Lonely Things is a first-person story driven adventure game. 
Explore a remote hotel and get to know the people who stay there.

A long way from anywhere, and almost asleep at the wheel, you check 
in to a hotel off the side of some blank, nameless road. 

Rather than getting the long night's sleep you wanted, you wake up in
the dark to the sound of a knock at the door. Your car is gone.

I really enjoyed this game, the whole aesthetic was amazing. I enjoyed the characters, however and this is a big however. The ending ruined the game, I'm sorry, that twist wasn't good and it just didn't fit in with the progression. I like the game a lot don't get me wrong, but that ending was just bad. One more edit, the OST was amazing.


Really good game, thanks so much!

I thoroughly enjoyed it, I'm glad the hotel's layout was improved and more light was added.. that little change made a huge difference. The updated and added interactions were well done, and though the ending and revealed plot were not what I expected.. it was a good twist!
Thank you!


Let me tell you that I love this OST. Especially the "Sinking" one.

The title says it's about lonely things; then why am I not in the game, I'm a lonely thing. What in the heck frick.


I find myself curious on the mystery of what I call a 'Dark Romance' type of horror XD Well, I'll dive in and give my take.


and the delicious Part 2 - 


Part 3 and one more for this interesting game - 


A great finale, although tons of theories to be had on the meaning

Working my way through the full game which was just updated with a minor fix regarding some of the conversations. Got an email regarding that which is a nice thought. Found it via Markiplier's video of the Demo version. For those that have played the Demo, the complete version is very similar to the Demo to the point where the Demo ends. which is only the beginning. Not 100% the same. A few things have been modified in the full version which is to be expected.

The story continues well past the Demo ending and gets creepier with each task completed. Haven't finished it yet. So far the story shows decent depth in the major characters and the mystery of the hotel. Tasks to be completed all relate to gradually revealing the narrative. IMHO it's a very nicely done Indie game using the Unity engine. Looking forward to seeing Markiplier play the full version. His reactions are priceless!

Congrats on finishing the game! Judging from the screenshots, looks like you really improved the graphics. Looks so much cleaner and sharper now. I'll play it soon when I can~

EDIT: Hey, it looks like the product can't accept Paypal at the moment? Might want to check that out.

Sorry about that - should be good to go now!

Watched Markiplier play this demo and now I'm super excited to play the full game myself! Can't wait until it's released!

Thanks! It shouldn't be too long now at all.  

i really like this game and i can't wait for the full release. 8bitgaming and markiplier have played this which has sent me here

Hey everyone! Today I played the Lonely Things demo which is available for free on itch.io. My overall impression is that even though it is a little rough around the edges (and not without its bugs) the game is wonderfully done and offers the player a unique experience as they wander around a maniacal hotel and interact with its dubious residents. Overall the game was fun to play and I look forward to the full release later this year!

Id love to see more of this game!

part one so good!

Hello, cool horror game.  Are you interested in some custom music/sfx?  Hit me up here or at my Soundcloud.  I've done work for other itch.io projects.

Thanks for checking it out, and for the offer, but I'm handling the music for the game myself.

Enjoyed this greatly! Look forward to a full release!

I enjoyed this a lot! This demo shows a lot of potential!

Good luck with the full game!

Quelle ambiance! C’est lugubre, mystérieux et la table est mise pour un excellent jeu!

Absolutely  awesome demo! I went in thinking it was one of those "serious yet horribly made" games, and was completely taken aback by a story setup that belies a darker and really interesting story! Hope to see this finished

Had a great time playing this quiet little demo of yours

Amazing game!!! Cool and interesting narrative!!

This was awesome!  It was ver yspooky and fun!  Can't wait for the full game to come out soon :) 

This game was weird and scary, and I quite enjoyed it.

Well this was just a big barrel of weird served up with a side of odd! But I mean that in the nicest possible way!

All of the characters really stood out in their own unusual little ways, and you can sense there's a really big story bubbling under the surface of this game. There were a few occasions where things didn't quite work as they should have, but I managed to get through everything in the end.

Keep up the great work, can't wait to see what happens next in this hotel from hell!

This was a really stylized game, liked the interesting story and characters presented so far and I'm looking forward to the final game.

I have a couple concerns, but it's still a cool game and I can't wait for the full version!

Played this game a few weeks ago. It's so good, i love everything about it from the atmosphere to the art style. Very good!

Very very nice! Great spooky atmosphere, mysterious shenanigans, and weird characters. Very interested in the final product.

Lovely little spoopy demo!

Very cool creepy game cant wait for the full release very promising

Spent quite a chill,scary and not so lonely time in this mansion.Looking forward to the full version

Had a really good time playing this, thanks!! Looking forward to the full game.

This was a pretty weird game. I don't mean that in a bad way just things I didn't quite understand like the monster plants and, why they all had yellow eyes. From what I understood they were all suppose to be ghosts but,  got confused with everything else added in. It's pretty dynamic and, I enjoyed the atmosphere.

The freakin' art style for this game was glorious. The creep factor was decent, but I found it much more interesting exploring the "empty" environment.

Wrote a review about your game to tell our fans:


Keep up the good work =]!

Hello there, I'm having issues trying to play this game. I downloaded it to my windows PC, but the "down" button is perpetually being pressed, even though I'm giving no player input. To even hit begin, I had to counteract the action that kept hovering over escape by holding up and clicking my mouse. Once in the game, my character kept spinning in a circle while looking down. I couldn't break him out of it or stop it, though I could hit the menu button (but it always went to the very bottom input for Escape). I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, but that didn't help. I even tried playing it on a controller, but the same issues persisted. As it is, it's completely unplayable to me, so if you know what's wrong or how I can fix it, please let me know!

Hi - this is the first time I've heard of this problem.

The movement input works by listening for input on an axis, which has a deadzone of 50%. The only reason I can think of for this happening is that your keyboard's down key is sitting above that threshold at all times. Even if you are using a gamepad, the game still listens for keyboard inputs and switches if a key is pressed.

I know it isn't optimal, but you could try removing the keyboard from it's USB slot before/when you start the game, and then trying controller input. If the issue persists, either your gamepad is also above 50% (seems unlikely) or you've found a bug in the game I'll need to try and replicate. If it doesn't, then your keyboard down key must be registering as pressed. 

Let me know if you try removing the keyboard and what the result is. 

Hi Jamie! I figured it'd be easier to show a video of the issue, so I attached it here so you can see what I'm talking about. It's easier than trying to type an explanation, haha. I hope this helps you a little to try and figure out what's wrong.

I mean it`s much better than anything i can do so i guess it`s not that bad.

This game had a really, really interesting vibe to it. It was a bit of sad, a lot of tension, and some interesting mechanics. I have to say, it did get me pretty bad towards the latter half of the game! 

I am so very intrigued by your game, the demo gave me so much and I really really want a full game! This has so much soul and lore to it, I had so much fun playing it!
