Written & made by me. The name's 'Salik Hussain', nice to meetcha!

The complete credits (with links) are mentioned in a document right beside the .exe file, and inside the game. (I'm skipping from mentioning them here... because the list is a bit long.)

Extra Rant:  

So!... ummmm... hmmm. Hello? Is someone reading this? 

I started this as my first game dev project, about four months ago (January 2018). I wanted to keep it super short, but the story became a bit long... so I chose to cut it down and release it in small episodes. The one you see on this page, is the very first. And in total, there would be about three episodes. 

For now... until I get more stuff to rant about... I'll just, stop. 

Want to make a let's play video?
~THAT would be SO awesome! Go right ahead!

Thank You for the Sub. As thanks, my friend and I are planning on playing some of your games, starting with your earliest work. Sorry if we talked too much/missed things that were important. It was entertaining, creative, and informational. Here is the video if you want to check it out: https://youtu.be/revrUGzxsC0

Woah... this is awesomesauce. 

Happy you played through the game, and seemed to be having fun. 

Because I... was having loads of fun, seeing and hearing you guys play it. And as you discussed the topics & ideas being brought up.

And so thank you PawpsiCherry (and 'thank you' to your  friend), for breathing a new life and perspective into this game. With your playthrough. 

Thank you thank you thank you.


Hi :) I had played False Server some months ago and thought to give a try to another one of your game but it seems my computer is too weak to run this one 😓

It looks great though 😊


I made some bad decisions with my older games. And so they don't perform well... (T_T)

Thank you for giving it a try and commenting about it Anwynn. 


I cannot speak for someone else but I noticed the reason why this kind of things happen in my computer even if I do not understand it,

Game exe with a big amount of mo gives me this issues, I had this before with other games, It is not your fault 😊

This was more interesting than I initially thought! The game feels a little unpolished at times, and the colors are not always great, but mostly, it all fits the themes pretty well. The whole story was pretty interesting and made me interested in playing the next episode as well! Overall, good work! :-)


Loved the atmosphere and generally trippy experience this gives!


Interesting story and I love the mapping and effects.
