This was great. You knew something was about. Just not where or when it would show up. Good suspenseful game.


thank for this game !

This was pretty solid. There were some crashing issues I encountered though, whatever version of unreal engine 4 this is on had some problems. Made a video on it.

Great game. Scared me a good few times.

This game is so creepy, I really love it. (=^ ◡ ^=)

(=^ ◡ ^=)

love the game thank you so much :):):):)

The singing was a great addition lol.  Great game overall, it was fun to get both endings.


Was I eaten? Did I eat them? I'm honestly not to sure but here we are

hope you enjoy, your game starts at 3:17

I really enjoyed this game! The style was nice and I liked that it didn't take itself to seriously. I lot of similar short horror games take themselves to seriously and it just comes across like they're trying to hard. this was really enjoyable and well made overall!

HEY! thanks for the awesome video and the hilarious dead pan seriousness to your commentary. glad you enjoyed the game and thanks for the compliments!

yo, this game was player by markiplier lol

Simple but beautiful!

Hey Everyone! My Dream is to become King of YouTube one day! I've uploaded a video of this amazing, Phenomenal and super fun game! Thank you so much for creating a game with super fun mechanics man!

We had fun even if it was very glitchy!


i'm sorry about all the problems that were had, the game is in a very glitchy state but i'm very happy for the video either way! it was great

Gave it a go...


thank you so much for the video! the segment at the end is great! love to get such great detailed feedback! as its my first game its always nice to know what the players think. thank you for a great video!

Love me a good pixelated horror so of course I played this! Got me good with the scares! Loved the mechanic of actually having to swing the axe! Nice touch! Your game is at 12:45 

thank you so much for the kind words and the video! it means a lot!

No problem! Look forward to more games! 

Hey I played your game as part of my twitch stream! I really enjoyed this game because it kept me guessing and on edge the entire time. Falling unexpectedly and ominous entities did the trick for me. Also, I really like your art style. Was it really done in MS Paint? 

I read further you used asperite. Good stylistic choice, it for sure sets you apart!

i was fiddling a lot around with tools, my original intention was to only use 3d paint to limit myself for the 3d models, and use ms paint for textures. though with a lot of technical difficulties i made a mix between using blender and 3d paint and asesprite. thank you so much for the compliments and video, it means a whole lot for me.

Fun little horror game! Love the art style!

thank you for the video and support! 

Did not cut short but in pieces. Fun game and spooked me a couple times. Nice catch!

thank you for the video and kind words! it means a lot

yooo!, i want the chords to the good ending song so i can play it on piano, because that would sound awsome.

I can't play this game because it launches SteamVR and then closes itself. Looks good from the screenshots though.

hi, i'm sorry about that, i don't know why that happens..

Funniest and scariest indie game to see so far. Loved it!

thank you for an amazing video and comments! it means a lot to me

I LOVE this sound design dude! Awesome work!

thank you so much, music and sound is what i know the best, so its very nice having it being complimented!

Awesome Game, I love the style and shortness of the game. Not too many jumpscare, not too little of this, this short game is one to remember. Good Job!

thank you so much! it means a lot to heat that!

That thunder in the beginning scared the crap outta me, not gonna lie! I love the feel and look of the game, and the mechanics were smooth. For some reason, having objects easily breakable and able to be flipped over is very satisfying hahaha also the dance session at the end was nice!

Great work!


thank you so much for the awesome video and funny gameplay! sorry about the lightning! c: 
and thank you for all the kind words too! 

Hi men, really good work on this game, the jumpscares are well placed and it made me feel kinda incomfortable sometimes, but i was wondering: what did you use to make the game graphics (i mean like walls, table, paintings, etc..) cause i'm really bad at making my games graphics so i could use some help (it's okay if you don't want to share your methods, i totally understand that). Have a nice day ! ^^ 

i don't know which engine you uses, or what you specifically mean by graphics, but for the rendering i used ps1 post rendering effect in unreal engine through a youtube tutorial. and for the general looks i used blender for the meshes (spent minimal times modeling as its my worst field, but i think it added to the general looks) and for the textures i used asesprite.

Okay thanks, that's all i wanted to know, i use Unity as game engine so it'll maybe be a different process but it still help me, thank you man, and really good game ^^ !

I loved this game! The style, the environment, and the cute little nods to the developers in-game, you can really tell this was a labor of love made by passionate game devs. I really enjoyed playing it, though my only gripe was it not having a crosshair or center dot. For a game that relies on picking up stuff, this really frustrated me because I can't tell where I'm pointing at half the time, causing difficulty in picking up objects. Anyway, great game, looking forward to more projects!

Please check out the video (Game starts at 15:56) and my channel: VladMan.

Thank you!


Did you have any trouble installing it? The thing just goes all the way around like it's installing it but then it said install again.


Thank you so much for the feedback, sadly i can't update or fix it up on the game as i don't have my rig anymore. but for future projects i will definitely remember this. thank you for the video 


hi! and sorry for the late reply! i take all of these critiques close to me and i will remember to think about them when i make my next game! so thank you for the video and all of it! 

this is gonna be a great horror game

SKIP TO 5:23 FOR CUT SHORT. Art style is great. Scary even if not 3D. The design of the setting was well thought out. The creature also looked pretty unique to the game and was also quite scary. I like how you slowly uncover what's going on. I especially loved the climactic part of the game. It makes it feel more complete. The grabbing mechanic was WEIRD. And the keys kept disappearing. Bonus points to the pictures of the (devs)? AND THE SURPRISE IF YOU GET A BAD ENDING. Got both endings in mine. 


That was a really good game. I liked the art style.

thank you for such nice compliment and such an amazing video, enjoyed it a lot!


I really enjoyed this game! More so then a lot of others I've played so far, I'm not sure if it was th setting of the game or the PS1 style graphics but I really liked it. I accidentally found what happens when you die off camera (Really loved it) XD Also I really liked the music as well! Keep up the fantastic work!


thank you so much! love the video and your style, it was a blast to watch and i left you a like for support! keep up the good work my man

This was so much fun! I had some issues with the game trying to launch my VR so I had to uninstall Oculus to get it to work but man was it worth it :)

thank you so much, and sorry for the vr thingie, glad you went so far just to try the game, loved the video, so i dropped a like!

im glad i figured out the issue because I would have had to miss out on an awesome game! Thanks for checking out the video! I wish you the best of luck in your future games! :)


yeah, super scary and i like the retro look

thank you so much!

sure, if you like please rate my game, i appreaciate it: https://mehrdadsh.itch.io/eli-was-sad


Very fun! You definitely got me a few times with those jump scares, and it made me way more nervous rounding corners!

I also loved that I would sometimes be flung across the room if I walked across an item. I know that obviously was not intentional, but it broke the tense atmosphere and definitely helped me relax. If just a little ;) <3

yeah, i thought it would be fun to have some physics in the game, to loosen up the mood and keep it fun and enjoyable. thank you so much for the feedback and the support, and kind words. and thank you for playing!
