DEMO V1 INFO BELOW 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
I have posted a video that shows clips of the demo + content that is not part of the demo. You can find the short 5-minute video here: tinyurl.com/ktxaw76

Please make sure your volume isn't too loud, the audio is really strange at times.

This is a DEMO, and a very short one at that!
Yes it's not August, but the trend of my attention span demands I release it before I decide to drop it entirely.

Please do not redistribute the game or upload the CGs or facesets, though why would you, they're not that special :lol:

DOWNLOAD:
DEMO V1

you will need to download the RTP for RPG Maker VX Ace, or you will not be able to play the game at all
RTP DOWNLOAD

Please, if you find any bugs, audio glitches, or the like, please tell me (and I'll reply whether it was intentional or a genuine bug) That also goes for typo's, dialogue overflows and grammatical errors (if you're American, I'll forwarn my use of British/Australian spelling).
I also apologise if the dialogue feels really, really vague - it's supposed to make a lot more sense in the larger scheme of things. So far there are two splits in the story that you can play (though they're only at the very end of the demo), so if you get one road, have a go at playing through the other.

Please Note:
:bulletred: Explore everything thoroughly.
:bulletred: Check your items when you get something new
:bulletred: the fridge

Future Developments:
:bulletgreen: More uses for the video camera (such as changing to night-vision mode to see/avoid unseen dangers)
:bulletgreen: More story!
:bulletgreen: More horror!

:hmm: Anyway, play, enjoy, leave a comment and favourite!

Hi, I absolutely loved the game, and did Arthur's path.

Now I'm on Alfred's path and I'm stuck. I need the silver ring, but the wardrobe isn't opening... it says it doesn't budge for some reason (and I did check a map too...)

(Also another question: you said that either pairing can be an option in the end. My question is this: is it possible to end in a triad? Golden ending perhaps? *chinhands*)

Have you got all the other ingredients before the silver ring? 
There is a true ending/golden ending planned; with my current situation however I'm not sure how viable this project is going to be and whether or not it'll make a full release unfortunately.

Loved this! It scared the crap outta me and had me going mad over it a few times!! Loved this SOOOOOO SO SO SO MUCH!!! I can't wait for more!! *squeals with anticipation*

....

*clears throat*

Anyways...I'd like to say that during the path you take with Alfred - There was a point in the second maze where Al "tripped." When this happened, he landed on one of the rock formations and I couldn't move him. I mean, he'd turn in the direction I wanted him to go, but he never went anywhere. I was starting to get worried, but was relieved at the end of the timer. If it wasn't intentional, then, here you go, now you know. If it was, then bravo. I was pretty nervous there for a moment. I don't think Al'd do too well in a dark hole in the ground with no TV or McDonald's. lol

I legitimately just finished it and im sitting here like this has left me with so many unanswered questions, more so than attack on titan left me with and I just wanna say I love it. I want more of it. The story line of it is so suspenseful and intriguing and the gameplay just makes you wanna play more. I really hope you make more!

Hey thanks! From the sounds of it there might've been a bug when you played Alfred's pathway because there is more to it. On Alfred's path you're able to both get the potion ingredients and also achieve one ending if you do something.

The first demo doesn't go that far; I haven't made any more updates since demo 2, so I think there may have been a bug. Check how much HP characters have before you go into cutscenes if that's possible; I think a death screen triggers if it cuts to a scene where the characters are all KO'd.

Playable ending -> you have to select Alfred to get the items for Kiku's potion. If Alfred fails the final maze puzzle, you'll get an ending sequence.

AND I MUST ASK!
*WERE KIKU AND ARTHUR A COUPLE ONCE?* Because I got to the part where Arthur got mad and Alfred made the comment, "I know you guys use to be a pair," or something like that! And I also made it to the cutscene where England and America passed out and England had a flashback or something. Alfred was on top of Arthur, spouting something about the beach and an anniversary! Whaaaat?! Was it, like, the 4th of July or were they a couple? It would appear that Arthur makes company with most countries xD . Thanks!

The kicker is that everyone in that group has been with the other at some point in time. Just. Historically speaking.
Arthur and Alfred were for a while, Arthur and Kiku were at some point and then it was Kiku and Alfred more recently or something like that.

So you can probably see the awkward pretzel of feels there.

This game is one of my favourites! I have to ask, though...
*SpOILER*
Are Kiku's eyes gone, or just bleeding? The thought intrigued me, because I haven't played many games with eyes being bloody. 
I love this game, and would love to see more of it as soon as you get the chance to update! Don't leave us on a spoiler for five years, like HetaOni!!!!

I think it was a part of one of Celiana's tilesets? I parallax map so I stitch everything together in a separate program so I can arrange objects more realistically.

If you have all the ingredients, you should be able to enter the hole in the wall on the second floor corridor, between the Wendigo painting and the attic stairwell door. Inside there's a map that marks something in the downstairs storeroom. If you interact with one of the wardrobes in the storeroom you'll find another passageway to progress into.
