Plot: A young man named Avi Otus is called to the old house by his Aunt. He looks to find her and figure out whats going on in this standalone first chapter of a Gameboy game. 


  1. Multiple random events.
  2.  Jump scares.
  3. A cat.
  4. Talk with death.
  5. A custom color pallet when playing online or on a gameboy color.
  6. Currently available for ROM download on my Itch.io page so you can play chapter 1 on the go.
  7. A chair that makes you invisible while you sit in it.

This is the first game I've made in GB Studio. I am now working on Chapter 2 and 3. I love feedback.

I'm still fixing a few bugs and glitches as well as issues with audio. if you spot one please feel free to let me know so I can fix it.

If you have trouble starting a new game press the A button and wait for the menu. if you give it a moment it should let you start it. 


  • WASD or Arrow keys to move
  • A: Alt, z, j
  • B: control, k, x
  • Start: Enter
  • Select: Shift

You can also check my itch.io page for information on the full version when it releases. I'm currently overhauling it and adding more chapters.

short but sweet. horror doesn't always have to be a long story. sometimes it's a simple as paying respects to the deceased

By now the game is fricking fun and nice and with nice graphics, just the music that is kind shit and boring, so one more thing to improve is that.

Cara porque tem tanto dialogo isso chega a ser irritante

how do i get in the basement?? also rlly nice!

It's pretty good but there's something wrong with the saving system.

LynxIeles responds:

What exactly happens for you when you save? also what system are you playing it on because there was an issue for some people where if your device clears it's cache files it'll sometimes toss the save files as well. This seemed to happen more regularly on cell phones but has occurred as well on some computers.
