this game is very good, i really enjoyed it and put a bit of my humor on it :)
A downloadable game for Windows
A short narrative horror game.
Symbolically, the production depicts the struggle of man with depression and his internal demons.
Nothing you see is exactly what it really is.
This is not a ghost story or other fantasy monster story.
Because the real monsters are people themselves.
Often against themselves.
Can you understand what surrounds you?
Game created in one week.
Check Anthology of Fear on Steam for more experience.
Please do not start the game in the Window mode, because it can cause game instability or crash.

This..surprised me. I like to stay current at the quality level of free games (been an avid freeware gamer since Flash was king) and you still managed to...yeah, surprise me. So good.
Keep in mind Depression is a daily struggle for me, and I have done a few drastic attempts where I was in treatment for many months at a time after. The metaphors in this at times felt too much like my inner thought process.
There was a crucial "oh shit" moment when the second door opened that almost made me cry. I used to call myself the "Recursive Rabbit" as I felt like my days looped into themselves..a rabbit hole into a rabbit hole into a rabbit hole... it just wouldn't stop.
I rarely comment on things here. This is going to be a shining example I link people to on both narrative in games, and free content out doing some larger AAA titles even in just a handful of minutes.
You legit impacted my life positively with how well you portrayed mental illness in a game (something I at one time made a kickstarter about, as so few ever do)
This is not only an incredible game, but it also has a deeper meaning and more symbolism than most horror games I have played.
Was an interesting experience.
Psychological and well-crafted. Definetely looking forward to the Anthology of Fear!
spooky as all hell
I enjoyed your game! Thank you! It was great experience! ♥
A really good game. We loved the atmosphere and the black & white visuals.
what a interesting and scary little game!
That was rough and hard to play through, especially once the gun appeared. Very well done though. I love how it's done in black and white.
For some reason this crashes for me after the first "I remember this place" lines every time :( Not running in window mode.
Same here. Using Windows 7 64-bit. Tried running from the install folder instead of the itch application, same results.
This was extremely well made. Cut scenes were fantastic and the atmosphere was amazing. The black and white also added to the overall feeling of the game. Also thought i'd made a really good thumbnail till I looked below, lol, but overall this is well worth a play and for a made in a week game this was amazing. Big congrats... :)
Interesting game, had me rambling and ranting about psychology and shiz
It's really cool how this game is focussed on quite a dark topic with real seriousness, you can tell this is a manifestation of a mental state, really captivating! 🙂
Thanks for the video. I'm happy you enjoyed :)
That swaying was some kind of glitch, it shouldn't be as much as that.
Very dark, but realistic, not the most pleasant experience but I think that was the intention, well done
Very crazy experience. Keep up the amazing work.
Very unsettling game. I was afraid it was just going to be story and i was dead wrong. Nice job.
Amazing game dev had so much fun playing it :) i hoe you enjoy my gameplay
Hi, I'm glad you enjoyed! And of course thanks for the gameplay, it's nice to watch :)
I loved this game <3 Thanks for bringing a game of reality for a lot of people!
Thank you for playing, and thank you for the video! :)
You nailed the meaning of the keys. :)
Nice analysis of the whole, it was very pleasant to listen to it, I'm glad you enjoyed it!
That game looks boring at the start few mins but it becomes interesting as you proceed further :)) Awesome project Dev enjoyed it ;) Rated 5/5. Your subscription will be appreciated and let me know about your new games. Looking Forward ^_^
Hi there, I am a youtuber and I hope to get some support from you guys by leaving a like and subscribe at my channel.
This was an amazing game and the fact that it was created within a week is shocking and interesting. I really liked the atmosphere and monochrome environment created in the game as it really hit me in the feels. I also loved the exploration of the enemy within and the various factors that the protagonist was affected by and the storyline is great. I hope that the game can imcrease its gameplay time by maybe having more rooms to explore the emptiness within the protagonist and maybe we can also explore the contrast between the protagonist's past and the present to create a more horrifying and dramatic impact towards the player?
Thank you for reading my comment :).
A good game, sound quality, acceptable shadows and a fabulous story, I want to be able to try the game "Anthology of Fear" if you can send me a key or code, thanks for such a beautiful game, greetings from Spain ...
