  1. First “One Day, the World”, then “Imscared”: I’m so happy about this! =)

  2. Wow, this is truly excellent. I don’t want to spoil anything, but it makes such a good use of extraludic (did I just coin that? Like extratextual?) material. So haunting.

    There’s one bit that may not have gone off the way it was intended, but I’m going to wait to say anything lest I give away something of its charms.

  3. 😯 Holy eff! This is a mastery in horror.

  4. What do you do in the (spoiler) area after the second event?

  5. Didn’t play this yet but after reading the first message im afraid it’s gonna have a “The 4th Wall” type ending. Sounds good.

    • That’s what I’m afraid of too, but I don’t think it will, since The 4th Wall had that false-positive virus warning and this game didn’t. At least, not for me…

      • This definitely reminded me of The 4th Wall, too–but this is just getting started where that game ended! It is also reminiscent of the trick in Irisu Syndrome.

        This game scared me. White Face is the new Slenderman, man.

  6. Scaring the bejesus out of me. That tag part took a bit of circle strafing though.

  7. The game won’t run for me any more, so I’m guessing it’s over…?

  8. I am not sure if I’m at the end, but I’m getting a runtime error 216. The last text document in the folder is labeled “0”. I don’t want to spoil anything, but it’s after I enter room “6.”

    I may do a review / article of this game on my website, so any help you can give me regarding this would be fantastic.


  9. when does it ends? If I start the game I see a pic of the rope with the face in the background. Is that it? I need to know.

    Ma finisce quando se lanci il gioco si vede il nodo e la faccia sorridente dietro e poi crasha? PLease respond

  10. I finished the game and deleted it (because there was nothing more to do), but I left the TAKE TIME picture in my docs so it can look at me. It kept saying it was scared and crying so I’m trying to be friendly.

    I wish I knew what was going on better – I feel like I missed something as far as I could tell (SPOILERS FOLLOW) the game was about a white face that haunted me until I hanged myself. But what was the significance of the girl in the portrait? The road, the prison bars, the holes? Maybe it’s meant to make me always wonder. I guess it really is haunting me!

  11. That reminds me: is hello.png supposed to be blank? I also tried changing it to a .txt file, but didn’t discern anything in there of interest…

  12. Got stuck at the endless drop near the changing portrait of the woman. Sorry, not sure what I missed, but clearly this is the shortest game ever. Nice ambiance though, hope more is made of it.

  13. “Bend it to our will by any means necessary and flaiing that destroy it…The game is fully a matter of how far we are willing to go.”I’m sure the DNC is also willing to win by “any means necessary”; look for lots of voter fraud, intimidation and cracked skulls this Fall as the Donks rev up the action, it’s going to be Chicago politics on a nationwide scale.

  14. TraskNari Plays Imscared Haha Ive watched his videos πŸ™‚ 😎

  15. i got stuck in the dark room where i find whiteface, the chair and the rope, i think i touched the rope and got the note 0
