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...

I absolutely LOVED this game!! Honestly, I loved the story and the originality. It really got me on edge at parts. And I loved the innovative mechanics. I did a let's play on it if you are interested! Great spooky story for just before Halloween :D

Thank you for this amazing experience :)

A unique and beautiful take on a "horror" story. I love every bit of this game. Thank you for giving us this fantastic experience.

Loved this, especially the one bit that I can't talk about because it would spoil things but which actually creeped me right out! I included this in my list of the best free horror games on itch.io, which you can see here:


Good luck with your future projects!

OMG that was brilliant! *-*

Haha, I believe you now Katy133

I like how meta this is. :) Now that you've seen it, should I take it down?

Hello! This is a brilliant game. I read about two sentences into your game summary before immediately downloading it; not only is the game itself great, but the concept is too. While the story line was short (expected of a NaNoRenO), the coding and creativity placed into this blew me away. I found myself genuinely terrified, and it was only 2 pm in the afternoon. The music set the tone perfectly, and I loved the surprises found within "glitches" of the game. Had this been a bit longer, It would've rivaled the genius of Undertale (granted Toby Fox took three years to make/code his.) This game deserves a whole lot more recognition, and I am definitely recommending this to my friends. Thanks for uploading an amazing game :D


I thought this was just a simple horror game, so when the game suddenly closed I thought it crashed. I opened it again and i was greeted with a pink otome-like menu and i was like??? I must have clicked on the wrong file. But it was the right one and I was so confused. Did something happen to my computer??? Then, it turns out it was all part of the game. THIS IS AMAZING! I definitely got more than what I expected. I look forward to more of your games in the future!!


I thought the idea of the guy who knew he was in a horror game would've been cheesy and dull, but as it kept going...wow. This is a smart, clever game. Awesome job! Can't wait till the next one

I made an account just so I could leave a comment because wow. This is one of the only games to have truly scared me without cheesy jumpscares or gore. I really loved it and how the characters 'jump around', along with how you get to interact with the files. Please make more!


Thank you! Your comment really made my day! ^U^

I definitely have plans to make more games; I want to make a detective game next.

As a major fan of both detective games and this game. You've now gotten me really excited. Either way though, I look forward to seeing what you hold in store in the future.

I can't continue in the game I'm stuck in a loop. I'm pretty sure I know what I need to do but the game wont allow me to do it... I think its a bug...

Edit: Not a bug just confusing/ unclear... I figured it out by watching another person's video but I wish I could have figured it out on my own... T_T
