Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 13. If this were a movie, it would probably be PG-13.

In a small, German village life is small. The Children play, the birds sing, and the Woman gossip that is until on a small fateful night that strange happenings occur and the village is thrown into a chaos. 

In this German tale you play as the young man, Guy, who is forced to be in his chimney and has the burden of finding his dear sister and his love and to find a way out of this demonic situation.

But the real question is the one that many can not answer; are you brave enough?

 

Player Comments

This game was super neat- loved the idea and the writing was thoughtful and not short and boring! :) thanks for making a great game. One thing I will say is although it requires a lot more time and effort, I'd really like to see even lengthier descriptions of certain scenes/characters in places where the moment allows itself to have further description. This would just allow the players to immerse themselves deeper into your story. Thanks again!

Please keep in mind, the following items are my opinion:

I don’t really like stories that can end with one link. I wouldn’t mind as much if it were obvious that making that choice would end the story, but when I’m faced with two choices and no clue as to which is the “best” choice and one of them leads to instant death, I’m inclined to not read more, rate it a one, and then move on. However, I did not do that here.

I do like white space in a story, it makes it much easier to read. That said, there can be too much white space – a paragraph really should be at least 3 sentences long in most cases (with obvious exceptions for dialogue, themes, and moods).

There is one page (I can’t tell you which one because there are no titles on your pages?) where the font style changes halfway through the page. To me, that’s annoying unless there is a good reason for it.

Overall the story does seem to have potential – but all aspects of it could be developed more. The main and other characters could have more development including their descriptions, thoughts, and motivations. Each option could have a few more details around it to help people understand what’s going to happen if they choose that option or at least give hints as to where they will lead. And as others have said, the story is quite short. Each page here could be more developed and more could really be added to make it a more complete story.

It was pretty good and I'm surprised that I got a good ending on my first, second, and third try.

This wasn't bad from what I read.

Got the happy ending on the first try surprisingly.

Sorry for commenting twice, but forget the linear thing I said- I can see you worked hard on it! Definitely worth replaying!

Fun, short however and slightly linear. The writing is great,the plot is fun, and I'm going to replay and see if there are more paths :)

Seriously? Death link on the first page?

Looks cool.

I died.

Interesting. I enjoyed it I guess, despite it just being a demo. Like others have said, it has potential although I haven't read your first one if this is a sequel.

I just didn't like how there was one right option and the rest, resulted in death. Players shouldn't have to be forced to choose only one thing unless it's minor.

I don't get excited at the prospect of reading yet another demo. If you'd like opinions/play-testers/proofreaders/criticism, you should post a link in "Writing Workshop" instead of publishing.

Also, there are quite a few grammar and punctuation mistakes that could have/should have been corrected prior to publishing.

Thanks for the point, though...
