THE STORY… sort of

Adrian has just moved into an old mansion with his girlfriend, Rebecca. After another couple hurriedly leave the mansion, a spooky backstory about the house is revealed, and some seemingly unexplainable events occur, Adrian comes to a conclusion...

He realises that he is in a horror game. A badly-written horror game.

And he wants to leave...

  • Other features: It's a mysteryyyy...

Omg this looks really interesting. Love the idea of the Second Chance button... I die a lot in horror games xD Really interested to see how horror and comedy will be mixed together.

First impressions... well, the stuff above. Also, is there a significance to "HANA" from the cover image? (I might have just missed something obvious because I'm stupid, sorry xD)

Anyways, good luck for your project <3
PS: The comment lines with the (idek what that is at the end) messing up the text is creepy already ;;

You had me sold at "he's in a badly-written horror game".

First impressions? I don't know. It's absolutely brilliant. I love the idea, and the lack of jumpscares, and the second chance button. I almost never download horror-- but I'm invested in this enough that I'll download it at a heartbeat. I'd even embrace any twists that might come this way. I love the premise.

This looks so exciting! I generally avoid anything tagged "horror", but this game seems really meta and I love love love meta games. I'm really looking forward to what you guys can accomplish, and I'll definitely give this a try at the end of March. I think I'll really appreciate the second chance button, because I will probably die a lot.
if it's "badly written horror" it won't give me nightmares, right? >_<;

Also I'm guessing that "Hana" will end up being something significant. Looking forward to any twists you throw at the reader!
Best of luck~

Oh man this looks amazing!!! The first post was already really fun to read and cleverly formatted, I'm definitely looking forward to the game! The "What is the game's twist" >[redacted] joke was so good omg. The second chance button is definitely a feature I'm thankful for because I usually die a lot in games like these huhu. Best of luck to your team (and to Adrian and Rebecca as well)!

A game in a game, and not just any game, a badly written game.
That's it; I'm a fan!

Looking forward to see more of this :D

Your games are always so creative, so I can't wait to see what you come up with. Horror games are way better without jump scares, IMO, so I'm glad you're not relying on them. We'll see how far I can get without dying hehe.

You had me at "horror comedy, no jump scares" :). I'm a big fan of stuff like Cabin in the Woods, Shaun of the Dead, and Evil Dead 2.

This premise sounds different than any of the other horror comedies I've seen, so I'm excited to see what you do with it. Best of luck!

When I saw the OP picture in Twitter I thought it was so cool but I got the impression the game was going to be called "Hana"
Good luck with your project! I think the Horror/Comedy tag is getting everyone XD (In a good way!)
