A really cool game:) 

My playtrough of your game



this game was cool! I liked the scares and the little exploration looking for the symbols, was creepy as heck :D

Great game! Wasn't expecting lore in such a short experience, even if simple it gives a different depth to the game :)

A fantastic game, that left me hungry for more!!! Graphically superb, still holds up to this day! The creature in it, is completely messed up. Nightmare inducing!!! Loved the whole thing! Thank you dev! If you want to check out my experience of this game then please feel free to check out the video below!

Nice to meet you!

I'm “sare” making a video on youtube.

I released a video of this game today!

It was a horror game with a high degree of perfection, and it was a lot of fun!

(I'm a little weak in English, so I'm sorry if it's difficult to understand.)

Awesome game, still holds up to todays standards very well!

[ STARTS 13:20 ] This game definitely had the atmosphere going for it! Fire mechanics really unique!

i loved this game! The mechanic made it really unique, and i was petrified throughout.

Since I deleted the original video I made on this game I decided to pay it a revisit. Tbh, it still holds up very well and actually matches up with today's horror games.

fuckin love this game, so simple yet so fun and the music is soo eerie good 

interesting game quite short and easy to understand game

This game seriously freaked me out. Incredible game. Can't wait to see what you develop in the future. Keep it up!

LOVED THIS very creepy though very dark lol I put it in my three free horror games video if you wish to check it out

Welcome back to three free horror games (Ep.6) Todays games are more weird than horrifying but are scary in their own rights. Come check it out as we go from searching to symbols to hiding by closing our eyes. Welcome back to the Asylum

This game was made some time ago that STILL competes with the newer made games. Highly detailed  to the point where you see the the design on the wall !  Great game indeed ! Game here:

Please share and subscribe !!

SKIP TO 8:51!!!

The atmosphere and objective in this game are really well done!  I had a lot of fun trying out this game! 


Quite short, but very fun!

Wow. Loved it. The game was keeping my interest and tention to the very end. I wish there would be more.

This was an amazingly terrifying experience that was executed fantastically on all fronts from the graphics, to the sound, and especially the game play. To everyone who was involved in making this game I’d like to thank you for the horrifying experience, and I hope you all keep up the incredible work.

very enjoy the game nice

It is perfect! Thanks for this experience! Don't forget to like & subscribe for no commentary games :)

this game had me freaking out i was on edge the whole time i loved it and i highly recommend playing this game i played it on twitch as you can see here  https://www.twitch.tv/videos/692953057 give all these guys love that mad this game  also the graphics are unreal and fantastic 

One of the best games I have played on itchio. I strongly recommend playing it. The graphics are outstanding and the storyline is perfect. Great work!

I won't lie. After my first in-game demise, I gave up. For some reason, it just creeped me out too much and that coupled with sleep deprivation was simply a bad mixture for me. 

This game is great it has everything I like in a horror game, I also love the twisted story of the game. I wish you all the best, and hope to see more from you in the future!

I liked playing this game a lot. It definitely made me wake up when I recorded this when I just woke up in the afternoon. I'm looking forward to more game from you in the future !

If this game was slightly longer, this could literally be on Steam or Epicgames . Such an awesome experience, super polished and engaging story. I sincerely hope you guys stuck together and are creating more gaming experiences. A+++ effort

Please say you're making more horror games?!?!!?!

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
