They who stray away from their faith must be punished and become one with the beast. Only these who understand what is to come will flourish on the dead corpse of society.♠

Awesome game! Very simple and very entertaining, I had a lot of fun making this video

Keep it up, I'd love to play more similar games!

(I say "these graphics are horrible!" in the video, but actually I really like the PS1 style graphics and I play a lot of games like that ;D)

Great night city atmosphere.  Satisfying ending. Keep up!

Loved the game. Great atmosphere and overall creepiness. I'm not sure why out guy would go into so much trouble for Gus though lol 

I gave it a go (starts at 11:05)

WAS GUS EVEN REAL. YO DEVELOPER, WAS GUS EVEN REAL??!

This game is super cool dude, and I'm hoping to finish it soon so I can give my full opinion on it, but I'm stuck in the sewers! Could you let me know how to get through them? I've been wandering for over twenty minutes, still found nothing that I can interact with... I found a ladder that looks like the exit, but I can't climb onto the platform to interact with it, and I'm not sure if that's actually the path forward or not.

Nice creepy game and cool retro style. The music at the end was awesome. Good stuff Neurobew!

This game is right up my alley! I love the retro look and feel! As usual, Jon’s music jams and helps to set the tone, taking the player back to the era. I was truly surprised by the game’s ending; I never expected to witness what I did. I’d love to see this game or idea expanded into a larger release!

I played through the game and actually recorded it for my channel. I can not emphasize enough how much of an amazing game this was. I absolutely loved it, the atmosphere and the weird, lovecraftian story elements were beautifully done. However, I will say that I was not fond of the aspect of aimlessly scouring around the sewers, and did encounter an issue with not being able to pick up the boxes at times. Overall, I had a lot of fun, thank you!

Thanks for playing, I'm glad you had a good time with the game!!
These two issues are a result of the 2 day limit of the jam I'm afraid. The idea was to follow the water flow in the sewers, but I can see how even that can get confusing. Same goes for the boxes, didn't have enough time to polish the mechanic.

I completely understand that, my friend. Like I said, they were only minor issues for me. Also, that would actually make a lot of sense, I think I was just being a fool and didn't notice it. Honestly, I really enjoyed the game, and would love to see what comes next for you. Thank you for your reply, by the way!

It was a little confusing with how I needed to progress but after I got that figured out the story unfolded nicely.

Glad you liked the story! Thanks for playing!

I Was Hoping That There Was Gonna Be A Jumpscare In This Game, But It Was Still Overall A Good Game And The Sewers Was Kinda Scary NGL. Keep Up The Good Work Man!👍🔥 (Here's My Gameplay On It)

Really nice game, Enjoyed playing it.

Glad you did! Thanks for playing!

I really enjoyed the game!! Good work!! Have a great day guys!! :D

Awesome!! Thanks for playing!

(+1)

I had a great time playing. The ambiance was done very well and keeping you on edge throughout the game. Was hoping for a few jumpscares but I had a great time playing it for sure! The sewers were super creepy!

Ohh thanks for the kind words! It was more of an atmospheric vignette with an unsettling turn, so that's why there weren't any jumpscares.
Thanks for playing!

(+1)

Aww gotcha! That makes total sense then! You hit the nail on the head!

(+1)

had a lot of fun with this, those dark sewers freak me out lol

(+1)

Glad you had fun! Thanks for playing!

Very cool horror game!  I really like the style for this game!  I thought the objectives in the game were good too. 

(+1)

Thanks for playing! Glad you enjoyed the game!

As for the lag spikes, I haven't had someone else mention that issue and didn't encounter it when testing myself. Could be that it happens with certain hardware configs. The game itself can run on anything moderately modern though. I guess it just happens sometimes, who knows. :P

(+1)

I NEED ANSWERS FOR THE ENDING *smashes keyboard* but it was a good game!

They lie within the game itself I'm afraid haha!
Thanks for playing!!

Hi, I'm currently making a series where I play through every game submitted to the Wretched Weekend Jam, and yours was the 59th game I played!

This game was amazingly good, especially for something made in such a small amount of time! It's really well fleshed out, has a great atmosphere, interesting and creepy story, awesome PS1 graphics and sweet soundtrack and audio. 
It's also a good length for a jam game too, had a lot more to it than I expected. One little issue was a door towards the end that I swear I clicked on but didn't register the first time. But, other than that, excellent.

You really smashed it out the park with this one, and I really can't wait to finally get around to the Haunted PS1 Jam and play Killer Bees. 

Here's the video for those interested (time stamps in description):

Wow thanks for the kind words!!
Yeah Jon and Toni are really talented folks, that's why the soundtrack is so awesome! It's short but with only 2 days to make something I'm pretty satisfied with the length. It doesn't outstay it's welcome as well that way.
The door trigger is a known issue for some people, Sometimes it doesn't trigger when being super close to the door.
Thanks for playing!!

NEUROBEW! Long time no see, i remember watching your indie games and strobovski videos i really liked them. You didn't disappoint anyone, seems like everyone has gotten into game development now, even JayskiBean.

Hey! Yeah I don't do YT that much, if at all, now. I guess you folks can play the games I make instead of watching me playing other people's games haha.

Bugreport~

The text is glitched out through the bottom of the screen, making only the top two pixels visible, therefore making all text unreadable.

(+1)

changing my aspect ratio to 4:3 fixed it

It's a known scaling issue with Unity and some display drivers unfortunately! Glad you got it working though!

Unfortunately, I'm afraid that a mac port won't happen.

Amazing modeling and texture work. It successfully subverted my expectations as to when the scares would happen, which I appreciated. I'm amazed by how much content you could fit into this game given the length of the jam. Great job.

Thank you for the kind words!!
I tried to make it kinda unpredictable in a way. The nature of the story was such so it wouldn't be something expected. So I'm glad it did come across like that!
Thanks for playing!

The game really does look great, doesn't it?

MY VOT3 10/10 SO BEAUTY CREEPY :*

Thanks for playing!!

Ahhh, Ioved this! I had trouble opening doors sometimes (I think if you're too close it wont work?), but otherwise it was a smooth experience. The atmosphere and graphics are spot on! I actually got really early Dreamcast vibes from the beginning. Like Tomato convenient store at 3am lol. Kinda want a legit supermarket sim with these graphics... Anyway, great job!

(+1)

Thanks for playing! Glad you enjoyed it!
Yeah I know the issue you're talking about. A specific door needs some tweaking, so I'll probably push a fix for that!
Ohh now I can totally see the tomato convenience store from Shenmue at 3am vibe!

good game its really enjoyable

please check out my channel

Thanks for playing!

you're welcome bro

Is the game finished and needs no more updates?

Yep the game is finished!

That was amazing! By the way, are there multiple endings?

Glad you enjoyed it! Nope. there is only 1 ending.

Another question: are you planning on updating the Killer Bees? If the game is finished and no additional content is needed, I might play it now!

Yes, the demo of Killer Bees is final. The full game will come out in the future.
