This game will NOT run correctly in Safari or Microsoft Edge.

Holy crap! Front page already? Thanks Tom!

Flatwoods is a small adventure game with two endings, built in the RPG Maker MV engine. You are Lemon, a small child that feels a great need to uncover the mystery of the "shooting star" that has just flown over your home and landed somewhere in the woods nearby. Loosely based on the story of The Flatwoods Monster.

This is my first game designed to be a quaint experience (around 30 minutes) for the player, and an educational experience for myself.

Controls: This game supports full mouse control and xbox360, xbone controllers. For keyboard play the arrow keys control Lemon and Z to interact with objects, Shift to run and X or Esc will bring up the menu.

For the best gaming experience I recommend downloading the executable for PC from:

nice reference to the batter from OFF also very good game

MORE. Played this in Edge with no problems, except at the end. I had all the metal pieces... but when I clicked on the tile right in front of the eyes, the screen just went black. SO CLOSEEEe. ;O

GIVE ME MOREEEEEEEE. MOARRRRRRR. I LOVe everything about this, except all the reading. less reading, more goodies and keys!

I like the dirty jokes. I'd like to say I didn't spend all this time reading what he had to say about almost every tree, turnip, and whatever else but I did. Morning wood, dirty magazines, and blood on the saw were probably the most memorable.

Ha ha, your the first person to comment on any of that stuff, im glad you enjoyed it.

Well, this will be a hard Rpg to beat over the year, you created your own characters very well and the art style of the cutscenes definitely adds to it being all part of its own little world. If anything would be an issue the sprites did not do it for me and at times it did feel like it was lagging in the beginning, but those are all small nitpicks for an overall good product I did a video review here without ruingin story only very early spoilers and recording was used. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWAzrXGITQY&t=3s
