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

Any plans to make  longer/ more interactive game in this style because I would be so excited to see that

Yup. I'm currently working on a longer continuation for this one!

Can't wait!!

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. 

Honestly, the most amazing found footage type game I've ever played. Photorealistic style + the unobtrusive camera filter really makes this great. I hope you continue to take advantage of this style to create a fully fledged game. I love this.  Here is my playthrough on Twitch.

After a third try, I finally finished this.  

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! 

I've watched somebody's gameplay already, but I still wanted to try & experience it on my own. But nope... I can't do it. As silly & ridiculous my reaction was, it was the truth.  I'll play SEPTEMBER 1999 from beginning to end someday. 

Good job for making a something like this though. Definitely deserving of the attention  it's been getting.  I, along with many people, will be following to see what more you make in the future. 

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! 

Nice Game

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. 

Thank you.

Thank you for playing. Will definitely dabble more in to this concept!

Super atmospheric. The VHS effects and aspect ratio made the whole feel of the game a lot more interesting.

I created a review for September 1999's awesome release on Steam, so here's that bit: https://steamcommunity.com/id/padresnowmizzle56783/recommended/952250/

In addition, here's the video I created to boot: 

Neat game. I really enjoyed it. Keep it up man

watch video here:

Hey! Do you remember that I said you the Linux version does not work properly? Can I get the newest compiled version and test it again?

I saw the release of the game on Steam. It would be nice if all three platforms were there ;)

Now I have the newest Debian version, I can test it also on Intel or AMD graphics.

And.... please compile the game for 64-bit machine if you can, maybe there was a problem here.

It gave me the heebie jeebies

Really Interesting concept, also chilling experience.

Looks so good that I was almost convinced that it was real footage.

Really good work!

This would honestly work so well in VR

Loved the atmosphere of the game, although it was confusing since there's no "purpose" in that regard...

A decent little game. Love the 90s VHS style of the graphics but wasn't really sure what I was supposed to be doing! 

I loved this. Excellent work Developers. Please turn this into a full game. The art and atmosphere are amazing. 

This was a really cool experience... what have i done?

Great atmosphere. Not sure I knew exactly what was going on, but I feel like that was on purpose. The graphics were really amazing, almost looked real in parts.

"Parts" lol. "SPOILERS" ;-)

well now it's a spoiler :)

Well I guess I forgot to post the (Low quality) video I made here soooo...:

Edit: I forgot to mention that I love the game.

P.T is gone, but the impact it did still lingers just like you can see in this short demo. September 1999 takes that small confined location and make you put out your own theories of what's going on, who am I and why people are dying here.
