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!!

the walkthrough helped me a lot. ADVICE FOR NEW PLAYERS: save your game or you might have to start from the begining

Thanks for the feedback!

Loved the graphics, story, and gameplay. Spoiler alert? .......
the part were you can die and have to start over was annoying. I didn't expect that so hadn't saved.

Nirag responds:

Thank you! Sorry for that, I didn't implement autosave so you need to save manually from time to time.

I love this game but i felt it was just a bit too vauge at points but most p a c's are like this but solid game good job BUT you did put a walk though so thanks for that

Nirag responds:

Thank you! Yeah, I put a walkthrough because at one point I got worried that the game could be too obscure at some points... glad it helped!

I'm am so sad that I completed this game, I've literally got absorbed into the story of it and it has kept me on the edge of my seat.

All I can say to the creator is that you did an amazing job without having to go above and beyond like with what you would see in most pixel games.

I'm excited that you've made more than just this one because now I know from just playing this game what I can expect in all your other ones; so now I can't wait to start playing those too.

Keep doing what your doing because not many possess the same kind of gift and talent that you have as an game creator.

Nirag responds:

Thank you very much!!! What you said means a lot to me, I hope you'll like my next games!

could have added auto save
