Is it really? Cool!
We're glad the game scared you, and it sounds like you like it enough to want to spend more time in our scary little world - great!!

I liked the scenery, the artwork was extremely well done, even the makeup on the actors was really good. Overall, I'm a big fan of these types of games, and yours is one of the better I've seen. I only really had 2 problems with it.

-The timer took away a lot of the atmosphere because it puts the player in more of a "this is a game and I have a goal and a time limit" mindset, and doesn't let them really get into the game as if they were really in this creepy old mansion with these spirits.
-The ghosts popping out. Yes, I jumped at nearly all of them, but the only one that really SCARRED me was the one who DIDN'T pop out. (The one at the bottom of the stairs saying to leave him alone.) Things popping out and making a loud noise are good for a cheap jump or adrenaline rush, but not real "Shit, I'm gonna die in this place." terror.

Next time I'd say just let the player explore the area and complete goals at their own pace. The feeling of being trapped will do the work of making them feel like they need to hurry better than a timer. Also, more atmospheric scares like the little girl singing rather than sudden loud noises. You just set the seed and let the player's mind go crazy with anticipation of danger.

Other than that, great game, sir. You have done extremely well overall.

Thanks so much. This is great feedback, we really appreciate your explanation of what works for you. We, too, like the subtle scare of letting the player's mind do all the work - but we also love to watch our friends jump out of their seats while they play. ;)
We'll definitely keep your comments in mind as we develop new projects.
Thanks again - and we're glad you liked the game!

This game actually made me jump. FIRST TIME. Good job.
