Hello everyone.This is my first complete attempt at a horror game.

I started working on this last summer, exactly one year ago. Progress abruptly ended, and didn't continue until May 2012. I then decided to finish it this month. Fair and legitimate REVIEWS - not comments - please. Your input can help me aspire to become a better Flash game developer.

Instructions: Navigate using the compass. Click in the direction you would like to go. A red arrow means you can proceed, grey means that there is an obstacle, a locked door, nowhere to go, etc. Generally the arrows point you in that direction. Sometimes, the down arrow moves you back, sometimes, it changes your point of view for example. Pay attention to your surroundings. Some of the environment can be interacted with, and sometimes you need to do so to progress further into the house.

Tips:
- Read all notes you come across. Besides story telling, they sometimes provide essential hints and clues on how to progress.
- Interact with everything.
- Revisit old areas whenever possible, as much as possible. Sometimes the environment changes after certain events, and can help you discover new areas.

That's all, enjoy. Hopefully I succeed in scaring you!

UPDATE 7/14 (now live):

- Intro is a tad bit longer
- Key is easier to get
- Fixed a typo
- The note in the room with the chair no longer disappears
- The ghost no longer reappears
- Fixed the problem with the note animations being interrupted

Thanks for reporting these problems, notify me if I have created any new ones!

The ending scared whatever was left of me!!!! It nearly gave me a heart attack! XD
Other than that this was a great game! The scares were properly placed, graphics okay, puzzles challenging but fun! Keep it up!

Awesome!! Very creepy game, scared me a little bit. Not that perfect game just because of graphics and effects, but that was quite good. I solved the puzzles very easily, so I recommend harder ones next time (?). The ambient was pretty scary, and this was very good for the course of the story, which was very original. I liked it very much, voted 5/5 . Just wasn't expecting that ending xD! Great job, keep doing more games!

Quite creepy! I usually hate playing horror-type games because I get so scared, but i decided to play your game & I'm glad I did. It was really creepy and I really enjoyed it. I had to turn my sound down at the end because I was too scared! :)

This game has quite an interesting story to it. It certainly peeked my interest as I was playing it. The quiet/slow start helps build up the suspense and fear as things begin happening. The thing that freaked me out the most was [spoiler] the room with the doll after the person appears.
The game doesn't jump out as amazing, but it is fun and the story is rather different than other games. I congratulate you on making an original story and experience.

This is a good screamer game. Most of it was easy, except for the pentagram puzzle. It took a few tries to figure it out. The medals work, and I earned them all. Very nice work, will there be a sequel?

Not exactly a screamer... but, there will most likely be an indirect sequel some time in the future.
