very fun but it was very hard to see the crowbar other then that the game is very beutiful and funny 

(+1)

GOOD game

(1 edit) (+1)

also, here's how you do the game for newcomers and people who are stuck 

1. check underneath the skull and bring it to the door

2. check underneath the bedsheet (click the top of the sheet

3. go to the right room and grab the stool

4. go to the left room and place the stool in front of the bookshelf and grab the cat bell on top

6. give the bell to the "beast"

7. go downstairs and grab the lighter next to the ashtray

8. give the cigarettes and the lighter to the dude in the mask

9. go to the table and grab the mug

10. go to the kitchen and use the stool to grab the jerky

11. go to the bathroom door (the door that is taped) and use the impossible knife headwear on it

12. use the mug in the tub give monster jerky and use the mug again

13. go to the monster in the next room and give the mug to it 

14. use the key on the grandfather clock and change the time to 11:10

the rest is obvious

I know no one commented help or anything but I like typing and helping

(+1)

I got stuck, because I didn't know the crowbar is interactable. I'm used to subtitles on interactable objects ;p

The rest of the game was easy

is there a secret ending?

kinda suspecting it

(+2)


hey checked out the update and the game looks really good, tho i cant recall completely everything that was updated but the things i noticed about the update definitely made the game look better, the thing that i did have a problem was spotting one of the items in the basement, but other than that everything was really good i enjoyed revisiting this game keep up the great work familia, also thanks to the dev for letting me know about the update!

(+1)

took me so long to get the crowbar because my cursor wasn't working D:

(+1)

Yep, that was awesome - gameplay, visuals, sound design... Great job! And I can't believe you guys pulled the good ol' portrait easter egg xdxdxd

By the way, the mirror reflection doesn't change when the monster mask is on ;p

(+3)

Fantastic.
(+4)

I don't care what you say.i am going to look in the trashcan until its full

(+1)

Very fun game pretty easy to get a handle on and the puzzles are fairly simple but complex like finding the cigarettes

had me stumped for a bit. I absolutely loved the "No thanks, I'm vegan" monster lol.
(+1)

finding out some of the stuff (like the cigarettes under the sheets) was a tad bit difficult but it was really fun putting all the pieces together! and i just wanna say that marilyn is so fricking beautiful bro

(+1)

i love it!

 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 😄

  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"

Been a while since I played a point &click. Apparently, its not designed to play on android, so I'll have to check it out on pc

(+1)

here is my gameplay

(+1)

Super cute and a couple good jump scares got me good!! I loved this from start to finish for sure. Beautiful art and creak puzzles. Jump scare

(+1)

when she saw the bear and said "Imagine spending five nights with this." made me laugh very cool game! <3

(+1)

Pretty cool, I liked it a lot!

(+1)

OMG, when I saw this game I just got a blackout like not joking. Like instant blackout, like when I finished reading the title.

(+1)

Nice game


(+1)

Lovely game! I had a lot of fun figuring out the puzzles and the ending was a great twist! 

I made a small video on it and I hope I did the game justice! 

Thanks for the amazing game!

like the game but itz kinda hard to find out what to do next besides that i like it

(+1)

Very cool game. I got stuck at one part and had to look up a clue. Frustrated because I *did* try to search the bed by clicking on it a whole bunch, but I didn't click on the *right spot* so it didn't work :-/

Still, lots of fun. Surprise ending. Fantastic :)

(+1)

I loved this game, its so cute!! The ending got me.

(+1)

Spooky scary. fun ending ;)

(+1)

Really awesome game! Thank you!

(+1)

this was the coolest game. I really like how smooth the movements where. there was a bit of difficulty finding the lighter in the bed. the note for this clock messed me up but that was my fault for not seeing it. all round I LOVED IT!!

(+1)

absolutely loved this game and I freaking loved the ending ;)

(+1)

wow this game is good 

(+1)

/edit
(+1)

Awesome!

(+1)

That was amazing!!! The plot twistt!

Keep up the great work!

(+1)

woah

(+1)

I know where the impossible knifehead's nicotine is, but I can't get it from under the covers, help

i clicked the top of the covers and they pulled the covers back, then you should be able to grab them

(+1)

Having seen some of the early phases of Blackout, I definitely appreciate the work that's been put into it. The art and music are both pretty great for something originally out of a LD. Some of the puzzles, while a bit odd, reminded me of some old 90s point&click titles with their "Just roll with it" solutions. Wouldn't mind seeing you guys do more like this.

Good job, devs.
(+1)

Game had me dying with the commentary. Loved it!

(+3)

can anyone give me atleast a clue for the locker thingy

(+5)

post-it guarded by a spider
