This episode is definitely scarier than the first one. You begin your journey in a library and end up somewhere else. There are scenes that look familiar to you which can bring up a horrified memory (e.g., to go through a 4-digit lock lift in the previous episode) and scenes that are totally new to you. It's useful to talk to another time traveller who will tell you more about the dreamy world.
What is intriguing about this game is that it makes you go deeper and further for exploration. For example, going downstairs and travelling through a forest where there're easy to miss passages to follow through. Thanks to the walk through, I missed a path to the foreshore and didn't know where to get a thread for knitting a bag. And then, there is a frightening moment when one encounters a ghost girl and drops a screwdriver.
Sound and visual effects are great although this is a pixel art game!
I love the ambience. And the game did scare me. I hope you make more !
But i also didn't fount all the notes.
What about an "Noteseeker" ?
As the player finished the game he gets this new item. A small talisman or statue, something like this. It's eyes start glowing if there are still notes in the current room.
I would love to read the full text, but don't want to seek through all the rooms again to find the last 3 notes. That would be too frustrating.
That's a nice idea actually...
Very good ambience. Slick game design. An all-around great game!
Very nice game, liked it a lot.
Liked the mood, sound and the old school design, kind of reminded me of an old game about
some wasteland biker, can't remember the name though. :(
Great puzzles.. not too hard and not too easy, right in the middle..;D
The attic sequence.. or part.. that was great, in games when you see something like that
the first thing you think is "okay, now I'm F%*&%" and you usually are, but here you realize
"oh.. I can actually escape" and I think that was cool thing, but maybe its just me.
And another thing, game kind of reminds the movie "Ring" girl with black long hair, well in middle
of a forest, I'm not saying its bad or good, I'm just saying. :D
But Good job and good luck with the sequel.
Ill give you 4 stars, because I got scared and dropped the fifth. :D
