This was incredible! Obviously very simple gameplay wise but the atmosphere is massively tense and the way you've made it look like it's come straight from VHS is phenomenal!!
Loved it. So well done and creepy. I didn't want it to end.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHkTu7oUAfU Hey, I played your game in my video from today and I loved it! Even though, it was very short I liked it a lot. The VHS style was very cool, whenever I play horror games with that style I just find it really cool and interesting. I really hope though, there will be more to this game in the future because I want more! :)
Short and creepy. I love the VHS effect and the realistic quality to the game. Immersive and unsettling in all the right ways. Great game ♡
Really enjoyed the game! I like how your games subvert the horror in interesting ways. [Analysis/Thoughts Below. Subtitles are available!]
Honestly one of the best horror games I've ever played.
I rate this game 1.000/10 i loved it so much, I can't wait for December 2000, here's my Playthrough of the game incase anyone wanted to watch :3
Great game loved every bit of it played it on steam cant wait for December 2000 :)
With its nice 1990's camera look and creepy as hell atmosphere... This was a pretty nice game. Please let there be more of this...
O ne of the most unsettling horror experiences in a while. Well done!
Cool I like it! I Was Played Steam but That's Cool!
With this and OK/NORMAL, 98DEMAKE has a knack for putting together a deeply unsettling atmosphere. Highly recommended.
sent me through a loop with how realistic this all looked! Nice work
Yup. I'm currently working on a longer continuation for this one!
That was really good! Nice job on that!
Really good game, it's nice to have a horror experience that isn't too involved, it's almost laid back but really good, really enjoyed it :D
Had so much fun and really liked the game! September 1999 has so much potential if it ever gets a full version. Made a 3 scary games video, and it's the first one :)
Nicely done game. Great audio horror. The only problem I had was it's not longer! Abrupt ending but the playthrough itself makes it worth it.
Had a super messy playthrough of this game but really enjoyed it all the same! :D
Tense little game with a really immersive graphics filter, great stuff!
This game has a really good atmosphere, I love it! :D Greetings from Germany!
Preeeetty creepy. I can dig it.
Gave it a go...
Good Little game with great graphics and sound effects which give a good found footage feel. Heres my playthrough:
This was such a cool horror experience! The VHS filter truly looked awesome and definitely added to the dark and terrifying atmosphere!
Decided to record this since I've had the same content for the entirety of my channel. However, this is really well made and actually conveys a series of different possible stories. Well done!
Awesome little game, I didn't really read any comments before playing so when I launched it, I stared for a minute thinking it was real? Haha, those 5 Minutes had me drawn in, I couldn't figure out what was happening but then I was like Oh S**T.. Love the atmophere and visuals, very impressive. Here's the full playthrough with no commentary.
Have a great day, can't wait to see what else you plan to release!
Really like the movement and atmosphere feels very polished, was wondering how you achieved the camera effect in the engine? it really makes things look photo realistic.
I know I'm late to the party with this, but I enjoyed my time with it. It definitely feels like a part of a larger experience, quite similarly to how I felt about the RE7 guest house intro. My main "complaint" would be that nothing was really interactable. Even if it had no effect on the story at all, it would have been nice to fiddle with things to fill up time instead of waiting around. Anyways, I'd love to see more of your work in the future, keep it up!
P.S. Is it just a coincidence that this is set right after The Blair Witch? I don't think the stories are linked or anything, but the date is so close it seems intentional.
I think I may have discovered the truth of this game and the results may HORRIFY YOU #TakeItUpANotch
Friend and I really enjoyed this little experiment, hope to see more similar (and longer?) games from you.
Real Short, But I really like this concept !
Waow... That was really something. I'm actually at a loss for words. The visuals, the camera movement, the sounds and the music; it all just created a really unsettling mood, that I haven't experienced in a long time.
I really hope that you will dabble a bit more with this "found footage" vhs-like visual because you nailed it. What a gem you have created here.
Super atmospheric. The VHS effects and aspect ratio made the whole feel of the game a lot more interesting.
