You wake up on a bus at it's last stop, a small desert town called Bleakstead.

Explore, talk to the residents, perform magical rituals, read ancient runes, to discover the secrets hidden in this strange town.

Tips: Explore a bit, start the story by talking with the person at the bus stop. For the ritual, get the candle first from the gas station, talk to the clerk beforehand. Photos are used to indicate the area that the pictures are to be taken. Holding up your camera allows the markers to appear. There's notes scattered about the town that give you some backstory as well as runes at some of the temples.

Hi, I downloaded the mac version of the game but when I try to open it say it can be opened. Do you know how can I solve this problem? Thanks in advance. 

This was pretty good! Overall creepy environment, and a great unfolding short back story. I had trouble figuring out what to do many times which kinda dragged the game along, but other than that, I really enjoyed this! Here's my playthrough:

I actually didn't notice the mini-walkthrough on this page until after recording. I was able to check out most of the town, but didn't progress very far in the story. Just talked to a few people and looked at some things. I dig the setting, desertscapes are more rare and underappreciated in horror. Anyways, I still had some fun checking out all the oddities on display. Looking forward to more in the future!

seems like what could be a really good atmospheric game, but i cannot get on with the controls :/. maybe its cus i dont play a lot of video games or because my computer lags but moving around / locking on to interact with an object is really annoying. im walking through this trailer park (faar too slowly) like a crab because moving the mouse makes it even slower, checking every damn oven to see if theres something in, and there isnt even anything in any of them. cant tell what im supposed to do next. need to find something to break into one of the doors of the motel? i gave up after an hour of wandering around aimlessly :'(

really wish i could enjoy this but navigating is jus too frustrating

Talking to the NPCs will give you an idea of where to go. Start at the guy at the bus stop or talk to the man in the diner. If you have the camera, the pictures on the ground are indicators of the general location, if you hold your camera up, you can see the "spots" to take pictures of. I'm sorry you're having problems with it but, thanks for giving it a shot.

(spanish lets play) i really like the game :D the mystery to it was really cool, there was a minor glitch where i got stuck but the game was really good :D keep up the good work!

I figured everything out! That's a lie. I found some stuff. Not even sure I found all of them.

Gave it a Let's Play, but I was confused about what everything even happened

Cool game. May want to tone down the pixelation just a tad.

Dope ass game!!!

LOL

While the game's interesting, I found the game a bit quiet (horror wise). Beyond that, I made a few suggestions in the video.

Here's my channel for other games I have played. http://www.youtube.com/c/Levont

what's wrong with quiet horror? that seems more a matter of personal taste than a fault of the game itself. Silent Hill 2 is more uncomfortably melancholy than loudly scary.

Played this for a 3 free indie horrors and thought it was pretty alright. I give a full honest review at the end of my video and pretty good time playing the game overall. Here's my video if you're interested.
