A short horror game that delivers a dark satanic vibe,  there is potential for this story to go far deeper to uncover the origins of the book and why your grandfather was so obsessed with this particular book... maybe you could be transported inside the book or maybe show flashbacks of  the cursed book being created.

 The English is a little broken but it may not be the creators native language but this can be ironed out if the game continued to develop. The scares are great and unexpected  and the atmosphere is nice and gives off a sense of tension.

Overall a great short horror, it will be interesting to see what this creator does in the future. The game is the first one on my compilation of 3 short scary games.

This game is no joke! It doesn't have much story to offer but is enough to get your mind spooked. Overall, a solid game that I would play again, any day! I also made a cinematic styled narrated video on it and got spooked everytime I sat down to edit!

Was a really good game! Loved the way it started off and the the jump scares as well. The English could be  a little better, but it was understandable and the story was very good as well!

I loved the jumpscares; they were well thought out and it happened when the lights flickerd in and out and there was a build up to them which was really well done. The jumpscares that happen in the corridor was also well planned out and scary! 

Only thing I wish that was used si the closet in the corridor as it was a huge scare potential and I kept expecting something to pop out of there.

But yeah, great game and good luck on future projects!

The only problem I have is this game so short man! But overall is was good!! Keep up man!

The jump scares actually caught me off-guard and i screamed like a little girl haha! Overall I enjoyed it! Can't wait to see the bigger game with this atmosphere!  

here is my game play was a fun little game enjoyed it alot looking forward to playing more of your games 

This game got me good with the scares! I really enjoyed it! Your game is around the 6:00 minute mark! 

Short but well done.

I loved the design of the room and the scares were done well. That first scare really got me haha. I would love to see more games from you!


Your game was the 2nd one

i would love to see the concepts in this game fleshed out, you 100% nailed the atmosphere, and I think in a fully fleshed out, touched up game, it would be so scary! There's a lot of potential here! I'll post my video if you care to watch, but I look forward to seeing more from you!

That jump scare made my whole desk move! I enjoyed the game a lot. all the jokes about the grammar were just jokes btw :). only love from me. The game is at 0:47

Short and sweet. Great horror quicky! Playthrough here.

Secong game in the video. Looked Awesome!!!

Thank you for this game. I had a good time with it! You did a great job with that jumpscare, it got me pretty good. Also because of this game I'm not reading any of my grandpa's old books. Your game starts in the beginning of my video.

I was NOT ready for that dead guy to run straight at me ahaha this was a quick fun and spooky experience. The feel of the game was definitely scary, I think that element was captured. Only thing missing was the obvious, no story or objectives for the player. So I'd say test run complete! 

Good work!

short simple horror game. nearly had an attack from that jumpscare XD

Cool game. Have you thought about expanding on the story a bit. Answering questions like - Where did the book come from? How did the grandfather get it and so on?

For a shorter horror game this was actually really scary and I liked it so much that I put it in a video and it is the second game I play if that's alright. I hope you make more games in the future!

I really liked the game, it took a second to get into it but when the jump scares started I really got into it. 

I played the game (heres the link) its okay for a start to a game but certainly needs work however looking at the textures and some of the other base things needed it does show some good potential

Overall, it's a very good short horror experience :) Check out the video down below :)

However, I don't really understand what's exactly inside that book... Is that just a book with verses from the bible in it to fight against the devil? Or something else?

Also... There's a problem with the language in this game.

I'm not trying to say that that I'm 100% good in English, because I'm not. But, I think English in this game needs to be improved, especially the wording. Every day is a school day :)

Looking forward to your next project :)

This was a fun little game it was nice to play and had some good scares and was well timed. I recommend that you play this game for yourself.

fun game for how short it was

This game was great for 24 hours!! And the nice little surprise got me pretty good! I hope to see more games from you soon!

To say this was made in 24 hours it's not bad, met a lovely friend as well!

This was an amazing experience, great work to only make it in 24 hours. Well done. Cannot wait for your next project and an expansion of these ideas. Just amazing. 

Not a bad game! Grammar needs a ton of work tho.

Cool Game just needs a bit of work on the wording

I havent played a game as scary as this in a loonnngg time. I love it. I believe one of the scares actually threw me off my seat! Though you could work on the grammar.

I was intrigued by this game because of its title and, It's good, just needs work. To begin, you should really add a warning about flashing lights, if a person with epilepsy plays it, you can cause some damage and get into some trouble. As well, you should add a sensitivity adjust for the mouse cursor, I believe it's a bit too high. Speaking of, at the end of the game, the mouse can't be seen and I wasn't able to quit the game afterwards without Task Manager. There were also a good amount of grammar mistakes but, that's an easy fix. I did like the mesh used for the demon thing, it looked really cool. Also, it's an interesting story but try to bring it out more, give it more of an impact. Good job, and keep working on it!!

Played the game with my family and we sure as hell got scared lol. It was a good time and interesting story. A couple spelling mistakes but that isn't a  big issue. Keep it up!
