I'm looking forward to the sequel.

This certainly has its charm and I think, the full game will find a big audience. It has the right ingredients for a very fun experience (I had some questions about the plot in the demo but those might be answered in the full game, because the demo had a lot of stuff in it). 

I really enjoyed this demo, looking forward to the full game!

This one starts at 5:10 in the video.

Interesting little demo! I'm curious for the rest of the game!


Знаю, что автор русский, поэтому могу писать так. Уже смотрю не первую игру этого автора,поэтому стиль мне нравиться.В общем, игра очень даже неплоха. Очень понравилось наличие прикольных, необычных загадок, а также местами пугающих скримеров. Игра хорошо оптимизирована, что радует. Сюжет пока непонятен, но, думаю, после выхода игры из беты(чего я однозначно буду ждать) все станет чуть понятнее. В общем, игра хорошая , мне понравилась.

Спасибо за добрые слова :)

Выход полной версии вполне может затянуться, все зависит от того, получится найти издателя или нет, с чем, пока что проблематично. Без помощи издателя в продвижении, делать и продвигать +/- большую игру весьма проблематично. В любом случае, продолжаю искать издателя)

собираешься выпускать только на ичт или еще платформы ищешь? 

This demo was awesome lol! I can't wait for

the full game!

I made a video on your game (42:27)


What a creepy deer :O

I thought this was an awesome game - scary enough to give you the creeps and just atmospheric.

Comments below clip:

Once you wake up, you want to be awake. This game keeps you in and odd, dream-state like version of surreal reality. Where today is the past, and yesterday the future. Does that make sense...? Play the damned game and you'll know what I'm talking about.

Well done, guys. Had a great time playing/recording it, and didn't run into any bugs, hiccups or snags. Kudos to all involved!


+Je teste ce jeu depuis la France, je le trouve incroyable j'ai hâte de connaitre la suite !

+I test this game from France , I find it incredibIe  can't wait to know the rest!

This was fun!

Awesome demo! I’m looking forward to more chapters! 10/10

Pretty good for a demo! I'm not sure if it was just me, but there was some screen pixilation. Otherwise it worked fine! I wonder if you'll add a monster sound or something to the deer in the full release, so can't wait to play it! Great job!

Nice game, probably could get a hidden jumpscare to at least get me horrified!

Vraiment super!

J ai hate de faire la suite =]

Merci et bon travail

great game so far!

Great game, can't wait for the full game to come out! 

It's a really nice game. I wish the deer would do something if you stared at the camera, but beyond that, nice game.

Here's my channel for other games I have played. https://www.youtube.com/@Levont

love it thank you so much :):)

Fun short horror game. Definitely a bit goofy but had some genuine scares to it. Awesome job!

great demo!

Fantastic game!!! I hope to see the full version of the game!!! I definitely will play it!!! 10/10!!!

Short and creepy demo, good work :)


Well its a short demo with some small puzzle hoping to see more of the deer or the hands. Some weird implications about the player character needing to take pills being that he's just on meds and seeing a deer man.

I enjoyed this, knowing its a demo. Wish it was a little longer after the chase part! Was just getting good lol

Nice game

The "paper got stuck" bug was FIXED

Very cool!


Cool But Too Short. 4/5

Sorry, but this game is a DEMO which contains only chapter 1

Waiting for more. :) 

I look forward to full version and wish you good luck with future developments)

thank you very much for feedback :)
