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 atmosphere of this game is great. I had chills run all over a couple times (or more). It seems as if the animation was edited photos mixed with original animation. I have never cared for this because it makes everything feel out of place. At least, in other games. But here the photos were appropriately edited to reduce that effect and I enjoyed, though cringed at, the creepy artwork.

In the way of constructive criticism, I think there are too many scenes with no interaction and though they do add to the atmosphere, It seems to make the game feel sort of "thin" so to speak. I read in the update that the key was made easier to find. But with so much of this game's progression hinged on a couple keys and number sequences, then they should to be harder to get to. One more thing: background music/sound was missed. Creepy random noises throughout the game would have added alot (like whispering, wind, footsteps, creaking floorboards).

Overall, a very good game. And the P&C horror genre needs more talented designers like this, because its seriously lacking.

Not a bad game. Theres a few bugs that stop you doing certain things. Door 3 with the code the door don't allow you to press keypad. had to refresh game to get past that. Same with the trapdoor and pentagon. Finualy made it through the game. didn't like how things you need appeared later made it far to easy. The Cult guy at end made me jump lol. Worth 4 stars however.

OMG THAT GUY!!! Hahah!

Great game, had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Some confusing puzzles, and could use a little more of those, but that's just me in loving mind straining puzzles. The ending really got me, I have to give that one to you! Never jumped out of my seat so high and never clung to the ceiling like a cat before so good job on that! XD Also a great amount of scares, not too much, not too little, and not as cheesy as most horror game pop-ups. Great job! Now time to go look at a ton of cute stuff before I sleep at night hahah!
