it’s a freaky little game with a great retro visual style and a tense and foreboding atmosphere. - Free Game Planet

Love the sound and atmosphere!
Great short game, I likedfiguring out how to get both endings. Loved the graphics and the atmosphere, never really sure what to expect (or even what was happening). I suppose I'm happy that I'm a killer and that's Paradise. Enjoyed the experience, thanks for creating :)
love your game thank you so much love the endings
Very spooky experience! I loved the little readme hahaha and the ending was something else! It reminded of the feeling I had from watching the Empty Man.
Fun game, read the READme.txt after playing... oops
After reading that wonderful "ReadMe.txt" file, I was off. For a few short minutes, I was immersed in...well, what I was and somehow I wound up in Paradise... Say, Glory Meat...may I have "it" back...I'm starting to feel a bit strange... ;)
Fantastic experience worth owning, playing and pondering the mystery behind! Highly recommended!
Well thank god I downloaded it 2 days ago before the price was added lmao.
Comments below clip;I didn't want to, but I had to anyway. Up and down the alleyway. Back and forth. Back and forth, and every time things got worse. But onward I went, until the bitter end.
Short game? Yes. But it was thoroughly enjoyable. Kudos to ll involved!
Not too bad, although the footsteps were really loud I'd say aside that it wasn't too bad.
I like the atmosphere, and the VHS effect too! Was able to get both endings.
I love the atmosphere in this game! You have no idea what's going on, but you want to keep on playing to find out because of how mysterious it is. I got both endings as well!

"i like it. i also got both endings of the game."
There's certainly been a "loop" trend in horror games since PT hit the scene (which is impressive, considering how long ago that demo dropped!), and I'm here for it and all about it!
This really is a curio, and it had me throwing out theories all over the place! The best thing about these kind of games is that you can make your own mind up about what's going on, I've always liked that aspect of some games. Don't get me wrong, sometimes I like a nice firm obvious explanation, but every now and again you just kind of want to let your mind go nuts and come up with its own crazy explanations!
So, there's not a massive amount of gameplay in this little experience, but the atmosphere is great, the setting is nice and claustrophobic and the ending(s) are weird and wonderful!
Highly recommend giving this a quick playthrough if you have 10 minutes to spare.
A well made game with amazing sound design. The atmosphere really gave me the chills. A must play for anyone who's looking to play an inde game!
Played this after Tender. And have to say, you've done a really great job making a very spooky atmosphere from very simplistic graphics and area. It was very tense and spooky and the small things like the breathing at one of the parts added a tiny bit more depth and added to the overall ambience. It was a simple, short and effective game that was really fun to play!
(I read in one of the comments that you were going to take a break from horror, and Iwish you best of luck in your future games!)
Good short game, and I got both endings too.
Checked this out after playing H.G I really like your style and look forward to more games in the future!!
Thanks! But I think in going to take a brake from making horror games
I understand. Thanks for what you've given us already I enjoyed them a lot :)
Cool little game. I dig it. I love the way it looks too. Thanks for the fun!
please watch my video
i love the style of this.
Managed to do a lot with a little - I enjoyed it!
Nice little horror game.
Hola, jugué su juego y me encanto, también ese estilo PSX que le da el toque aterrador :)
Edit: Conseguí los dos finales.
Nice! A bit plodding but came together nice, huge props on the visuals at the end of the third or fourth alley. Hoping to make something similar myself one day.
Well Goodluck! Right now I'm trying to come up with something else to make :)
It's pretty good...
this game is awesome!! keep up this cool work, i am Enjoying myself!!!
Hey, I featured your game in my latest Itch.io Horror Games video! It stars around 1:54! Hope ya enjoy!
Well this was certainly a strange experience. (Your game begins at 07:15)
There is something to be said for these kind of surreal horrors. It's certainly dripping with atmosphere and leaves you with questions right from th get-go... although I have no earthly clue how exactly I unlocked any kind of "ending" when all you can do is walk back and forth a btit.
It's a simple journey, and not necessarily the most terrifying, but definitely strange and unnerving. So good job on that!
I really like games like these. Not only do they run on a low end pc like mine but they are pretty decent too. Retro psx style is awesome! Definitely think that there should've been a chase scene or some more scares in the game. Nonetheless, great game! Thanks so much and keep up the good work!
Cool game! Love the retro psx style!
Gave it a go...
Played this in my 3 Random Games video, first game actually, and I gotta say....... this is pretty good! It just goes to show that you don't need a lot to make a creepy atmospherical game and this proves it!
It was soooo creepy~!
