I love this game <3

Thanks :)

This was a pretty strange game, but I did really like it.  I never knew what was going on and that was kinda cool.  I wish that somethings were explained a little bit more, but overall I could put the pieces together.  Hope the game gets completed and turns out the way that you want it to.

Thank you for your Feedback :)

that's great game! enjoy the play!
재미있게 플레이 했어요 :)

Thank you :)

Pretty neat stuff so far, eager to see how it develops now that it has been greenlit. Nice job.


Thank you:)
I'm working on making a real game out of this tech demo. But that still takes some time.

Good to hear, will be keeping an eye on it!

The Mystery Of Erik got Greenlight. Thank you very much.
I was very surprised that The Mystery Of Erik got Greenlight because it was at a very early stage of development at that time. However, the submission was very important for the further development because many experiences and opinions could be collected.
The next step is to contact Steam and complete the game.
The finished game will differ from the technical demo in some points. The game principle will not change, but it has been improved.
Because of these changes, a game demo is planned. I think a demo is best for you, because you can see the changes and improvements for yourself.

Questions are welcome:)

Thank you very much for your feedback. You are right that this demo is more a proof of concept. With the feedback from the players I get experiences and information for create a full game. I work active on the game.

The Mystery of Erik was an interesting demo, it had spooky moments and a decent atmosphere as well as a couple of well placed jumpscares. However overall it feels more of a proof of concept than a demo representative of an actual game. There are lots of neat ideas here and the premise of cults and demonic rituals has potential. It's worth a look if you enjoy your indie horror games and we're certainly looking forward to see how the final game turns out after getting a brief taste here...

thank you for your feed

Make the Main Menu Choices Bigger It would Make it look better also other than making it easier to see

Thank you everybody for playing the demo. I got a lot of feedback. Now I will finish the game and improve following things:

1.) more horror and gameplay
2.) better graphic
3.) better performance
4.) improve of the control
5.) more and better enemys

I need some months for finishing the game. On twitter I will post in future the progress. When the game is ready I post it here. You can ask questions at any time and tips are welcome.

Best regards

is there any possible way you could turn mouse lock on? since I use two monitors I constantly find myself clicking out of the game. supposedly it is a super easy fix. I would love to record your game -- the little I played was pretty innovative and addicting. thanks and stay AWESOME!!


Some real potential here. Some parts I enjoyed while some parts I didn't much care for. I'm very much intrigued as to what the full game would be like though.

thank you for playing:)
