Someone is in the house!

by Datamosh - Jam Entry


Using the mouse only, you must find:

Only when you get these items you'll be able to go to the attic, where you can finally end the nightmare.

You'll move and HIDE in objects with LEFT click.
And search for items and loot bodies with RIGHT click.

Don't let the killer catch you!

This was really cool, it felt intense. I think micromanaging all the characters was bit difficult. Also I played a few times and was unable to find any weapons. Good stuff.

This game is great, I don't know why it doesn't have more votes. Really liked it. Only the switching between between characters was complex, One of them died...

intense atmosphere gave me the chills! gameplay: controlling the character was a bit of a hassle. since they would only move when you click on a certain object. Apart from that the gameplay was good :) good entry!

the stabbing part is especially well done, it freaks me out every time, but the animation and the sound effect on it. The sound in general is great. I was a little bit frustrated with the selecting of guys and getting them to search things without wanting to hide in it first.

Really interesting idea, but the controls make it a bit of a pain to play! I also couldn't find the bullets, and I'm pretty sure I searched every location :(

The control are not really intuitive I spend a lot of time mastering them. I think I would have go for left click move, right click search, right click on foot > hide if possible.
The game is pretty good. I finished it with a lot of fear, well done.

DON'T KILL THEM! Pretty intense game. Controls were a bit difficult to master, but otherwise pretty darn good! Well done!

Couple of funny bugs, like passing the killer on the stairs with a friendly hello, and one of the guys got stuck in a crouch pose when he entered the final attic room. It was a little unclear that the locked-off area of the attic wasn't the part you see at first, since the text made it sound like I couldn't go up there, so I didn't know where to find the bear trap for a while, but I'm nit picking. Pretty fun and interesting puzzle game. Cheers.

Really intense mood, but I wasn't sure what the point of the game was until I played through once and then read the instructions. I wanted to find everyone an exit to get away! But I dig the graphics and I think you did a pretty good job.

Very scary atmosphere, you really pulled off the horror movie vibe! The game can feel a bit unfair sometimes, as you have very little indication if the killer is close by on some of the hiding places, but at the same time it adds to the atmosphere that the killer can sort of "appear out of nowhere" as they tend to do in the movies. Nice job!

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
