I am streaming/recording and there is no sound.

If you are streaming with OBS, OBS sometimes deletes the audio from RPGMaker games. You have to try different ways of capturing the game (I believe it will only work if you capture as Window and not as Game).

Does the game contain jump scares?

No jump scares.

Short but amazing and sweet game! Lots of details down to the flavor text and the updating pause menu! Also Jake is just so very handsome. Can't go wrong with this game 💚

AMAZING GAME THAT I ENJOYED EVERY SECOND WHEN PLAYING!! The atmosphere and the environment builds everything up super well and the puzzles arent too difficult but they arent boring either! Theres so much foreshadowing but the twist STILL PUNCHES YOU IN THE GUT. Dont look for the twist tho. Forget about my comment entirelt~ only remember that this is a good game~ experience it entirely for urself >:3

LOVE this game, it was a delight to play and to replay! Exploring the environment was so fun, and the dialogue cracked me up! The twist at the end managed to get me the first time I played, too, and the two different endings is a lovely touch. Wonderful game to play for spooky month! Will be playing it again soon :)


that was an amazing twist that I actually didn't see coming, the art is really nice, and *wow* the sudden atmosphere shift, *chef's kiss* perfection.

A good game for this spooky season, pretty solid short story and a good character to play as. It bugged at the end I think...

Thank you for playing! 

It did bug at the credits scene but I am not sure why, that never happened through the testing, but I'll keep an eye open in case it happens again.

One of the best games I have played awesome for Spooky Month.

 Thank you! It's always encouraging to get comments like this.
