Living in the street is tough especially at winter. You find an abandoned building nearby, but after you enter, the door disappear...

A horror escape game with unique greyscale artworks. Solve the mystery and escape the building before the spirits overwhelm you. Or are you sure you can escape?

Walkthrough is inside the game.
Please turn on your speaker / headset and plays at night for best result.

The ending was terrible.....

It needs a better ending.. It was interesting until The end..

A little broken but..

It's a game worth playing. On the screen with the spider, like others have mentioned, just use the right click trick to get past it. The music was very fitting and not overwhelming. The graphics weren't the best, but, it didn't detract from anything. This was an overall good game. If these two elements were improved upon in a sequel, you would have a great game. The only tips I could give for the next one, if you so choose, make it a bit longer and multiple endings would be great.

Good Idea.

BUT, broken gameplay. I tried a test of following your walkthrough, seems that I am unable to pick up the bone to do you know what.
I am simply reverted back to the box with the "eaten by ****** nightmare." and have to try again. I've attempted to pick the bone up repeatedly for seven minutes now, and it really shouldn't be THAt difficult to get it for a humble point and click game.

I'd look into that further. There seems to be an issue with that since it's a game stopping problem.

Other than that, decent art, good soundtrack and audio, and pretty well written from what I read so far.
It would definitely rate a 7 or 8 if I didn't have the problem I had.

no epilogue? no ending cutscene? just the tentacles?


the giant spider puzzle can be solved by rightclicking and positioning the cursor over the bone. then left click twice and you got the bone without touching the net.

I like the creepy, dark athmospheare. The drwings are sketch-like, that reflecs the uncertain, blurry environment. Everything looks unreal, from another world- outstanding artwork! There are enough hints to solve the riddles, yet they are not too obvious.
I'm not sure if I've completed the game. It recommends to read the journal and to look if others have discovered more. Is there anything more? I can't find anything... Here it would be better to be more concrete, since the game is already over.
The game is awesome, it's a pitty that it is so short. I hope there will be a sequel!
