Cool artwork,sounds and story. Nuff said...

For such a short development time, this game turned out really eerie. Like the narrative gives shivers. Thanks for making it I enjoyed. Here's my video on it if you wanna check it out

Great little horror story and nice artwork!

the graphics are pretty!

I had a great time with this game! I swear I looked back a couple times because of how unsettling it was! If you're curious about my experience, then you can check out the video on my channel or watch the video I posted here!

I believe this is a demo game,it's really a tough story, I hope it has a deep backstory.
(+1)

I admit. I am usually not someone who plays these type of games but... this really was interesting.

😊👍

I love the game, the art was just- so beautiful!

The game is very deep and the intention really shows. The only drawback is that the game is quite short.

(+1)

played the game and love it just sad it so short love to see more.

(+1)

Buenas! Ofrezco el gameplay en español. Una historia profunda, junto a un excelente arte!!!
(+1)

I enjoyed the game, loved how you only had a few things to work with yet still told a great story, and the twist at the end was great


(+1)

I loved this game. 10/10 keep up the good work!
(+1)

really nice short VN, would love too see it expanded on

(+2)(-1)

Lovely game!

(+1)

A very nicely done and creepy VN scene with a lot of promise for the future. I'm not sure the choice adds a whole lot - either put more in or less. :)  Anyway, I hope your next project goes as well!

I souled my soul UWU!

dont let me install cus the thumnail

(+3)

i clicked because the woman in the thumbnail looked attractive but other than that this is awesome

(+1)

FUCKING AWESOME

(+2)

If you ever decide to expand this into a longer visual novel, I will absolutely play it!

(1 edit) (+2)

My first visual novel game. Was pretty lit🐣

Also made a video feel free to check it out🌚

(+1)

With this compact story there are endless possibilities. A bit more polishing and endings and this could be one of the best visual novels on itch.io. Also it is worthy of the horror game title thanks to the uneasy feeling while playing the game. Keep going!


MY PLAYTHROUGH OF THE GAME:

(+1)

Awesome game! I like the detail that you can't visit the mirror twice too!

(+1)

-Made a Video (00:06 / 1st Game).

(+1)

Great game.  I don't usually play visual novels however I gave this one a go.  Very well put together and enjoyable.  Great character and awesome story line.  Keep up the good work :) 

(+1)

I love the story I would love it more when we could know more about Ivy past. I was hoping for diffrent endings. 

(-3)

The story of this game is definitely pretty decent, it felt a bit rushed which I guess is thanks to the word count limit, there wasn't much tension or emotion in the air, the ghosts recounts of her final moments or Ivy's thrillseeking journey needed more depth to them. I also found the music to be mismatched with the overall tone and scene, the beginning of the track worked well but the orchestral part ruined it and it felt like it cut out at the wrong places when building suspense.

Other than those few issues, the game is definitely good especially for how much time and limitations were paired with the making of the game. I'd rate this game a solid 6.5/10 for sure.

(+1)(-2)

I really enjoyed this game <3 Keep it up!
(+1)(-2)

I really liked the overall theme

(+2)

Amazing story, I love how intense it git with just one sprite as well as how the music helped amplify it. The ghost's story was heartbreaking but also terrifying, especially with the people she preys with. I hope Ivy can get serious help, especially when she was given a chance to survive through that entire ordeal.

(+1)

Good stuff! The sound and visual design were a great match. Very somber and eerie.

(+1)(-2)

I really enjoyed what you put together here, it was short but lots of love and care was put into it, i could tell, definitely made me tense up just a little, keep up the good work

I also did a video on it, hope you enjoy it :)

(+1)(-1)

good novel

(+2)

This was a pretty solid little story. Definitely on the sad/creepy side. And the games art syle was good as well. Made a video on it. 

(+1)

Is there only one ending? I don't know if I'm missing more of the game or not cause when I try to play it again from the menu I get "I can't!" 

There is currently only one ending, but that may change in future updates.

To play again, you just need to quit and relaunch :)

Thanks for playing!
