Love classic ps1 style graphics.. This interesting dark horror game relys on a good story and a suprise ending rather then cheap jump scares. I can appreciate that. Thanks.

This game is exactly what I look for in a horror game!
The entire game you have a feeling someone will get to you, see the body, but it doesn't. Yet, at the end, all unfolds so well, in a dark, disturbing way..
It does not rely on jumpscares, but has this feeling of dread over you, the atmosphere really plays a huge roll, which I love.
Honestly a great game, short, but so well developed towards the end!
As others, I too made a video on my experience playing it. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did, and looking forward to any next volumes!
Really clever, disturbing story, good atmosphere. Short but sweet. My only complaint is that there's one part in the game where I had to watch a video to figure out what to do next; there's an item on the wall that's easy to miss.
i had a blast playing this game also i was not expecting that ending....
I was shocked and tense at the gas station! Thought someone was about to kill me but the ending was good!
A little bit late to the party :( Anyway i like the game, even though there's no jumpscare but its giving me chills. I was so scared while playing this because of how dark the game is. Overall, the game is good. I really like a type of PSX effect games like this one. Great job!
Awesome game! It's short and meaningful, I also recommended it to my friend. Loves how the story unfolds, it's great when you can spend your time playing a game that leaves you something in such a short, no time-wasting span. Well done!
Loved it!!!! I give my elaborate opinion at the end of the video!
JUST POSTED A VID ON IT! GO CHECK IT OUT! THANKS!
Hey I really enjoyed this game. I must admit that twice I've ran in circles trying to find the small hotspot I needed to click, but the narrative made me forgive it all. The way the terrifying story unfolds is simply brilliant.
I've made a video of my playthrough, which would tell a lot more about my interpretation of the conclusion, if only I didn't mute my mic by accident like a complete idiot. Still a solid video if I may say so myself.
Congrats on a great game, can't wait to play what you do next!
CALL NOW AND I'LL TAKE CARE OF ANY LIFELESS HUMAN.
I thoroughly enjoyed this short experience. Especially the twist, it caught me off guard. I look forward to seeing what you guys release next, very impressed by your work!

This game is much *heavier* than most other games I have played. The theme and story was excellent and the low res graphics actually added to the whole atmosphere and story telling. If anything, I felt that the graphics reflected the protagonist's mind at that very moment. Check out my play through below
LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!
Very cool game man loved the twist at the end when you find out why you really need that body. Can't wait for volume 2 this one was great!
thank you for making this game, had lots of fun while playing the game, as I progress during the game, the story got darker and darker,
here is my gameplay.
Great gameplay/walkthrough, thank you. (Morbid game but that's besides the point). :)
well I bought the game but it says there are no available uploads so idk what that means :(
There is no download link?
thank you so much for this great game! I had a lot of fun playing it. Left me questioning what was coming the entire way through! Feel free to check out my experience here:)
Wow... This is impressive. VERY impressive! I absolutely loved it. Very cool story and gameplay. Thank you for making such a cool game. I can't wait to see more of your work.
Loved the new update wish there was more but will keep checking in on this game.
very good game. I like it. There is nothing much to say. I can only say that it is flawless and great. I hope to see more from you in the future :) and btw I really like the story, it is kinda shocking.
btw if you are interested, here is my video:
Really good game very well made keep up the good work :)
I was never expecting to experience what I did, making this game all the better. You’re dropped into a situation where you THINK you know where the story is headed. The longer I played, the more I realized how wrong I was. It’s far more disturbing. Well done!
AMAZING AS FEW ASSETS AND A BLACK AND WHITE GRAPHIC, WHICH EXPLAINS THE NAME OF THE STUDIO HAHAH, THE GAME IS ABLE TO MAKE YOU FEEL GUILTY AND PURSUED BY SOMETHING, IN THE FIRST INSTANT WHEN YOU SEE THE BODY IN YOUR HANDS . . .
Hope Volume 2 comes out soon nonetheless great game and keep up the great work!
Was completely blindsided by that ending! Brilliant little game, looking forward to volume 2!
Pros and cons are sown below. Check out my vid (the game is the second there):
1. I like the style so much! This whole noir theme is awesome. Love it.
2. The plot is unexpectable. It is thrilling and the realization of what you did is powerful. I think that was done perfectly.
3. I love the pacing. First the game creates questions then tension and at the end a strong twist. Such a strong experience for such a short game.
1. Maybe a bit more spooks would be nice. I mean some sounds here and there, more tension at the forest. Maybe you could try adding a feeling of being watches. Maybe the game would benefit from it.
2. The notes at the wall are strange. Like he wanted to remember all of it so hard that he wrote it and put at the wall to watch every time he's descending. Strange. Maybe subtitles would be better or even some voice acting if that is possible for you to do during quarantine.
Had lots of fun playing the game! I think it deserves the best rating and I can't wait for next chapters of stories from the grave) When will they be out?
Hope my feedback was useful!
Thanks for the feedback! I totally agree with your points. New chapters will come for sure but i dont know when
Love this game, pls make volume 2 and check pls my gameplay in Spanish
A great game. Loved the retro vibes and the atmosphere. Waiting for volume II.
This game is so cool can you make a volume 2 please
This game teaches you how to bury a body I think...
Played the updated version with ending! Wow this game was already pretty interesting but now...it's simply incredible! Awesome work DeadByte!
