  1. I'm definitely intrigued! However, I have a hard time with how he described the goals. It sounds like there is no such thing as a happy story here. One person succeeds means everyone else suffers. I'm not sure I want to play a game where the dad writes a great book (and hey, maybe the wife sells some great art too) but the marriage falls apart and the child has nightmares for the rest of his life because his parents have a fight and left on bad terms. Doesn't sound like something I want to be responsible for. Conversely, I don't want to be the reason he and his son get along, but his career is ruined by a bad book. I'd need assurances that overall positive results are possible.

  2. How long is the full game? 4-5 hours or more? 'Cause it's looks interesting, but I don't want to spend 15 Euro for a pretty small game

  3. I would definitely buy it if it's released on Linux

  4. This seems amazing, and I'm thankful for the demo, but I'll be damned if I wasn't waiting the whole time for him to get caught and cause a mass panic in the house.

  5. THis game looks really interesting definitely a day one buy. Hope he doesn't go ape shit and cancel for feeding the trolls.

  6. This looks truly inspired. I've watched both videos provided on Steam Greenlight and you've definitely got my vote. I'll be playing this either way though 😀

  7. So whats the purpose of the game, to make it work between people living in the house? No screaming or scaring? Seems lame..

  8. If you need to upgrade your pc for this game, it must have been built about 10 years ago or something.

  9. Actually, about that Shining comment, what if that was an option? You can make positive OR negative descisions to help the family, OR scare the family. Maybe it could be a bonus mode, an unlockable, or just there from the start. I'm just spitballing ideas here. It could add replayability or attract different people.
    Also I'm having trouble reading the text above their heads. Its too small and blends. Try adding a contrast color as an outline to the text.

  10. as a novelist, this sounds like my life…minus the big house and a ghost who helps me…kindof depressing

  11. Pirate Cove….any fellow creepypasta fans here?

    All jokes aside, I'm suddenly really liking this game.

  12. I like unique games like this. Games like The Walking Dead, Journey, Flower, Thomas was Alone and many others.

  13. I'd pay money for it. Breath of fresh air compared to all the FPS shit that gets churned out every year.

  14. It's easy to destroy and ruin, but difficult to rebuild and create. There would be hardly any challenge and it goes against everything the game is about.
