The mesemerising blend of sinister and grainy visuals and unhinged writing that's fired from the hip tells me that a demon coded this using either Disunity or Surreal Engine. It makes up for the lack of intricate narrative design and writing with a clever aesthetic that makes you laugh and interface elements that just feel good to click. Each story is short enough to avoid being too annoying to play them each twice and see the possible paths. Absolutely noided experience that I'm looking forward to continue following.

Still excited for more of this, it's one of my favourite ongoing projects!
You are a underappreciated artist, i only pray for you to create more of this masterpiece and you getting noticed.
I really didn't expect Stefan Burnett in this, but it was gorgeous. It wasn't even funny or humorous, it was just sad, dark, and a bit humorous, mostly uncanny in a good way. All of the scariest parts were unexpected and didn't try too hard to be. The graphics were astonishingly interesting, the changing colors, black and white colors and the TV glitch effect was great. It is the good kind of weird, i really liked it and would like to wait for most of it to be released.
MC Ride lol
Gorgeous game, awesome music. This is an experience
this game is really awesome, i like the art games which they give the game a nice touches, i speak arabic for sure, Thank you for Creating it
This is seriously the best game i've played in my entire life
this is fuckin bizarre
Hey man, amazing work. If you are interested or will be interested in translation -- i can help with Russian, just give me a sign.
IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES GUILLOTIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE
This is the last part that will be available for free, right?
VERY INTERESTING GAME!!!
I realy enjoyed snake so was realy happy to see that goat was out and it was awesome another great short story cant wait for more just a fantastic style
downloaded the game like, 30 minutes ago? and saw how you fixed the bug with goat, but it still freezes at the tent sequence for me. tried re-downloading but it's the same. still an astounding game though i fuckin love it
I played this back in January! It was quite the interesting game.
The visuals in this game... Just wow. Everything about this was just so amazing and I felt like I was dreaming in a way, very good job! :D
I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
Fixed another bug. If the game starts here for you then it should work properly now.
There was an issue with one of the endings ("Black pill" ending). If you've downloaded the game within the last hour you might have to download it again. Sorry for the inconvenience!
This is amazing my dude, please continue. I'll give you money when I can. My only issue, albeit a small one, is that you have to replay everything to get the different endings, and scrolling through the same dialogs takes you out of it a little. Little things like a new line of dialog that you can't automatically skip that tells you something new would be refreshing. Thats my only issue and it's really small really because this is perrrrfect and i love it so much
everything about this is SPECTACULAR! I absolutely cannot wait for more!!
Really like it so far, but, as a recommendation, I'd use a version without vocals for the song that plays near the end of the Snake story. It's pretty distracting, especially if you understand Russian.
I really like that song! It's catchy! What's it called and who's the artist?
I liked that song too! He credits it if you check the title screen... Its by Utro and the song is “Незнакомая сила” ...here’s a YouTube link:
i have to really pin point something. When you select the snake and go to the Limelight Club hotel, a cat appears and asks you to enter the opposite room. When you enter the roo, a carpet appears, " The Man In The Rug". Actually that carpet is a Prayer Mat used by muslims to offer prayer. The design on the carpet shows the Holy Mosque with the Kaaba and two minarets on its back. This Holy Mosque is visited by millions of muslims every year for pilgrimage. It's a very peaceful and comforting place. Could you give your story for using the prayer mat in the game?
BUt in the above picture, the game camera goes to the lower side of the rug, which is just a design of flowers and trees. I have a prayer rug which almost looks liks this.
The Man in the Rug is taken from a prayer mat of mine as well, I thought the tree in the bottom with the branches looked a lot like a face. You can rest assured that I didn't mean any offense as I'm Muslim myself.
Love it so far! The visuals are mesmerizing.
Very interesting visuals, really enjoyed that.
With this first story played, the game offers an art style and story that pull you into this surreal world. Even though there aren't a lot of characters in this story yet, the ones you meet feel real and distinct from each other. Plus some fitting music and you got me hooked for the full game! Good job so far!
I lived! I don't know how but I LIVED.
This is absolutely brilliant.
I only saw markiplier play a very short run to introduce me, but DAMN SON! This art style is legitmately creepy AF when I started playinh! I'm looking forward to the rest of this, and whatever else you have planned! This is the first game where I actually bought under the 'Name your own price', and I'd do it 10x over... for a complete game. Good work man, keep it up!
For anyone thinking about recording this game, you may need to increase your bitrate! 1 Bit graphics are very demanding on the bitrate, especially when they're this volatile, and may end up blurry with your ordinary settings.
Would love to see some dev logs or insight into the creation of it! It has a wonderful style that makes me so curious as to how it's made.
Keep doin' what you're doin', Sonoshee!
Edit: You remind me a lot of Lucas Pope.
Honestly, what an amazing looking game! The style is mesmerizing! It's really interesting and unique and I can't wait to play the other levels! Made a video of dying a few times before living, hope you enjoy!
I have no idea how you're doing this but I beg of you, never stop.
Hi! Thanks for making this game, I made you a video
Love the overall aesthetic and feel of the game, the story is so surreal that I can't help but be intrigued for what's to come.
i played this game this game for my channel the other day and i am absolutly impressed by it. there is so much to there game and i enjoy how open-ended it is
This game has such a good atmosphere. I was so intrigued the second I saw it. Everything has an odd ethereal feel in this game and I love the effects so much. While the endings at this point are slightly confusing and leave a lot of unanswered questions (because it's not done yet,) part of me enjoys their open-ended-ness that allows you to come up with your own ideas. My only complaint with this game so far is that sometimes I didn't know where to click (not for long though.) I wouldn't let that stop anyone from playing this game, it's a delightful experience in a delightfully odd way that everyone should enjoy. I'm excited for what comes next.
this is exactly the kind of game i want to make. the meeting with the 2nd noid man in the club is a close cousin of the kind of dramatic feeling i want to recreate. my mind melds with stories like this. i feel the closest to myself and unashamed for who i am
Epic trippy text based adventure I highly recommend anyone play this it's just fantastic mad respect to the person who made this would drink there brain
holy fucking shit, i just finished recording a video and will be uploading soon but this is fucking beautiful and absolutely impressive, i am ver excited for the full release
The game has a very strange but quirky story and atmosphere. I love the artstyle. How things move so smoothly and the black and white glitchy visuals makes it somewhat appealing to look at. I would have rated this game already, but I'm sticking around for the full release to review the complete experience of what this surreal game has to offer.
