Author Comments

If you don’t believe in paranormal events, meet the people from White Hill.

It’s been years since all but the daughter in the Smiths’ family were found murdered horrifically. People, however, are now getting antsy as more than one witnesses have seen the silhouette of a little girl standing in the house. James, a bright and eager investigator, has taken the matter in his hands to finally reveal the truth of the horrible night all those years ago.

Great scary game. Curious for the full game!

very nice graphics and ambient sounds, too bad my character started floating vertically away from the screen half way across the game and had to restart, certainly a demo. Loved the way the light oscillates as if you were underwater.

I'd love to see more of this!

The Good:
~Atmosphere
You've hit this right on the head. The ambiance shifts just often enough to keep you alert, and I caught myself turning up the volume to try and make out anything in the whispers.

~Originality
Not very often that I can come across a horror game anymore that uses its own resources very well, and this was a welcome break; the locker holding the medkit was a very nice touch, and the sort of thing I like to see in horror games.

The Bad:
~Intensity
I understand that this is a demo, but at the same time, the ending scene was...lackluster. Before I'd even gotten out of the basement, I'd already predicted that the activity was a demon of some sort, so as soon as I saw the black figure, I already had a pretty good idea what was coming. Killed the delivery, even though your monster has a great design.

~Timing
Most of the minor events (I.E.; box falling, bug on the screen) aren't really given much presence, and don't play much to the advantage of the ambiance. This makes them feel less like spooky occurrences, and more like the house is just falling apart around you.

Promising look, give us more!

The music is great, the story seems interesting, I did have a bit of trouble with the doors on the sides. Luckily I was smart enough to press 'E' to find where the rat went only to open the door. The rat was my favorite, I called him Squeaks, and I just sort of pushed him around until he couldn't go any further. The character itself likes to slide whenever I try to click 'E' on certain items, he just walks past it. Other then that small bit of trouble, very good. I'm playing the intro, and I love the humming, the atmosphere is brilliant.
