This has amazing potential though I'd like to see several tweaks and improvements and then it'd probably be perfect. Don't know if this has been brought up yet, but I think tweaking the player's footsteps would be a good idea. It kind of gets annoying to hear the player take so many tiny steps within a small distance. I hope you make several changes to the game because it is one I'm looking forward to in its finished state.
So far the game has some nice scares and finding the notes that explained what happened in the house is a nice touch. Good luck!
Can't wait for that expansion! Would love to see what you'll do next since being able to explore different areas in a town sounds mighty interesting.
***PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE A MAC USER!***
taken from my posts so that's why it has the update, if you wanna track the updates on my experience look there
It runs buts pretty darn laggy. The beta had a bit of Audio cut outs every here and there but wasn't THIS bad. The game force quit at the beginning of the 3rd day at the bottom of the steps. Also I could stream this and screen record this fine before but now when I try it is EXTREMELY laggy. Like I'm walking every other second having to wait a bit. Hoping updates can reduce this effect. Also the toggling on settings really doesn't help as it doesn't show a difference in the menu meaning I can't tell if it's on or not. I've also check my system requirements as well and they have everything requested. (Also I'm a Mac User so you know)
Now to the game itself. THE FULL GAME IS SOOOOO... MUCH BETTER
Having access to all the new rooms, the voice acting, the scares. I can't believe how much it evolved. But this is amazing and I can sure say that this game is beyond what I thought my money was getting me.
In conclusion this game would get a 10 but it doesn't run on my system well at all even though it worked with Beta and has the right requirements.
UPDATE: I decided to give the game another try Yesterday. I knew it was gonna be laggy but I thought why not. Well now when I start it up it crashes every time. It won't even go past the loading screen. The game basically is just sitting there. I wanna play it because although it lagged when I did previously it was still fun. Now I don't know what to do. It basically is broken after playing it the 3rd time. If you have a Mac I HIGHLY recommend you to buy with caution as the Beta ran without crashing (it lagged but currently it lags every two steps I take) and my system meets the requirements. If there is a way to fix this that would be great but until then I'm out 10 bucks.
Game Itself: Solid 9
Issues Make It: Solid 2
This isn't very good. Developer seems to have no idea what makes a game scary. The game tries to build up a scary atmosphere, but it fails because mostly it just throws random jumpscares at you. You might be startled but never scared. One early scare actually made me laugh out loud because it was so dumb and amateurlishly made, and that kinda ruined the rest of the game. Graphics look ok but in-game models seem badly made or like pre-made stock models. It also relies too much on visual effects like lens flares and blur etc. Not worth paying for.
