- - - Thanks for the first page! - - -
(Really don't know how it got there - especially since the sound was awful yesterday...)

---

A horror game which can be played over and over since you never know where evil hide!

This is an update of the game Awe - The Beckoning.
Updates are based on the feedback from the last version.
Major updates are - "Sudden unfair death" is removed.
Describing text added.
Some tweaking of the variables...

A warning to those faint at heart - Do not play this game since it contain flickering, flashing and sudden horror events. Play on your own risk! (I just write this as a warning so that I won't be sued, not to 'hype' the game/make it seem scarier than it is!)

Feedback most appreciated:
Is it too easy?
Is it too hard?
Should the instructions on how to complete the game be more precise?

Uh.....

There was really no clear instruction of what you're supposed to do... The mouse also disappeared quite a few times.
*Spoiler*
The only time the inventory worked was with the little girl. I don't understand what I was supposed to do with the ring or scissors....

I believe if you fixed these few minor things, and parts of the audio, You'd have a much better version of this game.

Thanks for the review!
An update has been uploaded a few minutes ago and should be live within 24 hours...
The inventory has been tweaked and hopefully it will work better now.
Some people want more instructions, some not.
Thanks again!

Could be awesome...

I loved the atmosphere of this game and the art was awesome. But it really seemed to fall apart after that. I played it several times and each time I was thinking, "what the fuck am I supposed to do?" I finally figured out that I was supposed to find the items and give them to the ghosts.

The only problem here is that the items are extremely arbitrary and hard to find. I love a good point-and-click puzzler and I have noticed that unreasonable relationships between item and task is a key problem in bad puzzlers like this one.

Oh and let me point something out... "sudden unfair death" has most certainly NOT been removed. The time limit for playing this game is way too short and really took away from the experience.

Overall the ambiance was creepy and weird and that was spot on, maybe make the ghost's face a little more skeleton-ish and you'll have a really scary game. But the scripting, frantic arbitrary item search, and time limit really ruined an otherwise good game.

Thanks for the review and kind words on the atmosphere and art!
Earlier the "unfair death" was only determined on if you have the bad luck to run into the wrong rooms. Now, it´s wrong rooms + time that make you die... Perhaps I should expand the time limit, but it's hard to find the balance (written that before...) between a too easy and too hard game...

Not bad. But maybe more clues to help me from getting killed.

Have to agree with the delegation from Loth Lorien

The noise was awful. I could kill the speakers, but in doing so I kill the atmosphere and ambiance that helps makes games like this fantastic.

Ominous is good. Annoying, bad.
