Nice mechanics and great game overall but I think the game should be darker by default. 

honestly this game scared me. it was great and you guys did an amazing job

This was so damn good! A truly unique experience! Very interesting mechanics and a great buildup to the ending. Here's my playthrough:

That was a seriously creepy game, especially with the music box. I loved how the toy car moved on it's own when the music played.

This is a fantastic game! It looks phenomenal and you've manage the maintain the atmosphere through the whole thing. LOVE it!!

Better late than never play this game! Thanks guy's, I had a great time playing it!

I Love this short but intensive Journey, Great Design, Graphic and good Feeling, when i play dis one ;)Love from germany

I absolutely loved this game. The jump scares where perfect and not too frequent but just enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. Really liked the whole concept of this, not knowing what a clue would lead to. Fantastic job. 

Notes of Obsession is a great game that stands the test of time. You guys produced this 2 years ago!  I've been meaning to play it for about a year but, always put it off. Honestly I thought it was going to be super jumpscarey! I'm glad that even if you get jumpscared and, caught you can still beat the game.


Muy bueno, espero hagais más. Saludos desde España

Finally I played this game and atmosphere is so amazing here. Spooky even when you know what will happen

That was an absolutely terrifying monster, and I just want to say the music box was a really interesting mechanic that I'd love to see implemented in a bigger work! the way it summons the monster yet at the same time reveals what you're looking for is a genius way of keeping tension

Been hearing about this for a while, and finally got around to giving it a go. What an amazing experience, and what a testament to just how much can be accomplished with just how little.

All we have here is a house, a monster, and a game mechanic that forces you to attract its attention, and it's absolutely spine chilling! Great stuff, you guys!

I absolutely love this game! I hope you guys make a full title out of this! I love the game mechanic involved around the music box! So cool! 

Check out my video! :)

Loved this game! Very well done. Looking forward to whats next form Creaky Stairs Studios!

Fantastic horror game! The graphics are superb and the atmosphere is absolutely menacing. Better then most horror games i've bought on steam.

So this might not be the most conventional playthrough of Notes of Obsession, but I really enjoyed the game. Wish you guys made more! :(
