My first release, a short project made in ren'py in about two weeks for NaNoReno17.

It's a Visual Novel game with multiple endings (9): some are ''dead ends'' whilst others are story related. Playing more than one ending helps you understand what's going on (specifically ending 1, 3 and 5). There's a bit of blood and gore(?), mostly censured, but I rated it R-18 just to be sure.

If you want to help me improve, RATE THE GAME or leave a COMMENT below to let me know your thoughts - or if you encountered some errors, typos, bugs and what-not: I'd greatly appreciate it :)

Also, please note that I've only tested the Pc version.

hey i can write the italian translation if you want, for free

this game is so creative and unique, i love it! i got ending 4 on my first playthrough but i got the good ending the second time around! i can't believe how many cool little details and twists are in this game. i love the story and concept and so far i have gotten 5 out of the 9 endings.


I don't know how I never saw anyone playing this before but it was so good. It kept me engaged the entire time and the universe of the story was very mysterious. Loved it and will be going for all endings on stream sometime soon.


This game is amazing! It is short but SO cool and atmospheric. One of my favourite novels.


This game is far beyond amazing!!! I love the atomsphere and I was really scared at first but with the revealing of the truth (part of ) I just feel shocked. Thank you for the special experience! (Sorry for my poor english by the way)


I got the good ending or true ending I guess - loved the game and it gave a different humanity i was not expecting but we made the right choices i guess. lol...loved it though!

OMGosh, this was so great thank you!! I had way too much fun tweaking his VOICE!! 😍

Sure he was a little unnerving in the beginning, but I held strong to my belief that kindness is recuperated!! I can't believe it actually worked 😂!!

I LOVE him so much now!!!🥰

Thank you!! Keep up the good work and stay safe!! 👍

Chilling story and an honor to narrate. It makes me miss it all over again. Many thanks for the work and much love 


*That* was an interesting adventure. Sometimes, you have to take a chance on the unknown, in order to find out what's keeping you "in the dark"


I loved this game a lot!! You did an amazing job!! It was really creepy and unsettling, but I ended up getting the true ending, and it was actually rather sweet! I'll probably go back and try to get all the endings!

This was a extremely good game. For a visual novel this had some amazing atmosphere.

A big surprise this one and needs more coverage. 


Jeu vraiment incroyable !!! J'aime beaucoup !

Belle surprise

Hello, I would like to get in touch with the author if possible. If anyone knows how and can let me know, I'd appreciate it.

Really creepy. I loved the creature's smile it was very scary! The true ending really surprised me, but I enjoyed all of it. Thanks for making this.

Fantastic! Great writing, and good story, not mentioning the level of creepiness. Like it, like it a lot.

Well done!


I think this game is well put together and thought out. Loved the graphics and interaction and story...

i loved this game alot its very fun

I really liked this game! It has a complex enough story to make it interesting and replayable, but at the same time is simple enough to have a nice time figuring it out!

Kudos for this game!

Chilling story and an honor to narrate. It makes me miss it all over again. Many thanks for the work and much love 

Hey there! I played your game yesterday and wow, it was beautiful. I loved it!

this was so much fun, and the true ending was so cute! absolutely loved it, and I can't wait to see what else you may have in store for this game

I love it and the true ending made me cry.

I liked the overall atmosphere and mystery in the game.

art is really cool! 

Full Play No Commentary - True Ending "Home"

pt 2 if possible :))) i rlly love the setting of the black creature so so much. I'm glad i watch the video from Manlybadasshero to not miss out this amazing game!

btw ur english so good ngl im surprised u still afraid of making grammar mistake.


Taken a walk in the woods and realize that there is suddenly no sound around you and you feel the hairs on the back of your neck stand up as if you're being stalked by some unseen predator...I have and Black toke me right back to that very terrifying moment.  I got the good ending if you call it that.  I think you created a very awesome and suspense-filled game.  I hope to see more of what you create next!


Pretty creepy and all but it was good to end and see the endings.

aw :(


Amazing game, didn't stop until I finally had all the endings hahaha


ayyy pretty good game ngl keep it up and hope u the best br


I loved this game the story was amazing, I could only finish the true ending tho, my soul couldnt handle the other endings lol.


True Ending on first playthrough. A masterpiece of a game, literally the most emotional experience I've had in YEARS.


home ending is <33 played some of the other endings and oh my god theyre horrific


Such an amazing game/experience from something done in 2 weeks!!! WOW! I loved the ambience and the creature and how the simple elements like the two eyes and the smile were enough to make me feel uncomfortable!! I got ending 5 right away and had a blast going through all the different options for the variety of dialogue/endings.... but really, what was that meat he gave us?? hmmmmm...

Also, I can't, for the life of me, get the third image from the 1st row... I tried to kill the creature as No One and I did the same things that gave me the second and fourth image (woman/man doing the killing) :c please help! I'd love to have a full gallery...

Keep it up!!

Hi Idajock! Thank you so much for your kind words! Mmm, that mysterious, purple meat...what is it? Where does it come from? Only the kid knows! XD

To get the image: when the creature asks who you are, tell him you are a man (this picture is the gender variation of the 1st picture of the 1st row). Don't kill him in the cave, believe in his words and when the game lets you choose beetween leaving or staying with him, leave the cave. Hope this helps!


it worked! thanks so much!!!


First ending I got was "Home" and honestly, I dont even want to get the other endings, im happy with my charcoal child and thats that


This was a really fun game!  I love imagining the drawing we got!

But what was that met he gave us???


Add Brazillian Portuguese pls


Amazing concept! It allows multiple interpretations and leaves you thinking. Very stimulating.

For me the protag represents the rational mind while the Kid represent the emotional self.


very wholesome
