The game is too dark to see anything and I couldn't find where to go, I had no idea what I was doing and it wasn't as fun to play as I had the impression of how it would be. 

It's the first game I played.

From the screenshots and info about this game, I had some high expectations from it but unfortunately, it let me down. For a start, the game was way to dark at the beginning, I was getting lost constantly and at times I couldn't see a thing. Secondly, the objectives were not clear at all. I tried for 30 minutes to burn down the house with no prevail. Thirdly, it was disorientating. The mask just blurred your vision a but too much and the sensitivity was way too high for me to handle. I also encountered a part where it crashed at the first cutscene but then retified itself after I waited. Honestly, I did have high expectation but afterwards it just turned out that I was just going around in circles. Thats great if you don't want the player to progress and tell a story but for this type of game that seemed like it had a story, it just felt like lazy. I hope you have improved on your other games and look forward to seeing more horror games from you but please take the player into account. They are not the developer and do not know how the game works. What might work for you may not actually work for the players of this game. Your game is last in the video. 

I did it! I finally completed this game!  The entire thing is super confusing and things dont always work right at times but all in all I really like it.  Some mechanics could use improvement and it could help if some questions were answered about the game but with a lot of work I was able to pull it out!  Hopefully my video can help anyone getting stuck, it ended up being a super fun puzzle game!

how scary is it

I don't understand... too dark you can barely see, you can't answer the monolith cause you can't use your mouse anyway possible and you can't fire your gun even if you have ammo (besides 1 shot isn't even enough)

Hey, this game seems really cool, liked the first scene but encountered the same bug as schilcote but I didn't press or click anything and still cannot get it to work :( I'd really appreciate some help, I like the style and wanna play!

That was pretty off the wall, fun as well. Nice job.

It just crashes at the end of the first cutscene.


EDIT:


Oh, no, it looks like you just don't respond to events when the "static-y eyes" thing is up and if the player clicks or presses buttons Windows thinks it's frozen.

Are you gonna make a second one? (: If so I'll be waiting haha
