So far what you have is intriguing and I can't wait for more. You've got an interesting set up, small little details that give character to the world (like having hot sauce in the cuboards) and nice art.

Just a note, I found freeing Tom from the film a bit buggy, as in I had to click around them multiple times for about half a minute with both the scissors and mattress equipped. (I know you pointed out there were still bugs since its a demo)

But thats all I really have to say. Defintley the beggining of something really cool. (like the title too by the way).

Stay Determined :) 

(by the way have you played Doki Doki literature club?)

Hi there! Thank you so much for playing my game. I'll see what I can do about Tom's hitbox!

DDLC is one of my favourite games :)

Stay Determined!

I wouldn't say was a fun game DDLC, rather quite horrific but damn is it engaging. Games don't have to be fun, just engaging. Well atleast thats what I think. I started to get a similar feeling when reading about your game. By the way, have you figured out the entire story line of the game and how long have you had this idea for? Just curious :)

I've been working on the game for about 2 months now, and the story is mostly planned out, just need to add some details. I agree, games don't always have to give you a fun feeling (The Hello Charlotte series stands as one of my biggest inspirations, which just tries to make the player feel bad on every possible occasion), though I try to sprinkle in some moodlifting moments here and there.
