I have no idea what was really going on, but it was damn creepy nonetheless. Good stuff!

A fun little story, really enjoyed this one, I liked the gradual descent into madness.
I knew there was something up with those purple plants.
Atmospherewas so good. Also loved the story. Keep on it.
Great game my dude, my favourite PS1 styled horror yet! I'm going to post a video of it shortly! :)
Aww Man! that was Awesome! I had fun playing this game. even though it was weird at some point and a bit uncomfortable, this game got me good man. i like the voice acting. for me it was really smooth. i hope i can play more works from you my guy!
p.s game starts at 0:19
We found your secret, David. ;)
Just finished playing this and I have to say the tension was great! I really enjoyed the growing eerieness that kepy coming. It's simple, but it didn't need much else to make me wary of going to the lighthouse. Great job!
yooooo this game was mad creepy check out the react!!
I wish there was more. This game is a masterpiece.
i love this game sure its short but its so damn good
I played it before the update and the upadte really adds more to the game like the creature sliding under the bad was a really nice touch. Would love to see more things like that
I really enjoyed playing this game a lot. There was a story told here that was dropped in a subtle way, which is pretty difficult to do, and I loved how the game looked. This was a really great game.
Pretty cool game, I quite enjoyed it and I liked the style. I made a video of it if anyone would like to check it out.
Does this have anything to do with the, 'smalls island incident'?
Really enjoyed the game! Loved the atmosphere that was built, gave me serious uncanny valley vibes.
Game was really good, the amount of twists at the end.
Great little game witha nice dark twist. I couldn't get the secret knock on the door thing to work, I counted both the number of clicks and knocks on separate runs and couldn't se a difference. However still a great little experience!
I'm very sorry and thank you for letting me know, a nasty bug I thought I fixed came back and stopped the supersecret from being achievable... I'll leave the details on your youtube comments to not spoil people browsing the store, but thanks a lot for trying it!!
Hey so i can't change the game screen size to 1280x720 i need to change it to that size since the game is to big and it is hard to play the game and i need to see my recording software on my pc when i do a video and i want to play your game so please add something where we can chage the game resolution in like the menu settigns in the game because most games have a menu screen thanks the game looks good btw
Hi! I'm sorry that current resolution doesn't work for you, but we won't be updating the game any further, it was a jam game after all and we are missing basically all menus and settings.
You might be able to force a window mode with different resolution using an external program like D3DWindower but I haven't tested this and might produce errors.
thanks for making
My only complaint for this game is that its too short!!!!! Amen. I discovered this game through Strucci's YouTube channel and I do not regret discovering it. I hope this development team makes more stuff. Game kinda reminds of Lisa: The painful in vibe a-bit.
This was great, horribly oppressive, a little silly, no jumpscares, told a whole story. Awesome work.
I REALLY enjoyed it. Though I am very confused as to what was really happening and for the life of me I can't figure out. Dev, please skip to the near end of the video and address some questions? :)
Had fun playing this game! Great work on it!
I just played this, and this island.... definitely disturbed me lol
Hi, I'm currently making a series where I play through every game submitted to the Wretched Weekend Jam, and yours was the 51st game I played!
The game was really good, one of the best entires in the jam!
The art style was really fitting to the PS1 aesthetic, the main mechanic in the game is simple but very enjoyable to watch unfold, and the game has a creepy and intriguing story! Great work!
I'm not sure if I played pre-update (I think I did), and I didn't really fully follow the story, but I knew straight away I didn't trust that cat.
Here's the video for those interested (time stamps in description):
So, as I understood, there are no "Lovecraftian Horrors" on the island. Everything is a symbolic representaion of our protagonist's depression over the loss of his son and his mundane repetitive job, which drives him to commit suicide in the end... Or there is actually something on the island, and it plays with the hero's mind, revealing all his regrets and insecurities to drive him insane...
Will there be another update after this?
This game needed this update it was great. :) so glad u published it. Is there any way in a later patch you could put the cut Npc back in to the game. I was always wondring why there was a 4th house.
Nope this is the last update, you'll have to speculate who that 4th person could have been! :D
small island woes made it into games of terror! also loved more disturbing it got as it went along nice!
