Hi Salik 

Very well made dark story

I got true ending so I am guessing the other endings are even darker,

I do not think my sensitivity can handle it.😪

Every maps are so very well made, it is amazing.

Great job.🙏

Hi, can I ask you how to get the 5th false ending? I got the "friend" and "painted reality" ones and saw on youtube "derivation" and "revelation" (along with the true one)... but I miss the last one.



Anyway, very good game.

When you leave the house, (in the forest) carrying the baby. Go straight down, into the fire.

(To be exact, you're backtracking from where you entered the forest. But you will see a fire blocking your way.)

Bump into this fire again and again, until you cross through it.

And just follow the path, to the 5th False Ending.

And I'm super happy you're liking the game. And that you find it interesting enough to see all the endings.

Thank you so much, Kahnwald.

Hi! I just played this game, did a bunch of endings, not all of them yet ^^ my favorite is false #2 friend. I wish there was a computer in the game to insert the flash drive ^^

Anyway I thought it was pretty interesting, I especially like the visual effects and their unpredictability!

Ohhh, that's an interesting idea!

I thought about adding a new ending when I release this game on steam. And you just gave me an idea for it. 

Thank you!

another comment i would like to give is consider a more direct approach. i think games such as these tend to rely very heavily on atmosphere and the use of the "unreliable witness" storytelling mechanic, hence my suggestion at a game engine that allows a more convincing environment to immerse the player. it would also be a better idea that the player not see the PC at all, keep the PChar ambiguous, that kind of thing.

Oh hello, Audze. So happy you played the game. 

I completely understand what you mean. And I see how first person can make this sort of experience more immersive, with atmosphere, and with suspense. So I'll consider it.

Thank you for your honest thoughts & suggestion, Audze. 

And thank you so much for playing and rating!

hi, i personally think this game would be more effective as a first person narrative. currently the game lacks the suspense and alot of the surroundings are frankly not engaging (it's the rpgmaker thing, please reconsider another engine). i think it's very well thought out effort storywise, the gameplay itself however doesn't do it much justice. Good effort either way, i gave it 5 stars.

I am unable to extract the file and it asks me what do i want to use to open it whenever i click on it.

It looks like you don't have any unzipper installed on your PC, Meric. 

To extract .rar files, you first need an unzipper like winrar. 

Once you've installed winrar. Simply right click the .rar game file, and click 'Extract here'.

okay i'm just used to extracting .zip files thanks for responding.

Of course.

Hit false end 4, Revelation, and tried to "rebirth" to before my choice so I could stay on script, but it put me after that choice.  Talking to the guy again went the same way, and didn't even let me escape to the main menu while the dialog was continuing, so I had to force close.  I'm not willing to restart from the beginning, so I guess that's it.  Pretty disappointing, honestly.

Completely understandable. 

And thank you so much for playing and commenting!

You may or may not play this game again. However, I wanted to take the time to say "thank you" to you for your review and comment.

I have now patched and fixed the issues you've had.


I have updated the game, removed the autosave that happens when player reaches a false ending scene.

That way, the player won't have to replay the game all over again after making a wrong choice. And can continue from before the last choice was made.

And I have also added an 'experimental-but mostly working' skip/game speed up option that the player can activate by pressing 'Q' or 'pageup' key. To skip through the scenes that you have already seen.


Anyways, thanks to you and your comment, the game is slightly better. And player would have a better experience playing through. So, thank you Alectric

I have had to remove your game from the Interactive Fiction Jam due to evidence that it wasn't made within the 7 days before the jam or during the jam.
