This game really is something special. Rarely do I ever see something that so clearly has so much love and care put into making a vision come to life. It really feels like a look into a truly unique world.
Very interesting and creepy game. I really enjoyed playing this game and I did a playthrough that I will link below if you are interested in seeing my reaction.
10/10 a FUCKING masterpiece, this game has SOOOO much more soul than half of the AAA horror games coming out today. today you gained a fan :)
Really fun and creepy game with some very strange characters. The puzzles aren't too difficult, but definitely enjoyable so far. Here's the first part of my gameplay, thanks so much!
An interesting game. Great story. We had a lot of fun with it.
It was an awesome game and story, simple with good satisfaction. Just expect a little more horror theme but it is fine. Thanks man for such a great work!
Is this the full version and it's for free?
I feel ashamed of calling my game "Lynchian" compared to this one, which I feel perfectly captures that tone. I sense an influence from Lost Highway?
The writing is so clean yet evocative, my favorite piece of text being the note about the mirror (Best note in any game hands down).
This game is my ideal level of scary; the horror serves the narrative and vice versa, it doesn't feel gratuitous at any point. However more compelling about this game is the overwhelming sense of loneliness and malaise the designer has created through a combination of tone, music, writing and atmosphere.
My one criticism is the visuals leave something to be desired, but even then it didn't distract me, besides; I imagine this is just a stepping stone to future efforts which makes me incredibly excited for future projects.
I'm pretty impressed, the story kept me engaged and it remained interesting throughout.. the ending is something I see people complain about but I actually enjoyed it.
It almost feels like something David Lynch would have created in a way.. it leaves mystery
I didn't want it to end, but I felt it was just the right amount of gameplay .. I like that we were left with some mystery... what we know for sure is when you arrive, you don't leave.
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.
I think the ending worked.. it reminded me of something like a David Lynch movie where things are open ended and many things are left unexplained.. it leaves an uneasy feeling..
Lynch did that with Eraserhead, Lost Highway and of course Twin Peaks.. that's sort of the vibe I got here.. I'm not sure I would change the ending.. I of course would love to see more background or expansion on the characters.. but that would go against the mystery and certainly wouldn't be something Lynch would do .. that's why I like it as it is :)
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!
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 -
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!
I'm a big fan of Mark and have been there since his channel started and I must admit, I never saw him play this.. I must have missed out, but in a way I'm glad I did because it let me experience it for the first time on my own without having seen any gameplay footage..
I only got stuck once and was tempted to find a playthrough until it dawned on me.. ( without giving away too much.. the red light switch in the hall ) .. I wasted about 15 minutes feeling like I hit a dead end in the game or that it glitched out on me or something until i figured it out.
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.
Watched Markiplier play this demo and now I'm super excited to play the full game myself! Can't wait until it's released!
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!
Thanks for checking it out, and for the offer, but I'm handling the music for the game myself.
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.
