Thank you for this! Finally a game, where I can shoot, not run and hide like a little girl!! I'm missing this kind of survival horror games. Enjoyed it very much!( got all the pawns too :) )
Controls are brutal at some points, but I loved the atmosphere!
Warning to viewers: SPOILERS IN VIDEO!
.Wow! This game pulled me into its story, and I became so immersed! It was pretty dark, and I enjoyed playing through and analyzing its symbolism. Incredible job on this one! I love retro-styled horror.
More than just a horror game, had the narrative and real tension building stuff especially in the office. Loved it. I look forward to going back and playing the first game!
Check out my video.
Going through my backlog uploads, and this awesome game is in it, reminded me to go finish that Maleficium Demo! Thanks for your work
Full Play No Commentary
Hyo awesome ģame!!!i really liked the game, very interesting story from the first game, i hope you continue with this project you did a good job
Keep it up
I still don't understand these numbers, Mason.
this is like cry of fear game
Is there a save feature?
Very creepy game. Great work!
The story telling in this was really artistic are super fun to go through; the change in pace from the artisticness to the literal horror mannequins was super unexpected but still well pulled off and really, really scary. I personally thought that the story wasn't as well put together in this as compared to The Body; it felt like it was jumping boats a lot and some things felt a bit too ambigious or artistic; like the electric sparkles and Geiger counter which didn't feel like it fit into the place at all, but I still think that the scary office part was well done! Overall it was really scary and pretty fun to play!
Very awesome little game! I have yet to play episode one but def going to if its anything like this one. The atmosphere was really well done and that noise that those guys made when they ran after me was awful lol Great job!
Truly impressive stuff here.
Great atmosphere but could use a little balancing. I was not touched by an enemy until the boss. And while some enemies did make me jump I never used more than two bullets on an enemy so was always pretty stacked.
A truly terrifying tale. The gameplay was fun and unique, while the atmosphere and sounds made me jump
When will you released Real Stories from the Grave: Episode 3?!
Great concept overall. I love games that do a good job of creating a Silent Hill atmosphere. My only complaint is the controls which makes the game frustrating at times.
The starts is a bit slow, but the office part was pretty scary. Nice game!
SHOOKED THE ENTIRE TIME THANKS LMAO GAME STARTS AT 2:02:30
Skip to 37:48 for Real Stories EP 2!
Odlična igrica, tema i priča je pre dobra, jedva čekam ostatak igrice, sretno sa gradnjom i nadam se da će biti igrica poput ove!
This game is a wonderful horror experience, like every deadbyte game I've played so far. It actually is very smart with the way it builds up to the scares. Very great stuff, keep it up!
did you know that someone else is trying to release or scam people with this? https://deadbirdd.itch.io/real-stories-from-the-grave-ep2-a-date-to-keep
Took me a while to get all the pawns :3
Silent Hill inspired? Oh yeah, does this count as playing in reverse :D
Damn you've really upped the horror from episode 1!! The combination of movement and sound in the office section made me so uncomfortable!! Nicely done!!
HOLLY SHIT THIS WAS GOOD, can't wait for the next volume is another one comes out, loved the story telling, and when it got dark I nearly shit my pants
The game is too difficult to be a horror game, the shotgun shells almost never hit properly, ti shoot them sometimes and do no damage, i mean the office part was scary at first, but then it just got annoying. I feel like this was a good game, but then it just goes downhill the more you play. And a bossfight? wtf? idk thats just my opinion. its a good game, but the whole health bar shotgun aspect of it kinda ruined it in my opinion
Quite a tale down into the descent of madness. I like how you a unaware of the spiral into insanity the entire time, thinking it is just monsters
This is my favorite game on Itch.io currently. Finally, a fun horror game with actual gameplay and challenge. This was refreshing to play, more fun horror games like this and I'll love you forever. Don't read comments and play it, and if you're scared then I'll play it for you. ;)
Pretty good game! 8/10
Reminded me a lot of silent hill which was a bonus in my mind. There were a few issues. It wasn't always straight forward where you needed to go in town. Thankfully, not a big map so easy enough to figure out. Out of all retro games, the start of the horror in the office got me LITERALLY crying in panic and fear. A good example of a solid idea with great execution. Definitely wanna play more episodes!
