WARNING for CHROME users: on Chrome, sometimes the game starts with no sound nor music. Just click inside the gamescreen, and after a few seconds sounds should load normally.

NO AUTOSAVE! Remember, this game doesn't auto-save your progress. You need to manually save your game whenever you want: you can do that in the in-game menu (press "W" to access it).

use the "A" key to select the "move" interaction;
use the "S" key to select the "examine" interaction;
use the "D" key to select the "use" interaction;
use the "W" key to open the in-game menu.

If "The Last Door" by TheGameKitchen was "a love letter to Lovecraft", Inherit is my personal love letter to the first installments of "The Last Half of Darkness" franchise.
Inherit is a point'n'click horror game that tries to create the feeling of old-school adventure games. Enter uncle Yorick's and aunt Lydia's mansion, and try to solve the mystery hidden between its walls...

Check "How to Play" before starting a New Game, all controls and interactions are explained there!
Press "F" to toggle fullscreen on/off (recommended)

Thanks to @RainbowCemetery for helping me with a nasty Unity issue!


If you get stuck at some point, here's a text walkthrough:
(it's a direct download from my dumping grounds on NG)


Now, clicking anywhere on the screen when an inventory item is selected no longer deselects the item.
The "Out of memory" error some users reported should now be fixed.
UPDATE 01/18/2019: clicking new game now shows up the "how to play" screen before actually starting. Many people missed the keyboard shortcuts for the interactions, so I did this to avoid misunderstandings about the controls.
UPDATE 01/20/2019: fixed a couple of things regarding books.
UPDATE 01/25/2019: fixed some spelling errors and a minor quirk about a book.

Whoa, Frontpaged! Thank you very much, guys!!

Nirag responds:

Thank you!
There's a link to a walkthrough in the description... I'll pm you about those two though!

Your game making skills have noticeably improved. Keep up the good work!

Thank you very much! :)

Amazing game, 10 out of 10, I didn't expect a point and click to be this good honestly I was just looking for something short and simple with not a lot but this was just gold, too bad I have to sleep late now but meh it was worth it.

The game was amazing, well written, the puzzles were fairly difficult, and I found the easter egg, the only thing I was unable to find was the code to the attic but the walkthrough saved me on that. The easter egg was also very nice but I wished there was some sort of continuation to that (If you find it, fam, there's not a lot to it, it's just cool but no reward nor different ending). I think the writing and just the idea was the best part of this, the art style too but the writing is what mostly makes this gold and it's not the choice the words but that you made a world and shit for this, you were dedicated into making this and that is always appreciated. Great job, couldn't find any flaw myself, besides the charcoal, how was I supposed to know that? I hint would had been nice, and the books are way too damn long but honestly if you made them shorter then the writing and all of that would had been as good, I wanted to finish quickly but I had to read, I just had to because I would miss out on the interesting world and stuff from the game, I could had just skimmed to figure out what to do but I didn't want to.

Part 2 should be main character coming back with these two "creatures" torturing him

Nirag responds:

Thank you very much for the review, I'm glad you liked it!
About the charcoal, you mean that's difficult to spot it when it spawns, or that it's difficult to figure out its use?
Regarding the books, yeah, they're pretty wordy... they were even longer before, I had to cut them to avoid burdening the player with too much text.
I currently have to plans for a Part 2, but your suggestion is interesting, I'll keep that in mind!

Very niceeeeeeeeeeeee!

Thank you very much!
