Really fun, creepy little game. Very well made and enjoyable, love it. 10/10 


Second in the line up. I didn't manage to juke my way through, but a fine build, the chaser fair, which really stands out. The build ups good, brisk with out being rushed. Good over all sound work. Worth the attempt.

I enjoyed the atmosphere very much, and was looking forward to seeing the game through, but unfortunately its far too frustrating for me. I dont know how to be careful when its so easy to get lost. I tried using sound cues or something, but as far as I could tell there was no indication of danger until it was already too late. Still not bad for a game jam.

A lot of fun, nice and spooky. I only wish there was a little more fishing.

"out of bounds" ma vaffanculo va




i love phishing games like this one!


Good and challenging game. The Haunted PS1 community has brought a lot of good stuff since I started following it in 2020. Congratulations on the game. 


hi, big thx for the cool game. greetings from rosti ๐Ÿ˜˜


(Game starts at 20:00) I livestreamed this game. I very much enjoyed going to Rottenwood Lake by myself and slowly discovering the lore of the game, which I very much liked) however, I was a bit confused on where to go and wish a map or some other hint was provided in finding the skulls. The fish monster also spawns in front of you sometimes and you just have to accept your inevitable death. Unless I'm missing some way to avoid it. Needless to say though, very fun game. With a few tweaks, this game could be amazing!

Super cool game! Although it is a bit hard finding everything, it was still quite good. I played it on my YouTube channel if you want to check it out. It didn't get many views but it was still fun to record๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Keep up the good work!



I hate collecting it from scratch

It was a fun, incredibly hard at some points and very easy to get lost in the maze of canals.

I was suprised I was able to beat it.

Thank you very much for the kind words and the video! Keep it up!

Thanks for your kind words! I'm glad you liked it! :D
I will be sharing the video, hehe.


Neat game! My only complaint is that it was a bit tedious. Here's my video on it if you're interested!


Cool, my intention is finish it, if it has a finish. Well this here is my first attempting. Congratulations, I liked a lot this game. The atmosphere is spooky and the creature lurking and sneak after us is scare us. Good job.  I shall do others "attempting"(parts). I cut some texts to give who watch the video play itself. Thanks for this good game. I should keep playing and recording it. That gameplay is in portuguese(Br).


extremely large area was frustrating to cover but cool writing! 4th game in video, timecode 8:23

Thanks for the gameplay! The map isn't as big as it seems tho :P Trust me... It's just the boat being slow and the fog.

I've seen you  changed the target framerate of the application. You didn't like the 24fps cap ?


Is the game finished and no more apdates are needed?

Hello! Yes, by now that's all, the game was done for a gamejam in under 4 days and later on we added some minimal features and bugfixes, but that's it :)

Hello Minya! Thanks for the video :) I'm currently working on a little update to balance things out a bit and make the game more catchy/scary. cheers!


I made a tierlist for a lot of the haunted ps1 games and this game was in it! Please check out my video!


First of all, I absolutely love the covert art. Really drew my eye. A totally gorgeous and well-put-together game in general. I do wish the antagonist was a bit more present, as it seemed to leave me alone most of the time.

Thanks for your feedback Kevin, we will probably do some balancing changes to make sure the enemy is more present!


Made a video


Really wanted to like this, but it's incredibly frustrating to die over and over again.

I'm sad to hear that :( the game can be quite challenging, have you tried bringing the heads one by one to the church ?


Yeah, and honestly that seems harder. It seems to move much faster with each skull returned. Unless it starts moving faster upon skull pickup instead of return, I guess you would know much better haha. Anyway, it has a great atmosphere, and I'll probably return to it soon.

Yes indeed, the monster becomes faster every time you pickup a skull :) glad to hear you liked it mate! We're rolling a new update tomorrow with more atmospheric stuff


ooooh that's fantastic news! Will definitely take a look!!


Absolutely love the game, if someone is interested...I made a fan trailer for it :)

We appreciate it a lot man, thanks for your time and effort!
