well this game is a mad house.
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
This prototype game was conceptualized and created in 6 weeks by a small and dedicated team of student developers at the School of Game Development at the Academy of Art University.
“Where am I? What am I doing here?”
Justin Simmonds wakes up on the floor in an old rehabilitation isolated room. He can’t remember what happened or how he got there. All he knows is that he is currently being treated for the apparitions he’s been seeing and Doctor Theodore Mason has offered him a chance to be cured by undergoing a risky new treatment.
In an unsettling and mysterious situation, Justin is determined to investigate what has happened to him and to do what he must to find answers.

well this game is a mad house.
Heya, this was an amazing demo! It really had me on the edge of my seat! I really hope there will be a full release in the near future! Here is a link to the Let's Play I did in case you want to see how scared you made me xD
Such a great demo. Please , please say this is going to become a full game.
I recorded a playthough to help with dev.
So I recorded this late at night and everyone in my household was asleep so I had to talk very quietly Really think this game has great potential thought it was very creepy.
I was expecting ghosts... apparently I need to watch out for toilets now ༼ つ ͠° ͟ ͟ʖ ͡° ༽つ
Check it out watch the video bellow to see my reaction :)
We're not crazy! YOU'RE crazy! The Lunatic tests our mental fortitude and makes us think we're crazy! We're not....right?
The game has a bad habit of walking the player through everything, so it feels like I'm not even playing a video game. Conceptually, the story seems interesting, and I hope it goes somewhere, and the ghosts themselves (if I'm correct) are media created specifically for the game, so good on you for not using pre-made assets!
Really cool scary game, i'm looking forward to seeing what you do in the future.. the ghosts felt really indie, I liked it :)
I liked the design of the ghosts, gameplay seems good, story is interesting. I just had a little issue where I got stuck in the lamp, but thats easily overlooked since I have a penchant for doing that. Good job on the demo, looking forward to the full release!
It works well by successfully building tension, and using sprites to represent apparitions was a nice touch. It gives them this "unreal" quality.
My only real gripe is that one screamer. The voice saying all that stuff to the player was creepy, but the jumpscare directly after was just funny with how obviously placed it was, and ruined the feeling of dread that had been building, as well as any immersion.
Still, only a single gripe is really good for any game, much more so for a horror game. Looking forward to seeing what else you guys come up with.
This was a weird and scary game and kinda funny too, enjoyed it and will get the full release when its out 10/10
Amazing game, I had a lot of fun with it!
Thank you for playing!!! Great video! You didn't check the open isolation room there is a surprise in that room could help you. check it out!
This was a fun wee demo but far too short
played this and just want to say that i really enjoyed it i have high hopes for some future development on this game the atmosphere was brilliant it has a really nice feel to it and i love the art design with the characters this demo has only left me wanting more and i would love to hear sometime in the future if anymore development has been made
I am small YouTuber so anyone who wants to sub it goes a long long way guys hope you enjoy the vid
I HAD FUN WITH IT THANKS
downloading for a streamer who loves indie games twitch name Chaotichunters come check her out
The only thing that scared me was how fast this game was xD Nah but being serious this game was pretty cool and if the monster can actually kill/chase you in the full release that would be awesome :D
After try the trial, This game is really scary. What do you think? it is worth to buy the full game?
Honestly, loved the game, the voice acting was amazing, the textures and various maps used were amazing and ofcourse, the 3D models models used were very well made (i am assuming that you guys made all the assets used)
You guys really nailed the horror feeling of the asylum but using billboarded textures kinda....ummm...well, it was more funny than scary tbh lol (especially when you are able to get close to them, like the man in the morgue). I did loved the placement of lights and many subtle things done. Overall, like i said earlier, i really loved game (and this is coming from someone who hates horror games lol). Also, that red png jumpscare in the cell WAS NOT COOL! (freakin had nightmares about that one.....)
Like others have said good potential. It has an atmosphere to it the game worked properly and the voice acting was good. One issue is I didn't feel much tension while going through the environments after awhile I had no way to lose so I had no reason to feel scared. I would add a timer in the room with the puzzle in which you could fail or do something to build tension. I felt like I was in no rush. It has more going for it than the average hacked together indie horror. I found myself curious as to what would happen next and wasn't able to see the plot a mile away.
The bathroom area was kind of frustrating for me. I knew I had to find something but spamming the mouse button on the toilets didn't give me any sort of direction as to whether I was on the right track. I had to click too many times to find what it was I needed.
In the morgue the puzzle was slightly confusing and I had to use an educated guess to find out what the last item count was supposed to be. The first to where easy enough but It wasn't clear what I was supposed to be looking for on the last one.
I was expecting to get jumpscared at least once but It didn't happen.
But as a whole I did like it. I know how much time and effort games take. So I respect the effort and look forward to see what you create.
There's a lot of potential here! The use of 2d sprites for the ghosts is a neat idea that I don't think I've seen before, so that's really cool! Good luck with the full release!
For just about 7 days the game isn't half bad! The atmosphere can be a little unsettling and the art and other things are pretty well made as well. One thing I could say though is to work on the voice acting a little. Won't fault the game much for that though since I know that voice acting can be tough. Either way a great start to a new game though. Hope to see more of this in the coming future!
I really enjoyed this game. I like the art style and the voice acting was done very well, I hope to see this game fully released someday and figure out the whole story and what's going on. I did a small play-through video in a different kind of style that was just fun for me, so check it out if you want and see this cool game in action!
Bro that game is really nice but not that much scary, hope to see more and more.
It really puts in the creep factor, though I'd suggest putting in the time to make 3d models instead of relying on the 2d models. Beyond that, good job.
I really liked the game! Everything is so scary and unique. Crossfinger's to finish the game to the end.
This game is very interesting! I love the concept of waking up in the mental asylum and trying to find out what’s going on as they try to escape. Plus, the apparitions, such as Daisy and Daisy’s father, are unique as they both look different from each other, yet they add more mystery to the game as to how Justin knew them. Thank you for making this game! I love to play the full version soon!
This game is interesting
haha just kiddin well done man but i mean you should probably make 3d models instead of just having 2d stickers
Thank you! Half & half. Some people liked 2D characters since they are unique. We will use both 2D & 3D characters in the final version.
Really loved the ideas behind the puzzles and i'm pretty intrigued by the story. Looking forward to learning more about it in the full game!
Thank you for playing. There is a short bio on this game page which may answer some of your question.
Really amazing and fun game!!!!
I liked this one, it is a little different to what I usually play and for a demo it was nice and simple to understand, I would love to see the full game when it is done. If I see this on Gamejolt I will give you my full support :)
I don't understand why no one else has hit on the fact that Daisy is literally making your character drink from a toilet in this game. Am I just taking crazy pills or what is going on here?! Seriously, deranged girl.
Fun little demo though. It was like a game called Spooky's Jump Scare Mansion, but with good graphics. And intended for adults. And not cartoony. So I guess it doesn't remind me of that game at all. I'm done. Keep it up guys.
