A short horror story in a pseudo Lovecraftian vein.

A detective is hired to investigate the kidnappings of several children.

Hi. I can open the game but when I hit start a bunch of errors pop up.
Got it working now will come back later.

Wow this game is pretty creepy with the creepy animations and intense creepy music. The mysterious exposition hooks you in.

I like how the truck and the ice cream truck driver flicker. I think the ice cream truck driver is actually a good person and the kids are evil. Does the story continue? What was the point of smelling the clothes?

I'm glad you liked it!
The flickering was a fun thing I added. I'm glad someone noticed and appreciated it :3
As far as the story continuation goes, it may get a second part! We'll have to seeee.
The shirt smelling was just the Acolyte being weird.

What a fun dose of mystery and horror! The Lovecraft-inspired "hero" is a great character. I loved the character artwork; it reminds me of a cross between Norman Rockwell and Picasso. Great music, too. Thank you!
