I quite liked this! The jumpscares were almost too loud, but overall, effective in the good way. The dude flipping me off, was a little silly,out of place. I definitely would like a full game!
I couldn't finish the game. I watched several people play and one of the keys I need, is not there for me.
Thanks for playing, the key is there, it spawns in one of the dolls hands in the small house after the events occur there. Try look at them again.
What is the music at the beginning? Its very strange but I like it.
A bit clunky but game got its vibe. Ending shouldn't be this rushed, feels very abrupt. Also, broken camera effect clearly was taken from "Outlast", so maybe not as obvious next time. Otherwise, pretty good start for the first game.
The game could be optimized further sure. No effect was taken from Outlast, I can assure you. Thanks for your feedback and for playing!
This game is awesome, I like it. I'm waiting for more of this game.
Love the setting of the game! It felt a liiiiittle too small maybe? Or maybe that adds to it, can't quite figure out how I felt about it. Lots going on at all times, but really liked it overall :D
Had some performance issues, but that might've been my PC - really like this, good length and a good level of spooky 😁
This was an awesome horror game and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! Such a creepy atmosphere gave me the chills and I never knew what to expect next!
In the many attempts to play this game, I couldn't. I saw so many post the game running flawlessly but for some reason, once I get to the porch, my mouse starts "Flying blind" meaning, the camera won't move. I am still able to see my cursor hovering over other apps on my screen but it disappears once I hover over the game window, as if it would react but it doesn't. I am running the latest Windows, which would be the only reason I can think of that would cause this sort of malfunction. Please, let me know what's going on so I could finally get a chance and play the final version of this game. Thank you
I had alot of fun with this one
Overall I ended up enjoying most of the experience, and I really appreciate the work that went into making this. More detailed review below with critiques
3rd game in the video - @14:38This game is the definition of too much I think. There is so much happening almost any time you move, sometimes jump scares piled up 3 at a time and I didn't even know what I was supposed to be looking at, leaving me confused and worn out from so much noise. Some of those scares were really good though, I especially like the woman screaming on the car. The inventory system is ridiculous, took too much trial and error to get a key to work. Once understood it I could do it, but it was also pulling you away from the game a lot at the same time. Just a frustrating system. The health system didn't seem applicable, I'm not sure if anything actually caused me damage, or if anything could, and there is no health bar to be seen, so consumables seemed to be a waste. The same for the flashlight batteries, they seemed to be a waste. The flashlight didn't really help much at all, and the battery seemed to drain even when not using it. The refillable cartridges only giving back one bar was frustrating as well. There is also so much in each of the rooms that it makes it so hard to see what it is you are looking for, I overlooked keys a few times. And had to intensely stare for a long time to eventually find them later. But overall I still enjoyed the game, despite being overstimulated and not understanding the ending at all. And I do really appreciate that there is so much put into this game, and can still say that you did a great job.
Very good game. Congrats to the developer
I really enjoyed this game! Very well done!
BUT, did I overcome my fear of dolls?
cool little game.
The game has creepy atmosphere. Was interesting to play. Also I really liked the music.
Creepy Game. Creepy Doll. Creepy Hands. Everything is creepy !
Thanks for playing glad you enjoyed the game, you found one of the secrets in the game as well!
Well then she wasn't too happy with her love of BRAINS...
Scary Ass Game
Thanks for playing ( v.0.05 FINAL)
Thanks for playing Crowl!
Really solid play through of my game Perdita! Thank you IGXL Insane Gaming XL for playing and for reaching out!
I love this game even though I got fully stuck and couldn't figure out how to progress up the stairs. The ambiance and the spooky atmosphere was amazing and really had me immersed. I did run into a glitch the first time through. I show that in the first minute of the video. I did play the most recent version of it. I can't wait to see more from you.
Hey thank you for playing! You should be able to fully look around and i haven't seen anyone have this issue. The key to the dinner room, spawns on one of the pinhead dolls inside the small house, after the event with the music box is triggered. Hope this helps you progress further! Cheers.
Thank you so much for your advice. I was able to finish your game. It was absolutely amazing, fun and spook-tatsic. I have the second half up on my channel. Yesterday on Reddit someone was talking about a flooded house in louisiana and wanted a game like that. I told them what perdita was about and I honestly hope they check it out. They used to live in manchac. I can't wait for your next game!! <3 Zombi
P.s. in case you want to see.
Just watched your playthrough! Thank you for playing and i am glad i could help you complete the game. A few cool things though, there are 3 secrets in the game, 2 relating to the story. If you look closely with your flashlight turned on against the mirror in the bathroom, you can see Julia and her her unborn child. You can also open windows by pressing E, and outside the window by the bathroom you can see the real body of Julia after she committed suicide. Now for the final secret, i see you enjoyed the mannequin room, now if you stay long enough inside the game, the one mannequin which head doesen't follow you will actually become alive and track your every movement and follow you around in the house. My next game is AKAI NOROI, a Asian / Japanese horror folklore inspired game, and is a lot more horrifying then my previous game, track development here if you want to, hope to release in around 1 month! https://www.indiedb.com/games/akai-noroi
Wooohooo! hahaha yeah nice game nice fun :D
Once again, thank you so much for playing! AKAI NOROI is coming soon!
Thanks for playing everyone! The final patch + major content update is now out, and i encourage you all to re-download or try the game! Thanks for all the support! *Reuploading build might take a while*!
Perdita Final Build v0.05 Is now live, featuring patch + major content update, new explore able area, explore the old wrecked house Julia and Charles used to live in before Charles built the main house!
Start of video. Game spooked me a good number of times, just experienced the sad but progressive game breaking bug. I'll stick around to see future updates.
Thanks for playing! Yeah i might do a little update soon. Honestly a strange bug, It's only that one spot that very rarely can throw you out of the map, but i just fixed the issue, and will be doing a update soon also altering some gameplay stuff. *EDIT* Update is out now, hope you will try the game again!
awesome game! :D
Thanks for playing glad you enjoyed the game. I might do a patch when i have some time to fix some bugs soon! In the meanwhile be on the look out for my other games in development and have fun!
So I will be waiting for the development of this game and now I am taking care of the rest of your games ;)
🎀 WHAT THE HECK IS THIS? | Perdita Full Gameplay Walkthrough
Thanks for playing, even though you didn't really get far, you should have read the hint in the beginning about checking the porch, the key to the dinner room is located behind the house there, also you should check behind the cracked wood in the bathroom for a key to the fishing room where you need gas to remove the arms / eyes at the stairs. Anyway the game has a lot of story and secrets and is actually based upon a real legend, sorry if you didn't enjoy it! Might not be everyone's cup of tea.
Loved playing this horror game. the atmosphere, storytelling, the mystery behind what occurred in the house. I never once got bored playing this even when I struggled to find the key in the bathroom. Overall you made a wonderful game! can't wait to try out other games made by you.
Thanks for the nice words, and i enjoyed your play through! Besides stuff changing in some rooms the longer you stay in them, there is actually 3 more secrets in the game, one you almost found, in the bathroom if you shine your flashlight at the mirror you will see Julia and her unborn child. Also if you look closely and look up and zoom out the window in the bathroom you will see the real body of Julia hanging from a tree as detailed in the final journal. Finally the last secret is if you stay long enough in the game, a mannequin will become alive and follow and track your every movement. The game wasn't perfect, but i am glad you enjoyed it so much! For my next game everything will be better, and you will also have a horrifying AI to deal with. It is called AKAI NOROI, you can learn more about my next game here: https://www.indiedb.com/games/akai-noroi

Thanks for playing. The key to progress upstairs is located inside the fishing room, and found in the crack in the wood inside the bathroom. Seems you had some glitch in the end, might look into this. Thanks.
