understand what they were trying to do but I really think it didn't work. It was inconsistant at times and just seemed wrong.

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.
Amelia Jan 9, 2013 @ 4:58am 
The plot was boring and predictable and "you choose the plot" is not a good excuse. There was no indication untill I read forum comments after finishing the game that there was even any alternative story - if they are going to make it such an important part of the game they should try explaining it before you start playing.
